Required planning process for adults receiving developmental services in Maine.

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. Person-Centered Planning Regulatory Requirements
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.)

People who reside in … ICF/IID Nursing Group Anyone who resides in a Nursing Facility The Plans will be done by the facility they live in Who is this NOT for?
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. Case Managers as Plan Coordinators
Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services Conflict Free Case Management Need for informed choice and control by the person No conflict between PCP and being paid for a service Why CMs as Plan Coordinators?
As you plan remember the inherent tension between systems and people… Acknowledge the tension and remember that people come first… Person-Centered vs. System-Centered by Dr. Beth Mount
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, NASDDS Case Management is…
Who might be there? Person Guardian, family, friends Correspondent (OAB) Caseworker (MANDATORY) Agency staff community, work/career and home Professionals involved – OT, PT, therapist, doctor DRC Advocate can be invited if Person wants The Person chooses who to invite, when and where to meet, who facilitates, what’s on the agenda. Who is Involved in Planning?
For the person and family all providers…. Engage in high quality, person-centered planning that keeps the full focus on the person Provide information, assistance and navigation of community resources Provide knowledgeable and thoughtful strategies to assist people with what is important to and important for them on behalf of… Be the front person for solving system problems of outcomes and quality on behalf of… Your Role in the PCP Process… Robin Cooper, NASDDS
For the systems management Case Managers… Are the front line on coordinating, monitoring, quality compliance, outcomes and health & safety Uphold key Medicaid requirements Ensure informed choice and freedom of choice Assure rights are protected Your Role in the PCP Process Robin Cooper, NASDDS
Phase One: Process Coordination Part 1 The Case Manager works with the person to: Determine when and where meeting will occur, who will be invited, begin developing agenda, determine facilitator Send out notices/invitations Ask if the person wants a DRC Advocate, invite as decided The Four Phases to Planning
Phase One: Process Coordination Part 1 The Case Manager will also: Secure a meeting space Ensure Service Planning & Goal Descriptions are entered by agency 30 days prior to plan meeting in EIS Review Reportable events, IST, Safety Plan, Severely Intrusive Plan, if applicable Begin working on the Face Sheet The Four Phases to Planning
Phase Two: Service Planning The 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. The Four Phases of Planning
An outcome the person wishes to achieve and is… Written in plain language Observable- you can “see” it About what the person wants to do (important to the person not for the person) A balance between detail and open-endedness Gives meaning to the Person’s life Connects to one of the 5 Accomplishments What is a Goal?
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.” What a Goal is Not…
Phase Three: Process Coordination Part 2 The 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.” The Four Phases of Planning
The Case Manager… Meets with the person (and guardian) without the agency present prior to the Plan Meeting to: Discuss proposed Home, Community, Work/Employment, Career Planning, Ancillary, Case Management, Assistive Technology Service & Goal Descriptions (can print and bring Descriptions from EIS) Discuss past year, what is important to and for the person Discuss upcoming year, what they want and need to do Review (and document) choice of services available to them through the Waivers and ensure they understand choice of providers, including case management Cover required conversations and any pre meeting items, such as sensitive issues, agenda, time, place, facilitation, etc. Reviewing Service & Goal Descriptions with Person & Guardian
Phase Four: Personal Plan Meeting The Focus Person and their team meet to review proposed plan as a whole, discuss how to coordinate goals across service areas, and plan how to enhance opportunities for community inclusion. Providers Role: Attend meeting to participate in coordination of goals across service areas. Review the MaineCare Service Descriptions submitted for the Service Area(s) they cover. Case Manager Role: Facilitates meeting agenda (unless person chooses another facilitator or facilitates them-self, including items on Narrative. Ensure any changes to Service & Goal Descriptions identified at the meeting are made in EIS (by the Provider of Service) prior to end of plan. The Four Phases of Planning
The meeting is a time to put all the pieces together….

Assessing satisfaction occurs throughout the planning process…. Case Manager and Service Providers ask the Person throughout the planning phases: How was the planning process for you? 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 satisfaction Assessing Focus Person Satisfaction w/ Personal Plan
