ADAPT TO CHANGE
THE ONLY POST-ACUTE, LONG-TERM CARE NETWORK IN ILLINOIS
Illinois Aging Services Network (ILASN) is a network of non-profit, post-acute, long-term care providers banding together to navigate the changes to reimbursement.
What does that mean for you?
LeadingAge Illinois not-for-profit, post-acute, long-term care providers have joined together to create a specialized network, ILASN, whose mission is to maximize the health and well-being of seniors through innovative, cost-effective care management practices; quality improvement activities, and contracting relationships with health plans and health delivery systems.
Members have a dedicated Managed Care Team for contract negotiation, credentialing services, and a robust quality program.
We have been very pleased with how ILASN has increased the number of managed care contracts we have. ILASN started with obtaining 5 MLTSS contracts for our communities since that was the urgent need when the Network was started. Since then, ILASN has obtained 6 commercial and Medicare advantage plans that our communities participate in and is working on 6 more contracts. The recent improvement to the collection of quality data shows promise to open the door for contracts with incentive payments to help increase reimbursement.
Barry VanderGenugten Chief Financial Officer
Membership allows us to enter contracts on a more level playing field with insurance companies due to the collective strength ILASN brings to the table supporting a large group of facilities. The collective insights into the terms also adds to the ability to negotiate effectively.
