CMS Required Training Coming for Additional Provider Relief Funds

The White House announcement last week referred to a COVID-19 training that nursing homes must participate in to qualify and receive additional funding from the Provider Relief Fund. From CMS’ press release:

“In addition, CMS, in partnership with the CDC, is rolling out an online, self-paced, on-demand Nursing Home COVID-19 Training focused on infection control and best practices. The training being offered has 23 educational modules and a scenario-based learning modules that include materials on cohorting strategies and using telehealth in nursing homes to assist facilities as they continue to work to mitigate the virus spread in their facilities. This program supplements training already underway to better equip nursing homes to contain and stop the spread of COVID-19. The training is a requirement for nursing homes to receive the additional funding from the Provider Relief Fund Program. 

“The training will be available to all 15,400 nursing homes nationwide along with specialized technical assistance to nursing homes who have been found to have infection prevention deficiencies in their most recent CMS inspection and had recent COVID-19 cases based upon their data submissions to CDC. A certificate of completion is offered and recognition badges can be downloaded for nursing homes to display on their website.” 

AHCA has confirmed with CMS that this is a new training that has not been launched yet. CMS states it will be COVID-19 scenario-based and is anticipated to be launched before September. AHCA will share more information when it becomes available.

Point-of-Care Antigen Tests: What SNFs Need to Know

On July 14, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) announced an initiative to distribute of point-of-care (POC) antigen COVID-19 testing devices to nursing homes across the country. 

Nursing facilities will receive one of two testing devices: 
  • Quidel Sofia 2 SARS Antigen FIA 
  • BD Veritor System for Rapid Detection of SARS-CoV-2 
AHCA/NCAL has put together a summary of important steps providers must take in preparing to use these testing devices. 

These test devices are being shipped based on prioritization of hot spot areas, cases of COVID-19 among staff and residents and lack of access to testing. Providers must have a Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendment (CLIA) Certificate of Waiver to receive a testing device. More information and a list of nursing homes prioritized to receive the instrument first is available here. CMS has also published list of FAQ’s that providers are encouraged to review. 

For more information, please visit www.ahcancal.org/coronavirus, or email COVID19@ahca.org

Give Your Staff the Real-World Tools They Need to Improve Functional Outcomes


AHCA/NCAL’s online training titled Functional Outcomes Improvement is designed for all staff who have a role in improving patient functional outcomes quality and services, including nurses, CNAs, therapists, activities staff and recreational therapists.  

This course advances knowledge and skills about functional improvement through an array of learning tools and resources designed to meet the educational needs of various staff and departments. This includes learning about daily care best practices and real-world tools that improve functional outcomes.  

The Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC), the IMPACT Act, and CMS called for the development of functional improvement measures based on the self-care and mobility sections of the Continuity Assessment Record and Evaluation (CARE) tool.  

The program is flexible and can be completed in one sitting or one module at a time. The training is delivered in five modules, including:
  • Module 1 – Explores the connection between functional outcomes and person-centered care, and how utilization of evidence-based pragmatic programs leads toward continuous improvement.
  • Module 2 – Reviews the regulations related to functional outcomes including the CMS Requirements of Participation and how functional improvement impacts reimbursement.
  • Module 3 – Covers best care coordination practices for short- and long-stay patients, including coordinating with therapy processes, and provides an overview of effective restorative nursing programs.
  • Module 4 – Closely examines care practice application and what individuals can do to increase function, team engagement and concludes with a discussion of various quality initiatives that lead to better outcomes.
  • Module 5 – Reviews the tools and resources needed to further functional outcomes improvement approaches to person-centered care.  
The cost for the training program is $199 for AHCA/NCAL members and $650 for non-members and offers 6.5 NAB CE credits for administrators and 6.5 contact hours for nurses through the Iowa Board of Nursing. There is a quiz at the end of four of the five modules and participants must pass a final exam with a score of 80 or higher to receive credit. Click here to register or go to ahcancal.org/functionaloutcomes.

CMS SNF PDPM Interrupted Stay Claim Issue Workaround Announcement


Last week the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that a new issue is affecting some inpatient hospital and Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) claims when an interrupted stay is billed at the end of the month. The system incorrectly assigns edits U5601-U5608 (overlapping a hospital claim). CMS notes that if a SNF billed the interrupted stay correctly, and the claim is rejected, the SNF can work-around the edit by modifying the billing so the claim spans past the last day of the interrupted stay. This can be accomplished in two ways:
  • Bill two months at a time, or
  • Bill a month plus the days in the following month that span the interrupted stay plus 1 day
Adjusting the statement covered from and through dates to encompass the entire interrupted stay will allow the claim to process and pay correctly. Medicare Administrative Contractors will finalize any suspended claims that meet the criteria, so providers can make corrections and resubmit the claim.

