June 15, 2020 Cost Report extension reinstated

Stasia ViatorIndustry News

Though there was high degree of confusion regarding the issued, retracted, then reissued statement from HHSC on May 4, 2020 regarding the 2019 FFY Cost Report, HHSC did release a final statement through the Fairbanks system informing school districts they are recognizing June 15, 2020 as the new deadline date for the SHARS Cost Report.  This new deadline date supersedes the original notification and any reminder emails that providers may have already received.

Please know that you will continue to receive system generated due date reminders from Fairbanks for all reports not already certified.  HHSC officially released that they do not expect to grant any additional extensions beyond June 15, 2020.
