Medicare Cost Reports
With more than twenty years of experience, Manis & Ryan prepares Medicare Cost Reports for health care providers nationwide, from way up there in frigid Alaska, down into balmy Puerto Rico.
Your Medicare Cost Report is the critical financial document CMS uses to help set future Medicare Payment Rates. It’s just that important. Take a look at the small print below your signature on the report: you’ll see that CMS estimates the time to complete the Cost Report process to be at least 176 hours. In other words, if you had one person perform every step, the estimated hours would amount to at least 4 to 5 weeks of work. CMS also provides you a window of 5 months to file your Cost Report (no extensions allowed!). With this much time allotted, the message is clear: CMS fully expects your Medicare Cost Report to be prepared accurately and filed on time.
To prepare your Medicare Cost Report, Manis & Ryan uses our own Web-Based CMS-Approved Cost Reporting Software: “Spirit of 1728”.
Your Medicare Cost Report is only as good as the accounting used to prepare it. And CMS’s accounting regulations are every bit as complex as the regulations governing preparation the Medicare Cost Report itself.
Clients nationwide trust Manis & Ryan to help establish their accounting practices and recordkeeping, to insure all financial and statistical data reconciles seamlessly into their Medicare Cost Report. (This, believe it or not, helps you sleep at night.)
Please review our Accounting Checklist, attached. Let us know, by checking the corresponding boxes, those service which interest you; which you’d like to discuss and perhaps have us provide. Select only those services you want; you are not obligated to retain us for every service.
Finally, a good thing to remember: The Medicare Program reimburses healthcare providers nationwide, collectively, billions of dollars. That’s billions with a “B”. CMS, in exchange, wants an accounting of that - an accurate accounting. We suggest you trust the experts with your accounting: Trust Manis & Ryan.
