Deciding on Most Advantageous Cost Allocation Plans

In collecting data about your costs and calculating your PPS rate, your finance team needs to be prepared to identify how to allocate fixed costs like building rental, electronic health record purchase/maintenance, and much more. The implications of these decisions will affect your global rate, particularly for CCBHCs in states that are using the PPS-2 system. How can you structure your cost allocation plan so as accurately capture all eligible costs and make the most of your PPS rate? What different cost scenarios might you face, and how can you evaluate them in advance as you make decisions about your cost allocation plans? Learn more from our resources and consultants below.
