A Medicare Cost Report (MCR) collects descriptive data, both Financial and Statistical in nature to identify if a facility has been over or Underpaid for Medicare patients. The data is also utilized to set Prospective payments. MCRs are in place for Institutional Providers, not Physicians, and remain the ONLY national data available for all types of providers, Profit, Not for Profit, and Governmental.
Typical providers are: Hospitals, SNFs, HHA, Hospice, Renal Dialysis centers, FQHC, and CAH (Critical Access Hospitals)
