Each month, the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) requires nursing facilities who participate in the Medicaid program to report census on occupied Medicaid bed days, census of the licensed beds and children under the age 22. The monthly occupancy report rules can be found at 40 TAC Section 19.2322(l).
- Effective Aug. 1, 2015, facilities are required to submit an online Monthly Medicaid Occupancy Report, no later than the 5th day of the month (reporting on the previous month's census).
- HHSC collects the occupancy reports and compiles the data into five reports for the public each month. The various reports are linked below.
|Name of Report||Description|
|Facility Report||Lists facility identification numbers. Each facility's occupancy rate is calculated in whole numbers.|
|No Encumbered||Shows totals for all Medicaid beds and residents in each county.|
|With Encumbered||Shows totals for all Medicaid beds and residents in each county, plus beds that have been approved but not yet certified. Beds are approved to a provider and are on hold and awaiting new construction.|
