Today, June 2, the Department of Health (DOH/the Department) held its home care cost report Virtual Relaunch Cost Report Walk Through Session for providers. The PowerPoint slides and recording of the relaunch session can be found in the cost report software tool tomorrow. A recording of the May 27 session also will be accessible within the cost report tool tomorrow.
Recently, DOH issued a Dear Administrator Letter (DAL) outlining the relaunch process, which can be found here.
In the DAL, DOH highlighted that the Cost Report is still required to be submitted using 2019 data for providers that receive Medicaid reimbursement related to personal care, CDPAP, and CHHA funding streams. Providers not required to complete the cost report include Assisted Living Program (ALP) only agencies, private pay only agencies and hospital-based CHHAs.
The time frame for submission of the cost report will begin on June 3 when DOH and KPMG send to providers their log-in credentials for the tool. The cost report will be due at the end of October.
DOH and KPMG have committed to conducting extensive outreach and providing support to providers throughout the cost report submission and audit process.
Additional details are available in the DAL found here.
