Obtaining payment for the important services provided to Indiana’s elderly and disabled is critical to the success of communities and the hands-on care provided each and every day. IHCA/INCAL has led the way in the development of Medicaid policy and advocacy, while AHCA/NCAL concentrates on policy and advocacy in the Medicare program, to help skilled nursing facilities and assisted living communities to receive compensation for their services.
The CMS Minimum Data Set (MDS) 3.0 Resident Assessment Instrument (RAI) Manual webpage was updated recently to include two important announcements:
Indiana’s Case Mix reimbursement system is complex and frequently changing. We track and provide guidance on a range of matters from Quality Assessment Fee to Payment Add-ons to Value based Purchasing to Cost Reports and Audits.
We also engage in policy development and expansion of Medicaid Long Term Services and Supports, Medicaid Waiver and Home and Community Based Services.
The intersection of quality and payment in the Medicare program continues to advance at a rapid pace. We help members learn and adapt to these changes. Data and guidance on the Patient Driven Payment Model, SNF VBP, Quality Reporting Program, are available for members to access.
