JCC once again has consulting services for Medicaid programs!
Ms. Debra Hughes has recently joined the JCC team to bring her extensive knowledge and expertise in Medicaid and Managed Care programs to our agencies.
Ms. Debra has over 40 years of nursing experience, with 33 years of extensive hands on working knowledge in home health and the Texas Community Care Programs as a supervisor, administrator and consultant with a focus on Primary Home Care (PHC), Family Care (FC), Managed Care Organizations (MCO) and Electronic Visit Verification (EVV).
She has been an active member of TAHCH for over 30 years, serving on the Community Care Services Committee and Private Pay Committee. She served as the Community Care Services Committee Chair for 2 years and Vice Chair for 4 years. She was also awarded the Mary Jo Gabbert Nursing Award from the Texas Association of Home Care and Hospice.
If your agency has consulting needs for these types of programs, please do not hesitate to call the office at 940-427-2488 for more information.
JCC is going green by offering our manuals and updates in a digital format only. JCC has been offering digital PDF manuals for years, as well as a hardcopy version. After listening to feedback from our agencies, JCC will now only offer the digital versions.
The Perks of Digital:
- You can print as many copies as you need. No more fighting with a copy machine trying to run a paper copy through the feeder, or losing quality by copying a copy of a copy.
- You no longer have to worry about someone writing on your paper manual and ruining your only copy.
- You no longer have to worry about someone taking a page out and losing it.
- Mailing a heavy set of manuals can be expensive, and averaged $30-50 a set. Digital manuals will save shipping costs for our clients. You save green!
- By going digital, you’ll be going GREEN and reducing your carbon footprint! Go you!
Agencies still have the option to print out the manual completely if they choose to do so, however there is not a reg that requires a paper copy of manuals. Moving forward, manual updates will be given by email to our agencies. If you are still using a hardcopy of your manual, feel free to print out your updates before your consultant arrives.
If you have any questions, please feel to call the office at 940-427-2488 and we will happily answer any questions you have about our manuals.
