The Basics of CHC Medicaid Reimbursement
CCHN Web Resource
CCHN staff have developed a series of short, web-based trainings on the basics of CHC cost reporting and reimbursement in Colorado Medicaid. These were developed at the request of CCHN Board members and provide a great overview of how things work in our state. The trainings are not meant to supplant expertise in fiscal management or coding and billing, but they will help orient staff to how CHCs are reimbursed differently and the regulatory basis is for that reimbursement. The trainings include the background of PPS, the difference between PPS and APM, Change in Scope, and the definition of an Encounter. All recordings, downloadable slides, and additional resources can be accessed here.
