We've created a brand new infographic, full of interesting and telling stats, facts, and figures specific to the great state of Missouri. It's an interesting way to look at the proposed changes to minimum wage and the DOL's proposed overtime rule - and with big font and fun graphics, it's just plan nice to look at.Read More

Some sports are designed for anyone and everyone to enjoy. Traditionally, golf has not been one of them.
Not only are golf courses unfriendly ground for those in wheelchairs or anyone using adaptive equipment, the sport (and everything you need to play) is typically expensive.
Modified clubs, tees, and carts do exist - but they're not easy to come by... and even if you have them, most courses cannot accomodate them.
That's all about to change in Jefferson City, Missouri.
Ground-breaking for the Ken Lanning Golf Center happened in early June, and project organizers hope to have the new course completed by late Fall.Read More

Provider Partner Spotlight:
If she never has to manually enter Medicaid claims data online again, it will be too often for Betty Stahlman, accounts receivable manager with Developmental Services of Franklin County (DSFC), which provides support services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. In August 2009, Stahlman began manually entering data to the Missouri State Customer Information Management Outcomes Reporting System, or CIMOR, for payment. As a human service agency, DSFC is required to report information relating to the care of the disabled individuals they serve and provide services to help them achieve independent and empowered lives. It is these services that Missouri Medicaid funds as long as agencies like DSFC prove that the prescribed goals and outcomes have been worked on. A new partnership finalized in early April 2015, lays that time-consuming process to rest and opens the door to better quality care for those served by DSFC. It also makes DSFC the first agency waiver provider to electronically interface developmental disabilities claims data to the state for Medicaid reimbursements via CIMOR. By eliminating manual entry into this system, the state is receiving claims data faster and more reliably and for DSFC, significantly cutting down admin time and substantially reducing the chance of errors.
