Medicare Provider Cost Report Public Use Files

The Cost Report Public Use Files present select measures provided by Medicare providers through their annual cost report, and are organized at the provider level.  Most Medicare-certified providers are required to submit an annual cost report to CMS. The cost report contains provider information such as facility characteristics, utilization data, cost and charges by cost center (in total and for Medicare), Medicare settlement data, and financial statement data.  CMS maintains the cost report data in the Healthcare Provider Cost Reporting Information System (HCRIS). For more information about the HCRIS, and a complete list of variables included in the cost reports, please see https://www.cms.gov/Research-Statistics-Data-and-Systems/Downloadable-Public-Use-Files/Cost-Reports/.
