Federal Offsets are problematic and time consuming for all parties involved. Accordingly, it is imperative that there is full cooperation and communication regarding these issues.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services is processing refunds on favorable appeals to offsets. All agencies must inform the General Accounting Office (GAO) of any refunds received to Federal offsets. We need this information to ensure that the State has been properly, and fully, reimbursed for all costs incurred related to the Federal offset. If GAO receives the refund, we will coordinate with the applicable State agency to ensure that the deposit is properly credited.
We appreciate your cooperation in ensuring Federal offsets are properly resolved.
