1 Navigating the Buy-in October 1, 2009

2 Situation #1 Nancy Nancy is turning 65 next month. She will receive $867.00 in RSDI starting next month. Should this recipient Buy-in for Part A? No Yes If yes what date? __________ Should this recipient Buy-in for Part B? No Yes If yes what date? __________

3 Answer: Situation #1 Nancy Nancy is turning 65 next month. She will receive $867.00 in RSDI starting next month. Should this recipient Buy-in for Part A? No, it is free. Should this recipient Buy-in for Part B? Yes, 11/01/09.

4 Situation #2 Carl Carl is 58 years old and receives SSI of $674.00 for disability and MSA of $81.00. Should this recipient Buy-in for Part A? No Yes If yes what date? __________ Should this recipient Buy-in for Part B? No Yes If yes what date? __________

5 Answer: Situation #2 Carl Carl is 58 years old and receives SSI of $674.00 for disability and MSA of $81.00. Should this recipient Buy-in for Part A? No, he does not have Medicare eligibility. Should this recipient Buy-in for Part B? No, he does not have Medicare eligibility.

6 Situation #3 Lenny Lenny is 32 and receives RSDI of $400.00 and SSI of $294.00. His Medicare began 9/1/09. Should this recipient Buy-in for Part A? No Yes If yes what date? __________ Should this recipient Buy-in for Part B? No Yes If yes what date? __________

7 Answer: Situation #3 Lenny Lenny is 32 and receives RSDI of $400.00 and SSI of $294.00. His Medicare began 9/1/09. Should this recipient Buy-in for Part A? No, it is free. Should this recipient Buy-in for Part B? Yes, 9/01/09. Lenny is categorically eligible for the buy-in due to SSI and MA even if the worker does not open QMB.

8 What is the Buy-in? The Buy-in is a 2-part data exchange between DHS and CMS that pays Medicare premiums for eligible individuals. Part 1: DHS sends data via MMIS to CMS, to communicate which MHCP recipients appear eligible, or have lost eligibility, to have their Medicare A or B premiums paid by the State of Minnesota. Part 2: CMS responds. They will either accept, reject, or modify the DHS request.

9 MAXIS and the Buy-in MAXIS has to have the correct information before the buy-in process can work correctly in MMIS. STAT UNEA must have the income start date STAT MEDI must be entered including the Medicare claim number Be approved on a Medicare Savings Program (MSP) in Health Care Eligibility

10 Buy-in Eligibility To be eligible for the Buy-in a person must qualify for Medicare and: Be enrolled in an MSP Be enrolled in MA, entitled to premium-free Medicare Part A, and be enrolled in one of the following programs: Minnesota Supplemental Aid (MSA) Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP) 1619(a) or 1619(b) SSI status IV-E Adoption Assistance IV-E Foster Care Group Residential Housing (GRH)

11 Buy-in Referral Refer people not enrolled in Medicare who are eligible for the buy-in to SSA. Check TPQY in MAXIS to ensure there are no discrepancies in the persons name or DOB Complete and send DHS-3439 Medicare Buy-in Referral Letter Allow 60 days to apply for Medicare and return confirmation portion of the referral letter Update STAT PBEN in MAXIS and track return of letter on DAIL/TIKL Process MSP eligibility upon receipt of the letter

12 Previous Medicare Entitlement Do not refer people who have Part A only or Part B only or who have had Medicare previously. They are already known to SSA and do not need to reapply for Medicare to have entitlement reestablished.

13 Not Entitled to Premium-Free Part A People who qualify for Medicare, but are not entitled to premium-free Medicare Part A, including people who receive SSI only who are age 65 or older, must be enrolled in QMB to participate in the buy-in. QMB will pay the Medicare Part A premium, the Medicare Part B premium, and other Parts A and B cost sharing. Do not approve retroactive SLMB eligibility for any enrollee who must pay a premium to get Medicare Part A, even if the referral form shows a Medicare begin date in a past or current month. Approve prospective QMB eligibility only for these enrollees.

