Myers and Stauffer performs retrospective on-site service provision and case-mix reviews of certified nursing facilities on behalf of the Indiana Health Coverage Programs (IHCP). Oversight is provided by the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) through the Division of Aging (DA) and the Office of Medicaid Policy and Planning (OMPP) to help providers achieve compliance in documentation and billing, as well as help ensure the health and safety of IHCP members.
The FSSA contracts with Myers and Stauffer to complete periodic minimum data set (MDS) reviews for all residents of Medicaid-certified nursing facilities in Indiana, regardless of payer source. Every Medicaid-certified nursing facility in Indiana is reviewed a minimum of once every 3 years. (Year is defined as the State fiscal year – July 1 through June 30.)
The OMPP reserves the right to perform additional case-mix reviews as deemed necessary at any time.
The IHCP Recovery Audit Contractor (RAC) performs comprehensive reviews of financial activity for each Medicaid-enrolled resident in IHCP extended care facilities. For more information about RAC audits, see the Medicaid Recovery Audit Contractor (RAC) Overview page on this site.
Other resources for providers with questions about long-term care follow.
