5 Dual Eligible Background and Population 5

6 Dual Eligible Background 6

7 Duals Background cont. About 1.2 million Medi-Cal beneficiaries are enrolled in both Medicare and Medi-Cal in California and are referred to as dual eligibles. Medicare is the primary payer for dual eligibles and covers health services, such as physician and hospital services and short-term skilled nursing. Medi-Cal is the secondary payer and typically covers Medicare cost sharing and services not covered by Medicare, as well as services delivered after Medicare benefits have been exhausted. Most long term care costs are paid for by Medi-Cal including longer nursing home stays and home and community based services designed to prevent institutionalization. 7

8 Cal MediConnect Population California s Dual Eligible Population by Age and Location Los Angeles County Number* 22 to 64 years 82,895 Greater than 65 years 292,629 Subtotal (22 and older) 375,524 San Diego County 22 to 64 years 23,761 Greater than 65 years 51,043 Subtotal (22 and older) 74,804 California 22 to 65 years 338,886 Greater than 65 years 797,846 Subtotal (22 and older) 1,136,732 *SOURCE: California DHCS, Medi-Cal/Medicare Dual Eligibility by Age by County (January 2012). 8

10 Cal MediConnect Categories At Health Net there are 3 categories that dual eligible members may fall into. Full Duals Partial Duals Opt-Out Enrollee will have both Medicare parts A/B and be eligible for part D) and Medi-Cal Enrollee has Medi-Cal and Medicare A or B Enrollee who is Full Dual eligible, but who elects not to participate in the demonstration (opts out of Cal MediConnect, but still enrolled for Medi-Cal Managed Care)

11 Hypothetical Case Study Example of Target Population Background: A middle-aged enrollee with cognitive disabilities residing in a Board and Care facility without an appropriate support system has recently been experiencing frequent acute care admissions. The enrollee has a mental health diagnosis in addition to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), obesity and hypertension. This enrollee has not seen a primary doctor for over a year but has seen a psychiatrist. The enrollee was hospitalized twice for COPD as a result of noncompliance with treatment plan. The enrollee s continued residence at the Board and Care facility is at risk due to the enrollee s inability to comply with his treatment regimen. 11

12 Hypothetical Case Study Example of Target Population We ll use examples through out to help illustrate how this model will be delivered. Interventions: The Health Net Case Manager, who is a member of the interdisciplinary care team (ICT), will arrange for the following after a discussion with the enrollee: behavioral health, primary care and pulmonology appointments and transportation to them; medication reconciliation by a pharmacist; and nutritional counseling. An integrated Care Plan will be developed based on the result of these interventions. The intervention may include finding alternative home health care or services if the enrollee s mental health disorder interferes with the delivery of services. Goals: The goals would be to: Establish an integrated Care Plan that would stabilize the enrollee s acute medical condition Establish behavioral health treatment plan Maintain ability to reside at the Board and Care facility Establish ICT Team makeup and receive approval from enrollee 12

13 Goals of the Cal MediConnect MOC 13

14 Goals of Cal MediConnect The California DHCS (Department of Health Care Services), Medi-Cal Managed Care Division, in partnership with the CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services), launched a three-year Dual Eligible Demonstration Project (Demonstration) in The goals for the Dual Eligible Model of Care as stated by the CMS and DHCS are to improve health outcomes through: Improving access to essential services such as medical, mental health, Long Term Services and Supports(LTSS), and social services Improving access to affordable care by optimizing utilization of homeand community-based services (HCBS) Improving coordination of care through an identified point of contact and medical home Improving seamless transitions of care across health care settings, providers and HCBS 14

15 Goals of Cal MediConnect cont Improving access to preventive health services Improving access to HCBS/LTSS Assuring appropriate utilization of services Improving enrollee health outcomes and satisfaction. Preserving and enhancing the ability of consumers to self-direct their care and enable Dual Eligible enrollees to remain in their homes and communities Through Case Management Health Net strives to support the enrollee s desire to self direct care, help the enrollee regain optimum health and improve functional capability in the right setting and most cost effective manner. Health Net will measure outcomes to monitor goals using metrics collected through Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS ), Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS ), HRA, audit, appeals and grievance and utilization. 15

16 Definitions for Person Centered Care Person-Centered Care Appropriate Care: CMS, California, and Participating Plans shall ensure that all medically necessary covered benefits are provided to enrollees and are provided in a manner that is sensitive to the beneficiary s functional and cognitive needs, language and culture, allows for involvement of the beneficiary and caregivers (as permitted by the beneficiary), and is in a care setting appropriate to the beneficiary s needs, with a preference for the home and the community. CMS, California, and Participating Plans shall ensure that care is person-centered and can accommodate and support self-direction. Participating Plans shall also ensure that medically necessary covered services are provided to beneficiaries in the least restrictive community setting, and in accordance with the enrollee s wishes and Individual Care Plan.

