Minnesota Therap News: CSSP Custom Form / ISP Agenda / Billing Claims Mandate for Waiver Services

CSSP Custom Form in Therap being updated.

Matt Wahl from PKT shared the updated regs regarding the inclusion of technology questions in the CSSP form.  ARRM has published an example of the prefered verbiage.  I have made the request to have the form updated for this purpose, with the ARRM sample copy.

Deb Koop from LSS shared the updated reg from 245D.07.Subd.4. “Service outcomes and supports”.  These points are earmarked for inclusion in the CSSP as well.  If anyone has a sample of the questions or verbiage the state is suggesting for “Service Outcomes and Supports”, please send them to me. 

Updates as available.

Request for the 245D “Progress Review Summary” form to be added.

Matt Wahl also asked if it would be possible to add the Progress Review Summary form to Therap.  I have advanced this to our development team for review.  If this request is granted, I will advise.

MN Specific ISP Agenda Questions.

At the August MN Regional Conference, during the ISP Plan / Agenda session we discussed the possibility of enhancing the menu of questions in the agenda for MN needs.  With the user community’s assistance, I have a proposal into our developers to add questions for…

  • Admission
  • 30-Day
  • 45-Day
  • Quarterly
  • Semi-Annual
  • Annual
  • Progress Review Summary
  • Other Meeting Type

…which also includes questions for the Final Rule Medicaid HCBS CMS 2249-F and CMS 2296-F.

Since this makes the menu quite long (62 options), I have also proposed the addition of a “guidance” section to help you make the proper selections per meeting type (e.g. Questions 11 through 25 are suggested by 245D for individual intake / admission / initial planning meetings).

We are keeping the developers busy!

Is your agency ready for the February 5th, 2018 billing change mandate?

On 2/5/18, the day-to-day billing submission mandate is effective for waiver services.  Batch claims without daily service line items will be denied by MN-ITs.   Per Barb Turner at ARRM, all other services have this requirement.  MN-ITs made the decision to bring waiver services into alignment earlier this year.

If you are using the Billing Plus moduleyou already know that Therap has been compliant with this upcoming mandate since the functionality was introduced in Minnesota.

If you still seek a solution, adding Billing Plus to your Therap system is very worthy of consideration.  Submit claims directly from your Therap service documentation or Attendance Data.  Therap & MN-ITs get along well!  

Contact me directly to schedule an informational webinar with Dawn Gilder, our Therap MN Billing Specialist.  Dawn can be reached at dawn.gilder@therapservices.net

And finally…

Our Data Driven Outcomes with Business Intelligence module answers the question of how to best Measure Your Organization’s Most Important Data.  Therap held a webinar for ANCOR in October on the topic.  It’s a great overview of DDO, click here to watch it.

Best,

Jeff

Therap in Canada

This week I have enjoyed visiting with organizations across the Province of Manitoba.   It has been a good week of discovering more information about the services and the structure of services in Canada and the challenges they face in service provision.  In addition, I have had the opportunity to attend the CCDDA conference here in Winnipeg and it has been a tremendous opportunity to meet with folks.  In addition to the conference, my time has been well spent as I have had the opportunity to sit down with lots of different folks across many varied organizations and agencies.  The license plates have the tag line “Friendly Manitoba”.  I would definitely have to agree as they people have been very friendly and welcoming to me.  It is obvious that so many would benefit from a solution like Therap in aiding with communication and organization of data and information.  I look forward to meeting with more folks today as the conference continues.

We were at the 25th DDNA Conference in Dallas!

Last weekend (Thursday through Sunday) I was fortunate enough to represent Therap at the 25th Annual Developmental Disabilities Nurses Association (DDNA) Educational Conference.  It was held at the downtown Hyatt in Dallas, Texas.  This event was attended by nurses from all over the USA.   I counted somewhere near 300 I/DD nurses!  Obviously, all specialized in supporting individuals in service.   Quite a fun group!

Knowing that Therap was their Signature Sponsor, at the Friday evening Gala Celebration held at Eddie Deen’s Downtown Ranch, I was not aware that a photo booth with a live Texas Longhorn was included!  If you wanted, you could get your picture taken on this majestic animal.  Anyone who had a picture taken, received their picture riding off into the Texas sunset.

At first I thought the steer was a model, as it stood so still.  But, nope.  He was LIVE.  I asked the handler about his “pet” and, indeed, this beautiful animal was a family pet.  He was raised by the family as a companion animal.  Very much like a working dog, he loves to be around people and loves his job in the spotlight.  So much so that there is no need for any unnatural means of keeping him calm.

He lives in an air conditioned barn.  He travels in an air conditioned trailer.  He has a bed…not a bunch of hay….a BED.  And, is fed a top quality diet.  As the owner / handler stated, “His current life sure beats the alternative.”

This photo-op was a show stopper!!

Best,

Jeff
