It Is More Important Than You Think!

The MCR has long been undervalued and underestimated as to its impact on regulatory and reimbursement changes.  This predates the Prospective Payment System (PPS).  But since the inception of the OASIS document, and especially since the inception of PPS, the MCR has been a tool that has greatly shaped (both positively and negatively) our regulatory and reimbursement changes.

Description

The Medicare Home Health Cost Report (MCR) is a form similar to the Tax Return in that it was designed to enable the demographic, operational & financial information for the thousands of Home Health Agencies (HHAs) across the nation to be presented in one standardized format for analysis and review. 

The MCR has long been undervalued and underestimated as to its impact on regulatory and reimbursement changes. This predates the Prospective Payment System (PPS).  But since the inception of the OASIS document, and especially since the inception of PPS, the MCR has been a tool that has greatly shaped (both positively and negatively) our regulatory and reimbursement changes (e.g., the MCR is used to identify Medicare Costs and Profits, and they were used as the foundation for the Rebasing of HH PPS and the HHGM proposal).

The better our industry understands this, the more that we should appreciate the importance of the MCR and the need for accurate information therein.  Please join us for this education session.
