One of the biggest problems that many long-term care facilities face from an administrative standpoint is Medicaid/Medicare reimbursement from the government. Although many facilities provide upmost care to their patients, unless the facility shows proper documentation from the MDS coordinator they will not be fully-reimbursed for their expenses. Not only can the facility be poorly reimbursed by the government if documentation isn’t provided, but they can also lose money. The only way to ensure proper reimbursement for your facility is to hire a MDS coordinator who has been expertly trained in the documentation methods now required by the government.
We were missing our reimbursement targets every month and it was costing our nursing care facility thousands of dollars…
Our mission as a company is to ensure that any nurse that takes one of our advanced MDS coordinator courses is properly trained and prepared to handle all the documentation requirements to maximize Medicaid/Medicare facility reimbursement. We are able to do this by staying up to date with new government regulations and ensuring that our training staff conveys the importance of detail when it comes to stringent documentation requirements. All of our course educators are highly experienced MDS coordinators and they have industry leading track records maximizing facility reimbursements.
We cannot stress the importance of documentation when it comes to reimbursement regulations. An untrained coordinator can cost long-term care facilities tens of thousands of dollars a year in reimbursements–a mistake that no facility can afford to make!
