DMA and the DHHS Controller’s Office are suspending mandatory cost reporting effective December 31, 2009, including reports for community based personal care services. See the memo explaining this.

Please note that this is a suspension, not a complete elimination, of the cost reporting requirement, and that reports which were due prior to December 31, 2009 must still be filed. Providers still need to make entries in their accounting records which would enable them to produce cost reports when the cost reporting requirement is reactivated.
