    How do you obtain your hourly rate numbers? I thought the hourly rates were to be derived from numbers on the Medicare Reports.

    We use a facility-wide average rate using a specific range position codes. Note I have been advised that since we apply the average rate not to utilize an indirect cost factor. Last year we compared the average rate of one year to a tiered rate system the prior year and there was not a significant variance. Given the large number of facility reporters at the hospital the average facility wide rate is our chosen method.

    No, we don’t use an indirect cost factor either, and we also have tried the tiered rate system and the average rate for specific positions. I agree that the average rate seems to work the best when using reporters to input data. I am wondering in which financial report are you finding the rates to average?

    We use average budgeted salary by department which we obtain annually from finance. We also have a hospital-wide average.
