The Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) is partnering with ADvancing States to incorporate provider feedback and resume training webinars this fall with more useful and meaningful content for Home- and Community-Based Services (HCBS) long-term services and supports (LTSS) providers.

In today's system, HCBS LTSS providers enter into a contract with Indiana Medicaid when they become an IHCP provider. In the future, these providers will also have the option to enter into a contract with health plans. When the time comes to negotiate a contract with a health plan, it is important to know that every provider and health plan partnership is different. Today, providers do not negotiate contracts with Indiana Medicaid, but this shifts when working with health plans. The "Contracting with Health Plans" session will help providers navigate various types of contracts or agreements. Also, providers will learn about the life cycle and time frames of the contracting process within a new system. This session will address key areas of a typical contract, such as effective dates, termination dates, data-sharing requirements, and when, how and under which conditions payments occur. It is critical that providers fully understand all parts of the agreement and what happens when the contract is not fulfilled. Knowing these details will help set the stage for success. Attendees will be able to ask questions and participate in open dialogue during the training and at the end of the training during the Q&A session. The training webinar will be recorded.
