The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued proposed rulemaking in November 2020 that affects current Medicare cost report submissions. The new requirements affect a range of cost report topics, and includes new templates for reporting Medicare bad debt, Medicare Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH), and Worksheet S-10 charity care and total bad debt.

Considerable documentation is now required, and the templates will impose a heavy burden on providers. Join us for our on-demand webcast to learn about the increased complexity associated with the preparation and submission of the Medicare cost report. Key topics we’ll discuss include:

  • Challenges and best practices in obtaining and reporting newly required information
  • The current reimbursement landscape and how recent audits impact how hospitals should complete cost reports with respect to these new requirements
  • How these changes will drive significant provider reimbursement
  • The consequences of failing to comply with new requirements
