Does the Provider Reimbursement Review Board ("Board") have jurisdiction to review the Medicare Contractor's determination
of low-income patient ("LIP") adjustment for Sutter Auburn Faith Hospital ("Auburn") for fiscal year ("FY") 2003? Specifically,
Auburn filed an appeal with the Board claiming, amongst other things, that the LIP Supplemental Security Income ("SSI") ratio
published by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services ("CMS") and used by the Medicare contractor in the calculation
of Auburn's LIP adjustment was understated.
