|This is step 1 of 7 for configuring a report to indicate volume count as listed in MU: Introduction to Determining Medicaid Volume using the OP Software.|
The Medicaid patient volume methodology is set by your State Medical Technology Plan. The patient volume report period is dependent on your state:
- Any continuous 90-day period within the calendar year prior to the payment year.
|Example: If you are reporting for the 2018 MU year, you may select any consecutive 90 days in 2017.|
- Any continuous 90-day period for the 12-month period that immediately precedes the attestation submission date.
|Example: If you are reporting for the 2018 MU year and are submitting on 2/25/2019, you may select any consecutive 90 days between 2/24/2018 and 2/24/2019.|
When you choose the first day of the Medicaid volume attestation period, the OP software will automatically calculate a 90-day window with that start date within the SQL code.
|Note: This is different than your Meaningful Use attestation period, which is the main 90 or 365 day reporting period of MU.|
Be sure to record the following:
|My Medicaid volume attestation period dates:|
|My Meaningful Use attestation period dates:|
When you have determined your attestation period, move onto the next step listed in the introduction of this section.
