Joanna Nickel - PRIDE Certificate RecipientDATES: December 16, 2015
Medicaid denied a much needed medical device for one of the ladies at ICF3. Without Joanna’s diligence this could have cost the Agency $16,000.00. Joanna completed phone interviews ensuring that the necessary diagnoses were included in the paperwork – the vest was soon approved by the insurance company. This has been received and staff have been trained to use it. The parent is pleased with this plan of care and ecstatic that the shaker vest was pursued.
