The Center for Health Information and Analysis (CHIA) collects Nursing Services Cost Reports (NSR) on an annual basis. CHIA and other public entities use these reports to monitor costs and to develop health care payment rates.
Nursing services providers must submit their cost reports in accordance with 957 CMR 6.00 and the filing requirements set out in the cost report instructions, which can be found in the blue box on this page.
Please be sure to read the Cost Report Instructions and the CHIA Submissions User Guide found under Report Resources PRIOR to beginning work on the cost report.
NOTE: Providers need to complete separate cost reports for each nursing service they provide, i.e., Temporary Nursing Services (TNS), Continuous Skilled Nursing (CSN), and/or Home Health (HHA). Revenues and expenses for each cost report should be reported in an accurate manner. Please read page 4 of the cost report instructions for further details.
Reports are due by Wednesday, May 31, 2023.
The NSR cost report is submitted to CHIA online through CHIA Submissions. You may log into CHIA Submissions with the credentials used in previous years for INET submissions. If you are a new provider or new user and do not have log in credentials, you must register with CHIA as soon as possible. Please consult the NSR CHIA Submissions User Guide for detailed steps on registering with CHIA.
