Understanding Medicaid: An Uphill Battle for Facility Managers

Understanding Medicaid: An Uphill Battle for Facility Managers

Delays, Denials, and Reputational Damage

Benjamin Franklin is quoted as having said, “It takes many good deeds to build a good reputation, and only one bad one to lose it.”

As an operator of a long-term care facility or nursing home, you know how valuable your reputation is in attracting new residents. However, an inefficient Medicaid application process administered by under-trained staff will quickly result in resident turnover, benefit denials, empty beds, loss of revenue, and reputational damage.

Don’t let this happen to your facility.
