(Recorded Webinar) Change in Scope


Fifth in the Medicaid University series, this session will discuss the most important requirement for keeping your rate up-to-date. Under federal Medicaid law, a PPS rate (essential even if you operate under an APM) must be adjusted annually for two things: 1) inflation through the MEI and 2) for changes in your delivery of health care services, generally referred to as “changes in scope.” These changes are not to be confused with changes in the scope of your Section 330 grant. They are changes in the “type, intensity, duration and/or amount” of Medicaid-covered services provided by your Health Center. We will discuss why pursuing these changes are crucial to your Health Center’s long-term financial health and thoughts about how to navigate an often vague or cumbersome process.

This series of seven webinars will focus on the fundamentals of the Medicaid FQHC payment, covering current law and policy and how it is being applied in the states. Each webinar will address a specific topic, focusing on the policy and legal landscape, and attendees will hear from health center and PCA leaders on their successes and challenges in their states, providing insights to help strengthen your state-based strategies.

Certificates of Attendance: We verify attendance upon completion of a webinar (live or recorded version) and will only issue certificates in the name of the account holder enrolled in the course. If you need to document attendance for someone other than the account holder, we provide blank Certificates of Attendance for a supervisor to sign and certify that a different individual viewed the course. 

Group Attendance: Due to the online nature of webinars, we cannot verify participation by more than one person. For groups, we provide an attendance record form and blank Certificates of Attendance to record attendance at a group viewing session and document each individual's participation. We recommend that a supervisor or colleague sign the certificate to certify attendance.
