Medicaid Cost Report Workshop for Massachusetts FQHCs
Did you miss AAFCPAs’ FQHC Cost Report Workshop?
AAFCPAs Matt Hutt and Courtney McFarland, at the request of the Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers, presented an interactive Medicaid Cost Report Workshop for Massachusetts Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) and their advisors on March 1, 2017.
The League requested that AAFCPAs present this workshop in response to errors commonly made by health centers in preparing their 2015 Community Health Center Cost Reports (CHCCRs), which significantly and negatively affected the class rate. CHCs are paid at a Medicaid class rate for many services and the basis for the reimbursement is taken from the annual CHCCR.
The 2015 Reports are available for editing on iNet!
In mid-February, Medicaid and the Center for Health Information and Analysis (CHIA) agreed to re-open access to the 2015 CHCCRs so they could be corrected and amended. The amended reports are due to the State by March 17, 2017.
The errors in the CHCCRs are related to incorrect data, incomplete data and a misunderstanding of the functioning of the reports. There are a handful of major and consistent errors which, if corrected, will have a significant impact on the calculated rate from the CHCCR, and optimize health centers’ reimbursements.
This OnDemand Webinar covers:
- Major errors seen in the 2015 CHCCRs
- The most efficient and effective ways to correct and accurately show the CHCCR data
- iNet Submission Tips and Tricks
- How-to and best practice advice for Massachusetts FQHCs and their advisors
