Nyle has inquired about bidding the IT for CCAD. The Board is satisfied with our current IT and has no interest in bidding for the position at this time.

Bill will have the employee evaluations ready for June board meeting.

Bill is also doing the annual third grade Safety Reports with the schools in Chariton County. There will be one student from each school that will receive a $10.00 gift certificate for having the best-written report. Each student will have the chance to compete nationally in the Mr. Computer contest.

Due to the recent hail storm, the roof of the Salisbury base and the mass casualty trailer have sustained extensive damage. An independent adjuster of Mike Keith Insurance has recommended a full replacement of the roof of the base, awaiting response from the insurance carrier. Bill is to take the trailer to Shoemakers RV for an estimate of repair and report to the insurance carrier.

Bill is going to check with Frank Foster to see if the roof replacement will have to be a bid process or if Scott Moore can do the work being he had recently replaced the roof within the last few months.

The integration with AmbuPro ePCR is going well. Employee training will start within the next couple of weeks and the goal is to be live by May 1st.

Donna-Motion, Ronnie-Seconded, Board unanimous to accept Superintendent’s report.

2. Old Business:

A. EPCR and Billing Options – Intermedix will continue to process all pre-May 1st accounts through July 31, 2014. All open accounts will then be returned to CCAD. The percentage of collections is 11.25% without the minimum balance. Intermedix declined to bid for the billing.

The three vendors that are being considered for the billing are Mediclaims-5.9%, Proclaims-5.8% unless we are removed from the Medicaid PPR and then the rate would be 6% and NTA at a flat rate of $2200.00/month which is equivalent to 5.8%. After discussion, NTA will be removed from the bidding process. Awaiting additional information from MediClaims. A decision for the biller will be made at the May Meeting.
