42 CFR 417.572 - Budget and enrollment forecast and interim reports.
(a)Annual submittal. The HMO or CMP must submit an annual operating budget and enrollment forecast, in the form and detail required by CMS, at least 90 days before the beginning of each contract period. The forecast must be based on financial and statistical data and records that can be verified if CMS requires a detailed review of supporting records. The data and records include, but are not limited to, all ledgers, books, records, and original evidence of costs, and statistical data used in the determination of reasonable cost.
(1) Establish an interim per capita rate of payment on the basis of the best available data and adjust payments on the basis of that rate until the required reports are submitted and a new interim per capita rate can be established; or
(c)Interim cost reports.
(1) An HMO or CMP must submit interim cost reports on a quarterly basis in the form and detail prescribed by CMS. These interim cost reports must be submitted no later than 60 days after the close of each quarter of the contract period.
(2) CMS may reduce the frequency of the reports required under paragraph (c)(1) of this section if CMS determines that, on the basis of the HMO's or CMP's reporting experience, there is good cause to do so.
