Clinics and Other Outpatient Facility Services Handbook : 7. Rural Health Clinic : 7.1 Enrollment : 7.1.1 Initial Cost Reporting

New RHCs must file a projected cost report within 90 days of their designation as an RHC to establish an initial payment rate. The cost report will contain the RHC’s reasonable costs anticipated to be incurred during the RHC’s initial fiscal year. The RHC must file a cost report within five months of the end of the RHC’s initial fiscal year. The cost settlement must be completed within 11 months of the receipt of a cost report. The cost per visit rate established by the cost settlement process shall be the base rate. Any subsequent increases shall be calculated as provided herein. A new RHC location established by an existing RHC participating in Texas Medicaid will receive the same effective rate as the RHC establishing the new location. An RHC establishing a new location may request an adjustment to its effective rate as provided herein if its costs have increased as a result of establishing a new location.
