KY SOS LogoThe National Institute on Drug Abuse ranks Kentucky among the top 10 states with the highest opioid-related overdose deaths, and Kentucky’s hospitals are on the front line in the fight to help the state recover.

Mike Rust PortraitOn Friday, Michael T. Rust announced his plans to retire on December 31, 2019, after 24 years as President and Chief Executive Officer of the Kentucky Hospital Association (KHA). Rust leaves a long and impactful legacy not only on the Association, but on all hospitals and health care in the state of Kentucky.

Rust has led KHA through nearly two and a half decades of change in the health care industry. Under his leadership, all the hospitals in Kentucky have retained membership in the Association, helping them speak with one common voice at both the state and federal levels.

“Mike has been an invaluable part of KHA during his tenure,” stated Jane Wheatley, chair of the KHA Board and president of Taylor Regional Hospital in Campbellsville. “He has enhanced the organization at every level and been a unifying force for hospitals throughout the commonwealth. The KHA Board and I are immensely grateful for his service.”

“It has been an honor serving KHA and the hospitals of Kentucky,” Rust noted. “I have enjoyed my time with the Association and I’m proud of the accomplishments we’ve made supporting hospitals and ensuring they can continue to provide the highest quality care to all Kentuckians.”

The KHA Board will engage a search firm in early 2019 to find a successor. To ensure the best possible candidate is selected for the position, a national search will be conducted.

On February 27, KHA received notice from the state Office of Inspector General (OIG) that plans of correction in response to an OIG inspection/complaint investigation can no longer contain disclaimer statements. This is effective immediately.

If a facility submits a plan of correction with a disclaimer statement in it, the plan of correction will be considered unacceptable and the facility will be notified accordingly. OIG will not be able to conduct revisits or place a facility back in compliance until an acceptable plan of correction is received.

Sandra Houchen, director of the Division of Health Care for the OIG stated that she understood these disclaimer statements have been a long-term, ongoing practice by facilities in this state and other states. However, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in Region IV has instructed that the state survey agencies are not to accept plans of correction that contain disclaimer statements going forward.

Governor Matt Bevin held a news conference Wednesday morning to announce his plan to replace Kentucky's expanded Medicaid program.

Bevin would like to launch a program called “Helping to Engage and Achieve Long Term Health” (HEALTH). It would be a waiver application process for people wanting Medicaid coverage. This plan is a 1115 waiver from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for a demonstration project designed to "provide dignity to individuals as they move towards self-reliability, accountability and ultimately independence from public assistance." It is only for the Medicaid expansion population — those between 100-138% of the Federal Poverty Level (FP)L. Governor Bevin stressed that this program is for able-bodied participants, and not the frail or elderly.

“This proposal is modeled after the very same health plan offered to Kentucky state employees including incentives to promote healthy lifestyles. This plan offers common sense strategies to help our citizens...

Kim Dees will be leaving the KHA staff at the end of June upon mutual agreement with KHA President Mike Rust. Dees has served for nine years as KHA’s Vice President for Health Professions. The loss of anticipated grant funding from an American Apprenticeship Initiative earlier in the year and dissolution of the Workforce Consortium last year eliminated funding support for the position. At the same time, Dees was investigating other opportunities she hopes to pursue that may continue to offer her the opportunity to interact with KHA members and nursing leadership, both in hospitals and universities.

Baptist Health Paducah and hospital Baptist Health Madisonville have both received federal approval to move forward with plans to develop long-term acute care hospitals (LTACHs) within each facility. Baptist Health is partnering with ContinueCARE Hospital, a not-for-profit Community Hospital Corporation subsidiary based in Plano, Texas, to operate the new hospitals within the current facilities at Paducah and Madisonville.

The first stage of the new “hospital within a hospital” program for long-term patients will both open at Baptist Health Madisonville and Baptist Health Paducah this summer, eventually saving 540 families a year in Madisonville and 800 families a year in the Paducah area from having to travel out of the area for care.

During the demonstration phase, the hospitals will meet the needs of their patients instead of transferring them out to a distant facility. Once licensed, the local facility will be able to accept more patients from neighboring hospitals.

Long-term acute care hospitals (LTACHs) specialize in treating critically-ill patients needing extended care for 25 days or more who:...

In an effort to spread the word and to make sure that health care providers (and school personnel) are familiar with the Caregiver Authorization Law, KHA is alerting hospitals that when caregivers come in and present an affidavit stating they are the primary caregiver of the child, that health care treatment is then authorized.

The law was passed last year (SB 176) and it allows a relative caregiver to sign an affidavit to access key services for the children in their care without the need for legal custody or guardianship.  Caregivers can complete an affidavit, under penalty of perjury, stating that they are the primary caregiver of the child, and then by presenting the form, they can authorize health care treatment, educational services, and school enrollment.

The Kentucky Youth Advocates worked with an attorney from Legal Aid to create a model affidavit which is essentially a form that caregivers can complete to create their own affidavit, based on what is now statute.  The form can then be presented...

Coroners, funeral home personnel, physicians and others responsible for the registration of death certificates will soon be required to electronically file information needed to complete death certificates, using the Kentucky Electronic Death Registration System (KY-EDRS).  

The change will take effect January 1, 2015, phasing out the paper based system currently used by the Office of Vital Statistics in conjunction with electronic reporting.  The transition to exclusive electronic filing, mandated by state law, is anticipated to speed the process, while maintaining the accuracy and security of the records.
