4 4 The People Served Are:  Medicaid Eligible or Dual Eligible for Medicare and Medicaid  Diagnosed With an Average of 12.7 Different Conditions  Taking 13.7 Different Medicationson Average  In Need of Skilled Nursing Intervention

5 5 Wisconsin Has Implemented Two Programs Fully Integrate Medicare and Medicaid Services  Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE)  The Wisconsin Partnership Program

6 6 Key Distinctions Between Partnership & PACE  PACE Members:  Attend a Day Center & Receive Most Services There;  Receive Care by the On-site PACE Physician;  Are Elderly.  Must Be Residents of a Large Urban Areas Capable of Supporting a PACE Site.

7 7 Key Distinctions Between Partnership & PACE  Partnership Members:  Select a Primary Care Physician From a Contracted Provider Network;  Receive Most Services in Their Home;  Can Be Frail Elderly or Have a Physical Disability;  The Partnership Nurse Practitioner Serves As Team’s Primary Care Representative & Accompanies the Member to Most MD Appointments;  Partnership Works in Both an Urban & Rural Setting.

8 8 Funding for Partnership & PACE  Both Medicare and Medicaid Benefits are Capitated and Paid to the Contractor  The Medicare Capititation is the Rate Book Multiplied by a 2.39 Risk Adjuster. (90%in 2004)  Risk Adjusted Rate Based on CMS-HCC and Frailty Adjuster (10%in 2004)  The Same Rate Setting Methodology is Used for Both PACE and Partnership

9 9 Funding for Partnership & PACE  Medicaid Capitation is Calculated by Discounting a Blended Average Cost for Nursing Home Care and Home and Community Bases Waiver Programs Costs.  Rates are Risk Adjusted for Age, Medicaid Only or Dual Eligible Status, and Level of Care.  The Rates for Elderly and People with Physical Disabilities Differ Significantly.  The PACE and Partnership Rates Differ Slightly Based on Case Mix

12 12 How Partnership Works 

13 13 How Partnership Works  Partnership Organizations are at Full Risk for All Health and Long-Term Care Outcomes.  Both Medicare and Medicaid Capitation Payments are Made to the Organizations.  The Partnership Organizations Subcontract with Various Providers including Primary Care Physicians and Hospitals and Pay Them on a Fee-For-Service Basis

14 14 How Partnership Works  Care is Coordinated Through an Interdisciplinary Team which includes: The Member Primary Care Physician (PCP) Nurse Practitioner (NP) Registered Nurse (RN) Social Worker

15 15 How Partnership Works  The NP Meets with the PCP to Establish a Collaborative Practice Agreement that Often Leads to the Delegation of Primary Care to the NP.  The NP Acts as the Liaison Between the PCP, the Member and the Remainder of the Team.  RNs Provide Both Care Management and Skilled Nursing Care.  Social Workers Provide both Psychosocial and other Supportive Services as Necessary

16 16 How Partnership Works  Provides Prevention Services to Minimize the Need for Inpatient and Emergency Room Care.  Provides Community Based, Supportive Services to Minimize the Need for Nursing Home Care.  Accompanies the Member to Physician Visits and “Translates” Physician Recommendation for the Benefit of the Member and the Team.

17 17 How Partnership Works  Assures that Member Concerns and Preferences are Understood.  Assures Follow Through with Physician Recommendations.  Promotes Quality of Life by Supporting Member Specified Outcome.

18 18 Measuring Outcomes of the Partnership Program  The Department of Health and Family Services is using several methods, both traditional and innovative, to measure quality & effectiveness:  14 Member Outcomes Based on Member’s Input about his/her Quality of Life;  Incidence of ACSCs (ambulatory care sensitive conditions);  Utilization of Inpatient Hospital & Nursing Home Care Before & After Partnership.

19 19 14 Member Outcomes  Developed by the Council on Quality and Leadership, a national accreditation agency for community disability programs.  Determines whether: members’ desired outcomes are being met, and the support the member needs to achieve the outcome has been put in place by the team.
