HCA Data Webpage Now Includes 2018 CHHA Cost Report Data 

Situation Report | June 29, 2020

HCA Data, an online library of data reports for members only, now includes an HCA-developed spreadsheet of the 2018 Medicaid Cost Reports for all non-hospital-based Certified Home Health Agencies (CHHAs) operating in the state.

At HCA Data, see under “Home Health and Hospice Medicaid Data Resources” for “New (Updated June 29, 2020): 2018 CHHA Cost Report.”

HCA Data provides data reports to assist home care and hospice providers and managed care plans in their benchmarking efforts, understanding of system-wide trends, and access to reimbursement and premium rates. The page is not visible on our site unless you are logged in with an HCA member website account.

Our log-in page is here: https://hca-nys.org/login. Upon login, the HCA Data link will appear in the site menu at the top right (though you may have to refresh your browser first). Simply e-mail HCA’s Membership Director Laura Constable at lconstable@hcanys.org if you do not yet have an HCA website account.

Some of the information available in HCA’s spreadsheet of the 2018 CHHA cost reports includes: operating margins based on reported revenues and expenses, payor source data, visits by discipline, number of patients served, average costs per discipline and most recent Medicaid payment rates.

HCA has submitted a freedom of information act request to the state Department of Health (DOH) for the fourth quarter 2019 Medicaid Managed Care Operating Reports (MMCORs) for each Managed Long Term Care (MLTC) plan and Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) plan in the state, which we expect to receive from the Department in the fall.

HCA will then prepare a detailed spreadsheet summarizing key MMCOR data, including such items as: plan enrollments; per-member-per-month premium revenue and premium income; balance sheet data; contingent reserves and escrow balances; additional funding for minimum wage; unit costs; utilization data; and other information. HCA Data currently has 2018 MMCOR data available to members.