17 Enrollee Centered Model of Care Enrollee is informed of and consents to Case Management Enrollee participates in development of the Care Plan Enrollee agrees to the goals and interventions of the Care Plan Enrollee informed of Interdisciplinary Care Team (ICT) members agrees with the makeup and is aware of meetings the team has Enrollee either participates in the ICT meeting or provides input through the Case Manager and is informed of the outcomes 17

24 Interdisciplinary Care Teams (ICT) 24

25 Interdisciplinary Care Team (ICT) The ICT will be offered to Dual Eligible enrollees when a need is demonstrated, or if an enrollee, or enrollee authorized representative, family member and/or caregiver requests one. The ICT will coordinate care for Dual Eligible enrollees to address medical, cognitive, psychosocial, and functional needs. The ICT is responsible for overseeing, coordinating, and evaluating the care delivered to enrollees. The ICT meets regularly to review these needs of the enrollee. The enrollee is included on the ICT whenever possible: Required Team members - Enrollee or authorized representative - Family member and or caregiver as approved by Enrollee - If receiving IHSS, the County IHSS social worker - Medical Expert (e.g., PCP or Specialist) - Care Coordinator (e.g., Case Manager (CM), Social Worker, or Behavioral Health CM) Optional Team members (as needed and approved by enrollee) Pharmacist Health Educator Public Program Coordinator Long Term Care Provider Disease Management Specialist LTSS Service Provider (CBAS, MSSP, etc) Specialized Providers (PT, OT) County Behavioral Health Providers 25

26 Interdisciplinary Care Team (ICT) Health Net defines demonstrated need for an ICT as any of the following: Any member who has a Care Level of High Any member who has undergone a care transition such as a change in level of care, an unplanned inpatient admission, etc. Any member who has been identified by the ICT pharmacist as high risk via the Medication Therapy Management (MTM) program Any member who has experienced a significant change in health status Any member and/or case manager experiencing barriers to achieving goals requiring support of ICT Any member whose assessment identifies needs requiring support of the ICT 26

27 Interdisciplinary Care Team (ICT) The role of the ICT is to: Facilitate care management, analyze and incorporate the results of the initial and annual HRA into the Care Plan, authorization of services and transitional care. Conduct ICT meetings periodically and at the enrollee s request Manage communication and information flow regarding referrals transitions and care delivered outside the primary care site. Maintain a call line or other mechanism for the enrollee s inquiries and input. Maintain a process for referring the enrollee to other agencies, such as LTSS or behavioral health agencies, as appropriate. Use secure , fax, web portals or written communication when communicating with enrollees. When communicating with the enrollee, the ICT must take his or her needs (e.g. communication, cognitive, or other barriers) into account.

28 Person Centered ICT The ICT will be person-centered: built on the enrollee s specific preferences and needs, delivering services with transparency, individualization, respect, linguistic and cultural competence, and dignity. The enrollee can choose to limit or disallow altogether the role of IHSS providers, family members and other caregivers on the team. Participating Plans will require that each ICT has a composite of members that are knowledgeable on key competencies including, but not limited to: person-centered planning processes, cultural competence, accessibility and accommodations, independent living and recovery, and wellness principles.

