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
