Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services released a comprehensive update to the long term care State Operations Manual which includes changes to significant investigative protocols:  long term care providers must know the content of the changes, as well as understand how their facility policies and practices may need to be modified to maintain compliance.  In addition, CMS also has announced that updates to the five star nursing home rating system will be made in 2015.  These changes will mean that quality measures and reporting of staffing, as well as other parts of the system will be different.  This program will focus on these changes and prepare long term care providers for how their data may change and how it will reflect their organization’s operation.

Coding, billing, compliance and a maze of changing Medicare rules and regulations – the only way to implement a successful plan to balance it all is to work strategically to stay ahead of the curve.  Coding and billing compliance is complicated and now more important than ever.  Not only have quality and reimbursement issues been added to the mix, but now we face new challenges with the implementation of the ICD-10-CM/PCS code sets on Oct. 1, 2015.

Each quarterly program will address new, timely and evolving issues with its own list of agenda topics that are hot-off-the-press.

The Omnibus Reconciliation Act of 1993 established the provisions for Qualified Income Trusts, otherwise known as Miller Trusts. This summer, New Jersey’s Department of Human Services, Division of Medical Assistance and Health Services, sought federal approval for individuals in need of long term care to use these trust devices in order to attain Medicaid eligibility for the following living arrangements: nursing facilities; assisted living; home and community-based services. Implementation of Miller Trusts is expected to begin Dec. 1, 2014.
