4 Person-Centered Planning Regulatory Requirements Required planning process for adults receiving developmental services in Maine.Meets regulatory requirements, addresses resource allocation, communicates changes, and ensures consistency and accountability.Involves identifying and describing needs, goals and support services for person to live meaningful and self-directed life.Individual and their families direct the person-centered planning process.Goals are person-focused and personally defined.See Statue 34 B§5470-B. Personal planning1. Right to personal planning. Every adult with an intellectual disability or autism who is eligible for services must be provided the opportunity to engage in a personal planning process in which the needs and desires of the person are articulated and identified.MaineCare Section 21 & 29 also require a planning process in order to be given authorization to bill for providing services– Waiver applications are in the process of a rewrite- includes information on components of the plan and what the plan needs to containSection 13 Targeted Case Management also refers to required planning
5 Who is the PCP Process For? The PCP process must be used for all …WAIVER Section 21 and Section 29 members and people on those wait lists.ADW members receiving DS case management.Non-waiver people who only receive DS case management.Limited Benefits or Non-MaineCare people who only receive DS case management (state cm only.)Adults with ID/MH receiving Mental Health or Children’s case management and getting Section 21/29 Waiver.ADW = Adults with Disabilities Waiver
6 Who is this NOT for? People who reside in … ICF/IID Nursing Group Anyone who resides in a Nursing FacilityThe Plans will be done by the facility they live inICF IID – at this point some have received training in the new PCP process- their caseworkers may choose to use the new process or an enhanced version
7 Case Managers as Plan Coordinators PCP process has been streamlined with a refocus on the person…Case Managers coordinate the process and ensure requirements are met.Provider Agencies are MaineCare Service Planners (home, community, employment/career.)Plans are entered into EIS as an assessment, providing ease of access and continuity of where items are tracked.The PCP process was changing and with it OADS has had to adapt how the plans are supported by caseworkers.
8 Why CMs as Plan Coordinators? Center for Medicare and Medicaid ServicesConflict Free Case ManagementNeed for informed choice and control by the personNo conflict between PCP and being paid for a serviceTalk thru these bulletsIncluding current coordination by an agency
9 Person-Centered vs. System-Centered by Dr. Beth Mount As you plan remember the inherent tension between systems and people…Acknowledge the tension and remember that people come first…Watch the 2 minute video by Dr. Mount and ask people to remember throughout the day that there will be a tension in the work we do
10 Case Management is… A “key” or “linchpin” service Case managers act as an agent of the state human service system and an agent of the individual (first) and family.The “system” needs case management to keep the world running.The individual and family rely on case management to help them build and sustain lives.Robin Cooper, NASDDSRobin E. Cooper, NASDDS, April 2013 – this information comes from Robin CooperAnother way would be to think of yourself as a representative vs. an agent…
11 Who is Involved in Planning? Who might be there?PersonGuardian, family, friendsCorrespondent (OAB)Caseworker (MANDATORY)Agency staffcommunity, work/career and homeProfessionals involved – OT, PT, therapist, doctorDRC Advocate can be invited if Person wantsThe Person chooses who to invite, when and where to meet, who facilitates, what’s on the agenda.The person may choose to not attend but must be involved in service planning- it is the caseworker and service responsibility to work with the person to feel comfortable in their own meeting- make it a meeting they want to attend

14 The Four Phases to Planning Phase One: Process Coordination Part 1The Case Manager works with the person to:Determine when and where meeting will occur, who will be invited, begin developing agenda, determine facilitatorSend out notices/invitationsAsk if the person wants a DRC Advocate, invite as decided
15 The Four Phases to Planning Phase One: Process Coordination Part 1The Case Manager will also:Secure a meeting spaceEnsure Service Planning & Goal Descriptions are entered by agency 30 days prior to plan meeting in EISReview Reportable events, IST, Safety Plan, Severely Intrusive Plan, if applicableBegin working on the Face Sheet
16 The Four Phases of Planning Phase Two: Service PlanningThe Service Provider (home, community, work/career) MUST talk with the person to develop Service Descriptions and Goals for each MaineCare Service provided.The Case Manager MUST talk individually with the person to develop Ancillary and Case Management Service and Goal Descriptions.Service Planning comes from understanding the person’s capacities, needs, desires, interests and goals for the next year.Based on conversations with the person and support staff the Service Providers will complete the required descriptions in EIS for MaineCare Services.
17 What is a Goal? An outcome the person wishes to achieve and is… Written in plain languageObservable- you can “see” itAbout what the person wants to do (important to the person not for the person)A balance between detail and open-endednessGives meaning to the Person’s lifeConnects to one of the 5 AccomplishmentsPage 25 of PCP Instruction Manual
18 What a Goal is Not… It is not a Service Description… or a “Hab Plan” or Plan of Care…or to measure percentages of success or number of trials.It is not always an activity that relates to the services described…or a “program.”
19 The Four Phases of Planning Phase Three: Process Coordination Part 2The Case Manager….Ensures EIS process and service/goal descriptions are complete.Reviews Assessments/Forms for themes, conflicts, issues and resolve prior to plan meeting.Completes Profile section of Personal Plan Narrative.Meets with the Person/Guardian to review Service & Goal Descriptions submitted and ensure they reflect the Person’s informed choice of service provider, supports and meaningful goals.Works with Person/Guardian to identify any sensitive issues and makes plan to address them outside of the plan meeting.Finalizes meeting agenda with Person/Guardian.Documents discussion and review of informed choice in the Personal Plan Narrative “Summary of Process Coordination.”

What would you change and what did you like?How is the plan going? Are you getting the supports to do the things you want and need? How satisfied are you with what you are receiving?Are you accomplishing your goals?Each Plan must include a description of how the Team will evaluate ongoing satisfaction.Case Manager conducts a review of the PCP every 90 days, which may or may not be part of accessing satisfactionSee PCP Instruction Manual pages 18 & 19
