1. Were the Intermediary's adjustments to the Providers' cost reports for FYE 12/31/97 to eliminate the Providers' claimed
losses on disposition of assets proper?; 2. Did the Intermediary err in determining that the Providers disposed of their assets
on or after December 1, 1997?; 3. Alternatively, is the regulation that eliminates recognition of gain or loss on asset
sales on or after December 1, 1997 invalid, so that the Providers are entitled to losses on disposition of their assets regardless
of the date on which that disposition occurred?
