Why Can’t I Just Enter the PS&R Information into the S-3 I?

S-3 I statistical information is not the same as your PS&R information, which is entered into the S-3 Part IV worksheet. The reason is because the PS&R is based on the number of visits and charges included in episodes completed during the cost report year.

The S-3 Part I information, on the other hand, refers to the actual number of visits and patients which took place/ who were seen during the cost report year.

While the numbers may not be significantly different, it is important to try to report the figures accurately. The S-3 I information should come from your billing software or records.

The number of Medicare visits on the PS&R and on the S-3 I may be similar (within a reasonable percentage), but rarely will be the same.
