How to Navigate New Cost Report Instructions and Exhibits

November 30, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am PST

MossAdams CPE Webinars

Participants of the live webinar will be eligible for 1 free CPE credit.


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 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