29 Provider Network and Integrated Communications 29

30 Specialized Provider Network Health Net maintains a comprehensive network of Primary Care Providers, facilities, specialists, behavioral health care providers, social service providers, community agencies and ancillary services to meet the needs of Dual Eligible enrollees with complex social and medical needs. Health Net will coordinate with IHSS, MSSP and other HCBS programs as necessary to meet the needs of duals enrollees to assist them with their goal to remain independent in their homes. Health Net provides the full Duals Model of Care with team based internal case management when it is not provided by the enrollee s primary care provider and medical group. Delegated medical groups that demonstrate capability to meet the team based care requirements provide the Duals Model of Care for their enrollees. The Delegation Oversight team monitors that delegated medical groups meet the Duals Model of Care requirements 30

31 Integrated Communications Health Net has integrated and extensive communication systems necessary to implement the Duals care coordination requirements: The Electronic Medical Management System integrates documentation of case management, care planning, input from the interdisciplinary team, transitions, assessments, waivers and authorizations for non-delegated enrollees The Customer Call Center is staffed with associates trained to assist with enrollment, eligibility and coordination of benefit issues or questions, and can connect them to their Case Manager (CM) The Provider Portal securely communicates Health Risk Assessment results and new enrollee information to Duals delegated medical groups The Member Portal provides enrollee access to online education, programs and the ability to create a personal health record Enrollee and Provider Communications such as enrollee newsletters, educational outreach, Provider Updates and Provider Online news may be distributed by mail, phone, fax or online 31

32 Additional Benefits 32

33 Added Benefits A combined Medicare/Medi-Cal benefit package, enhanced with additional value-added benefits and services, will be offered as a means of helping Dual Eligible enrollees meet their specialized health care needs. Decision Power/Disease Management whole person approach to wellness with comprehensive educational and interactive health materials and a focus on chronic diseases Medication Therapy Management a pharmacist reviews medications annually and communicates with enrollee and doctor regarding issues such as duplications, interactions, gaps in treatment, adherence issues Complex Case Management - case management services available for enrollees experiencing catastrophic or end-of life diagnosis Transportation for medically related trips including a family or caregiver if needed Dental, Vision, and lower costs for items such as Diabetic Monitoring supplies and Oxygen these benefits vary by region and type of Dual plan 33

34 No Balance Billing: No enrollee may be balance billed by any provider for any reason for covered services. Pharmacy and Part D Medicare Health Net will continue to comply with Medicare Advantage and Medicare Prescription Drug Program requirements in Part C and Part D HN is permitted to charge co-pays for drugs and pharmacy products (including both those covered by both Medicare Part D and Medi-Cal) to individuals currently eligible to make such payments Co-pays charged must not exceed the applicable amounts for brand and generic drugs established yearly by CMS under the Part D Low Income Subsidy or Medi-Cal cost-sharing rules HN may elect to reduce this cost sharing for all enrollees as a way of testing whether reducing enrollee cost sharing for pharmacy products improves health outcomes and reduces overall health care expenditures through improved medication adherence.

35 Decision Power Disease Management Health Net s comprehensive disease management program focuses on the following co-morbid chronic conditions: Heart Failure (CHF) Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) Diabetes Additional components of the program can include: Biometric monitoring devices and reporting Care Alerts for enrollees and providers when gaps in care or treatment are identified Preventive health reminders on the enrollee portal Tobacco Cessation 24/7 telephonic access to a nurse 35

36 Case Management 36

37 Case Management All Dual enrollees are eligible for case management, have an individualized care plan developed and an ICT when a need is demonstrated or when it is requested. Enrollees may opt out of active case management but remain assigned to a Case Manager who continues to contact the enrollee especially if there is a change in health status Enrollees are stratified according to their risk profile to focus resources on the most vulnerable Enrollees who are stratified based on data as high risk behavioral health will receive case management from MHN, Health Net s Behavioral Health provider The Health Net, MHN or delegated medical group Case Manager coordinates the enrollee s Interdisciplinary Care Team (ICT) 37

38 Cal MediConnect Case Management Flowchart New Dual Enrollee Eligibility File State Provided Data Health Net MHN Delegated Groups Medical Dx Only Behavioral Dx Only Medical Dx Only Medical and Behavioral Dx Medical and Behavioral Dx 38

39 Case Management Process The Case Manager: Performs an assessment of medical, psychosocial, cognitive and functional status Develops a comprehensive individualized care plan Identifies barriers to goals and strategies to address Provides personalized education for optimal wellness Encourages preventive care such as flu vaccines and mammograms Reviews and educates on medication regimen Promotes appropriate utilization of benefits Assists enrollee to access community resources Assists caregiver when enrollee is unable to participate Provides a single point of contact during Care Transitions 39

