March has been a whirlwind of a month here at BLG. We had an amazing and productive exchange of ideas at our firm-wide Work Fest earlier this month. It was rejuvenating to have everyone together, sharing valuable knowledge and experiences. One of our proudest moments was sharing some of the groundbreaking work that our team has been doing across the nation.
In New Jersey , BLG attorneys are laying the groundwork to take on the chronic delays that have plagued the State’s Medicaid program for years and pose a great risk to the health and stability of the long-term care industry. We are teaming up with facilities to take a stand and hold the State accountable. If you are interested in learning more, click here .
In Texas , BLG attorneys have been steadfastly advocating for the right to recover uncovered medical expenses for long-term care Medicaid beneficiaries. We are thrilled to report that CMS has found that the Texas Health and Human Service Commission’s policy regarding post-eligiblity treatment of income (PETI) is not compliant with federal law. If CMS’s finding is upheld, it would mean hundreds of thousands of dollars in recovery to Texas providers. To read more about this significant development, click here .
Armed with CMS’s findings in Texas, BLG is pursuing similar relief for residents and providers in other states. Stay tuned for developments! If your state is refusing to allow a Medicaid recipient to apply their patient liability to their uncovered medical expenses, please contact us .
Elsewhere, Team BLG has been busy tackling Medicaid eligibility issues, pursuing guardianships, working to reduce AR, and presenting at conferences in Arizona and Kentucky. There has been quite a bit of hustle this month but we wouldn’t have it any other way!
Our firm continues to flourish thanks to our dedicated client base. We are grateful to each of you, and so very excited for all that is to come.
