The Center for Health Information and Analysis (CHIA) is now collecting cost reports for the fiscal year (FY) 2021 from Adult Foster Care (AFC) providers. CHIA collects these reports pursuant to regulation 957 CMR 6.00. The reports are used by CHIA and other public entities for monitoring costs and for health care payment policy development. Dual providers of both Adult Foster Care (AFC) and Group Adult Foster Care services (GAFC) services must file separate cost reports.
AFC providers are required to submit the following:
CHIA only accepts cost reports in .xlsx format. Supporting documents such as the Financial Statements and Statement of Certification should be in PDF format. Additionally, if the numbers on the submitted cost report cannot be traced directly to the financial statements, include a reconciliation of the numbers in the cost report and the financial statements. This may be filed as an Excel spreadsheet attached to the electronic filing of the report.
Providers submit reports and all supplemental items directly to CHIA at email@example.com.
Links to download the Excel cost report and instruction documents are posted in the blue “Report Resources” box on this webpage. Please read all instructions carefully.
The reports are due no later than Wednesday, June 15, 2022.
