Payroll Process Communication - July 15, 2013

First of all the payroll dept. would like to say thank you to all the staff that completed their timesheets and paperwork on time during the holiday week.   This dramatically improved the efficiency and thoroughness of the payroll process.  In order to keep this efficiency, going forward we are changing the way we handle some of our timekeeping processes.  For the vast majority, these changes should not affect you and you will continue to receive your payroll as you have been.  Please read below and contact the payroll dept. in the Valley Center office if you have any questions.

All Saints to Provide Service for all KanCare Health Plans

All Saints Home Care, Inc., is pleased to announce our joining all 3 provider networks for the upcoming KanCare transition. The KanCare program is the State of Kansas’ plan to transition Kansas Medicaid into an integrated care model. Kansas has contracted with three new health plans, or managed care organizations (MCOs), to begin coordinating health care for nearly all Medicaid beneficiaries. The KanCare program is scheduled to begin in January 2013. The KanCare health plans are Amerigroup of Kansas, Inc. (Amerigroup), Sunflower State Health Plan (Sunflower), and UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of Kansas (United).

Assurance Phone Program

As you may know, the state of Kansas implemented the IVR phone system in January of this year.  The system requires workers to use their clients’ phone to clock in and out for their shifts.  We are aware of different issues that prevent some clients from using this system, most likely because they do not have a phone at all, they have a cell phone with limited minutes or a phone that is unreliable. 

It is our goal to help all of our clients obtain a phone, at no expense to them, so that they can be in compliance with the state IVR phone system. Attached below, please find an application for an Assurance Wireless phone.  This is a program funded by the state of Kansas to people who are unable to afford a phone on their own.  

We sincerely hope this information will prove useful.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Carrie at (316) 755-1076, ext. 104.
