Need to Learn More About the Unbundled Services Payment Option? Audio Conference Scheduled for Wed., Aug. 20

The ADHCC will hold a members-only audio conference on the Unbundled Services Payment Option (USPO) from 10:30 a.m. - noon on Wed., Aug. 20. Many ADHCC and LeadingAge NY members have already registered for this free audio conference. Click here to register for the call.  Registrants will receive the call-in number and handouts on Tues., Aug. 19.

The proposed Section 425 regulations, which will allow for the USPO, were approved by the Public Health and Health Planning Council (PHHPC) on Aug. 7.  The regulations are NOT yet effective, but will be within the next few weeks.  The regulations have to be registered with the NYS Department of State and appear again in the State Register. We will advise members as soon as the regulations are effective.

Once the regulations are effective, members who are interested in using the USPO will be able to send a letter to DOH saying that your ADHC program will implement the USPO 30 days from the date of your letter. The ADHCC will provide the name of the contact at DOH as well as the sample letter when the regulations are made effective.

In addition to the audio conference, the ADHCC will run our FYI Rules and Regulations training in the fall. This is a full one-day intensive on ADHC regulations and operational issues related to ADHC programs. We will run one session upstate and one session downstate. The dates will be provided soon.
