As part of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requires that all providers of ground ambulance services collect and report expenditures, revenues, utilization, and other data. Our team of experts can help you navigate the Medicare Ground Ambulance Data Collection (MGADC) Survey and reporting process. We leverage our extensive knowledge and experience to guide our partners on allowable costs, provider charges, prospective payments, and appeals for Medicare.
What is the MGADC Survey?
CMS now requires all providers of ground ambulance services to collect and report expenditures, revenues, utilization, and other departmental statistics as part of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018. According to CMS, “Failure to sufficiently submit the required information will result in a 10 per cent reduction to payments under the Ambulance Fee Schedule (AFS) for one year.” It is essential that providers are accurate in their cost survey responses, as it will impact future reimbursement rates.
