Cost Limit Protocol

Waiver Cost Limit Protocol (WCP)

The Massachusetts Executive Office of Health and Human Services (EOHHS) Office of Medicaid requires hospitals to submit cost, charge and patient day data via the Uniform Medicaid and Uninsured Uncompensated Care Cost & Charge Report (UCCR). 

This data is used to ensure compliance with Uncompensated Care Cost Limit Protocol approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on December 11, 2013. In addition, EOHHS uses the data to calculate the preliminary payment amounts for certain supplemental payments. The documents hosted here are for use in supporting that reporting effort.
