4 Focus of Quarter 1 Reporting: Number Trained, Issues and Lessons Learned 4

5 Expectations O/E QPR is required for all heath centers that received the O/E supplemental funding (regardless of progress made with O/E activities during the reporting period) –Failure to submit the O/E QPR will result in the entire H80 grant being placed on draw restriction HRSA does not expect health center O/E assistance workers to make significant efforts (e.g., follow-up calls) to determine whether an assisted individual has enrolled. The narrative section of the report provides the opportunity to describe issues that have created barriers to or have facilitated O/E activities. 5

6 Expectations HRSA does not require health center O/E assistance workers to track assistance by name or any other personal identifier. Duplicate reporting (e.g., counting assistance with the same individual on different days) is appropriate. –If health center O/E assistance workers want to record information in order to facilitate follow-up with an individual assisted who plans to return, they should follow the health center’s policies and procedures for protecting personally identifiable information and any guidelines provided in the training process or required by law. 6

7 How the Marketplace Works 7

The health center should report: –3 assists (to represent all family members assisted in the session) –3 application submissions (to represent all family members included in the application) –3 estimated enrollments (to represent all newly covered family members) 25

26 Scenarios—Medicaid-Only Enrollment Assistance Prior to October 1, 2013, an individual is assisted to submit a Medicaid application by a health center staff person that has been trained to facilitate Medicaid enrollment, but has not yet completed all required federal and/or state training for assisting with enrollment through the Marketplace. Individuals who have assisted with Medicaid/CHIP eligibility and enrollment can continue to do so and report accordingly. These individuals should NOT be included in the total number O/E assistance workers trained. The health center should report: 1 assist 1 application submission 26
