KHA Team at Ceremonial Bill Signing of SB4Yesterday, Governor Matt Bevin, joined by state legislators and constituents, ceremonially signed more than a dozen pieces of recently enacted legislation at the State Capitol. Among the acts signed were House bills (HB) 128 and 161 and Senate bills (SB) 4 and 79.

SB 4 requires peer review of medical malpractice complaints by medical review panels before medical malpractice cases can go to court. A complaint can bypass the panel and go directly to court only by agreement of all parties.

Photo (left to right): KHA President Mike Rust; KHA Vice President of Health Policy Elizabeth Cobb; KHA Legislative Committee Chair Joe Koch; Governor Matt Bevin; Senator Ralph Alvarado (SB 4 sponsor); KHA Vice President of Government Relations Sarah S. Nicholson; and KHA Board Chair Susan Starling.

From AHA: A new and evolving cyberattack using a variant of Ransomware has hit businesses in Ukraine, India, France, Russia and Spain. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) informed AHA that some U.S. hospitals and a pharmaceutical company also have been attacked. At this time, there is no definitive assessment about the source of the cyberattack. HHS is advising vigilance and following general cyber hygiene practices, such as ensuring that all your systems’ patches and anti-virus definitions are up to date. AHA is closely monitoring the situation and will update members as more information becomes available.

Most laws that made it through the Kentucky General Assembly earlier this year take effect on Thursday, June 29. The exceptions were those that had emergency clauses that triggered them to take effect immediately and those that specified later effective dates.

Of special note for hospitals are the Family Caregiver Act, which allows an inpatient to designate a caregiver to be recorded in the medical record and notified prior to the patient’s discharge, as well as the mammography bill, which will require a notification on certain results which involve dense breast tissue.

With the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requires all ordering, referring and prescribing providers to be enrolled in the state Medicaid program. Further, all Attending Providers must also be enrolled in Kentucky Medicaid and be eligible on the claim's date of service.

The Department for Medicaid Services implemented new claim editing to monitor this requirement on April 1, 2017. As such, this requirement is applicable to all claims with dates of service beginning on that date and going forward. In order to allow providers time to comply with this requirement, claims with dates of service between April 1. 2017, and July 1, 2017, that do not meet this requirement will continue to be paid and providers will receive an "informational" EOB indicating that incorrect Attending Provider data has been submitted. 

Claims submitted for dates of service beginning on and after July 1, 2017, that do not comply with this...
