Take Note: June 30, 2019 Deadline for Advance Care Planning Training (ACP) to Earn Quality Add-On Dollars

The June 30, 2019 deadline is fast approaching to complete ACP training in order to earn quality add-on dollars for your facilities.  The ACP training is a new requirement of the Indiana Value Based Purchashing (VBP)program, and it is worth 5 of the 100 points that will be used to calculate the quality add-on portion for July 1, 2019 nursing facility rates.  The training is a 4-hour online and on-demand program using the Relias platform.  Details on how to access the training can be found here.

In order to earn the full 5 points in 2019, at least one employee must have completed the training on or before June 30, 2019.    For 2020, a facility must have at least one ACP-training employee for six out of the 12 months of the year. For 2021, a facility must have at least one ACP-training employee for nine out of the 12 months of the year.  For questions or more detail, please contact Elizabeth Eichhorn at eeichhorn@ihca.org or 317.616.9031.
