Situation Report | October 4, 2021
HCA reminds members that the 2019 Certified Home Health Agency (CHHA) Statistical Report and Hospice Cost and Utilization Report are due October 8.
Access DOH’s Dear Administrator Letter here.
All CHHAs, Long Term Home Health Care Programs (LTHHCPs) and hospices are required to complete and submit the 2019 reports.
Failure to submit all required information will subject the agency to enforcement action, resulting in the agency being liable for civil penalties for violations under Article 36 (CHHAs and LTHHCPs) or Article 40 (hospices) of the Public Health Law and New York State Medical Facilities Code.
DOH encourages agencies to enter and submit data as early as possible. Agencies that wait until the last few days to enter data may encounter extended system delays and wait times for support due to limited system and personnel resources.
Please note that these reports are different from the Home Care Cost Report, which must be completed by CHHAs, Licensed Home Care Services Agencies and Fiscal Intermediaries. The Home Care Cost Report was posted on August 16 and is due November 15, 2021.
Questions and requests for assistance should be submitted to HCStatRpts@health.ny.gov.
