Medicare and Medicaid Cost Report Software – Necessary Edits!
Edits are checks to verify that the data you entered into your Medicare cost report software is accurate. While there are a number of edits provided depending on the provider (first-level edits are mandatory), I would like to highlight some of the important Skilled Nursing Facility edits.
|1080: The total must equal the parts|
|1085: All standard cost center codes must be entered on the standard cost center lines/subscripts|
|1090: A numeric field should not exceed more than 11 positions|
In addition to these general edits, there are specific edits for specific worksheets. Each cost report software should include these features. For a walk-through of the edits that your Medicare cost report software uses, please let us know.
