Subject: Certified Public Expenditure (CPE) Cost Report Training

Consistent with the New York State (NYS) Compliance Agreement with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), NYS is providing continuing School Supportive Health Services Program (SSHSP) training for relevant employees. SSHSP WebEx fall training sessions have been scheduled during the months of November and December 2017.

These sessions will be limited to the annual SSHSP cost reporting and desk review aspects of the certified public expenditure (CPE) component of the SSHSP. Because the random moment time study (RMTS) has been suspended for the 2017-18 school year, there is no need for an RMTS training this fall. This CPE process overview will be presented by representatives from the Department of Health’s contractor, Public Consulting Group, Inc.

The following relevant employees are invited to attend one 90-minute training session: School district/county employees responsible for submission or development of cost reports; RMTS coordinators; and school district/county compliance officers (if applicable). Participation in a WebEx session is not mandatory, but is strongly encouraged for any staff new to the CPE process, or those with any cost reporting or RMTS questions. These Fall 2017 CPE trainings are being held as cost reporting is under way for the 2016-17 school year.

Registration is required. Participants may register at any time prior to the start of a session by clicking on the applicable Register Here link in the following NYSSHSP WebEx Training Schedule. When registering please enter your school district or county agency name in the box labeled “Company Name”. An email confirming the registration was successful will be sent.
