15 Closure Process - Assessment All hospitalized consumers have continuing clinical assessments of their discharge readiness and service needs. Assessments include the Individual Needs for Discharge Assessment (INDA) and the Housing Preference Interview (HPI) Families are included in the assessment and planning whenever possible Division Level Review is in place to further evaluate the appropriateness of clinical assessments and discharge plan Hagedorn will use the regulated appeal process for any consumer who refuses or challenges a transfer or community placement
16 Closure Process – Discharges & Transfers to Other State Hospitals Discharging consumers into the least restrictive, clinically appropriate setting remains the priority. Each Hagedorn consumer will have a Discharge/Transfer Plan completed before leaving Hagedorn. The plan will outline the consumers preferences and needs as identified by the consumer, guardian or family member. The plan will follow the consumer to the receiving facility and/or services to make the transition as smooth and therapeutic as possible. For consumer assessments which indicate a need for hospitalization after 6/30/12, consumers will be transferred to the appropriate hospital Transfers will be conducted in a planned manner with involvement from the consumer and family during planning process.

21 Comprehensive Waiver Behavioral Health Overview What is the Vision? Improved access Improved quality Greater value Sustainability
22 Proposed Behavioral Health System Vision The design of the States Medicaid program to manage Behavioral Health (BH) is grounded in the following vision: To improve access to appropriate physical and BH care services for individuals with mental illness or substance use disorders To better manage medical costs for individuals with co-occurring BH-PH conditions To improve health outcomes and consumer satisfaction
23 Why? The DMHAS merger: Integration of mental health and addictions Integration of behavioral health and primary care Preparation for Health Care Reform under ACA (January 2014) To sustain the Medicaid program through reform initiatives
24 Integration of Mental Health and Addictions The merger of DMHS and DAS into DMHAS lays the foundation to build a combined system that provides best practice treatments for individuals with co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders
25 Integration of Behavioral Health and Primary Care (PC) Currently, BH care for adult consumers and childrens services under Medicaid fee-for-service (FFS) is fragmented and largely unmanaged, with an over-reliance on institutional rather than community-based care These same individuals receive their medical care through one of four Managed Care Organizations (MCOs), with very limited or no formal protocols for coordination between the medical and BH delivery systems For Medicaids highest cost adult beneficiaries - approximately two-thirds have a mental illness and one-fifth have both a mental illness and substance use disorder - the opportunity for improved clinical outcomes through improved BH-PH coordination is welcome
26 What is the Plan? Systems Managed Behavioral Health Organization (MBHO) MCO/MBHO coordination Braided funding Opportunities for rate rebalancing Evolution from no risk model, to risk model Children, SAI and consumers with developmental disabilities
27 What is the Clinical Service Model? Clinical eligibility Uniform screening and assessment The SAMHSA 4-quadrant model ASO/MBHO clinical role Behavioral health homes Accountable care organizations New Medicaid covered services Additional special initiatives
28 In Sum-What is the Good News? Integrated Care SA/MH and BH/PH Opportunities for rate rebalancing Increased FFP Medicaid service expansion for SA services Potential reinvestment of savings Potential for Medicaid reimbursement under the risk arrangement to support first 30 days of residential community-based services in lieu of acute care Better access, enhanced quality, and improved outcomes
29 What are the Greatest Challenges? Communication Consumer involvement to ensure ease of access IT infrastructure Moving from non-risk to risk over time Managing eligibility and enrollment Coordination between MBHO and HMO Defining outcome measures to gauge performance
30 Roll Out Timeline Stakeholder involvement Communication strategy
31 Timeline Stakeholder presentations; workgroups formed Workgroup recommendations delivered to DMHAS Adolescent SA services transitioned to DCBH Treasury RFP for MBHO published MBHO selected Readiness review of the MBHO conducted January 1, 2013 - MBHO implemented for adults expanding community-based mental health and addictions services
