2 Tennessee Managed Care 2

3 Overview of CHOICES 3 TNPEC

4 Guiding principles for CHOICES Focus on the whole person – coordination across medical, behavioral, and long-term services and support (LTSS) continuum Promote independence, choice, dignity and quality of life Reduce fragmentation – offer a seamless approach to needs, including a one-stop shop for LTSS information and assistance 4

5 CHOICES benefits Improves (and simplifies) access to the LTSS system Increases options (choices) for members Offers efficient utilization of limited resources Improves quality of care Provides the right care in the right place at the right time. 5

6 CHOICES member groups Group 1 – Members who are receiving Medicaid-reimbursed LTSS in a nursing facility who meet nursing facility level of care (LOC). Group 2 – Members who are receiving Medicaid-reimbursed home- and community-based services (HCBS) as an alternative to nursing facility care who meet nursing facility LOC. Group 3 – Members in the community who are receiving Medicaid-reimbursed HCBS to prevent or delay the need for nursing facility care who meet at-risk LOC (effective July 1, 2012). 6

7 CHOICES member eligibility In order to be enrolled in CHOICES, a member must: Qualify for Medicaid Require nursing facility LOC or be at risk for nursing facility care Need LTSS Actually be receiving LTSS* * Satisfaction of the eligibility criteria for CHOICES is not sufficient for enrollment. 7

20 Discussion topics 20

21 Billing for CLS services CLS will not be billed through the electronic verification system. Agencies must submit electronic claims on the UB-04 form using a clearinghouse. Managed Care Organizations (MCOs) will have a provider representative assigned to your company to help with this process and answer questions. Billing frequency would depend on the service in place and the structure of the service. 23

22 Program requirements for CLS services MCOs are working to develop requirements that will align with the provider’s current processes. Will address key documentation and quality standards. Will be developed collaboratively among the MCOs to ensure consistency and ease for the providers. 22

23 Does the Personal Support Services Agency license cover CLS services? No. You will need to be licensed as a: Mental Retardation Semi-Independent Living Services licensed provider by DIDDS for: CLS1 CLS2 CLS-FM1 CLS-FM2 Mental retardation supported living and/or residential habilitation facility provider by DIDDS for: CLS3 CLS-FM3 23

24 What type of quality assurance will be in place? Critical incident reporting Monthly contacts with care coordinators by phone or face to face Provider advocate annual HCBS audits 24

25 Who develops the plan of care? In CHOICES, the plan of care (POC) is a very similar document to the individual support plan (ISP), including: Relevant information regarding the members’ services Natural supports Back-up plans Disaster planning A summary of the individual’s physical, social and emotional needs Any self-directed care the member qualifies for Each MCO has a different format but all POCs contain the same information. The CHOICES care coordinator is responsible for developing the POC. 25

26 How will medications be administered? CHOICES members will be allowed to use self-direction for medication administration if determined appropriate. A verbal order will be obtained from the member’s PCP and included on the POC allowing a paid worker to assist in this health care task. This is limited to the administration of oral, topical and inhaled medications. 26

27 Will the person’s MCO for medical services be the only choice he or she has for the CLS service? Each MCO has the right to administer a single case agreement with individual providers. We strongly encourage participation with all MCOs to ensure continuity of care. 27

28 Have MCOs started contracting with DIDDS providers? What is the process? Yes, we all have. The process is similar for each MCO. When a member is identified to move into a CLS housing, a single case agreement will be completed. We will be moving to global contracts some time in

29 Who to contact at each MCO? Each MCO has a different point of contact. We encourage you to reach out to your provider representative if you already have one. We also encourage you to meet with representatives that are present from each MCO here today to exchange information on how to reach out to them. 29

30 Time frame from identification of a member until move-in day? This can range from seven to 45 days. Each case is different and specific to the member. Specific items that may impact this time frame are: A member’s physical status and need for additional care to resolve acute conditions Need for a home modification Need for member & care coordinator to obtain needed household items for community living 30