SNF providers may hear from the hospital where the beneficiary went during the interrupted stay because this issue also is causing problems with their claims. If the MAC rejected an inpatient hospital claim, CMS is directing the hospital to ask the SNF to modify their claim. Please note, until October 5, a SNF cannot submit an adjustment to a paid claim; they must cancel the paid claim and all subsequent claims in the same stay and resubmit them in sequential order. CMS indicated that they will correct the system error in the future.

Public Health Emergency Extended

This evening, HHS formally extended the COVID-19 pandemic Public Health Emergency for another 90 days. The extension ensures that the COVID-19 related regulatory and reimbursement blanket waivers are extended.  This includes waivers of staff training requirements, the 3-day stay and spell of illness. 

CMS Releases List of Nursing Homes Prioritized for POC Testing Instrument

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recently announced that it will begin providing nursing homes with a Point of Care (POC) rapid response testing instrument to bolster each facility’s ability to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The data collected through the NHSN system directly supports this initiative by helping to prioritize those nursing homes with testing needs and an increasing number of cases. CMS has also provided information about their methodology for prioritizing facilities and a listing of the facilities, as well as a list of frequently asked questions.

HHS FAQ Updates on Auditing and Funds Transfers

Today, the Department of Human Health Services (HHS) added FAQs further defining which funds may be moved among TINs and lines of care as well as providing preliminary information on Provider Relief Fund audits. Important FAQs are shown below.  


Provider Re-Allocation of Funds.  In these two FAQs, HHS indicates that funds from a General Distribution (e.g., Tranches 1 and 2) may be transferred from a parent organization. This FAQ builds upon prior guidance allowing for transfers. However, in the second FAQ, HHS clarifies that Targeted Distributions, such as the SNF Distribution, may not be transferred.   

Can a parent organization allocate Provider Relief Fund General Distribution to subsidiaries that do not report income under their parent’s employee identification number (EIN)? (Added 7/22/2020) 

Yes. The Terms and Conditions place restrictions on how the funds can be used. In particular, the parent organization will be required to substantiate that these funds were used for increased healthcare-related expenses or lost revenue attributable to COVID-19, and that those expenses or losses were not reimbursed from other sources and other sources were not obligated to reimburse them. 

Can a parent organization with a direct ownership relationship with a subsidiary that received a Provider Relief Fund Targeted Distribution payment control and allocate that Targeted Distribution payment among other subsidiaries that were not themselves eligible and did not receive a Targeted Distribution (i.e., Skilled Nursing Facility, Safety Net Hospital, Rural, Tribal, High Impact Area) payment? (Added 7/22/2020) 

No. The parent entity may not transfer a Provider Relief Fund Targeted Distribution payment from the recipient subsidiary to a subsidiary that did not receive the payment. Control and use of the funds must remain with the entity that received the Targeted Distribution payment. The purpose of Targeted Distribution payments is to support the specific financial needs of the payment recipient. 


Auditing.  In addition to the preliminary information on reporting released earlier this week, today, HHS indicates that Provider Relief Fund payments will be subject to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Single Audit process. Single Audit, Subpart F of the OMB Uniform Guidance, is a rigorous, organization-wide audit or examination of an entity that expends $750,000 or more of federal assistance. The Single Audit's objective is to provide assurance that federal funds are used appropriately.   

The Single Audit concept likely is unfamiliar to many AHCA/NCAL members. AHCA/NCAL is developing educational materials and resources to support the membership.   
 