14 Accrete/Delete The communication from DHS (via MMIS) to CMS is called Accrete/Delete. This process runs 8 working days from the end of the month Everyone who has active MHCP is evaluated to see if they have become eligible, remain eligible, or have lost eligibility for the buy-in

16 Buy-in Apply The CMS response to Accrete/Delete is called Buy-in Apply Buy-in Apply runs on the 6th working day of the month (roughly 3 weeks after Accrete/Delete). Buy-in Apply may also contain CMS-initiated data that can impact buy-in such as: SSI participation Medicare begin or end dates Medicare ID number changes

18 Buy-in for Part A Must have Medicare ID# and Part A participation dates on RMCR, which can be interfaced from STAT/MEDI. Requires program eligibility of QMB or QWD. Must not have an entitlement/non-entitlement code of E on RBUY. The Part A calculated accrete request date will be the later of RELG or RMCR dates.

22 Determining the Part B Accrete Request Date The Medicare begin date is compared to RELG begin date and the later of the 2 dates is remembered as DATE 1. For categorical buy-in, further date checking is required. The MSA/GRH date is compared to SSI date on RMSC and the earlier date is remembered as DATE 2. The Part B calculated accrete request date will be the later of DATES 1 and 2.

23 Calculating DATE 1 In this example DATE 1 would be 06/01/08 NEXT: RIDS 06/16/08 09:26:24 MMIS ELIGIBILITY-RELG TILSN83 04/24/05 PWMW127 00000000 00/00/0000 * SMITH SAM S * ********************************** - - - - - - - - - - - - - - E L I G I B I L I T Y - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 01 PRG: MA ELIG TY: EXCASE: 00000000 ELIG BEGIN: 01/01/08 ELIG END: 99/99/99 CFR: 018 STATUS: A REASON: 99 STATUS DATE: 01/03/08 DATE ADDED: 01/03/08 INDICATOR: N APPL DT: 01/01/08 NEXT: RSVL 06/16/08 09:26:52 MMIS RECIP MEDICARE-RMCR TILSN83 4/24/05PWMW134 00000000 00/00/0000 * SMITH SAM S * MEDICARE ID: 123456789A ********************************** RSN: * - - - - - - - - - - - - M E D I C A R E P A R T B - - - - - - - - - - - - MEDICARE PART B BENEFITS EXHAUSTED (Y/N): DATE: BEGIN DATE END DATE SRC PPHP (Y/N) BEGIN DATE END DATE SRC PPHP (Y/N) 06/01/08 99/99/99 F

25 Determining the Part B Accrete Request Date DATE 1 and DATE 2 are now compared to determine the accrete request date In this example: DATE 1 is 06/01/08 (Medicare begin date) DATE 2 is 01/01/08 (SSI begin date) DATE 1 is the later of those 2 dates, so the Part B accrete request date is calculated to be 06/01/08.

26 Determining the Accrete Request Date – Part A or B The next step in determining the accretion date is checking whether buy-in previously existed. If so, the new accrete request date must be after the prior period. NEXT: RBYD 06/16/08 09:02:16 MMIS RECIP BUYIN-RBYB TILSN83 04/24/05 PWMW133 00000000 00/00/0000 * SMITHSAM S * MEDICARE ID: 123456789A ********************************** ENTITLE/NON-ENTITLE: * PART (B) ACCRETE REQUEST DATE: ACCRETE DATE: 06/01/05 PART (B) DELETE REQUEST DATE: DELETE DATE: 06/30/08 --------------------------BUYIN MONTHLY TRANSACTIONS------------------------ TXN TXN MCARE ACCRETE DELETE ----- PREMIUM --- DATE CODE PART DATE DATE AMOUNT DATE The calculated accrete request date was 06/01/08. In this situation the actual accrete request date sent to CMS would be 07/01/08.

27 Determining the Accrete Request Date – Part A or B The accrete request date is systematically limited to 6 months retroactive to the current month. For example, if there is a delayed eligibility determination and the begin date is more than 6 months in the past, the buy-in start date would be limited to 6 months ago. Manual requests allow for buy-in to cover the period earlier than 6 months ago. MMIS User Services can key these requests.

