Presented on November 10, 2011
Most healthcare professionals are unaware of the changes CMS is making to Medicaid due to health care acquired conditions (HCACs). Many of the changes mimic Medicare HACs. You need to know what these changes are, how they affect your organization, their financial impact, and most importantly how they differ from Medicare.
During this 90-minute audio conference, our speakers review the Medicaid HCAC rules and reporting requirements, discuss their impact, and the steps you should take to implement successful processes.
This is an intermediate-level program. Listeners should have a general familiarity with Medicaid regulations, the healthcare reform act, HACs, and their organization’s operational processes.At the end of the program, you will be able to:
- State the current timelines for roll out of Medicaid HCACs
