As Medicare Advantage enrollment continues to outpace traditional fee-for-service coverage, senior living providers face new challenges in providing high-quality care while grappling with reduced reimbursement rates.

In our webinar, panelists Susie Mix (founder and CEO of Mix Solutions Inc.), Tara Cohn (director at Wipfli) and Tiffany Karlin (principal at Wipfli), examined the implications of this trend for senior services.

They shared practical insights and proposed viable solutions to empower providers in the face of an evolving managed care enrollment landscape. They also covered how data transparency can be the catalyst for positive change and effective negotiations in securing fair reimbursement rates with managed care.

Topics discussed included:

  • Understanding the surge: Why Medicare Advantage enrollment is surpassing Medicare fee-for-service and the impact on reimbursement
  • The data transparency gap: Expanding on the barriers skilled nursing facilities face in accessing transparent data for comprehensive cost-of-care analysis, diagnosis code-specific cost breakdowns and real-time data transparency in case management and decision-making
  • Elevating the role of data transparency: Recognizing data transparency as a key tool in negotiating favorable rates with Medicare Advantage
