3.6 Cost Reporting, Cost Reconciliation, and Cost Settlement
CMS requires annual cost reporting, cost reconciliation, and cost settlement processes for all Medicaid SHARS services delivered by school districts. CMS requires that school districts, as public entities, not be paid in excess of their Medicaid-allowable costs and that any overpayments be recouped through the cost reconciliation and cost settlement processes. In an effort to minimize any potential recoupments, HHSC has assigned district-specific interim rates that are as close as possible to each district's Medicaid-allowable costs for providing each SHARS service.