28 Situation #4 Trisha Trisha is 39 years old and receives RSDI of $1000.00 per month for disability starting 11/1/06. She has Medicare Part A that began 11/1/08 and she refused Medicare Part B when it was offered in 11/1/08. She came in today to apply for Health Care programs and is eligible for MA with a Spenddown effective 9/1/09. She has opted not to apply her Medicare premium to her Spenddown. Should this recipient Buy-in for Part A? No Yes If yes what date? __________ Should this recipient Buy-in for Part B? No Yes If yes what date? __________

29 Answer: Situation #4 Trisha Trisha is 39 years old and receives RSDI of $1000.00 per month for disability starting 11/1/06. She has Medicare Part A that began 11/1/08 and she refused Medicare Part B when it was offered in 11/1/08. She came in today to apply for Health Care programs and is eligible for MA with a Spenddown effective 9/1/09. She has opted not to apply her Medicare premium to her Spenddown. Should this recipient Buy-in for Part A? No, it is free. Should this recipient Buy-in for Part B? Technically Yes she should buy-in for Part B 9/1/09, however there are no Part B begin dates on RMCR so she will not be picked up on the buy-in until there are dates. This panel interfaces from the STAT MEDI panel.

30 Situation #5 Joe Joe is 32 and receives RSDI in the amount of $420.00 that began 9/1/07 and SSI in the amount of $274.00 that began 8/1/07 for disability. He is Medicare eligible beginning 9/1/09. He applied for Health Care programs on 10/1/09. He is eligible for MA 10/1/09 as he did not request retroactive coverage. Should this recipient Buy-in for Part A? No Yes If yes what date? __________ Should this recipient Buy-in for Part B? No Yes If yes what date? __________

31 Answer: Situation #5 Joe Joe is 32 and receives RSDI in the amount of $420.00 that began 9/1/07 and SSI in the amount of $274.00 that began 8/1/07 for disability. He is Medicare eligible beginning 9/1/09. He applied for Health Care programs on 10/1/09. He is eligible for MA 10/1/09 as he did not request retroactive coverage. Should this recipient Buy-in for Part A? No, it is free. Should this recipient Buy-in for Part B? Yes 10/01/09 if picked up by the Categorical Buy-in due to the receipt of SSI with MA. 09/01/09 if opened on a MSP in MAXIS and coded on RELG in MMIS.

32 Determining Part A Delete Date Medicare end date is populated on RMCR or Program eligibility has ended on RELG or Entitle/Non-entitle code of E for Part A received The delete date will be the eligibility or Medicare end date or the end of the previous month in the case of the E coding.

33 Determining Part B Delete Date Medicare end date is populated on RMCR or Program eligibility has ended on RELG or Categorical eligibility has ended on RELG or RMSC (elig type, M Indicator, SSI, MSA/GRH) The delete date will be the eligibility/Medicare end date, or the end of last month.

34 Accrete/Delete Request Dates RBUY and RBYB each have accrete and delete request date fields to indicate whether Accrete/Delete has determined a change in buy-in status or whether a manual request has been keyed: NEXT: RBYB 06/19/08 08:31:37 MMIS RECIP BUYIN-RBUY WMW1740 06/15/06 PWMW133 00000000 03/08/1937 * SMITH SAM R * MEDICARE ID: 123456789A ********************************** ENTITLE/NON-ENTITLE: Y PART (A) ACCRETE REQUEST DATE: 06/01/08 ACCRETE DATE: PART (A) DELETE REQUEST DATE: DELETE DATE:

36 Basics of Buy-In TXN Codes The MMIS User Manual has a complete list of Buy-In related transactions and Worker Messages, along with guidelines for worker action

37 Basics of Buy-In TXN Codes Accrete/Delete transaction codes The txn codes we send to CMS do not appear on RBUY/RBYB but are useful to know in relation to the response codes 51 =delete request 53 =delete request due to death 61 = accrete request 75 = simultaneous accrete/delete request 99 =informational

38 Basics of Buy-In TXN Codes When an accrete/delete transaction is accepted by CMS we will get these response codes 1161 = CMS accepted an accrete request 1751 = CMS accepted a delete request 1753 = CMS accepted a delete request due to DOD When an accrete/delete transaction is rejected by CMS we will get these response codes: 2051, 2053 = CMS rejects deletion request 2161, 2175 = CMS rejects an accretion request

39 Basics of Buy-In TXN Codes CMS-initiated transactions: 41 = ongoing buy-in 14, 15 = CMS reports Medicare entitlement ended 16 = CMS reports a DOD 1728 = CMS reports potential residence outside of Minnesota 44 = Subsidy for Medicare Part B premium was received by CMS 45 = Subsidy for Medicare Part B premium has ended

