    Hello! Someone asked about filing their Medicare Cost Report electronically, and wanted to share with everyone the process and resource from Community Link Consulting.

    If you have access to PS&R reports, you should be able to submit electronically.<o:p></o:p>

    You login to the same system and look for the cost report filing area.<o:p></o:p>

    <o:p> </o:p>

    Attached is the user manual for the MCReF system.<o:p></o:p>

    Cost report filing instructions start on pg 62.<o:p></o:p>

    <o:p> </o:p>

    One thing it doesn't mention is how to classify your data when attaching – TB, Crosswalk, Vaccination Log, etc.<o:p></o:p>

    Add them where it makes sense – there aren't specific requirements except for the actual encrypted cost report documents.<o:p></o:p>

    After you attach the documents, you'll get an "error" message that says, "you should have documents in these areas".<o:p></o:p>

    You can just say OK, and it will take you to the final submittal page.

    Please let me know if you have any additional questions, or would like me to invite them to FDR on Friday.

    Thank you!<o:p></o:p>
