Persimmony Software recently integrated their Time Study module into Persimmony Suite, streamlining user experience and enabling Santa Clara First 5 users to drastically increase their data entry Medi-Cal Administrative Activities (MAA) compliance.
In the first four months since the integration, Santa Clara First 5 employee compliance has grown by 52% and supervisor compliance has grown by 136%.
As a result, staff are entering data efficiently, on-schedule, and in compliance with MAA standards to achieve maximum reimbursements.
Prior to this integration, Time Study compliance was low, and submittal was often late, supervisors lacked the ability to easily identify where holes were or provide feedback. Ultimately, reimbursement was not maximized, and money was left on the table.
Now, access to Time Study is seamless and there is no need to log in separately. Reminders — notifications and alerts — are clearly communicated with users and supervisors about outstanding timesheet information. Enhanced logic built into the software enforces MAA reimbursement rules, leading to easier processing and less stress on staff. Streamlined report generation from within the application simplifies administrator-level work and reimbursement submittal.
Why is MAA Compliance Important to Programs Such as Santa Clara First 5?
County Mental Health Plans (MHPs) may claim federal reimbursement for the cost of administrative activities that support the Medi-Cal program.
Counties and chartered cities, defined as LGAs in California, provide a wide range of health care administration and related services, which may or may not be reimbursable under the Medi-Cal program. California covers all mandatory Medicaid groups and the vast majority of optional groups. CMAA and TCM are two of many Medi-Cal programs provided by counties.
LGAs participating in the TCM program are eligible to receive federal reimbursement for the cost of providing services that directly support services covered under the State Medicaid Plan.
Using Persimmony Software to input your program’s Time Study data, ensures you are upholding MAA and TCM compliance. More money reimbursed means more funding for programs and a greater impact on your community.
