    RCPA is offering this exciting opportunity, exclusively for its members!

    Tuesday, September 11, 2018 – 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm

    In this 60-minute educational members-only webinar, hosted by RCPA and led by Wojdak Government Relations, you will learn about the statewide Quality Care Assessment (QCA), a program that annually provides more than $1 billion in Medicaid payments to hospitals and freestanding medical rehabilitation hospitals. This webinar will provide members with a comprehensive understanding of:

    • The background of the assessment and its initial design;
    • The benefits and challenges of the assessment to the industry and to classes of providers;
    • The details of the recent five year reauthorization;
    • The current politics and state agency dynamics around the assessment;
    • The current federal climate related to provider assessments; and
    • The future opportunities for freestanding medical rehabilitation hospitals.

    Following this webinar, there will be a Q&A session to further discuss the presentation and share ideas related to Medicaid payments and policy. Members may also submit questions ahead of the webinar. Please register here.

    Contact Melissa Dehoff, RCPA Director of Rehabilitation Services, with any questions.

    RCPA is hosting a free educational webinar on the Federal ORP (order, refer, or prescribe) Requirements on Wednesday, August 16, 2017, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm. The webinar will be presented by David C. McAdoo, MBA, Executive Director, Southwest Behavioral Health Management, Inc. and Jamie Buchenauer, Director, Bureau of Fee for Services. Registration is required. Please register here to participate.

    The Affordable Care Act requires all physicians including psychiatrists, physician assistants, and certified registered nurse practitioners to directly enroll in PA State Medicaid (PROMISe) to order, refer, or prescribe medications, testing, services, or other items billed to Medicaid. Any MD acting as the Medical Director in a licensed substance abuse or mental health facility must meet this requirement for the facility to bill Medicaid. Specifically, each psychologist, MD, CRNP, or PA touching the PA State Medicaid program must have at least one PROMISE ID under the NPI number on their license.

    This webinar will address the requirement, the specific services that are covered, documentation that must be collected, the modifications needed in claims to bill Medicaid moving forward, and strategies for maintaining patient safety and uninterrupted access to medication and services during the transition to full compliance with this new requirement.