Are Provider Relief Fund payments subject to Single Audit requirements under the UNIFORM ADMINISTRATIVE REQUIREMENTS, COST PRINCIPLES, AND AUDIT REQUIREMENTS FOR HHS AWARDS (45 CFR Part 75)? (Added 7/22/2020) 

Yes. Provider Relief Fund General and Targeted Distribution payments and Uninsured Testing and Treatment reimbursement payments are required to be included in determining if a recipient organization, other than commercial (for profit) organizations, is required to have an audit in accordance with 45 CFR Part 75, Subpart F (i.e., reported annual total federal fund expenditures equal to or above $750,000). Audit reports must be submitted to the Federal Audit Clearinghouse electronically at https://harvester.census.gov/facides/Account/Login.aspx

Are commercial organizations that receive Provider Relief Fund payments required to have a Single Audit in conformance with the requirements under 45 CFR 75 Subpart F? (Added 7/22/2020) 

Commercial organizations that receive $750,000 or more in annual federal awards have two options:  
  1. A financial audit conducted in accordance with Generally Accepted Government Auditing Standards (45 CFR 75.216); or  
  2. A Single Audit in conformance with the requirements under 45 CFR 75 Subpart F.  
Provider Relief Fund payments must be included in determining if a recipient that is a commercial (for profit) organization is required to have an audit in accordance with 45 CFR §75.501 (i.e., reported annual total federal funds received equal to or above $750,000). Audit reports of commercial entities are to be submitted directly to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Audit Resolution Division at AuditResolution@hhs.gov

Can my organization get an extension to the submission deadline for our upcoming Single Audit? (Added 7/22/2020) 

Yes. OMB has provided certain flexibilities due to the COVID-19 pandemic, including the extension of time to submit audit reports. Please see the OMB website for more details. Organizations with questions about their ability to obtain extensions should email HRSA’s Division of Financial Integrity at SARFollowup@hrsa.gov

Preliminary Provider Relief Fund Reporting Guidance Released

On July 21, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released a framework for more detailed Provider Relief Fund (PRF) reporting guidance and materials to be released on August 17, 2020. In the short, two-page document, HHS reiterates the reporting requirements included in the Terms and Conditions (T&Cs) providers had to attest to as part of the funding award process. 

These reporting instructions will provide directions on reporting obligations applicable to any provider that received a payment from the following PRF distributions. The reports will allow providers to demonstrate compliance with the T&Cs, including use of funds for allowable purposes, for each PRF payment. HRSA plans to provide recipients with Question and Answer (Q&A) Sessions via Webinar in advance of the submission deadline. Additional details will follow regarding the Q&A Sessions. 

HHS also provides dates for reporting. The reporting system will become available to recipients on October 1, 2020. All recipients must report within 45 days of the end of calendar year 2020 on their expenditures through the period ending December 31, 2020. However, recipients who have expended funds in full prior to December 31, 2020 may submit a single final report at any time during the window that begins October 1, 2020, but no later than February 15, 2021. Recipients with funds unexpended after December 31, 2020 must submit a second and final report no later than July 31, 2021.

Four Strategies to Help Long Term Care Providers Navigate the Impacts of COVID-19 on Healthcare Costs


The COVID-19 pandemic has created both a health and economic crisis, and it comes as no surprise that healthcare costs—which are inextricably linked to public health and the economy—are expected to rise over the next year. Considering that healthcare is already one of the largest expenses for businesses, this is not positive news for employers who are facing financial pressure.

The direct and indirect costs related to COVID-19 in the healthcare world will show themselves in the form of increased premium rates over the next few years. A study from Covered California estimated that premiums could increase between 4% and 40% nationally in 2021.

A lot is driving these projections. For one, the costs related to testing and treating COVID-19 are high—this year, they are estimated to be between $34- $251 billion. Factor in the possibility that there may be a resurgence in cases, and these costs are not likely to let up in the following year. At the same time, healthcare costs for non-COVID related services have likely dropped due to efforts to reduce elective procedures during the pandemic. Despite this, it is the cost of the uncertainty of healthcare demands in the near future that will be bringing an even greater financial burden to employers.

Being able to provide good and affordable healthcare plans for employees is most certainly a recruitment and retention strategy. This is a time of many unknowns in the long-term care industry, and employees want to feel supported by their plans. But this can be hard to achieve when these facilities are also financially strapped. What should employers be doing to balance their needs with their employee’s needs?

Employers should act now to create a more resilient health benefits strategy within their businesses in order to provide solid healthcare options to employees. This means avoiding making decisions that only benefit the short term—things like raising out of pocket costs for employees, such as copayments or deductibles, or dropping coverage altogether. Here are some longer-term strategies to help employers navigate the healthcare terrain as we move out of a pandemic:

  1. Education is key
    Businesses need to pay more detailed attention to their health plan spending and manage healthcare benefits with the same level of care and scrutiny as they would to other expenses within their business. Spend some analytical energy understanding why costs have been exceeding the benchmark.

