CMS Advances Provider-Based Hospice Cost Report Changes

Posted on Friday, September 25, 2015 2:06 PM

CMS has been working to revise all hospice cost reports to require reporting of costs by level of care and require greater cost detail overall since 2013. Since then, there have been new developments in this area, including the following:

  • Home Health Agency Cost Report Instructions with proposed revisions
  • Form CMS-1728-94 with proposed revisions
  • Revisions to Form CMS-1728-94 HHA Cost Report Application/Update Form (crosswalk)
  • Supporting Statement for Form CMS-1728-94 Home Health Agency Cost Report

  On September 18, CMS posted a request for a second review of the hospital-based hospice cost report changes (Form CMS-2552-10).  The supporting documents for this review have not yet been posted online but NAHC has secured copies as follow:

  • CMS-2552-10 DRAFT Instrument
  • CMS-2552-10 DRAFT Instructions
  • CMS-2552-10_PRA_Crosswalk
