Health Care Cost Information System (HCCIS)

HCCIS collects data about the financial, utilization, and service characteristics of hospitals, freestanding outpatient surgical facilities, and diagnostic imaging facilities. The data are used to make policy decisions, implement the hospital medical care surcharge, and to help facilities compare their data to others.

Provider and Health Plan Data Reporting Requirements

  • Capital expenditure reports are submitted to MDH under Minnesota Statutes, section 62J.17, by all health care providers having a major capital spending commitment in excess of $1 million. Providers must report major capital spending commitments to the Minnesota Department of Health on an annual basis as part of existing annual financial and statistical reports.
  • Health Plan Financial and Statistical Reports are submitted by all health plan companies (group purchasers) licensed for health business in the state, by April 1 for each preceding calendar year.
Summaries of data from these reports are used in research and tracking of health care spending in Minnesota.
