Customized PPS Financial Modeling
A special offering for VNAA Member Agencies to
Jump Start Your Preparation for PPS
On Tuesday, April 18th and
Wednesday, April 19, you can call toll-free to hear an"Encore presentation" of
our national informational teleconference.
At any time during these two days,
VNAA urges members to be proactive!
This time-sensitive program will
provide VNAs with the essential information now before the July regs to make adjustments
in order to succeed under PPS.
VNAA members are eligible for
significant discounts on PPS modeling reports prepared by American Express Tax &
Business Services which will analyze your data to help you prepare for PPS.
Bernie Lorenz and Pat Sevast of
American Express Tax & Business Services are national experts in home care consulting
and understand how the proposed PPS will financially impact home health care agencies.
These PPS financial modeling reports
will give VNAs the following essential details:
PPS Projected revenue by patient
(HHRG) and in total
PPS projected profit/loss per
patient by episode and in total (based on agency specific costs, OASIS and claims data)
A visit analysis showing the timing
of visits within an episode, mean number of visits per episode and percentage of LUPA
cases, to assist in projecting cash flow
Analysis of OASIS reports showing
patient values on 20 patient case mix items; average clinical, functional, and service
utilization domain scores; and average HHRG weight.
VNA participants in this program will
be eligible for additional discounts on consulting services!
We all know that October & the implementation of PPS is not that far away, therefore
VNAA has developed a very aggressive timeline.
VNAA wants its members to have their reports by June 9, 2000
In order to meet that deadline, the following needs to be accomplished:
1. Completed participation enrollment forms and payment for participation must
be received at VNAA no later than APRIL 26, 2000
2. Participating VNAs must
submit all data to Amex no later than MAY 19, 2000. Of course the sooner data is submitted
the quicker reports can be generated. AMEX has agreed to a 3 week turn around time upon
receipt of your agencys information.
3. AMEX agrees to deliver
all reports no later than June 9, 2000.
