Living Trusts Give You Enhanced FDIC Account Protection! At a recent Client Advisory Board meeting, one of our good clients reminded me to advise you of one major advantage to holding your assets in a living trust instead of in your individual or joint names, namely, enhanced FDIC protection. Normally, an individual has $250,000.00 of FDIC protection for bank accounts, but if those same accounts are held in the name of your living trust, you receive $250,000.00 FDIC protection for every beneficiary named in the trust at no additional cost to you! This is a great way to make sure all your money is guaranteed by the US government. Be sure to tell your relatives and friends of this very important protection you have received through your estate plan with Greenhalgh Legal Services!

Keep a Vigilant Lookout for Your Medicare Enrollment Revalidation Notice
PPACA require providers to restate and verify existing enrollment information and also triggers screening under new program integrity rules. Upon receipt of the revalidation request, a provider has 60 days from the date of the letter to submit the required information. The revalidation process can occur through the web-based Provider Enrollment, Chain, and Ownership System (PECOS), or through submission of a new CMS-855 paper application form. Failure to submit the enrollment forms as requested can result in the deactivation of the provider’s Medicare billing privileges. In light of the 60-day response time required for providers to submit revalidation paperwork as well as the consequences that may result from failure to do so, physicians should prepare themselves for the revalidation process.

Arkansas Medicaid Officials Apply For $60 Million Federal Grant
The grant application notes that the estimated cost to the state for this system transformation will be about $32.8M over a three and a half year period beginning in January 2013. That’s a significant sum, but putting it into perspective, that would allow us to achieve lasting and fundamental quality and cost improvements for less than 1% of our current annual expenditures with the potential, if successful, to return over $1 billion in savings to the state Medicaid program through 2020.
