Updated: October 14, 2014
The submission deadline for the Cost and Reimbursement Comparison Schedule (CRCS) for Fiscal Year 2012-13 is November 30, 2014.
MANDATORY CRCS REQUIREMENT:
Participants in the LEA Medi-Cal Billing Option (LBO) Program are required to annually certify, through the CRCS process, that the public funds expended to provide LBO Program services are eligible for federal financial participation. Therefore, continued enrollment in the LBO Program is contingent upon timely submission of the CRCS each fiscal year. Failure to meet this requirement may result in removal from the LBO Program.
LEA ANNUAL REIMBURSEMENT REPORT:
NOTE: The LEA Annual Reimbursement Report will assist LEAs to complete CRCS Worksheets A-4 and B-4. LEAs should verify the reasonableness between your internal accounting system and the LEA Annual Reimbursement Report and accurately input encounters, units and reimbursement information for each procedure code/modifier combination on your CRCS form. Potential discrepancies between the LEA Annual Reimbursement Report and your internal system numbers should be documented to support the numbers you input on the CRCS forms and to provide an accounting documentation trail for review and audit. (Please note quarterly reimbursement reports are no longer available.

Per the Audit Review and Analysis Section (ARAS) of A&I, effective immediately, ARAS will be implementing a 100% withhold on providers who are more than 30 days past the due date of the CRCS. The 100% withhold will be lifted once the delinquent CRCS has been submitted and has passed the acceptance review.
