1 Illinois: care coordination and healthcare reform
Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services August 2014

2 Medicaid Reform Law The Medicaid reform law [PA ], requires that by January 1, 2015, at least 50 percent of the individuals covered under Medicaid be enrolled in a care coordination program that organize care around their medical needs.

3 Care coordination is the centerpiece of Illinois’ Medicaid reform. It’s aligned with Illinois’ Medicaid reform law and the federal Affordable Care Act

4 What HFS is doing to implement care coordination
Initially focus on the most complex, expensive clients Take an ‘integrated’ approach to care Bringing together local primary care providers (PCPs), specialists, hospitals, nursing homes, behavioral health and other providers to organize care around a patient’s needs. Measure quality and health outcomes Continue to work closely with stakeholders and sister agencies on the most effective way to bring this new healthcare delivery system to Illinois

5 What EXISTS NOW Current HFS Managed Care Programs

6 Current Programs – Primary Care Case Management (PCCM)
Called Illinois Health Connect (IHC) Became fully operational in November 2007 A mandatory program; eligible enrollees may opt out of IHC if enrolling in a managed care plan Operates statewide for most individuals covered by an HFS Medicaid Program 1.7 million IHC clients have a medical home through a PCP. The PCP makes referrals to specialists for additional care or tests as needed * PCCM is NOT an MCO. It is a FFS model that includes care coordination

7 Current Programs – Integrated Care Program (ICP)
HFS implemented the first Integrated Care Program (ICP) on May 1, 2011 For seniors and persons with disabilities (SPD) who have Medicaid, but not Medicare (cannot be a ‘dual’) Mandatory program for SPD 19 and over Enrollment occurs through client enrollment broker Individuals have at least two plans to choose from

9 ICP Managed Care Organizations (MCOs)
HFS contracts with several health plans to serve the ICP population. Different regions are served by different health plans 1. Aetna Better Health 2. IlliniCare Health Plan (Centene) 3. Meridian Health Plan of Illinois 4. Molina Healthcare 5. Health Alliance Medical Plan 6. Blue Cross Blue Shield 7. Cigna-HealthSpring 8. Humana Health Plan Managed Care Community Networks (MCCNs) 1. Community Care Alliance of Illinois (CCAI) 2. County Care

10 ICP –MCOs and MCCNs How are MCOs and MCCNs different?
MCOs are licensed Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs) by the Dept of Insurance MCCNs are provider‐owned and governed entities that operate like MCOs, but are certified by HFS rather than Dept of Insurance How are MCOs and MCCNs the same? MCOs and MCCNs both operate on a full‐risk capitated basis HFS eligibility systems look identical for both MCOs and MCCNs To the member, the enrollment process is the same and so is the level of benefits provided

11 ICP Care Coordination Entities (CCEs)
Care Coordination Entities are provider based networks that offer care coordination to clients Clients remain Fee-For-Service HFS contracts with several of CCEs to serve the ICP population. Different regions are served by different CCEs.

12 Current Programs – Medicare Medicaid Alignment Initiative (MMAI)
3-way contract between HFS, Federal CMS, and MCO Impacts those who are dually eligible for full Medicaid & Medicare benefits Clients will have access to all services under one MCO, another step away from fragmented care Includes both community and LTSS clients Individuals are passively enrolled with option to opt out. If they are receiving Long Term Services and Supports (LTSS) however, they are required to select a health plan for those specific services.

13 MMAI – LTSS LTSS : Long Term Services and Supports
Under MMAI, the LTSS population includes nursing home residents and those receiving Home and Community Based Services(HCBS) waivers: Elderly (Community Care Program participants) Traumatic Brain Injury HIV/AIDS Physically Disabled Supportive Living Facility

14 MMAI- flexibility for the Consumer
All services currently received are covered plus care coordination under an integrated health care delivery system. Additionally, all of the MMP health plans offer added benefits at no cost to consumer. Ability to switch health plans under MMAI, though it may be best to stay with one health plan as that health plan’s care coordinator will get to know and understand their needs. To aid in transition to the MMP, Continuity of Care for the first 180 days is available. Existing care plans and providers are covered during this time period with hopes of a more permanent relationship between MMP and provider.