40 Health Risk Assessment (HRA) HRA calls are made by a vendor with access to interpreter service or by HN associates in CM, whichever occurs first. A health risk assessment should be conducted on each enrollee to identify medical, psychosocial, cognitive and functional risks Health Net attempts to complete the initial HRA telephonically: within 45 days for higher risk enrollees from date of enrollment with in 90 days for lower risk enrollees or in if an enrollee is in a nursing facility annually within 1 year of the last HRA for all enrollees Multiple attempts are made to contact the enrollee and the survey is mailed if unable to reach them telephonically The enrollee s responses to the HRA are incorporated into the enrollee s care plan and communicated to the provider via provider portal or by mail 40

41 Individualized Care Plan Created for each enrollee by the Case Manager Based on the enrollee s assessment and identified problems, considering enrollee preferences, choices and abilities Goals are measurable and time-bound to meet medical, behavioral health and long term support needs as determined through the HRA, clinical and community service assessments, utilization data, self and provider referrals, input from ICT members (if need is demonstrated), and other data. Updated when there is a change in the enrollee s medical status or at least annually Communicated when there is a transition to a new care setting such as the hospital or skilled nursing facility Communicated to the enrollee/caregiver and the primary physician 41

42 Care Plan Goals -- SMART Specific: clear with target result to be achieved Measurable: includes quantifiable criteria of how the result will be measured such as quantity, frequency and time period Achievable: realistic, clinically appropriate, and credible (Case Manager, Medical Director, enrollee or provider is confident that he/she has the ability to attain the goal) Results-oriented: stated in terms of an outcome that must be achieved and requires focused interventions and effort Time -bound: includes specific deadline by which the goal must be achieved that focuses attention and effort on achieving the goal results 42

43 Management of Care Transitions Enrollees are at increased risk of adverse outcomes when there is a transition from one care setting to another such as admission or discharge from a hospital, skilled nursing, rehabilitation center or home health Dual enrollees experiencing or at-risk of an inpatient transition are identified (via pre-authorization, facility notification, surveillance) Inpatient stays (acute, SNF, rehab) are monitored including the establishment of the Care Plan by the physician in 1 business day of admission When the enrollee is discharged home, the Case Manager conducts post-discharge calls in 2 business days of notification to review changes to Care Plan, assist with discharge needs, review medications and encourage follow-up care with provider 43

44 Care Transitions Prevention Stratification/Surveillance Case Management Disease Management Identification Management Pre-Authorization Notification of Admits in 24 rs Daily Admission Reports LTSS Prepare for Admission Communicate Care Plan Discharge Plan and Follow-Up Improve Outcomes Decrease Readmits 44

45 Olmstead Decision For more information on the Olmstead Decision, please visit the ADA web site v/olmstead/ In the Olmstead decision the court upheld that public entities must provide community-based services to persons with disabilities when: 1. such services are appropriate; 2. the affected persons do not oppose community-based treatment; and 3. community-based services can be reasonably accommodated, taking into account the resources available to the public entity and the needs of others who are receiving disability services from the entity. The Supreme Court explained that its holding "reflects two evident judgments." 1. "institutional placement of persons who can handle and benefit from community settings perpetuates unwarranted assumptions that persons so isolated are incapable of or unworthy of participating in community life." 2. "confinement in an institution severely diminishes the everyday life activities of individuals, including family relations, social contacts, work options, economic independence, educational advancement, and cultural enrichment."

46 Integration of Long Term Services and Supports (LTSS) LTSS will be incorporated in to the care plan to support the independence of the enrollee in their homes and community. LTSS is to include the Medi-Cal State Plan benefits and services for the enrollee including: Nursing Home (SNF/LTC) Palliative Care In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) Community Based Adult Services (CBAS) Multipurpose Senior Services Program (MSSP) 46

47 In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) IHSS performs a critical role in the lives of many Dual Eligible enrollees. The core tenet of this program includes: Caregiver services that are enrollee directed, which means they have the rights to hire, fire, schedule, and supervise their IHSS care provider. Reliance upon Health Net s the ability to improve upon the IHSS system, while ensuring we do not fracture the system and disrupt enrollees abilities to receive needed IHSS services. Health Net will develop care coordination practices with both LA and San Diego Counties while county social service IHSS consumers will participate in the development of their Care Plan, and select who else participates in their planning of care.

