The Business Office is responsible for estimating, implementing and tracking Medicaid budget while projecting and presenting caseload as well as expenditure estimates. This unit deals with the Legislative budget requests, the fiscal analysis for all Medicaid changes, and production of all departmental expenditure reporting using Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and statutory basis of accounting principles. In the last year, we have implemented improvements to the method for Incurred but Not Reported (IBNR) calculations and per member per month calculations. The team is responsible for communicating changes to the required reporting to the fiscal agent and ensuring that those changes are implemented in accordance with AHS’ needs.
Within the accounts payable responsibilities, the Business Office is engaged in an improvement project to move to electronic document storage and process routing.
