The prospective payment system (PPS) for Medicare is unique to Community Health Centers and to receive payments for services rendered to Medicare patients, Health Centers must manage several aspects of the program to include establishing charges for G codes, geographic adjustment factors (GAF), and completing a cost report form.  This session will focus on the Medicare cost report form, providing an overview of the worksheets that need to be completed, the data that must be compiled to correctly complete the cost report, and a discussion as to why this form is still an important part of Medicare reimbursement.

Learning Objectives:

  • Develop a good understanding of how the Medicare cost report functions.
  • Learn about the data that must be maintained to be able to complete the cost report form.
  • Understand the importance of the Medicare cost report in the current reimbursement environment.
