The initial deadline to participate in the 2020 KHA Physician Compensation and Production Survey was scheduled for April 10, 2020. In recognition of the unprecedented times and KHA's understanding that priorities and resources have been shifted to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, the deadline for the survey is officially extended to June 3, 2020.

The goal of Kentucky Hospital Association, along with Gallagher’s Human Resource and Compensation Consulting division (formally known as “Integrated Healthcare Strategies”), is to make participation as easy as possible this year, and Gallagher is gladly willing to accept data in other formats, including physician compensation questionnaires from other vendors (e.g., MGMA, SullivanCotter, etc.). They have a team of analysts who will transfer the data to the Gallagher questionnaire.

The survey results will include a free copy of the National Gallagher Physician Compensation and Production Survey for participants, as well as...

Due to the persistent efforts of KHA and its members, the final CARES Act (developed under Senator Mitch McConnell's leadership) was passed by the Senate and contains over $100 Billion in relief to hospitals and answers requests for help for Kentucky's hospitals. A summary of the key provisions of interest to hospitals is available at https://kyha.memberclicks.net/assets/docs/COVID19/CARESActKHASummary.pdf.

Unfortunately, Congressman Thomas Massie (KY-4) has indicated he will NOT VOTE in favor of the bill when it goes to the U.S. House for a vote. The House leadership was hoping for unanimous consent, but Representative Massie is planning to stop the bill. This legislation is crucial for the survival of many of the state's hospitals and MUST PASS the House.

Call to Action

Every Kentucky hospital should contact Representative Massie IMMEDIATELY to encourage him to VOTE YES...

The Department of Medicaid Services has issued an emergency regulation (to be replaced by an ordinary regulation making the same changes) on Medicaid copayments. The regulation exempts 1915(c) Medicaid members and those who are in a long-term care facility from Medicaid co-pays, and waives copayments for all Medicaid members under Governor Andy Beshear’s emergency declaration for COVID-19. It also will allow for an MCO to reduce or eliminate copays which would impact enrollees once the emergency is lifted.

The annual Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Quality conference was held in Baltimore on February 25-27. KHA Director of Quality and Patient Safety/Workforce attended to learn more about the CMS plan for quality improvement initiatives.

The CMS Quality conference aimed to advance the Administration’s rapidly-evolving quality agenda and to gain a clear focus on how providers can better contribute to action and results that are aligned with new strategic directions from the CMS Office of Administration. CMS has three main objectives: improve quality and affordable health care, drive improvements in health care and lower costs.

CMS is currently revamping its quality improvement initiatives, and is encouraging quality improvement organizations (QIOs) to focus on providers/patients who need it the most such as the rural, vulnerable and underserved communities in conjunction with the QIO 12th scope of work:
