Member Input Sought to Enhance May 13 Cost Reporting Webinar

The MHA, in collaboration with Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), will host a webinar via Zoom from 9 to 10 a.m. EDT May 13 to discuss Medicaid cost report completion, submission, acceptance and settlement under the new Community Health Automated Medicaid Processing System Facility Settlement subsystem. This session will provide hospital staff an opportunity to meet the MDHHS cost report staff and leadership team, learn how to address potential issues presented by the changes, and engage in a question-and-answer session to improve the cost report life cycle under the new system.

Hospitals are encouraged to participate in this webinar, which is targeted to hospital staff who complete and submit the cost report and consulting or accounting firms hospitals use to assist with cost reports. The webinar is offered free of charge and no registration is required.

To enhance the value of the session, the MHA is seeking input by May 11 from member hospital staff regarding topics they would like the webinar to cover, including questions on the completion, submission and acceptance process for the cost report. The MHA will share this information with the MDHHS in advance so the identified issues can be addressed during the event. Members with questions should contact Jason Jorkasky at the MHA.
