Join our hosts Steve Givens, CPA of Ryun, Givens and Company, P.L.C. and Gary Jones, attorney with Midwest Compliance Associates in a round table discussion about what matters for nursing homes participating in Iowa’s Managed Medicaid.
Health care reform, including Iowa’s Managed Medicaid, is heavily principled on providing the best value in relation to the associated cost.
We will be discussing what information is now publicly available regarding the “value” nursing homes provide. The problem to date is that there is no one single indication of “value” that everyone agrees upon.
However, interesting things begin to surface when you line up several value indicators together. Similar to “the whole is greater than the sum or the parts,” Steve will present a never before examined framework that brings several key performance indicators together in one comparison to view the “value” organizations provide.
Each participant will receive a confidential report that has been specifically customized for their organization that brings their information together in comparison to other organizations in their county as well as surrounding counties.
We expect this information will generate quite a bit of discussion regarding how different participants view the relevance of the information and the degree to which it matters.
At a minimum, participants can expect to learn a lot more about the information that is publicly available regarding their organization and others in their surrounding market place.
During the second portion of our round table discussion, attorney Gary Jones will be discussing the key elements of an effective compliance program and how and why they matter under Managed Medicaid. Gary will also be discussing current governmental monitoring activities including the use of “data mining.”

Are you ready for changes to the Iowa Medicaid cost reports? The cost reports are set to change on July 1, 2015, and the changes are massive. There is a new certification statement with implications
for broad discretion in assessing criminal, civil or administrative penalties. Providers will need to have a very good understanding of the rules and regulations and have good systems and processes for
accounting for costs, accounting for employee compensation and related compensation costs, accounting for vendor costs, and improving documentation and record keeping to withstand scrutiny
at very high levels. One thing is certain, the new cost report will likely double the efforts of internal accountants and will dramatically increase the efforts of outside preparers. The better your
organization’s understanding of the rules and regulations AND the better an organization’s systems and processes, the less overall work for internal accountants and external cost report preparers.
This two-day, interactive seminar is designed to address all of these issues and provide the most up-to-date information needed to succeed with this change.
