Post-acute and long-term care providers, consumers, and payers are interacting to produce new models of care and new ways of financing such care. This complex ecosystem includes Medicare, Medicaid, long-term care insurance, the care continuum from home and community-based care through assisted living and skilled nursing care, and the integrated care models that are springing up from Medicare Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) through dual-eligible programs. Our speaker is W. Scott Plumb, currently Managing Partner of Strategic Care Solutions (SCS) LLC, who has spent his career in various roles and organizations in senior care.
W. Scott Plumb is a founding member of SCS, a company established by individuals with decades of experience in post-acute and long-term care in Massachusetts and nationally. He is heavily involved with more than 250 nursing home clients of SCS, who have been receiving Medicaid payments billed and managed by SCS under a successful lawsuit referred to as Bulletin 94. Under Plumb?s leadership, nursing homes have received more than $15 million under the lawsuit. He also works in business development, communications and public relations, and health care consulting.
Prior to joining SCS, Mr. Plumb was Senior Vice President for the Massachusetts Senior Care Association, a trade association which represents more than 400 skilled nursing facilities and assisted living residences caring for and employing more than 100,000 citizens of the Commonwealth. Plumb worked at Mass Senior Care for more than 26 years. He directed the Association?s government relations activities and represented the profession in the design and implementation of a number of innovative projects including the national Medicare prospective payment system for skilled nursing facilities, the Massachusetts Medicaid case-mix adjusted payment system, and the Senior Care Organization (SCO) program, the state?s highly regarded program to integrate acute, primary, and long term care services for dual-eligible elders. In this role, Plumb worked extensively with many national and state organizations including the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the American Health Care Association (AHCA), the state Executive Office of Elder Affairs, Office of Medicaid, and Executive Office for Health and Human Services.
He is an acknowledged expert on the financing of long term care and has authored numerous articles in that area. He has lectured and written extensively on a number of subjects including Medicare and Medicaid, long term care insurance, and strategic planning for post-acute and long term care providers.
Prior to joining the Association, Mr. Plumb worked in the Peace Corps in India, started the Eastern Middlesex County Retired Senior Volunteer Program, and served for 14 years as the Executive Director of the Arlington Massachusetts Council on Aging, a municipally-funded health and social service agency for the elderly. He has also taught Strategic Planning and Social Work Administration part-time at Boston College?s Graduate School of Social Work and has been a guest lecturer at numerous Boston area colleges and universities including Brandeis University, Boston University, Simmons College, and Harvard University.
