New Jersey Medicaid Data UpdateWednesday, March 14, 2012 17:08
For the fiscal year 2010 NJ changed their system from a standalone Medicaid cost report to a combination of the federal Medicare cost report and a supplemental Medicaid cost report.
We have handled this by extracting fields from our database of federal Medicare cost reports and combined this with the supplemental data provided by NJ Medicaid. We have tried to label the data provided by NJ Medicaid so that it is apparent. Because of this, we now have a field on one of the reports that specifies which FY period the facility’s Medicare report was from as well as which FY its Medicaid report is from. There might be cases where these are not the same because we are combining the data using our existing database. It is important to keep this in mind when browsing through the data.
