A Special Message from NADSA . . .

We continue to hold everyone affected by the recent hurricanes in our thoughts and prayers. In speaking with the Vinoy Hotel, we learned that minimal damage was sustained from the hurricane, and they are open for business. We are pleased to remind everyone that we will proceed with the NADSA 2017 Conference, September 25-27.

Beginning September 13, NADSA will donate $25 of each new full conference registration that comes in prior to conference to relief charities to support recovery efforts in Florida. We are also planning additional activities during the conference to help adult day centers that have been impacted by these catastrophic events.

We appreciate the calls of support we have received these last few days. We feel very fortunate to be part of such a compassionate and amazing profession. By proceeding with the conference, we will bring much-needed revenue to the state to assist in their rebuilding process. We are grateful we can help.

We will accept registrations at the regular conference rate through Monday, September 17, 2017. You may register on-site, but we prefer advance notice so we can plan.

Please contact if you have questions.

Breakthrough Changes in Improper Billing QMBs

HOST / SPONSOR: Justice in Aging
CO-SPONSOR: National Council on Aging (NCOA) National Center for Benefits Access
11:00 AM (Pacific) | FEE: None | REGISTER

Medicare providers are prohibited from billing Qualified Medicare Beneficiaries (QMBs) for any Medicare co-payments or deductibles. This includes most dual eligibles. However, the problem of improper billing persists.

A significant change in Medicare Summary Notices (MSNs) and in provider remittance notices starts in October. The change is designed to give QMBs more protection from bills that they should not have to pay and help providers determine who should not be billed. The revised MSNs will show that the QMB’s payment responsibility is zero for each Medicare-covered service and denote that the zero cost is due to the individual’s QMB status. Remittance notices to providers will also show that no remaining amount is due from the beneficiary, and eligibility query systems will provide clear information on a patient’s QMB status. The notices are meant to make it easier for both providers and consumers to understand payment responsibilities.

This free webinar will explain the changes in detail. It will include:

  • a general overview of improper billing
  • help for advocates and counselors to understand how to interpret the revised MSNs
  • how to understand what provider billing offices see, and
  • tips and resources if your client continues to receive improper bills

Medicaid Long-Term Services and Supports

HOST: National Center on Law & Elder Rights (NCLER)
11:00 AM (Pacific) | FEE: None | REGISTER

Long-term services and supports (LTSS) are vital to millions of Americans. According to a Department of Health & Human Services Research Brief, of persons turning age 65 today, 52 percent will need some form of LTSS in the future. In many cases, the necessary LTSS will be funded through Medicaid. The financing and quality of LTSS often depend upon Medicaid laws and policies. Despite the importance of these laws and policies, they often are not well known among both consumers and aging network professionals.

As a follow-up to September’s Legal Basics: Medicaid 101 presentation, this legal basics webinar will provide an overview of LTSS that will include both home and community-based services and institutional care. The discussion and materials will address care provided at home, at a day center, in an assisted living facility, or in a nursing facility. The webinar will be useful to legal advocates, service providers, and other members of the aging services network.

Closed captioning will be available on this webinar. A link with access to the captions will be shared through GoToWebinar’s chat box shortly before the webinar start time.
