      NEMEP Session # 6
      MANAGED CARE CONTRACTING
        Jeff Baird, JD, Brown & Fortunato

    • "Managed Care Contracting Made Simple ”


    • In the past, DME Supplier’s payor mix consisted entirely of Medicare & Medicaid (“FFS”).  However, this is no longer the case.  The market is more competitive & industry initiatives have forced suppliers to expand

      payor mix.  This program will discuss the challenges facing suppliers as they enter MC arena, including (i) the refusal of an MC Plan to allow new suppliers on their panels; (ii) coverage & reimbursement policies

      that are different than FFS programs; (iii) the prohibition against selling cash items to “covered lives” under the Plan; (iv) a “take it or leave it” attitude by the Plan; and (v) Plans entering into “sole source” and

       “preferred supplier” arrangements.  Equally as important, the program will discuss the steps that suppliers can take to overcome these challenges

      ENGAGEMENT
        Louis Feuer, MSW, Dynamic Seminars

    • "Engaging Your Most Valuable Connections - Patients, Families, Staff & Referral Sources  ”

    • Engagement is about connecting with patients, employees and referrals sources. As the content for this program originated as an outgrowth of a series of interviews with healthcare executives from insurance providers and pharmacy chains and plans, - Covaid-19 has increased the importance of engagement with various business entities. Engagement with your off-site staff, patients and their families and those now hard to reach referral source requires a whole new set of business strategies.  Objectives: This dynamic program will identify new connection challenges, suggest new roles for technology, evaluate the impact of cultural diversity on the engagement process, evaluate the impact upon compliance and understand how engagement with patients and staff can both positively increase revenues. Out of sight and out of mind could be one of the most serious impacts of Covaid-19 on your home care business. Learn the strategies and programs that can help regain these lost business relationships.
