July 10, 2018
2 – 3:30 pm

Summary:
Getting paid is more challenging than ever, requiring new and innovative ways to secure payment for the services we provide. An approach to consider, with proven results, is to become actively engaged in your residents’ Medicaid application and verification process. Learn and understand how to take an active role in the Medicaid process and how to avoid the bad debt associated with improper handling of the application and the verification process. Legal strategies on how to combat issues such as an uncooperative spouse, improper-transfer determinations, and unpaid monthly patient liability will be discussed and more.

Objectives:
* Learn and understand the “how to” in timely identifying Medicaid as an available payor.
* Learn and understand the Medicaid application process and how to overcome Medicaid processing delays.
* Identify available legal strategies to avoid Medicaid denials caused by a failure or inability to produce resource verifications and denials resulting from uncooperative families.
