A hospital that has a fiscal year different from the calendar year shall file its financial statement within one hundred eighty days of the end of its fiscal year or at a later date approved by the director of job and family services. The financial statement shall be prepared by an independent certified public accountant and reflect an official audit report prepared in a manner consistent with generally accepted accounting principles. The financial statement shall, to the extent that the hospital has sufficient financial records, show bad debt and charity care separately from courtesy care and contractual allowances.
(B) Except as provided in division (C) of this section, each hospital, within one hundred eighty days after the end of the hospital's cost reporting period, shall submit to the department a cost report in a format prescribed in rules adopted by the director of job and family services under section 5112.03 of the Revised Code. The department shall grant a hospital an extension of the one hundred eighty day period if the health care financing administration of the United States department of health and human services extends the date by which the hospital must submit its cost report for the hospital's cost reporting period.
(C) The director of job and family services may adopt rules under section 5112.03 of the Revised Code specifying financial information that must be submitted by hospitals for which no financial statement or cost report is available. The rules shall specify deadlines for submitting the information. Each such hospital shall submit the information specified in the rules not later than the deadline specified in the rules.
