Redwood Times

The governing board of the Community Healthcare District met in special session on Wednesday, Feb. 1, to hear about the dreaded cost report from Medicare and Medicaid. All board members were present, along with Finance Department staff and Finance Committee members. The cost report is a unique feature of Medicare-Medicaid funding in which medical institutions such as the Jerold Phelps Community Hospital are reimbursed for services through a system that allows audits of those reimbursements after the fact to determine if they were consistent with costs.
