HCS serves Alabama nursing facilities by working to obtain and sustain all entitled reimbursement for Medicaid services. Consulting services are offered through an hourly, per month retainer. This allows us to take a proactive approach to preventing the loss of reimbursements and improving cash flow. Our support includes on-site visits with facility personnel and readily-available phone consultation. In addition, HCS publishes fax notices, newsletters, and training materials to keep retained clients abreast of current Medicaid issues, policies, and procedures.
