Improving Financial Performance for IIDD Service Providers

Brady Ware understands both the Intermediate Care Facility (ICF) and Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Waiver programs in a way that no other firm does. In fact, our Director Gary Brown helped shape the ICF and Waiver programs in Ohio. If you provide services in both settings, you need an advisor who is intimately aware of the issues in both areas. Don’t let either the ICF or Waiver side of your delivery unnecessarily drain your overall resources.

Regardless of the setting in which you deliver services to Individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, Brady Ware can help you improve your financial performance.

Home and Community-Based Service Waivers

Build and Leverage County and State Relationships

Individual Options (IO), Level I, Self-Empowered Life Funding (SELF) and Transitions Developmental Disabilities (TDD) Waivers provide Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (IIDD) with a wide range of possible living arrangements and services, while allowing flexibility in service provider selection. These choices can lead to more independence and control, thereby greatly improving the quality of life for many individuals who desire and would benefit from these alternatives to Intermediate Care Facilities.

Due to the complexity of local County Board of DD administration, appropriate funding for these Waivers often present difficult challenges for service providers. When you provide authorized services, you need and deserve to receive the appropriate amount of payment in a timely manner. That’s where Brady Ware comes in. We are experts in helping you establish strong, respectful relationships with the County Boards where you operate, in addition to the individuals you serve and their guardians. We also help you navigate the state DODD system to ensure proper payments.

 

Here are a few of the ways we work with you to establish effective operational and financial models in the waiver setting:
Consultation regarding service authorizations through the Individual Service Planning (ISP) process. This includes, but is not limited to, the appropriate use of On-Site-On-Call (OSOC), Routine Homemaker / Personal Care, and Transportation Services.
Consultation regarding the web-based Cost Projection Tool (CPT) ensuring the accurate payment of services billed through the Daily Rate Application (DRA) process when services are in shared as well as in individual settings.
Consultation regarding the Ohio Developmental Disabilities Profile (ODDP) process and a direct link to appropriate residential and in-home funding.
Consultation regarding the Ohio Acuity Assessment Instrument (AAI) process and a direct link to appropriate day service funding.
Interpretation of State Administrative Rules & Regulations
Consultation on Cost Effective and Best Practice Operational Models
Compilation, Review, and Audit (including governmental) Services
MBS Waiver Service Billing

Intermediate Care Facilities Consulting for IIDD Providers

Receive Accurate and Appropriate Funding

Intermediate Care Facilities (ICF) that provide services to Individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IIDD) require solid information and adequate planning to thrive in the ever-changing reimbursement environment.

Today’s reimbursement system has gone through many changes since the original prospective reimbursement system was put in place 21 years ago. What used to be a predictable system is now plagued with Band-Aids to control costs, including a state-wide cap and various permanent and temporary law changes to the existing formulary.

Brady Ware is keenly aware of all of these nuances and continues to help mold future fiscal policy to keep it responsible to providers. In addition, Brady Ware’s IIDD service provider consulting group has nearly 30 years of experience providing the following services to ensure that facilities like yours receive accurate and appropriate funding.
