Key Elements of ACA for Youth Medicaid expansion Health insurance exchanges Subsidies and cost sharing Dependent coverage Essential health benefits Preventive services
The ACA and Preventive Services Provided by plans without cost sharing From US Preventive Services Task Force, Institute of Medicine, Bright Future, and CDC Immunizations Recommendations (children and adolescents) Services must be administered by a provider within the healthcare network
Screening Services for Women Anemia Breast Cancer Cervical Cancer Chlamydia Contraception Domestic Violence STI Well-woman visits
The ACA and Medical Homes Optional Medicaid State Plan benefit for states to establish Health Homes to coordinate care for people with Medicaid who have chronic conditions. Health Homes providers will integrate and coordinate all primary, acute, behavioral health, and long-term services and supports to treat the “whole person.”
Who is eligible for a Medical Home? Health Homes are for people with Medicaid who: Have 2 or more chronic conditions Have one chronic condition and are at risk for a second Have one serious and persistent mental health condition States can target health home services geographically States can not exclude people with both Medicaid and Medicare from health home services
Who is eligible for a Medical Home? Chronic conditions listed in the statute include: * mental health, * substance abuse, * asthma, * diabetes, * heart disease, and * being overweight. Additional chronic conditions, such as HIV/AIDS, may be considered by CMS for approval.

Reported Medical Home Outcomes Millbank Report Studies on Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) released between August 2012 and December 2013 20 studies – 13 from peer-reviewed literature and 7 industry reports
Current Status: Medical Homes 54% adolescents ages 10-17 Medical home rates for Black (42%) and Hispanic (33%) adolescents lower than White adolescents (64%), as well as adolescents from non- English-speaking households (22%) vs. English-Speaking households (58%) Medical home rates higher for insured (57%) adolescents than uninsured (28%) Adams et al 2013
Current Status: Medical Homes Medical home attainment lower for those with only a mental health condition (46%) & those with both mental and physical conditions (35%), when compared with those who had a physical condition only (56%) Adams et al 2013
Medical Home Examples: Military Health System Patient-Centered Medical Home Initiative National Initiative 4% fewer inpatient admissions 18% more inpatient days 7% fewer ED visits 13% reduction in pharmacy costs 16% reduction in ancillary health costs Millbank Report
Medical Home Examples: University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Health Plan Medical Home Pilot 5% fewer ED visits 6% increase in inpatient admissions 13% fewer readmissions 160% return on investment for Primary Care Medical Homes Millbank Report
Key Aspects of Age-Appropriate Care No wrong door SB 138: Confidentiality Recommended Preventive Screening, incorporating Clinical Evidence-Based Guidelines
No Wrong Door Electronic Health Care Records Coordination of Care Co-location of Services Eligibility Screening
California SB 138 * Loopholes in Explanation of Benefits (EOBs) letters allow for breaches in patient confidentiality according to existing federal regulations * Senate Bill 138 – Effect January, 2015 Requires health plans to honor confidential communications requests; Health plans will be able to communicate directly with the patient about having provided sensitive services; Sensitive services include: birth control, STI tests, mental health care, or any other service if disclosure of information to policy holder could lead to harm.
