The Centers for Medicare and Medicare Services (CMS) posted its final rule in September entitled “Emergency Preparedness Requirements for Medicare and Medicaid Participating Providers and Suppliers”. The rule is set to go into effect on November 16, 2016, with health care providers and suppliers affected by this rule required to comply and implement all regulations one year after the effective date, on November 16, 2017, according to the CMS. This rule will affect 72,315 American health care providers and suppliers – from hospitals and nursing homes and other long-term care facilities to home healthcare and hospice to dialysis facilities and care homes for those with intellectual disabilities. The goal of the rule, according to the CMS, is to prevent severe breakdown in patient care that has followed past disasters, including Hurricane Katrina and Super Storm Sandy, and most recently the flooding in Louisiana. The rule is also designed to strengthen the ability to provide services during other types of emergencies, such as pandemics and terrorist attacks. The rule is unusual in that it has provisions for 17 different provider types, among them those that patients rely on to live at home, like outpatient surgery sites, physical therapy offices and home health care agencies. The rule “will make it more likely that facilities will be able to stay open and able to care for patients, and if they need to close or stop work temporarily, get back up and able to care for patients quickly,” said Dr. Nicole Lurie, the assistant secretary for preparedness and response at the Department of Health and Human Services. ”The need for patient care doesn’t stop because streets are flooded or trees are down. In fact disasters often increase the need for health care services.” Although the majority of organizations have had to adhere to at least some emergency preparedness requirements for accreditation, others were not subject to any, including hundreds of residential psychiatric facilities, nearly 200 community mental health centers, dozens of organ procurement organizations and nearly 4,000 outpatient hospices, which treat patients with limited life expectancies. “It’s going to have a big impact on these facilities,” said Emily Lord, the executive director of Healthcare Ready, a nonprofit focused on preparedness that provided feedback to the government on the implications of the rule,” in an article in the New York Times. Some feel the requirements under the new rule will be difficult for smaller facilities. Barbara B. Citarella, president of health care consulting group RBC Limited, was cited in the Times article as saying: ‘My concern is that compliance for some providers, especially home care and hospice, will be financially impossible.” The new as it relates to Medicare and Medicaid participating providers and suppliers specifically requires the following: 1. Emergency plan: Based on a risk assessment, develop an emergency plan using an all-hazards approach focusing on capacities and capabilities critical to preparedness for a full spectrum of emergencies or disasters specific to the location of a provider or supplier. 2. Policies and procedures: Develop and implement policies and procedures based on the plan and risk assessment. 3. Communication plan: Develop and maintain a communication plan that complies with both federal and state law. Patient care must be well coordinated within the facility, across health care providers, and with state and local public health departments and emergency systems. 4. Training and testing program: Develop and maintain training and testing programs, including initial and annual training, and conduct drills and exercises or participate in an actual incident that tests the plan. These standards, according to the CMS, are adjusted to reflect the characteristics of each type of provider and supplier. For example: outpatient providers and suppliers such as ambulatory surgical centers and end-stage renal disease facilities will not be required to have policies and procedures for provision of subsistence needs. Hospitals, critical access hospitals, and long-term care facilities will be required to install and maintain emergency and standby power systems based on their emergency plan. Caitlin Morgan specializes in insuring long-term care facilities, including nursing homes and assisted living facilities and home health care agencies. We can help you put together a robust insurance solution for these providers as well as assist in developing business continuity programs that include disaster planning. This is particularly critical in light of the new CMS rule that will affect Medicare and Medicaid participating providers.

