Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, CHIA is postponing the FY2019 deployment of all nursing facility cost reports. The deployment dates and due dates will be determined at a later time.
CHIA collects Nursing Facility Cost Reports on an annual basis. The reports are used by CHIA and other public entities for monitoring costs and for health care payment policy development. Nursing facilities must submit these cost reports in accordance with 957 CMR 7.00 and the filing requirements set out in the cost report forms and instructions.
Historically, nursing facilities submitted all cost reporting through INET, CHIA’s web-based transaction service. Each entity must file a Non-Confidential Data Security Agreement. Cost report submitters must also complete a CHIA INET User Agreement for Nursing Facilities if they have not already done so.
For assistance with the nursing facility cost report, please contact CHIA's Pricing Cost Report Help Desk at (617) 701-8297.
