4 Module 6: Objectives After completing this module, you should be able to: Review the structure and purpose of Texas Medicaid Explain the purpose, goals, and eligible populations of special Medicaid programs for families Explain the purpose, goals, and eligible populations of special Medicaid programs for children Explain the purpose, goals, and eligible populations of special Medicaid programs for women Describe the anticipated impact of the Affordable Care Act (health care reform) on women’s health care Find Medicaid resources to support patients and providers 4 Module 6

5 Medicaid serves primarily low-income families, non- disabled children, related caretakers of dependent children, pregnant women, the elderly, and people with disabilities. Texas chooses to extend Medicaid eligibility to pregnant women and infants up to 185% of the federal poverty level (FPL) as well as to the “medically needy,” including children and women whose income exceeds Medicaid eligibility limits, but who do not have the resources required to meet their medical expenses. This module addresses special Medicaid programs for: Families Children Women Caring for Families Beyond Texas Health Steps 5 Module 6

6 True or False? Test Your Knowledge about Special Medicaid Programs for Families, Children & Women Case Management assists families with resources such as educational, financial, or housing needs. ECI provides services to families of medically fragile children who keep their children at home instead of placing them in nursing facilities. The Children with Special Health Care Needs program helps people of any age with cystic fibrosis. One goal of a Caries Risk Assessment is to Identify the oral health status of the child and other family members. The Nurse-Family Partnership provides post-natal home visits until the child is 1 year old. 6 Module 6

7 What is Medicaid? 7 Medicaid is a federal health care program that is jointly funded by federal and state money. Medicaid is jointly funded by the state and federal governments: About one-third funded by the State of Texas About two-thirds funded by the Federal Government In December 2011, about 1 in 7 Texans relied on Medicaid for health insurance or long-term services (3.7 million of the 25.9 million). Medicaid was created through Title XIX of the 1965 Social Security Act, and established in Texas in In Texas, Medicaid is administered by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC). Medicaid is an entitlement program, which means: The number of eligible people who can enroll cannot be limited. Any services covered under the program must be paid. Module 6

11 Common Medicaid Myths Medicaid is designed with minimum federal standards, which require states to cover certain populations and provide certain benefits to key populations. In many ways, Medicaid is a system that operates as 50 separate state coverage programs, with states having the choice to cover populations and services beyond minimum standards. The Youth Empowerment Services (YES) and Medically Dependent Children Program (MDCP) are both examples of Medicaid waiver programs that allow coverage flexibility.
