As if we didn’t already have enough information to track to prepare the Medicare cost report, we now get to untangle the challenges of 2020. During this two-part session, we will provide an understanding on how information gathered to prepare the Medicare cost report is entered onto the forms, as well as education on the key elements of the Medicare cost report that have a direct impact on reimbursement.  In addition, we will share tools that can be used to evaluate your Medicare cost report for potential opportunities.  Finally, we will provide an update on any current legislation regarding COVID-19 as it relates to both the preparation of the Medicare cost report and the reimbursement impact.
