The NAHC COST REPORT DATA COMPENDIUM is an in-depth analysis of Medicare cost reports filed by home health agencies since the beginning of the HH PPS payment system in October 2000. NAHC has acquired over 20,000 filed cost reports to develop this Compendium.
Cost reports contain a wealth of data. For purposes of this compendium, NAHC used data on per unit costs, supply costs, service utilization, and Medicare PPS episodes. In addition, overall HHA cost and revenue data is used to calculate overall financial margins. The geographic location of the HHA and its categorizations also is utilized.
The Compendium is a valuable tool for providers of services, consultants, health policy planners, home care advocates, investors, and trade associations looking to gain an understanding of the financial status of home health agencies.
