  12. New Eligibility Standard: Theoretical 12 Department of Health Managed Long Term Care Guide You must join a Plan if: • You have both Medicaid and Medicare • You need home care, adult day health care, or other long term care for more than 120 days (four months) • You are age 21 or older

  13. New Eligibility Standard: Practical 13 Department of Health Website • Am I eligible for managed long-term care? You are eligible to enroll in managed long-term care if you: • have a chronic illness or disability that makes you eligible for services usually provided in a nursing home; • are able to stay safely at home at the time you join the plan; • are expected to need long-term care services for at least 120 days from the date you enroll; • meet the age requirement of the plan (the age requirement for a PACE organization is 55 years old; for most other plans, the age requirement is 65 years old); • live in the area served by the plan; • have or are willing to change to a doctor who is willing to work with the plan; and • have a way of paying that is accepted by the plan. All plans accept Medicaid. Some plans also accept Medicare and private pay.

  14. Implications for SADC 14 • MLTC Policy 13.03 (1/25/13): SADC is a covered benefit, but does NOT count for eligibility (only personal care services in the home ) • MLTC Policy 13.05 (2/28/13): SADC cannot represent an enrollee’s complete plan of care

  15. Agenda 15 Today’s Objectives 3 Impact of Reforms on MLTC Relationship with Social Adult Day Care

  16. Some Bad Press in April 2013 16 Plans accused of questionable arrangements with social adult day care facilities  Unregulated facilities  Questionable services  Potentially improper incentives  Dubious eligibility Enrollment was suspended in one large plan, and a series of investigations were initiated

  17. DOH Regulatory Response 17 Medicaid Director Letter 4/26/13 :  SADC cannot represent the primary service in a plan of care  All plans required to immediately reassess enrollees receiving SADC  OMIG audits pending  Reminder that plans may not offer “materials, financial gain or service incentives” as an inducement to enroll  No marketing permitted at, or referrals permitted from, SADC sites

  18. More New DOH Policy Statements 18 MLTC Policy 13.11 (5/8/13): • If, upon reassessment, an enrollee does not need or refuses CBLTC services (e.g. in-home personal care), should be disenrolled • Fee-for-service Medicaid will not pay for SADC • Plans must formally credential all providers, including SADC programs, at least every three years • All contracted SADC programs must meet SOFA standards

  19. More New DOH Policy Statements 19 MLTC Policy 13.14 (5/30/13): • No required or recommended service mix or ratio of CBLTC to SADC services MLTC Policy 13.15 (6/10/13): • Individuals who only require housekeeping do not meet MLTC eligibility requirement

  20. Credentialing of SADC Programs 20 • DOH circulated list of suspect programs (including some that met SOFA standards and some that did not) • Plans argued that imposing individual responsibility for SADC program credentialing was too burdensome MLTC Policy 15.01 (5/8/15): • Requires new annual certification process for any SADC programs contracting with MLTCPs • MLTCPs must ensure contracted SADC programs have certification • MLTCs still required to conduct annual site inspections of SADC programs
