Section 2703 of the Affordable Care Act allows states to amend their Medicaid state plans to provide Health Home Services for enrollees with qualifying chronic conditions. States are eligible for an enhanced federal match for eight quarters Missouri received approval from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for two State Plan Amendments to be able to provide Health Home Services to Missourians who are Medicaid eligible participants with chronic illnesses. Enhanced Federal Match requires 10% State Match to receive 90% Federal Match ($1 of state money leverages $9 of federal money) Missouri will have three types of health homes: Primary Care Health Home for individuals with chronic disease: CMS Approval Effective Date 1/1/12 Community Mental Health Center Health Home for individuals with serious and persistent mental illness: CMS approval Effective date Multi-payer Health Home for the entire population of Anthem covered lives in the 84 county MFH Region

Qualifying Patient Conditions: Serious and persistent mental illness Two qualifying chronic conditions One qualifying chronic condition and at risk for a second qualifying chronic condition State Defined Conditions Qualifying patient conditions and criteria were outlined in Section 2703 of the ACA. States had the option to propose additional conditions: Missouri received approval for developmental disabilities to be an additional qualifying condition.

8 Partners in Planning Department of Social Services (DSS)
Department of Mental Health (DMH) MO Foundation for Health (MFH) MO Primary Care Association (PCA) MO Coalition of Community Mental Health Centers (CMHCs) Consultants: Michael Bailit & Alicia Smith Missouri Hospital Association (MHA) Missouri School Board Association (MSBA) The planning process for Missouri’s Health Home model has included stakeholders and has been a collaborative effort between the agencies and organizations listed

9 Goals of the Primary Care Health Home Initiative
Reduce inpatient hospitalization, readmissions and inappropriate Emergency Room visits Improve coordination and transitions of care Implement and evaluate the Health Home model as a way to achieve accessible, high quality primary health care and behavioral health care; Demonstrate cost-effectiveness in order to justify and support the sustainability and spread of the model; and Support primary care and behavioral care practice sites by increasing available resources and improving care coordination to result in improved quality of clinician work life and patient outcomes. These goals are the overarching goals of the Missouri Primary Care Health Home State Plan Amendment

10 Use of Health Information Technology to Link Services
CyberAccess Direct Inform (Patient portal) MO HealthNet (“MHN”) maintains a web-based electronic health record (EHR) accessible to enrolled Medicaid providers, including primary care practices, CMHCs, pharmacies and schools. A module of the CyberAccess allows enrollees to look up their own healthcare utilization and receive the same content in laypersons’ terms. The information facilitates self-management and monitoring necessary for an enrollee to attain the highest levels of health and functioning.

11 Data Management and Analytics
Clinical Information via MPCA data warehouse Hospital and ER utilization from claims Notification of Hospital Admit from MHN concurrent authorization system Care Coordination via CyberAccess Medication Adherence reports The Data Management, Analytics, and reporting will be covered in more detail on a series of webinars that will be hosted by MHN.

12 Health Home Services Comprehensive care management Care coordination
