2 Impact of Chapter 9 of the Acts of 2011 On April 11, 2011, the Governor signed into law Chapter 9 of the Acts of 2011, which amends the implementation timeline for Chapter 257 of the Acts of As amended, Chapter 257 will now require that a prospective rate setting process be implemented for not less than 40 percent of contracts with social service providers by January 1, 2012, 70 percent of such contracts by January 1, 2013, and for all contracts no later than January 1, 2014.EOHHS is developing communication to be posted on the Chapter 257 website and disseminated to departments and providers regarding the legislation, implementation plan, and activities that will be undertaken.
3 How will this legislation impact planned implementation? New implementation dates require meeting the current work schedule so that 40% of the POS system will have rates adopted by January 1, 2012.Delay reflects the amount of time needed to not only develop rate proposals, but to also plan for effective implementation.Allows for better alignment with the Commonwealth’s budget cycle; fiscal and client impact of proposed rates will be incorporated into Department spending plans and Governor’s budget proposal.Section 48 requires that departments not procure services, where procurement is necessary to implement regulated rates, prior to rate setting.New procurements may only be issued with the written approval of the Secretary based on a documented finding that the procurement is necessary to assure:Continuity of consumer health, safety, or access,Program integrity, where a new contract is necessary to replace an existing contract that terminated early due to unanticipated circumstances, orCompliance with a court order, settlement agreement, or statutory requirement.
4 Today and TomorrowCurrent residential POS contracts are structured so that:Services end with discharge from the residential facilityCommunity services post discharge are purchased separately, presenting a challenge for continuityProviders serving both DCF and DMH are held to different standards and requirementsThe planned contracting mechanism:Allows for integration of residential and community services within the same contractAllows for continuity of service post residential to promote successful transitionsCreates consistent standards and expectations for both purchasing Agencies.
5 Highlights of New Expectations contained in Joint Standards (Required for All Models) Family FocusIncreased family engagement and utilization of family partners in care planning and delivery. The family is the focus of the intervention and treatment: Voice and ChoiceIncreased use of peer leaders with older adolescents: Voice and ChoiceFocus on School AchievementRequirement for Board Members with “lived experience”Family part of CQI processQualityContinuous Quality Improvement:Supporting positive outcomes in education, permanency, health and wellnessOutcomes measured will reflect post discharge success in community tenure and school participationPerformance Based Contracting: Develop performance contracts with financial incentives to leverage performance relative to client and system outcomes. Financial Incentives and reimbursement methodologies that support improved client outcomes.Performance measures that align with principles and reflect the primary desired outcomes.Records and Documentation: Includes joint reporting requirements and documentation
