1 Key Findings from the Family Care Implementation and Outcomes Study Lisa Alecxih February 13, 2004

2 1 Implementation Report Methods u Site visits to counties with both a CMO and a RC  Fond du Lac, La Crosse, Milwaukee, Portage, and Richland  Once annually from 2000 to 2002 u Telephone communication with DHFS staff u Documentation and data provided by DHFS and CMOs  Provider networks  Enrollment  Contracts  Quality review reports u Provider telephone interviews

3 2 Cost & Outcomes Methods u Data  Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS)  Human Services Reporting System (HSRS) Long-term Support (LTS) Module  Nursing Facility Minimum Data Set (MDS)  Long-term Care (LTC) Functional Screen  Community Options Program (COP) and DD Functional Screens  Member Outcome Tool u 10/1999-3/2000 (pre); 1/2001-6/2001 (post)  Timeframe dictated by claim lag u Comparison – remainder of state and matched counties

4 3 Major Implementation Achievements Access u Established nine Resource Centers (RC) u Use single web-based functional screen for all three target groups u Eliminated wait lists in CMO counties Cost u Introduced procedures for institutional diversion u Created five Care Management Organizations (CMO) Quality u Instituted interdisciplinary care management teams u Increased consumer involvement u Developed innovative quality assurance & improvement system

5 4 Increased CMO Enrollment

6 5 Elimination of Wait Lists Note: The non-CMO counties include individuals under age 60, while the scale for Milwaukee only includes individuals age 60 and over. The estimates for non-CMO counties and the CMO counties other than Milwaukee prior to the elimination of the wait list include children with physical disabilities or developmental disabilities. Source:The Lewin Group calculations based on DHFS provided wait list data.

7 6 Resource Centers u Provide a single source for:  easy access to information, referral, and options counseling  access to publicly funded programs for the target populations u Met the challenge of developing/enhancing local information and referral resources u Actively and creatively conducted outreach campaigns u In most cases, met or exceeded target population contacts per eligible standards (8.0 per 1,000)  Elderly – all met, up to 22 per 1,000  Physical Disabilities – all met, 27 to 230 per 1,000  Developmental Disabilities – all but two met (Kenosha and Marathon), up to 36 per 1,000

8 7 Care Management Organizations u Built upon existing county LTC functions of service brokerage and contracting u Adopted interdisciplinary care management teams that  consider acute and primary care needs, in addition to chronic care  strive to balance consumer preference and cost u Built provider networks u Managed services within the capitated rates u Began to consider a prevention focus

9 8 New CMO Enrollees Average 40% Less Spending

10 9 Increased Consumer Involvement u Advisory roles on boards and committees u CMOs established self-directed supports options u Member-centered support planning  shift from providing services to clients to being responsive to customers u Consumer-defined outcomes

11 10 Issues Encountered u Federal approval and requirements u Failure to initially involve staff of Economic Support units u Disparate information technology systems at the county and state level u CMO struggles to hire ahead of member enrollment u Loss of the independent advocates in Fall 2001 u Freezes on non-Medical Assistance CMO enrollment

12 11 Preliminary Outcomes u Substantially met the goals of:  increasing choice and access  improving quality through a focus on social outcomes u No decline in service levels for existing enrollees u Too early to draw long-term cost-effectiveness conclusions
