Situation Report | April 19, 2021
National Government Services (NGS), New York’s Jurisdiction 6 Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC), requested that we notify our home health and hospice members about an upcoming webinar for Medicare providers on cost reports.
The webinar will be held by CGI Administrators, a MAC for other regions, though the webinar is open to all providers wishing to attend on Thursday, April 29 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Registration is here.
Providers will learn about the new user-friendly upload feature for the Medicare Cost Report e-Filing (MCReF) system. It allows providers to submit documents without turning them into ZIP files, tag documents, and get alerts about missing cost report documents. The webcast will provide an overview of the MCReF system, along with a questions and answer session.
Medicare providers have the option to electronically transmit their cost report through MCReF or mail or hand deliver it to the MAC. Providers must use MCReF if you choose to submit electronically.
Registrants may send questions in advance of the webcast to OFMDPAOQuestions@cms.hhs.gov with “MCReF Webcast” in the subject line.
See additional information on MCReF in the Medlearn Matters article here.
