13 The Recognition Process  The law calls for a process to recognize Pediatric ACOs and new approaches to coordinating care.  Those seeking to be recognized in Ohio as Pediatric ACOs will have to explain how they will be accountable for care; how they will share data, and how they will collaborate with MCPs and community based organizations such as schools and social services.  They will also be required to have collaborative agreements with agreements with Primary Care Medical Homes, Pediatric Specialists, Community Pharmacies, Dentists, and CBHCs.  They must explain what region of the State they will be covering.  Finally, they must demonstrate they have performance measures in place, and that they are tracking those measures; certain types of pediatric ACOs will be required to agree to the State’s performance measures. 13 DRAFT

14 Governance of Pediatric ACOs  All Pediatric ACOs in Ohio will be not-for-profit  If the Pediatric ACO is made up of independent entities, then they will have a 9 member governing team that will include majority physicians  The governing team will also include an Advanced Practice Nurse, a Child Consumer Advocate, and a Parent Advocate  Executive will be chosen by the governing team and medical director will be chosen by the Executive  The Governing team will be responsible for partnering with community stakeholders such as schools, children services agencies, businesses, and other payers such as insurance companies and hospitals 14 DRAFT

15 Flexibility in Governance  If the governing team can not meet certain requirements, the Pediatric ACO must communicate to the State why it seeks to differ from these requirements, and how it will involve Pediatric ACO families and community stakeholders in Pediatric ACO governance.  If the Pediatric ACO is an existing organization, then the governing body can be the same as it is currently, as long as the governing team can explain how it will involve Pediatric ACO families and community stakeholders in Pediatric ACO governance. 15 DRAFT

17 Pediatric ACO Models  Type 1 Model: Includes a demonstrated shared savings model and performance measures within a contractual arrangement between a Medicaid managed care plan and a Pediatric ACO who has been recognized by the State of Ohio.  The practitioners involved with a Pediatric ACO under this type must acknowledge in writing that they are accountable for the care they provide.  Type 2 Model: Includes requirements of Type 1. The State will now set and track the performance measures. The care coordination and case management requirements will be delegated to the Pediatric ACO. Other administrative functions will remain with the managed care plan. Encounter data will be required.  The payment methodology must include shared savings and shared risk with the Medicaid program.  Type 3 Model: A qualified Medicaid provider with direct payer- provider relationship with the State Medicaid agency. The full responsibility for care will be assigned to the Pediatric ACO for a specific region for those not in Medicaid managed care.  The payment methodology must include shared savings and shared risk with the Medicaid program. 17 DRAFT
