Description
Corrections to the HH PPS Update Notice ---------------------------------The wage index that was published in Addendum A, the FY 2001 Wage Index for Rural Areas -- Pre-floor and Pre-reclassified contains an error. The wage index for New Mexico should be .8497, not .8479. The wage index that was published in Addendum B, the FY 2001 Wage Index for Urban Areas -- Pre-floor and Pre-reclassified contains an error. The wage index for San Jose, CA and Santa Clara, CA (MSA 7400) should be 1.3652, not 1.3656. The wage index for Vallejo-Fairfield-Napa, CA, Napa, CA, and Solano, CA (MSA 8720) should be 1.2847. The typesetting in the notice makes it appear that MSA 8720 has two wage indices, 1.2847 and 1.1030. MSA 8720 has only one wage index and it is 1.2847. The next MSA number listed is 8735 for Ventura, CA and appears to have no wage index. MSA 8735 should have a wage index of 1.1030.
