Yesterday, SOURCE Steering and Leadership Committees met at the Fred A. Watson Training Center at GHCA headquarters in Stockbridge. We were excited to have many SOURCE providers in attendance. The group was joined by Brian Dowd and Lorrie Stewart from DCH, who shared updates and information about cost of care reports, expanding Medicaid eligibility for potential SOURCE clients, conflict-free case management, and the 2016 SOURCE Quality Incentive. The Quality Committee reported that, along with the Hospice Association, a subcommittee has planned training to education the case managers of both organizations on best practices around caring for their hospice clients. Tony Marshall, GHCA President and CEO, shared information regarding the potential for Medicaid block grants as well as news that GHCA is advocating for a 3% monthly case management fee increase for SOURCE agencies. SOURCE President, Dorothy Davis, announced that Hope Hickman, GHCA liaison for SOURCE members, plans to retire at the end of March. She expressed appreciation for Hope’s dedication to the SOURCE group and wished her well.
