2011 Cost Report Information

Overview

On December 30, 2011, a cost report information letter for the 2011 reporting period was sent via Information Letter to all contracted providers (except HCS/TxHmL and ICF/IID) through an electronic communication from DADS or DFPS (24 RCC). This letter advised that all documents needed for submitting the 2011 cost report are available at this website.

The due date for the 2011 cost report is March 31, 2012, except for those providers that qualify for Consolidated Cost Reporting.

IMPORTANT - Consolidated Cost Reporting: CBA, CLASS, and PHC providers have special reporting requirements. If the provider's legal entity controls more than one contract within a single program, the provider must submit a Texas Medicaid Consolidated Cost Reporting Schedule for each entity for each program and receive notification from HHSC Rate Analysis of the provider's Consolidated Reporting Group Number(s) as well as a listing of the contract numbers associated with the group number(s) prior to completing the cost report(s). The Texas Medicaid Consolidated Cost Reporting Schedule must be submitted to the HHSC Rate Analysis Department no later than January 31, 2012. See the Specific instructions of the 2011 Texas Cost Report (item number 3 below) for additional details and due dates.

IMPORTANT - Mandatory Reporting Period: The reporting period for the 2011 cost report must reflect correct beginning and ending dates. Cost reports submitted with incorrect reporting periods will not be accepted and will be returned for correction. To assist providers/facilities to determine their correct reporting periods the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) Rate Analysis Department (RAD) has created a list (item number 1 below) containing the contract numbers and specific mandatory reporting periods that must be used for the 2011 cost report.
