LeadingAge Michigan works to keep members in the KNOW. Our Fall 2019 Finance and Strategy Day includes many topics that may seriously impact our members. And this summer there has been no lack of issues: changes to Nursing Home Provider Tax because of QAS shortfalls, the Governor’s proposed budget cut for Nursing Homes, the MI Health Link extension and the Nursing Facility Quality Measure Initiative. Additionally, the challenge to tax exempt status will be a focus with discussion of what constitutes charitable intent and a recent Administrative Law Judge decision rendering Life Plan Communities ineligible to bill Medicaid. Our program will conclude with Demystifying Digital Transformation for LTC Finance Strategies. We hope you can join us for this lively and interactive program.
