Enhancing Business Acumen with New Revenue Streams

Health care providers and payers–such as Medicaid, Medicare, Managed Care Organizations (MCOs)–and others are increasingly looking to community service providers for their expertise in helping to improve the social determinants of health that impact the health and well-being of older adults and people with disabilities. However, as organizations seek to meet the needs of these growing populations, resources can be scarce. To help tap into new revenue streams and to guide the pursuit of financial sustainability, state aging and disability organizations, as well as community-based organizations (CBOs), are looking to enhance their business skills to enable them to market their services, compete in a changing marketplace, and ensure funding for services. 

A specific opportunity that states and CBOs are engaging in is Medicaid Administrative Claiming, also known as Federal Financial Participation (FFP). Medicaid claiming allows agencies to draw down funds for work they do that support Medicaid programs. 

To learn more, check out the new infographic on strategies to sustain a state’s No Wrong Door access system, which includes data trends and details on funding sources that support state systems as well as preliminary information about how to develop the infrastructure to support Medicaid Administrative Claiming.

ACL is hosting a webinar on Medicaid claiming on January 10, 2018 at 2 pm EST. This webinar will include an overview of NWD Medicaid claiming, the NWD System Medicaid Administrative Claiming Workbook and Toolkit, and will include input from states currently claiming.
