Medicaid Occupancy Reports

Each month, the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) 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).
  • DADS collects the occupancy reports and compiles the data into five reports for the public each month. The various reports are linked below.