    Educating employees about their healthcare options will also lead to cost savings in the long run. Providing care navigation services that help them understand what kind of healthcare and treatment options they should receive will allow them to seek care at a fair price and reduce unnecessary appointments or procedures.

  2. Preventative care
    Employees of long-term care facilities are doing their best to provide preventative care to their patients amidst a pandemic. Promoting preventative care for the health and wellbeing of the employees themselves is a way to show that they are valued and supported by their healthcare plan and by their employer.

    A business that pushes preventative care both within the workplace and through preventative services offered in a healthcare plan will not only recruit and retain new employees but will save in the long run.

  3. Promote technology
    Offering telehealth options to employees will not only boost revenue but reduce healthcare costs for the employee. As we face an uncertain future, the promise of health care in virtual form will ensure that employees are still receiving the care they need.

  4. Consider new healthcare plans
    There is no better time to rethink and redesign your health benefit options to employees. Given that COVID-19 has hit long-term care facilities the hardest, it is important that health benefits be used as a tool to retain and recruit employees.

What if there was a plan that was designed with both employees and employers of long-term care facilities in mind? Compass Total Benefit Solutions has created a new minimum essential coverage (MEC) plan for both part-time and full- time workers.

This plan is as low as $161 a month, with copays for regular visits for only $20, and free Teladoc Health telemedicine services—making it very desirable for employees that are looking for basic coverage and a low deductible. Better yet, this plan only adds $1 per hour to the total compensation of each employee.

Read more about the Compass Plan by going to the Member Benefits section of the AHCA portal: www.AHCABenefits.org. Reach out to Nick Cianci, president of Compass Total Benefit Solutions, at Nick@compasstbs.com for help with the enrollment process.

A Better Way for PT/OT Professionals to Address Functional Decline in SNF Patients


In collaboration with the University of Colorado (CU), AHCA/NCAL offers a new online educational program titled High Intensity Physical Rehabilitation in Medically Complex Populations. This program is offered through ahcancalED and is designed for physical therapy and occupational therapy rehabilitation professionals (PT, PTA, OT, OTA).   

The course presents an evidence-based approach for the implementation of a high intensity progressive rehabilitation model as part of an evolution from current lower intensity post-acute treatment approaches to address myriad patient needs. Rehabilitation professionals will have access to an interactive multimedia learning experience including responsive, self-paced presentation of foundational concepts, simulated case scenarios, and a moderated discussion environment for learning with fellow clinicians - all informed by the latest learning science and innovative technology.  

The goal of the course is to teach rehabilitation professionals better methods of addressing functional decline due to underlying medical complexity and deconditioning from hospitalizations or illness. By the end of this course, rehab professionals will learn how to:
  1. Screen all patients for safe participation in high intensity rehabilitation
  2. Establish an appropriate high intensity plan of care for eligible patients
  3. Execute effective and engaging rehabilitation sessions informed by high intensity rehabilitation strategies
  4. Perform ongoing monitoring of patient response to activity and adapt high intensity plans of care throughout the length of stay
  5. Communicate and document completely and efficiently to facilitate continuity of care
  6. Identify current gaps in care for older adults that high intensity rehabilitation can address and advocate for its use in the skilled nursing setting
This self-paced course contains nine learning modules. Each module has an interactive lesson. Some modules have quizzes, some have Slack channel discussions, and some have case simulations to test the mastery of the subject matter. The course concludes with the Post-Assessment/Final Exam and survey. All modules must be completed to take the Post-Assessment/Final Exam. 

CU recommends that the course be taken over an eight-week period to allow rehab professionals time to implement and practice the concepts as they are learned. Documentation will be provided by AHCA/NCAL to rehab professionals who successfully complete the course, so that they can apply to their respective state licensing boards for continuing education credits.  

The course fee is $495 for an employee or contracted employee registering as affiliated with an AHCA member facility and $595 for all other non-member registrants. Individuals will register and pay for the course through the ahcancalED platform at this web site: ahcancal.org/restoreregistration. Then, within 48 hours, registrants will receive further instructions on how to go to the CU platform and enroll in the course and begin their coursework. 
 
Individuals will need to login with their AHCA/NCAL usernames and passwords to register for this course. For assistance obtaining AHCA/NCAL usernames and passwords, individuals should e-mail educate@ahca.org with their name and facility contact information. Questions about the program should also be directed to educate@ahca.org.
