Medicaid Audits and NCCI Update: CSHA Lobbyist Jennifer Mello, CSHA STAR Jenny Vail-Stencel, and members of the SLP Advocacy Group drafted a letter in response to the Department of Health Care Policy and Financing (HCPF). Read more.

Medicaid Audits and NCCI: Jennifer Mello at Brandeberry McKenna Public Affairs is working on Lobbying efforts regarding Medicaid Audits/Communication and NCCI Edits (2013-2016). She has contacted the governor's office and is working on a response from Medicaid regarding the guidance given by Medicaid employee's via email to SLP Providers since 2013. She will also contact key legislators if/when needed to address the issue.  CSHA will continue to support SLPs in the state who are facing this issue with Medicaid. We urge SLPs or companies employing SLPs who were effected by these audits to please reach out to Jenny Vail-Stencel (CSHA State Advocate for Reimbursement) at jenny@sparktherapy.co. CSHA urges members to stay connected while we work on this issue as a group. We will be more effective when working together. If you have had any communication with Medicaid or Legislators on this issue please let Jenny know!
