PPACA Initiatives 3 State Based Insurance Exchange (HB248) Medicaid Expansion (HB309)
State Based Insurance Exchange 4 Governor’s Insurance Exchange Work Group Broad Based Coalition Including Multiple Associations Focal Issue is Local Control and Risk Pool Political Environment became Toxic Bill passed and Signed into Law
Medicaid Expansion 5 Governor’s Medicaid Expansion Work Group Broad Based Coalition Including Multiple Associations Financial Cost of Not Expanding Economic Cost of Not expanding Bill was Printed but Not Heard in Committee
Governor’s Medicaid Work Group 6 The work group unanimously recommended that Idaho expand its Medicaid program in a manner that provided more efficiency and participant accountability The work group included three legislators, multiple association representatives, representatives from the Department of Health and Welfare and others
Broad Based Coalition Support 7 IHA participated in a broad based coalition to support the expansion of the Medicaid program in Idaho. The coalition included IHA, IMA, Chambers of Commerce and Others
Financial Cost of Not Expanding Medicaid 8 Ten year cost of Mandatory Medicaid Coverage is $394 Million* State and local savings if Idaho were to expand Medicaid to 138% of FPL would be $403.9 Million* over ten years. Expanding the Medicaid program would more than offset the cost of the mandatory expansion of the Medicaid program. * Milliman Client Report: Impact of PPACA On the Medicaid Budget Including state and Local Cost offsets
Economic Cost of Not Expanding 9 The Milliman Client Report was provided to Professor Steven Peterson, of the University of Idaho, to project the economic effects of Medicaid Expansion using the 2010 IMPLAN model for the State of Idaho. Federal funding for expanded Medicaid program represents new money entering the Idaho economy. $985.5 Million* for mandatory and $8.2 Billion* for optional expansion in new federal funds/money. When new money enters into an economy it creates jobs as well as state and local tax revenue.
14 Medicaid Expansion Will Continue to be IHA’s Top Legislative Priority
Medicaid Program Changes 15 Medicaid Patient-centered Medical Homes (PCMH) This is part of the governor’s Multi-Payer Medical Home Collaborative. IHA is a member of the Collaborative. Medicaid Community Care Networks (CCN) This is a provider based network approach to Medicaid managed care. It is part of Idaho’s State Multi-Payer Innovation Model (SIM) grant project from CMS.
Medicaid Patient Centered Medical Homes 16 In 2010 Governor Otter Established the Multi-Payer Medical Home Collaborative to create a more coordinated approach to care for patient with certain chronic conditions and at least one of the identified risk factors. Chronic Conditions: Diabetes type 1&2 Asthma Mental Illness Risk Factors: Hypertension, Dyslipidemia, Tobacco Use, BMI>25, Coronary Arterial Disease, Disease of the Respiratory System
PCMH Enhanced Payment 17 For patients that qualify under the program, PCMH practices/clinics will be paid $15 per month by Medicaid instead of the lower Healthy Connections fee. Private insurance payment will vary. The additional payment is intended to cover the cost of care coordination and the attainment of NCQA medical home recognition. Currently Medicaid, Blue Cross, Blue shield and Pacific source are participating in the pilot program that began in January.
Medicaid Community Care Networks (CCN) 18 The 2011 Legislature declared that Medicaid was unsustainable. Passed House Bill 260 mandating a move to managed care. Improve current healthcare delivery system Institute gain sharing, risk sharing or capitation Increase participant accountability
Joint Managed Care Forum. 19 In December of 2011 The Department of Health and Welfare jointly hosted a forum on managed care. Joint participant were the Department, IHA, IMA and IPCA IHA hired a consultant to explore alternatives to traditional MCO models Provider-based managed care was presented as an alternative MCOs
NASHP/North Carolina Grant 20 Shortly after the joint health care forum, NASHP solicited grant application for a State Learning Transformation opportunity based on the experience of the Community Care North Carolina Program. A coalition from Idaho applied for the grant and was selected to participate. After a visit to North Carolina the coalition decided to pursue an adaptation of their CCN Model.
CMS/CMMI SIM Grant 21 The coalition developed an application for Governor Otter to apply for a State Innovation Model (SIM) Grant offered by CMS’ Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation. The state was awarded $3 million for the purpose of designing the CCN managed care delivery system for Idaho. The grant was for a multi-payer design which put the coalition better in line wit the Governor’s multi-payer medical home initiative which would be leveraged by the CCN model.
