With the Medicaid 1115 waiver on hold, hospitals now have more time to prepare for the waiver's implementation. KHA will provide a one-hour webinar on Tuesday, July 10 at 10:00 a.m. (ET) to update the membership on key information surrounding the implementation of the Kentucky HEALTH Medicaid 1115 waiver.

A workgroup of hospital representatives has been meeting with the state and KHA wants to assure that the full membership has the most up-to-date information. The webinar will cover how premiums will work and payments by third parties, including considerations for your hospital.

Please invite your business office or other staff to participate.

In addition, there is a wealth of information on waiver implementation on the KHA website (www.kyha.com) under the Advocacy tab. Simply log in with your email address to access the resources.

Now more than ever, it is important for health care organizations to simulate a real-life cybersecurity attack and test their cybersecurity incident response plans in a confidential way.

KHA and KHA Solutions Group are pleased to announce this unique opportunity program with a top-rated cybersecurity firm, Sensato Cybersecurity Solutions, that solves the problem of being offsite to conduct incidence response plans with three (3) cybersecurity tactical simulation webinars.

These webinars give authentic landscape simulations so providers can test and tweak their cybersecurity incident response plans without ever leaving their physical location.

Hospitals that participate in these webinars will receive a Cybersecurity Tactical Simulation Certificate of participation. All materials used will be available to participating organizations.

Webinar Dates:

On June 25, KHA submitted comments to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on the proposed fiscal year (FY) 2019 hospital inpatient prospective payment system (IPPS) rule.

While KHA was appreciative of many of the changes proposed by the rule, the Association has concerns about the agency's proposal to require publication of hospital chargemasters due to questions about its usefulness for consumers. The comments also offered suggestions to address calculation of Medicare disproportionate share hospital (DSH) payments and wage index disparities which are harming Kentucky hospitals.

A full copy of the comments is available on the Policy Issues page, found under Advocacy on the KHA website, www.kyha.com....

KHA's patient safety organization (PSO), the Kentucky Institute for Patient Safety and Quality (KIPSQ) will host a free Summer Forum for all Kentucky hospitals on July 24 in Lexington.

The KIPSQ Summer Forum will gather both PSO members and non-PSO members to discuss and understand the advantages of membership, data collection, common format reporting and mapping from a risk management system to the PSO. Presentations will encompass regulations, state peer review and case law followed by a panel discussion featuring hospitals who are actively reporting to the PSO.

CEOs, health care attorneys, risk management professionals, patient safety officers, quality leaders, nurse leaders, clinical leaders, senior executives and administrative leaders are all encouraged to attend.

KHA had a victorious 2018 legislative session with KHA priorities becoming law. This success was made possible through the assistance of you and the entire KHA membership. KHA’s Legislative Platform priorities of an updated methodology for the distribution of DSH funding, peer review process confidentiality, a streamlined physician and provider credentialing process, telehealth legislation and a streamlined certificate of need process were all passed into law. New laws passed by the General Assembly that do not include an emergency clause or a different specified effective date go into effect on July 14.

We appreciate your help on legislative and regulatory issues affecting hospitals. Your work in this process is invaluable. When hospitals combine their strength and collectively express their concerns to elected officials, more can be accomplished.

A copy of the 2018 Kentucky General Assembly Report for Hospitals including the legislative voting record is available at https://www.kyha.com/assets/docs/AdvocacyDocs/2018/KHALegislativeFinalReport2018.pdf...

KHA members are invited to join staff on an Advocacy Trip to Washington on July 12-13. Thanks to those who have already indicated that they would participate in this trip.  With attacks on the 340B Drug program, Medicaid DSH Cuts and Opioid and Behavioral Health Treatment under Medicaid being dealt with by this Congress, it is imperative that Kentucky hospitals stay in constant contact with the Senators and Congressmen representing the state in Washington.

Participants will travel to Washington on the morning of July 12, arriving for a lunch briefing at AHA and have meetings on Capitol Hill with Senators and Congressmen that afternoon. On the morning of July 13, there will be more Capitol Hill delegation appointments and the day will conclude by hosting the health staff of Kentucky's congressional delegation for a lunch briefing at 11:30 a.m. Members can depart after 1:00 p.m. (ET).

Members are requested to make their own room reservations at the Washington Court Hotel, 525 New Jersey Avenue, NW,...

SUNRx LogoEligible hospitals struggle to stretch their scarce resources to provide the crucial services their patients need while maintaining financial security. And while many patients they serve can’t afford to pay for high priced medications, it doesn’t have to be this way — a 340B program administered by SUNRx can help.

SUNRx’s 340B prescription discount card program provides a conduit for covered entities to pass along 340B savings to their patients. Because SUNRx is a wholly owned subsidiary of pharmacy benefit manager (PBM), MedImpact Heathcare Systems, this 340B prescription discount card program is unique from others. SUNRx confirms 340B patient eligibility and applies its “lower of” cost calculation to find the lowest price available for the patient. This process is accomplished in real time when your patient presents the 340B prescription discount card along with their prescription to the contract pharmacy....

As a result of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) mandates that payment adjustments be applied to Medicare-eligible hospitals and critical access hospitals (CAHs) that are not meaningful users of certified electronic health record (EHR) technology under the EHR Incentive Programs (now called the Promoting Interoperability (PI) Programs).

Eligible hospitals and CAHs may be exempt from Medicare penalties if they can show that demonstrating meaningful use would result in a significant hardship. To be considered for an exemption and avoid a payment adjustment, health care providers must complete a hardship exception application and provide proof of hardship. If approved, the hardship exception is valid for only one payment year.

Hardship Exception Application Details
