Product Description

Agencies - are you prepared to handle the changes headed your way? They're more troublesome than you think.

There's growing recognition that patients prefer to be at home, not in institutions. This has led to a growth in alternatives such as home and community based waiver services. You may assume that this is all good news for the industry, but that may not be such a safe assumption.

Join health law and litigation expert Robert W. Markette, Jr. for this eye-opening 1-hour event that will clarify what's coming, and what you need to prepare for as the trend continues.

You'll learn about the pros and cons of the movement to home care and how it will affect your practice.

Session Highlights:

  • The background: Hear about studies on patient satisfaction at home, studies on the cost effectiveness of home care, and the recent advocacy to move away from the facility model outside of long term care.
  • Trends to watch: Learn about the growth in HCBS (home care based services) and how it could lead to self-directed care, leading to possible fraud, unionization, and so on
  • Lessons learned from other states. Find out about a case in NY involving "over approving" of Medicaid services. Can this harm patients when it leads to second guessing decisions?
  • Agency based service growth? Not if there's an increase in HCBS. Learn why…
  • CLASS Act - it allows for long term care insurance, but may end up financing more self-directed care.
  • PLUS: What can you do to be prepared? Learn about vigilance, advocacy and plans you need to put into action now, to get ready.
