Reduction in Attendant Care Services Reimbursement

FV Indiana shares the following informaiton as released by the The Office of Medicaid Policy and Planning (OMPP): The Office of Medicaid Policy and Planning (OMPP)has determined a change in reimbursement is necessary in order to avoid an anticipated budgetary shortfall and to remain within the available Medicaid appropriation. As a result, reim-bursement for attendant care services will be reduced by 5 percent beginning for dates of service on or after January 1, 2011. If the changes are not implemented January 1, 2011, providers will be notified of the revised date and HP will mass adjust claims retrospectively. The OMPP appreciates your cooperation and your continued participation as providers in the Indiana Health Coverage Program. If you have questions about this bulletin, please contact Customer Assistance at (317) 655-3240 in the Indianapolis local area or toll-free at 1-800-577-1278.

In Search of Young Artists with Disabilities/SHCN

Family Voices is looking for three frameable pieces of art to use as the awards for the three Lifetime Achievement Awards at the Gala in February 2011. In 2007, we had pieces by Nick Arango (Polly Arango’s son), Cassily Woll (Josie Woll’s daughter), and Matt White (Cindy White’s son). In 2009, we had three pieces by Jessica Vohl. Examples attached. If you know of any young artists who have disabilities and/or SHCN who would like to have their artwork highlighted in this way, please send their info along! We will definitely pay for the artwork (within a reasonable cost). Please reply by Nov. 24. Thanks! Rachel & Karen Rachel N.
