14 BEING AN EN: A PROVIDER’S PERSPECTIVE 14

15 Clubhouse of Suffolk - EN Current status of Tickets assigned – 25 total assignments 7 currently employed TWL) 10 in job placement phase, rest in job readiness development 4 payments thus far, with several expected in coming months Potential revenue look-back – 3 years since TTW regulations changed (July 2008) – Had tickets started being assigned then, potential revenue to date: $214,200 (approximately), based on past employment data at our 2 sites - Ronkonkoma & Riverhead (Synergy Center) 15

16 Clubhouse of Suffolk – EN (cont’d) Strategy for targeting Ticket holders – Target current and incoming PROS members first: 48 seeking employment at this time who are also eligible Ticket holders. – 4-6 calls per month from community ticket holders (about half do not have a psychiatric disability) – Market Clubhouse Ticket to Work Services at Behavioral Health Trade Show (Mental Illness Awareness Day, October 2011) – Referral CD / Collaboration w/ Community ENs 16

17 Clubhouse of Suffolk – EN (cont’d) Lessons learned – Be selective in WHO you choose to assign and WHEN – ALWAYS check Ticket status with MAXIMUS (1 st meeting/contact, before IWP) Challenges and opportunities – Staffing / Expertise (Benefits counseling/planning paramount) – Everything must be submitted in paper format at this time – Integration into existing Electronic Medical Record (EMR) – Expand into Clubhouse Case Management? (Future) 17

18 New EN Requirements Impact on service delivery – More documentation (but not much) & better organization – Better, more comprehensive services, more qualified employees providing services – Complements and is in accordance w/ COS’s mission Affect on organizational structure – Differentiation and designation of staff w/ specific TTW related duties (counseling, billing, intakes, recordkeeping, etc.) and who has access to TTW-specific information. What have the changes meant for the Clubhouse of Suffolk: Not that much! – More structure, clarity of EN expectations, more solid service delivery. 18
