Transplant Hospital Initial Applications

  • Effective January 1, 2019, transplant programs seeking to participate in the Medicare program must submit a request for Medicare approval to the applicable State Survey Agency (LDH, Health Standards Section). The request must include the information listed on the Transplant Application Checklist.
  • The hospital in which the transplant center is located must submit a revised CMS-855A to its Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) to indicate the addition of a service.
  • Once the MAC notifies the SA of its approval of the revised CMS-855A, a survey may be scheduled.