https://www.carltonfields.com/a-conversation-on-cms-emergency-preparedness-compliance-for-healthcare-providers/ Hurricane Irma recently wreaked havoc on the Caribbean and much of the state of Florida. In the storm's aftermath, ten residents of a South Florida nursing facility died because the facility lost power, and did not have access to a backup generator. On September 8, 2016, CMS published the final rule enumerating the Emergency Preparedness Requirements for the Medicare and Medicaid Participating Providers and Suppliers. While emergency preparedness rules existed previously, CMS did not believe the went far enough in ensuring that providers were adequately prepared to protect beneficiaries in the case of a disaster. Specifically, CMS referenced several natural and manmade disasters including the September 11 terrorist attacks, anthrax attacks, the H1N1 influenza epidemic, Hurricane Sandy and Hurricane Katrina. We all can appreciate that there was much to be learned in terms of emergency preparedness from each of these events. CMS agreed and what resulted was the final rule. It should be noted that these requirement and either a Condition of Participation or Condition for Coverage for Medicare providers. Providers have had a year since publication of the rule to take steps towards compliance. The regulations under the final rule must be implemented by November 16, 2016, less than 60 days from now. There are 17 provider types which are affected by the final rule. The final rule is meant to address three essentials CMS believes are necessary for maintaining access to healthcare services during an emergency First, safeguarding human resources, next maintaining business continuity and finally protecting physical resources. In light of recent natural events in Florida and Texas and the looming deadline for compliance, we have asked James Randolph of the Tampa-based Pathfinder Group to be here with us to provide some helpful tips for providers with respect the CMS Emergency Preparedness Requirements. Thank you to our special guest: James M. Randolph email@example.com

The Home Health Final Rule updates Medicare PPS rates and wage index for calendar year 2018. Included in these updates is a 0.4 percent decrease (-$80 million) in HH payments for 2018. One of the most notable provisions of the rule is the introduction to an alternative payment methodology, the Home Health Groupings Model (HHGM) beginning in 2019. The HHGM would use 30-day periods, rather than 60-day episodes, and rely more heavily on clinical characteristics and other patient information to place patients into more meaningful payment categories. The proposed rule also includes proposals for the Home Health Value-Based Purchasing Model and the Home Health Quality Reporting Program. Join Jennifer Warfield as she discusses these and other provisions of the Rule.

A controversial Medicare requirement continues to cause unrest in the Home Care industry and has recently been the focus of a federal lawsuit. The Medicare “Face-to-Face” Home Health requirement is a hot topic of conversation within the industry, as it is a regulation that directly affects physicians and those in the medical field, home care and hospice agencies and those requesting home health Medicare benefits and reimbursement. What is the Medicare Face-to-Face Home Health Requirement? The Medicare Face-to-Face Home Health requirement, a regulation in accordance with the Affordable Care Act, requires an in-person physician’s visit in order to certify a patient’s home health benefit, according to cms.gov. This means that under the law, a physician must assess and document a patient’s condition and provide a brief narrative verifying their eligibility for the home health Medicare benefit. While revisions to this requirement were later made, some important initial provisions of this requirement are as follows: - A physician or allowed non-physician practitioner (NPP) must document having met with a patient face-to-face and certify them for Medicare home health benefits - The certification for service eligibility must be related to physician’s assessment of a patient’s clinical condition - Patients beginning care on or after January 1, 2011 require this documentation on their certification - Visit must occur within 90 days prior to, or within 30 days after beginning of home health care Who has been impacted by this requirement? Both physicians and home healthcare agencies have not been in agreement with the face-to-face requirement. “This new requirement caused widespread chaos, spurred a physician rebellion, and in the end deprived many seniors from receiving the care to which they were entitled under the Medicare home health benefit,” said the National Association for Home Care and Hospice (NAHC) in a January 2015 press release. In response to this public outrage, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) revised its requirement, removing the written narrative portion of the requirement. Unsatisfied with this requirement change, NAHC then filed a lawsuit in federal court seeking millions in denied claims dating from 2011 to 2014 under that provision of the requirement, according to its January press release. NAHC had previously requested CMS to pay “some $250 million owed to home health agencies for care they gave to Medicare patients between 2011-2014”. This request was denied, resulting in the lawsuit moving up to federal court. What Now? The federal lawsuit seeking compensation for denied claims has proceeded to the next stages, as a federal district court struck down the government’s requests to dismiss the case in January, according to the NAHC press release. This situation is fluid and worth monitoring, with the results of the federal lawsuit potentially making a further impact in the home care industry and spurring more conversation on the topic. Recently the federal court ruled in favor of Medicare while restricting the scope of the face to face narrative. At Manchester Specialty Programs, we understand how difficult it can be to navigate regulations while providing quality home care and hospice services. We deliver specialty insurance programs offering all the insurance coverage you need to operate in one easy to access program.

