Webinar: Rhode Island Payment System Q&A Session

June 11, 2013

Rhode Island Payment System

After the initial test of the progress of the implementation of the Price-Based System, the Office of Health and Human Services (OHHS) has agreed to postpone the implementation date to June 1, 2013.

Many of you have been diligently working to implement the 48 RUG grouper into your MDS system to gauge the impact of the new changes. Three providers out of the current 84 were selected as a “test” to determine whether the new system will process claims and pay providers the correct amount on a monthly basis. The results of this test led to more questions than answers.

To help your organization alleviate any confusion, BlumShapiro, in conjunction with HP,  hosted an interactive Q&A webinar to address concerns around the processing of claims. We have recorded the Q&A session and it is available for viewing below:
