Palmetto just issued a notice that CMS has delayed filing deadlines for cost reports. I’ve pasted in the Q&A (available on the Palmetto website) below:
Question: Will CMS delay the filing deadline of Fiscal Year End (FYE) December 31, 2019 cost reports due at the end of May due to the Covid-19 outbreak?
Answer: Yes, 42 CFR §413.24(f)(2)(ii) allows this flexibility. CMS is currently authorizing delay for the following FYE dates.
The filing deadline for the following cost reports are now June 30, 2020:
- FYE October 31, 2019 due by March 31, 2020
- FYE November 30, 2019 due by April 30, 2020
The filing deadline for FYE December 31, 2019 is now July 31, 2020.
