Many hospitals are likely in the throes of preparing to implement the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Discharge Planning Conditions of Participation Final Rule, including how to reconcile the Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation (IMPACT) Act of 2014. The new rule becomes effective Friday, Nov. 29, 2019.

“CMS has spent the last two years working on the IMPACT Act, and they are now ready to implement,” reports Mary Beth Pace, vice president of care management at Trinity Health. “Does the CoP resemble anything akin to what you thought they would come out with? It does not to us. Let me reflect on our initial shock, and then our action.”

For a field report on how one major health system is preparing for this major new policy, RACmonitor has invited Ms. Pace to be the special guest during the next edition of Monitor Mondays.

Other segments to be featured on the broadcast include the following:

  • RAC Report: Healthcare attorney Knicole Emanuel will report on the status of the Medicaid lawsuit filed after more than two dozen plaintiff Virginia behavioral healthcare providers had their managed care contracts terminated by six defendant managed care organizations (MCOs). Emanuel, a member of the RACmonitor editorial board, is a partner in the Potomac Law Group.

  • SDoH Report: Ellen Fink-Samnick, a nationally recognized expert on the social determinants of health (SDoH), will have the latest news on a trending topic that is attracting significant media attention. Ellen will also conduct the Monitor Mondays Listener Survey.

  • Fraud Report: The manager of multiple medical clinics in Brooklyn and Queens, New York, was found guilty for his role in a nearly $100 million healthcare kickback and money laundering scheme, according the U.S. Department of Justice. Reporting this story will be famed whistleblower attorney Mary Inman, partner in the London office of Constantine Cannon.
     
  • Risky Business: Healthcare attorney David Glaser will join the broadcast with his trademark segment, in which he reports on problematic issues facing providers.
     
  • Monday Rounds: Ronald Hirsch, MD, vice president of R1 RCM, will be making his Monday Rounds with another installment of his popular segment.
