3 FMS is a new waiver service for the administrative and information & assistance functions for self-directing individuals. Replaces current payroll agent process Kansas has elected to operate FMS as an Agency with Choice (AWC) employer model FMS is only available for services that are self-directed 3

4 Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requirement. Separates administrative functions from direct service payment rates. 4

5 I&A is a service within FMS that is available to provide information, including independent resources, and assistance in the development of options to ensure that individuals understand the responsibilities involved with directing their services. Practical skills training is offered to enable self-directing individuals, their families and/or representative to independently direct and manage waiver services. 5

6 The extent of the assistance furnished to the self-directing individual will be determined by the self-directing individual or individuals representative. I&A services may include the performance of activities that nominally overlap the provision of targeted case management services. However, such overlap does not constitute duplicate provision of services. (Be careful to utilize TCM time only for case management activities.) 6

7 Meet all applicable requirements to be and maintain status as FMS provider. Develop and implement policies that ensure the delivery of FMS services, and subsequent reimbursement, meeting applicable requirements. Develop and maintain all applicable agreements. Provide I&A as requested. 7

8 Choose from qualified and available FMS providers. Participate in the development of all plans including planning, startup, delivery and administration of direct support worker services. Work collaboratively with the FMS provider to meet shared objectives. 8

9 Recruit, hire, train, schedule, and dismiss direct support workers. Inform the FMS provider and Targeted Case Manager of any changes in status within 3 business days. Verify that the time worked by the Direct Support Worker(s) was delivered according to the POC and the ACW. 9

10 Ensure the consumer is aware of the new FMS service. Revise the POC timely and appropriately. Refer to resources such as the self-direct website and the self-direction / KPASS tool kit so consumers can educate themselves about FMS service and providers.http://selfdirect.ks.gov Monitor service provision and POC implementation. 10

11 Choosing an FMS provider for dates of service November 1, 2011, and ongoing shall follow the same process that consumers currently utilize to choose a payroll agency. SRS will maintain lists applicable to each waiver of Medicaid-enrolled FMS agencies who will serve PD and TBI waiver consumers. 11

12 For a self-directed consumer, the POC has to include both FMS and at least one of the self-directed services: Personal Services self-direct and/or Sleep Cycle Support. Revising the POC shall follow the same submission and approval process that any other POC revision to services follows. 12

13 The POC must be signed and dated by the consumer or the consumers representative and in the case file by January 1, For the November 1, 2011, revision, enter a new MMIS POC with a November 1, 2011, start date for all services. (We have asked HP to close all current POCs effective October 31, 2011.) 13

14 The end date shall no longer be the infinity date of For all POCs with a start date of November 1, 2011, the end date will be the last day of the consumers birth month. All annual reassessments shall be completed within the consumers birth month. We assure CMS that every PD and TBI consumer has an annual reassessment. 14

16 Current consumers may transfer from one FMS agency to another, but only effective the first day of a month. There can be only one FMS provider per month on Plans of Care. There is no proration of FMS costs. For initial waiver consumers, FMS shall be placed on the POC effective the initial date of self-direct services. 16

23 Why are we making the change to Financial Management Services? The change has been brought about by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requiring the State to separate administrative costs from direct service costs. Will my consumer have to change his/her attendant care providers? No, the consumer will be able to keep his/her current attendant care providers. Will my consumer have to change to a different payroll agent? Maybe. There may be some current payroll agents that choose not to become a provider of Financial Management Services (FMS). What will the FMS provider do for my consumer? There will be an agreement between the consumer and the FMS provider which will outline both the responsibilities of the FMS provider and the consumer of services. Some of examples are processing time worked, paycheck creation, and filing of taxes, unemployment and liability insurance. Will this change the amount of services that my consumer receives? No. 23

24 What is I & A? Information and Assistance (I&A) is a service that is incorporated into the definition and requirements of the FMS provider. This service is available to provide information, including independent resources, and assist in the development of options to ensure that individuals understand the responsibilities involved with directing their services. A complete detailed definition is available on the Self Direct website at or, if a consumer does not have access to the internet, please share a copy of the document with the consumer. Will my consumer have to pay the FMS provider or how is the FMS provider paid for its work? No. The FMS provider will bill the State directly for the FMS it provides. Can consumers have I & A and Case Management? Who will do what for consumers? Yes, although the services cannot be duplicative. FMS providers have specific I & A responsibilities which are different than the responsibilities of case managers. Who should my consumer contact if he/she has questions? As a Case Manager, you were required to attend training on this change of service. You should be your consumers primary contact for information.
