Why Managed Care Program Expansion? Legislative Mandate Added Program Value Cost Savings
Why Managed Care? Legislative Mandate ●The Ohio Commission to Reform Medicaid recommendation: ─ Establish a statewide care management program for all Medicaid consumers by: ▪Expanding the current full-risk program to all CFC consumers statewide, and ▪Applying a care management approach to selected ABD populations. ●Ohio’s Budget Mandate ─ Governor, House of Representatives, & Senate ─ Final Budget Mandate: Transform Ohio Medicaid by implementing the full-risk, managed care model for all CFC consumers, as well as a portion of the ABD population.
Why Managed Care? Added Program Value ●Key Managed Care Plan Benefits Include: Focused attention on prevention and care coordination within a Medical Home setting Advice and direction for medical issues via a 24/7 nurse hotline Help in accessing services through a dedicated call center and a provider directory listing PCPs, hospitals, and specialists Additional services for consumers with special health care needs including case management
Why Managed Care? Added Program Value Some MCPs may provide more services and benefits than the regular Medicaid fee-for-service (FFS) program offers. These might include: Transportation, e.g. cab fare, shuttle services, etc. Extended hours for member services (after 4:30 PM and/or weekends) Annual eye exams for adults Additional routine dental visits
Why Managed Care? Added Program Value Additional services continued: Gifts/gift certificates for obtaining prenatal care Gifts/gift certificates for getting immunizations and/or keeping Healthchek Waiver of co-payments
