Medicare Cost Report Preparation in Michigan and All Other States
Why is it important to submit a complete and accurate Medicare Cost Report?
It is an annual requirement for every Home Health Care provider. Failure to file an acceptable cost report can cause suspension of reimbursements.
Even though the cost reimbursement mode of payments had ended on September 30, 2000 with the Prospective Payment System took effect October 1, 2000, the Medicare Regulations on Medicare Cost Report never changed. Noncompliance can cause the government to file actions against the HHA.
In some states, noncompliance with Medicare regulations can disqualify providers to participate on the State Medicaid Program. Medicare cost report data is used to determine the reimbursement rates for Medicaid Program.
The Medicare program reimburses costs for flu vaccines and covered osteopathic drugs. A proper and complete cost report filing is need to insure proper cost reimbursement.

Exceeded our expectations!
This is the first year we are working with Maria Elizabeth. From our first face-to-face meeting, we were impressed with how prepared she was coming to the meeting. She provided us with insights into how she works which gave us a certain level of confidence that this is the relationship that we want to pursue. Her communications were prompt, with replies coming in as short as within an hour. We have yet to have one occasion when we did not hear back from her! Most importantly, her advise were always spot-on. She is obviously up-to-date with the most current tax legislation and, the rare times she did not have the information in her finger tips, she researched on it and we were back on track with hardly any time lost. Based on our experience, we have no hesitation to recommend Maria Elizabeth to anyone looking for a hands-on Tax Advisor.
