AN ACT EXTENDING COST REPORTING DEADLINES FOR LONG-TERM CARE FACILITIES

SUMMARY: This act extends, from December 31 to February 15, the annual deadline for long-term care facilities to submit fiscal year (ending September 30) cost reports to the Department of Social Services (DSS). DSS uses the reports to establish per diem rates for facilities caring for Medicaid-eligible residents. The department may reduce rates by up to 10% for failure to submit complete and accurate reports by the deadline.

The act also extends, from February 15 to April 1, the annual date by which DSS must report the data in the reports to the Appropriations Committee.

EFFECTIVE DATE: July 1, 2015
