Current Data Sources
All reports identify sources of data and time periods covered.
The following is additional information about various data sources:
- Medicare Cost Reports
- The Healthcare Cost Report Information System (HCRIS) dataset contains the most recent version (i.e. as submitted, settled, reopened) of each cost report filed with CMS (formerly HCFA) since federal FY 1996. The dataset consists of every data element included in the HCRIS extract created for CMS by a provider's fiscal intermediary. Cost reports are filed annually by facilities according to their individual reporting years. This dataset is updated quarterly by CMS. All Financial Information reports based on cost report data indicate a facility's fiscal year(s) in the column headers.
- Nursing Home Compare
Nursing Home Compare is a federal website that has detailed information about every Medicare and Medicaid-certified nursing home in the country.
