Audio Conference - Managing the Double Standard

CMP Scott Jackson in Education

Join us on May 7, 2013 for "Managing the "Double Standard": Reconciling Federal v. State Audit Initiatives" from 10:00 am - 12:00 pm audio conference presented by Marc Zimmet & Barbara Griffin-Gulliver, Zimmet Healthcare Services Group, LLC, Morganville, NJ.

SNFs are being forced to manage a host of audit initiatives from Medicare and Medicaid. While both the Federal PPS and State CMI systems use the MDS to adjust “acuity-based” payment, there are many inconsistencies regarding expectations, standards and outcomes among the government and their third party auditors (e.g., MACs, OMIG, ZIPCs, etc.). This program will review recent audit activity and offer strategies to successfully manage the different requirements to ensure that your documentation and response process is efficient, compliant and effective.
The presenters will focus on the ongoing OMIG audits of facilities that realized a 5% increase in CMI from January 2011 – January 2012, including processes and early findings.

2.0 CEUs are available for LNHAs & CPAs.
