FINAL Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 State Medicare Allocations for Survey & Certification
• State, with details for increases allocated pursuant to the State by State review, and additional columns to track supplementary
allocations for targeted surveys, validation surveys, and other factors.
• Review Process for Amounts: The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Regional Offices reviewed each State’s budget
individually, examining workloads, spending patterns, performance, and particular budgetary needs.
• Hospice Funds: Congress appropriated additional funds dedicated to increasing the frequency of recertification surveys for
hospices. These funds must be tracked and accounted for separately.
• Non-Delivery Deductions: A few States have non-delivery deductions, and a few States have a portion of their budgets identified
as benchmarked and subject to an improvement plan due to performance issues.