Kate Goodrich, MD, MHS, director, Quality Measurement and Health Assessment Group, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), speaks about CMS defining what its high-value principles entail throughout the agency for consistency. Examples include focusing on areas where there truly is a high variation of performance in care; incorporating the patient voice in quality measurement development; prioritizing patient-reported outcome measures; and, removing measures that no longer provide value to patients.

In the past we’ve talked to HEDIS nurse we’ve placed about this and they mentioned there are actually several HEDIS related reports that are used, depending on the type of population the health plan serves. There are variations in reporting if the population is all Commercial, such as HMOs, as well as for Medicaid vs Medicare populations. Depending on how the Managed Care Organization is structured, they may send a separate report for their Dual Eligible population that receive both Medicaid and Medicare benefits. In Today's Video, we’ll be talking about some of the relationship between HEDIS scores and financial reimbursement for health plans.

This is a recording of the January 19, 2017, webinar VNAA hosted to discuss their analysis of the Home Health Conditions of Participation Final Rule and their potential impact and implications for home health agencies. The final rule will be published in the Federal Register on January 13, 2017, and has stated that agencies will have until July 13, 2017, to comply with the new regulations. This rule is the first rule to modernize the home health regulations since 1989. A brief overview of changes from the Home Health Conditions of Participation (CoPs) Final Rule include: - A requirement for an integrated communication system that ensures patient needs are met, care is coordinated and that there is active communication between a home health agency and the patient’s physicians. - A requirement for data-driven, agency-wide quality assessment and performance improvement (QAPI) program that evaluates and improves agency care for patients at all times. - An expanded patient care coordination requirement that makes a licensed clinician responsible for all patient care services, such as coordinating referrals and assuring plans of care meet patients’ needs. Other CoPs that are included in the final rule related to ensuring documented communication, care coordination and a comprehensive patient assessment that ensures all aspects of patient well-being. The rule also requires clearly stated comprehensive patient rights and the steps to assure those rights.

The cost of medical care in the United States is expected to grow at a faster clip over the next decade and overall health spending growth will outpace that of the gross domestic product, a U.S. government health agency said on Wednesday. A report by the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) cited the aging of the enormous baby boom generation and overall economic inflation as prime contributors to the projected increase in healthcare spending. Overall healthcare spending will comprise 19.9 percent of the economy in 2025, up from 17.8 percent in 2015, the report forecast. The pace of growth in U.S. spending on health is expected to pick up in 2017, increasing 5.4 percent over 2016. That compares with an estimated 4.8 percent spending uptick in 2016. Spending for 2016 was estimated at $3.4 trillion. When the final numbers are in, the growth in prescription drug spending for 2016 is expected to have slowed to 5 percent from 9 percent in 2015. However, CMS has forecast growth of 6.4 percent per year between 2017 and 2025, in part because of spending on expensive newer specialty drugs, such as for cancer and multiple sclerosis. The projections for 2016 to 2025 were made assuming that the Affordable Care Act (ACA), former President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law widely known as Obamacare, would remain intact. It does not take into account likely changes to the law. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/domesticNews/~3/K_yLsXsA6uU/us-usa-healthcare-spending-idUSKBN15U2NE http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit Vote It using http://wochit.com

