2019 Statistical Report and LHCSA Registration – Due December 31
With just days remaining to submit the 2019 Statistical Report and LHCSA Registration and with the holiday season in full swing, HCP urges providers to work towards timely submission.
HCP strongly encourages providers to complete the report to the best of their abilities as soon as they can. Providers should keep in mind that the Statistical Report is the mechanism through which LHCSAs fulfill their annual registration requirements. Timely submission is very important for providers.
HCP has urged the Department of Health (DOH/the Department) to extend the time to complete the report. It is unclear whether such an extension will be approved in time for the looming deadline. DOH has been contacting providers directly urging them to submit the Statistical Report on time. This is an indication of the importance of timely submission of the Statistical Report, especially for registration purposes.
HCP strongly encourages members to contact HCP Public Policy Staff with questions or concerns with meeting Statistical Report Deadlines.
On November 1, DOH released the 2019 LHCSA (Licensed Home Care Services Agency) Statistical Report and the 2019 ALP (Assisted Living Program) LHCSA Statistical Report. It is now available on the Healthcare Financial Data Gateway on the Health Commerce System (HCS).
All LHCSAs are required to submit these reports. If your agency opened in 2020 – you need to complete and submit the Agency Form and the Registration Form.
As a reminder, failure to timely submit the statistical report and registration by December 31 will result in penalties including a fine of $500 per month, inability to operate until in compliance, and/or license revocation for excessive non-compliance.
