Preliminary Testing Audits of PBJ Data

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has begun a pilot testing program to audit Payroll-Based Journal (PBJ) data.

Granite Dolphin and Myers and Stauffer audit teams are focused on examining payroll records and other auditable data to identify if staffing is accurately reported based on paid hours. As such, information requested may include information from payroll, timekeeping systems, invoices or contracts for contracted staff and interviews with staff responsible for PBJ data entry and submission.

The audits may take place on or off site.
