Advance Care Planning Certificate Training Program available beginning September 1, 2018

As part of the new Indiana Value Based Purchasing (VBP) Program, a facility must have at least one individual who has completed a 4-hour online and on-demand Advance Care Planning (ACP) Certificate Training Program. This requirement goes into effect June 30, 2019.  The ACP training is worth five out of 100 VPB points that will be used to calculate the Quality Add On portion of the nursing facility rate for July 1, 2019.   The training program will be available online beginning September 1, 2018, giving facilities essentially 10 months to complete the training.
