In this episode we continue our discussion pertaining to Section 7 of the CMS Cost Data Reporting Instrument with a discussion about Section 7.1 and the reporting of costs associated with Paid Staff within your organization.  It’s a dollars and cents discussion of hourly wages, salaries and benefits, including the number of hours worked by individuals for the annual reporting period and with a few cautions to add along the way.  We go deeper into the Section 7 jungle and we’re glad that you’re joining on this Cost Data Collection safari!