This event examined innovative efforts in both the private and public sectors to move toward a health system that is more patient-centered, cost-efficient and delivers better outcomes. It will address efforts underway at the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) and other federal agencies to spur innovation and prioritize a shift toward higher quality care, as well as the progress made by the private sector in improving quality and reducing costs through innovation. This discussion focused on how to leverage the strengths of both the public and private sectors to drive, measure, and spread innovation. It will address questions such as the role of government in encouraging innovation, how the public and private sectors work together to promote innovation, and the risks involved with testing and utilizing new models. Matthew Press, senior advisor, Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation, discussed federal efforts to test and measure innovative delivery models with the hopes of ultimately taking them to scale. He will speak about CMMI’s accomplishments in the past four years, its biggest challenges, its most promising innovations in the pipeline, and the recently announced CMS/HHS payment redesign initiatives. Wendy Everett, chief executive officer, The Network for Excellence in Health Innovation, described recent research focused on enabling innovation to improve health care quality and lower health care costs. She will detail the challenges of identifying and testing innovations, as well as the barriers to successful, widespread implementation. Daniel Riskin, chief executive officer, Vanguard Medical Technologies, spoke to recent innovations in the private sector and infrastructure changes that could further promote them. He will also address the strong momentum in the investment landscape towards encouraging consumer engagement, clinical analytics, and digital health care. Sarah Dash of the Alliance and Rachel Nuzum of Commonwealth co-moderated the panel discussion.

http://www.omahainsurancesolutions.com/ 402-614-3389 One of the most painful calls I get is from a client who is calling on behalf of a parent. They want to know if there is anything I can do for a parent who is paying huge monthly premiums for her Medicare supplement. The agent who signed them up is long gone. The supplement has increased over the years due to age and rate increases. Now the parent is in her 80's and in poor health, and the monthly premium is financially crushing. Many times there is nothing I can do because their mom or dad cannot pass the underwriting questions to change to a supplement that would be significantly less. They missed out on one of the keys to unlocking Medicare--an agent who shops her policy each year. There are five keys to unlocking Medicare. First you need to do some research yourself. The bible for Medicare is Medicare & You. It is the official Medicare Handbook that the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services publishes each year. The Medicare.gov website is an endless source of resources. It is important to do your own research so you are familiar with the proper Medicare terminology. That way, you can better understand a serious discuss around Medicare. Key number two: search for an experienced, independent agent. Experience means they have been doing this for years. Ask them when they got their insurance license. They should be able to spit that out without thinking. Ask if they do this full time. There are a lot of insurance companies and agencies who hire part-time people to increase their production. They give them little education or training. Even less support. Most drop out of the business after six or nine months. That probably is not the person you want. Ask if they are independent. Some insurance agents can only offer one company. They cannot shop the world of Medicare plans. Ask them to list the companies they offer. If they change the subject or only list one or two, you have your answer. Key number three: ask questions. As I tell my clients who are aging into Medicare, you turn 65 once in a lifetime. I help people turning 65 going on Medicare four or five times in a day. I am excited when someone asks me a question I haven't heard before. An experienced agent should be able to quickly and easily explain the details of Medicare, supplements, advantage plans, prescription drugs, etc. If not, you may wish to look somewhere else. Key number four: compare every year. I talk to my clients at least once a year. I want to know that everything is going well. Part of the conversation is the price of their supplement. With age and rate increases, what are you currently paying? I shop their supplement right then and there over the phone. I tell them if there is a plan of equal or better value at a lower price. That prevents you from getting into the situation in your later years of a plan with back breaking premiums. Key number five: stay healthy! Go to the gym. Eat healthy. Chase grandchildren, pets, moving cars, anything that will get your heart rate up. One of the keys to unlocking Medicare supplements is your ability to pass underwriting questions so you can change plans and pay less. I can try different companies that have more liberal underwriting guidelines, but ultimately there are limitations for serious health issues. Medicare and Medicare supplements are awesome health insurance, but to enjoy the greatest benefits from this awesome resource, you need to follow these simple five keys. Call me 402-614-3389 or the American Association of Medicare Supplements to find an experienced, independent agent near you. http://www.omahainsurancesolutions.com/ medicare nebraska
