5 What Is Medicaid?Medicaid is a federal and state funded program, enacted in 1965 under Title XIX of the Social Security Act, which pays for the medical care of people who meet specific categorical nonfinancial, income, and resource requirements.Medicaid is an entitlement program, which means that any person who meets his or her state’s Medicaid eligibility criteria has a federal right to Medicaid coverage in that state.The state cannot limit enrollment in the program or establish a waiting list.
6 Who Pays for Medicaid?The federal government matches state spending on Medicaid.Federal law outlines minimum requirements that all states’ Medicaid programs must fulfill.However, states have broad authority to define eligibility, benefits, provider payments, and other aspects of their programs.
7 Mandatory GroupsFederal law requires that states cover certain “mandatory” groups of people who meet the state’s eligibility requirements to receive any federal matching funds.HP Confidential25 March 2017
8 Mandatory Benefits Physician services Hospital services (inpatient and outpatient)Laboratory and X-ray servicesEarly and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis, and Treatment (EPSDT) services for individuals younger than 21 years oldFederally qualified health center (FQHC) and rural health clinic (RHC) servicesFamily planning services and suppliesPediatric and family nurse practitioner servicesNurse midwife servicesNursing facility services for individuals 21 years old and olderHome health care for individuals eligible for nursing facility servicesNecessary transportation services

10 Indiana Medicaid Indiana Health Coverage Programs In the state of Indiana, Medicaid services are offered to eligible Indiana residents through the IHCP.The IHCP is administered by the Office of Medicaid Policy and Planning (OMPP), which is under the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA).The IHCP covers all the mandatory services and most of the optional services established by the federal government.

12 IHCP Payment Delivery System Providers are reimbursed for services rendered to members enrolled in IHCP based on the program in which the member is enrolled.The IHCP reimburses enrolled providers using the following three payment delivery systems:Fee-for-service (FFS)Care SelectRisk-based managed care (RBMC)
13 IHCP Payment Delivery System Fee for ServiceThe FFS delivery system reimburses providers on a per-service basis.Providers bill services rendered to IHCP members directly to Hewlett-Packard (HP), the IHCP fiscal agent.
14 IHCP Payment Delivery System Care SelectCare Select is similar to Traditional Medicaid in that payments for care are made on an FFS basis.In addition, a per-member, per-month administration fee is paid to primary medical providers (PMPs).Care Select operates as an FFS delivery system with a gatekeeper approach.Claims are submitted to HP for processing.
15 IHCP Payment Delivery System Risk-based Managed CareIn the RBMC delivery system, the State pays each managed care entity (MCE) a monthly capitation fee based on the member’s category of service.This capitation fee covers the costs of care for most of the covered services incurred by Hoosier Healthwise members enrolled in the MCE network.Claims are processed and paid by the MCE in which the member is enrolled.Exception: Claims for carved-out services, including but not limited to pharmacy and dental services, are processed by HP and paid on an FFS basis.Providers should contact the MCE for specific claim payment and prior authorization (PA) policies and guidelines.

33 Traditional MedicaidIHCP members enrolled in Traditional Medicaid are not assigned a PMP and do not need to enroll in any MCE to receive health-related servicesServices rendered to members enrolled in Traditional Medicaid are paid on an FFS basis
34 Traditional Medicaid Spend-down Spend-down is a provision that allows a person whose income is more than the standard to receive assistance with medical bills under Medicaid.Spend-down works like an insurance deductible. Once the monthly spend-down amount is satisfied, Medicaid will pay for all other covered services for that month.The spend-down amount is determined by the DFR and is based on the member’s income and medical expenses.The member must pay the spend-down amount deducted from claims directly to the provider.
35 Traditional Medicaid Dually Eligible for Medicare and Medicaid Dually eligible members are individuals who are entitled to Medicare Part A and/or Part B and are eligible for Medicaid benefits.A Medicare beneficiary who is aged, blind, or disabled according to Medicaid’s standards and who meets the Medicaid income and resource eligibility rules can qualify for Traditional Medicaid.

39 Traditional Medicaid Long Term Care Long-term care (LTC) services are available to IHCP members who meet the threshold of nursing care needs required for admission to or continued stay in an IHCP-certified nursing facility.The goal of the LTC program is to provide services in a setting other than an acute care wing of a hospital, enabling individuals whose functional capacities are chronically impaired to be maintained at their maximum level of health and well-being.
40 Traditional MedicaidLong Term Care – Patient LiabilityPatient liability is the monetary amount that a Medicaid resident must contribute toward his or her monthly care in a facility.The amount of patient liability is determined by the local county office of the DFR.The patient liability is deducted from LTC claims.
41 Traditional Medicaid Hospice The Hospice program provides services to IHCP members who are terminally ill.Hospice requires level of care (LOC) determination and a diagnosis of a terminal illness.A hospice provider must be Medicare- certified as a hospice provider prior to enrollment in the IHCP as a Medicaid provider.
42 Traditional Medicaid Waiver Programs Medicaid also offers additional nonmedical home and community- based services under waiver programs.Waivers are designed as an alternative to institutionalization.To qualify for waiver services, a person must first meet the LOC to receive services in an institution (hospital, nursing home, or ICF/MR) but choose to receive services in the community.
43 Traditional Medicaid Package E: Emergency Services Only Package E provides coverage of serious medical emergencies for undocumented immigrants and certain visitors to the United States who meet all other categorical and financial requirements.These members are only eligible for the following:Labor and delivery until the mother is stableMedical emergenciesA maximum of four-days supply of pharmacy servicesNonemergency services may be billed to the member if a signed waiver was obtained prior to rendering services
45 Care SelectCare Select is similar to Traditional Medicaid in that payments for care are made on an FFS basis.However, members are assigned to a PMP.An additional per-member, per- month administration fee is paid to PMPs.
46 Care SelectAs of October 1, 2010, Care Select changed from a care management program that covered an extensive group of aid categories to a disease management program with a focus on members with certain chronic conditionsTo participate in Care Select, members must meet the aid category criteria and have at least one of the health conditions covered by the program.Members can opt out of Care Select at any time and enroll in Traditional Medicaid instead.

55 Hoosier Healthwise Children’s Health Insurance Program CHIP, the State’s program created under Title XXI of the Social Security Act, provides health care coverage for children from birth through 18 years old using a buy-in option.Under CHIP, also known as Package C, the income limit is 250 percent of the federal poverty guidelines.Coverage is provided only to children who are ineligible for all other categories of the Hoosier Healthwise Program.
56 Hoosier HealthwiseChildren’s Health Insurance Program – Cost-sharing RequirementsUnlike the other Hoosier Healthwise programs, CHIP has cost- sharing requirements.A child determined eligible for Package C is made conditionally eligible pending a premium payment.The child’s family must pay a monthly premium.Only after the premium is paid is actual eligibility information transferred to IndianaAIM.Enrollment continues as long as premium payments are received and the child continues to meet all eligibility requirements.Enrollment is terminated for nonpayment of premiums after a 60-day grace period.
