2016 Cost Report Training
Dates and Locations to be Announced Soon
The DHG Healthcare Hospital Cost Report Training is a comprehensive program providing an in-depth presentation of the Medicare cost report and the key factors that drive reimbursement. By experiencing a combination of hands-on exercises, lectures and class discussions, participants will not only expand their knowledge, but also enhance their ability to assess unique reimbursement issues within their organizations.
Training is divided into two sections and is designed so participants can either attend both levels the same week or attend only one level based on their specific needs and experience. The training is aimed not only towards individuals responsible for preparing the cost report, but also those involved in gathering support for the cost report or utilizing information from completed reports.
Our Level II training features PPS and CAH Tracks. The PPS Track will include Medicare DSH, wage index, and IME/GME, while the CAH Track will focus on allowable costs, cost allocations, and optimal operational strategies. Participants can register for either track depending on their specific needs, or the schedule allows attending both if preferred. Level II also includes a general session for opportunities applicable for all hospitals including Medicare bad debts and worksheet S-10.
A rigorous, hands-on workshop covering the fundamental components of the hospital cost report and Medicare reimbursement. This focused training will include the preparation of a mock cost report.
An intensive seminar covering intermediate reimbursement issues and is designed for individuals who have completed Level I or have some experience with the cost report.