40 Navigating the Buy-In Higher Priority Worker Messages

41 Buy-In Worker Messages BUY-IN ACCRETION REJECTED FOR PART (A or B). REASON CODE (A, B, C, D, or E). REVIEW Txn Code: 2161 Definition: Accrete request was rejected due to MMIS/CMS discrepancies MMIS: creates buy-in occur span with attempted accrete date and removes Accrete Request Date Action: depends on reason code Why Important: If enrollee is only Medicare eligible based on premium payment, enrollment in Medicare A and B is delayed until rejection is resolved.

42 Buy-In Worker Messages A: No match to Medicare ID# on the Electronic Data Base (EDB). Check BENDEX or send new TPQY. B: Name, DOB, or sex code discrepancy between MMIS and EDB. Verify accuracy and update MAXIS/MMIS accordingly. C for Pt A: Part A is free, or person does not have Part A. Verify Part A dates, and update MAXIS/MMIS accordingly. C for Pt B: Accrete request is based on QM or SL and EDB shows no Part A coverage. Confirm Pt A eligibility (BENDEX, TPQY). If recipient is not eligible, close QM or SL.

43 Buy-In Worker Messages D for Pt A: no record of Pt B buy-in, which is required before Pt A accretion. D for Pt B: accrete attempt is based on QWD, and QWD does not pay for Part B. E: no Medicare entitlement. If recipient appears entitled to Medicare, refer to SSA. For all these worker messages: If data in MMIS has been verified as correct, contact MMIS User Services. TIP: check the Entitlement/Non-Entitlement code on RBUY and RBYB when this worker message is received.

45 Buy-In Worker Messages BUY-IN TERMINATED DUE TO DEATH. VERIFY DATE OF DEATH Txn: 16 A/B Definition: CMS deleted recipient from buy-in due to death MMIS: adds delete date on RBUY/RBYB and ends RMCR span Action: verify recipients status. If death is incorrect refer client to SSA to correct and reopen Medicare. If deceased, add DOD and close case.

46 Buy-In Worker Messages NEW MEDICARE CLAIM NBR REPORTED ON BUY- IN FILE Txn: 23xx Definition: Medicare number changed. MMIS: new claim number added to MMIS, prior number moves to RIDS Action: update claim number in MAXIS

47 Buy-In Worker Messages SSA REPORTS NON MN ADDRESS. VRFY/UPDATE CLIENT ADDRESS Txn: 1728 Definition: CMS deleted from buy-in because another state has requested accretion or SSI records indicate residence in another state. MMIS: delete date added to RBUY/RBYB Action: verify client address. If still a Minnesota resident, refer to SSA. If not, close case.

48 Buy-In Worker Messages CMS REPORTS SSI BEGIN. MMIS UPDATED. Txn: 86 Total txn: 590 (March) Definition: Medicare beneficiary became SSI eligible (with potential buy-in eligibility). Txn may also include Part A entitlement date MMIS: SSI start date added to RMSC, and Medicare start date if included. May trigger a categorical accretion if other factors met. Action: verify SSI amount for effect on other programs

49 Buy-In Worker Messages CMS REPORTS SSI ENDED. RMSC UPDATED Txn: 87 Total txn: 443 (March) Definition: SSI eligibility ended (can also end buy-in unless meets another basis for buy-in) MMIS: deletes SSI Start Date if currently populated ACTION: Verify status of SSI payments for other programs use. This may also indicate a temporary ending of SSI payments.

50 Buy-In Worker Messages SSA REPORTS RECIPIENT NO LONGER ELIGIBLE FOR MEDICARE Txn: 15 Definition: deleted from buy-in because Medicare ended MMIS: delete date added to RBUY/RBYB and Medicare end date added on RMCR Action: review client record, particularly entitlement coding. If Medicare eligibility appears to exist, refer client to SSA. Re-open Medicare if eligibility is re- established.

51 How to Properly End a MEDI Span When a 15 txn is received from CMS, STAT/MEDI needs to be updated. However, its not as simple as just adding an end date if Medicare dates were previously verified in MAXIS…

57 Navigating the Buy-In SSI recipient turning 65 scenario
