Virginia Regional Medicaid Coordinators’ Meetings

Mary Hall and Ashley Harrell (VA)

Last year the Medicaid Specialist for the State of Virginia started hosting quarterly Medicaid Coordinators’ meetings in collaboration with the state Medicaid agency. The meetings are held at a location that is central for the state. Presenters have covered a large array of topics ranging from the new state Web portal for online billing, cost settlement-lessons learned, provider qualifications review, and random moment time study updates.

There is always time for question and answer sessions. The format allows for an open forum among the coordinators to share ideas and lessons learned. Several significant changes to our program have resulted from these meetings including clarification of our record retention policies and documentation for personal care services. It has proven to be an excellent venue for the exchange of ideas and information in an informal setting.
