All future CIS requests will be submitted through EHB.

6 Slide 6 Scope of Project and Change in Scope  CIS Programmatic Considerations  Define Scope of Project  Define Change in Scope  Time frame considerations relevant to requesting a change in scope

7 Slide 7 Defining Scope of Project  The scope of project defines the service sites, services, and service area(s) for the FQHC Look-Alike that have been approved by HRSA at the time of designation as an FQHC Look-Alike or through a subsequent Change in Scope application.

8 Slide 8 Defining Change in Scope  Proposed changes to the previously defined Scope of Project for the FQHC Look-Alike must be approved by HRSA and included in the current scope of project to be eligible for FQHC reimbursement.

9 Slide 9 Prior Approval for Changes in Scope of Project  Prior approval for the implementation of proposed changes is required from HRSA for:  Addition or deletion of services  Addition or deletion of sites  Relocation of a site

10 Slide 10 Time Frame Considerations Relevant to Requesting a Change in Scope  Apply 90 days prior to the proposed date for implementing the change  The effective date of an approved change in scope will be no earlier than the date of receipt of a complete request for prior approval, and will extend to the end of the FQHC Look-Alikes current designation  Approved change must be implemented within 120 days of CMS’ approval of the request

22 Slide 22 CIS Request Services Business Rules  Under Change Services, CIS request type shows, for required and existing additional services, what is considered a service “add” and what is considered a service “delete”

23 Slide 23 DELETE ADD CIS Request Services Business Rules  You can only change one service per CIS request  When a FQHC L-A starts paying for a service (e.g., moving from column III to I or II), it is considered an ADD  When a FQHC L-A stops paying for a service (e.g., moving from column I or II to III), it is considered a DELETE  If you start providing a required service that you did not include in BSV, it is considered an ADD

24 Slide 24 Example: Delete a Required Service  After we chose “Delete” under Required Services on the CIS Cover Page, we were taken to the Change Details page  On this page, we click the Pick From List button to choose the service to delete

25 Slide 25 Example: Delete a Required Service  We are allowed to choose only one service  We chose diagnostic laboratory and continued to the next screen

33 Slide 33 Example: Relocate Site Change Request  Relocating an existing site means terminating the site in its current location and adding it in its new one  For the “From” site, pick the site from the list of your existing ones  For the “To” site:  If you are moving services from one existing site to another, pick the site to be added from the list of your existing sites  If you are moving services to a site not previously in scope, you would click the Add New Site button to add that site.
