COVID-19 Hospital Data Coverage Report – Updated Weekly

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is providing weekly updates to the data set tracking whether hospitals, including rural and Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs), are completing their COVID-19 data reporting.   As specified in recent guidance, hospitals and CAHs must report daily to the federal government, or to their state if they receive a written release from the state, a set of required data elements.  Failure to do so will result in a series of enforcement actions over several weeks that could result in termination of the Medicare provider agreement.
