Publicly Available Cost Reports

Wisconsin Department of Health Services makes provider submitted cost reports publicly available.

Family Care MCO Rates by RUG/PDPM Category

The Family Care MCO rates by RUG category spreadsheets display nursing facility daily rates by RUG-IV (48 cell) category for use by Family Care MCOs. The spreadsheets provide rates by state fiscal year, going back seven years. Each file displays the final July 1 Medicaid fee-for-service (FFS) non-DD rate based on the average FFS Medicaid case mix index (CMI) for each facility. Please note that the FFS rates are updated quarterly based on changes in the average CMI values for each facility, these quarterly updates are not included in the Family Care MCO spreadsheet as they only apply to FFS residents. Effective January 1, 2022, the spreadsheets will provide rates for each PDPM Nursing and NTA category.

The current state fiscal year spreadsheet is updated monthly, around the 1st of each month, until FFS rate setting is complete for that rate year.  If you have questions regarding the spreadsheet or rates, please contact your nursing home’s assigned auditor.  Contact information for the WI Department of Health Services’ Nursing Home Policy and Rate Setting Section is available here.