48 Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNF) Many beneficiaries may have gone from acute care settings to nursing homes without adequate, appropriate community-based services being offered. Upon enrollment, Health Net's contracted LTC provider and certain medical groups will work with Dual Eligible enrollees living in a nursing home to determine if less restrictive living arrangements are wanted or feasible Building upon Health Net s recent experience with the California Seniors & Persons with Disabilities (SPDs) expansion, a more comprehensive approach has been developed to integrate the entire continuum of available services through the development of personcentered care management plans Health Net's contracted LTC provider and certain medical group s Case managers will review all institutionalized enrollees and those at risk for institutional care to help keep them independent and in their homes

49 CBAS and MSSP In lieu of institutionalization in a SNF, Health Net's IDCT identifies enrollees who may benefit from CBAS programs, formerly known as adult day care centers. These services may be authorized for up to five days a week and could include the following: Health Net will work with the Area Agency on Aging (AAA) and local MSSPs to explore options to expand capacity of the intensive care coordination The CBAS waiver services delivered by licensed, communitybased providers in an Adult Day Health Center (ADHC) setting. A CBAS provider provides a bundled service package at an ADHC, pursuant to a participant s evaluation, developed by the CBAS provider s multidisciplinary team. The MSSP provides social and health care management services for frail elderly Medi-Cal enrollees, 65 years and over, who are certified or certifiable for placement in a nursing facility but who wish to remain at home. Goal is to arrange for and monitor the use of community services to prevent or delay premature institutional placement of frail elderly, Medi-Cal enrollees.

50 Long Term Care (LTC) For enrollees in a LTC a care coordination conference will occur with the enrollee, the enrollee s family and facility providers to develop a person-centered Care Plan for enrollees who are residing in LTC facilities. The ICT develops a person-centered Care Plan based on a review of the enrollee-specific HRA for enrollees in long-term facilities. The enrollee s desire and ability to return to a home, or to a noninstitutional housing environment, utilizing home- and communitybased services will be assessed with the goal of returning the enrollee to independent living whenever reasonably possible. Health Net will contract with credentialed SNF and LTC facilities to ensure enrollees have adequate access to qualified LTC facilities.

51 Coordination of Medicare and Medicaid Goals of coordination of Medicare and Medicaid benefits for enrollees are to: Enrollees informed of benefits offered by both programs - Ensure a seamless coordination between medical, behavioral and LTSS benefits - Enrollees informed how to maintain Medicaid eligibility Reduce duplicative services and their fragmented delivery while improving upon our enrollees care and health outcomes Enrollee access to staff that has knowledge of both programs 51

52 Coordination of Medicare and Medicaid cont. Goals of coordination of Medicare and Medicaid benefits for enrollees are to: Clear communication regarding claims and cost-sharing from both programs Enrollees informed of rights to pursue appeals and grievances through both programs Enrollees assisted to access providers that accept Medicare and Medicaid 52

53 Behavioral Health 53

54 If the enrollee is at risk for behavioral health disorders, Health Net s subsidiary, Managed Health Network, Inc. (MHN) will lead the ICT and coordinate the enrollee s treatment. Behavioral Health The delivery of behavioral health services to enrollees will be provided through an integrated network of private, contracted behavioral health specialists and county mental health and substance abuse programs. Through the combined efforts of these delivery systems, Health Net will provide comprehensive behavioral health services for Dual Eligible enrollees to ensure the development of a comprehensive, person-centered Care Plan. 54

55 Behavioral Health Identification If the enrollee has been diagnosed with the following diagnosis/reasons a referral to the behavioral health specialist will be done Eating Disorder admitted to medical unit Catastrophic Illness requiring behavioral health support Needs behavioral health follow-up on discharge from medical admission Complicated detox requiring medical admission Difficult placement due to behavioral health problems Medical Admit with transfer to psychiatric unit Referrals for post discharge substance abuse treatment while still at medical facility Pain management with substance abuse issues Frequent ER visits for behavioral health diagnoses Dementia with acute exacerbation of behavioral / psychological symptoms

56 Behavioral Health If the enrollee s Health Risk Assessment identifies high risk behavioral health needs for any identified enrollee, the Interdisciplinary Care Team (ICT) will include behavioral health specialists who work in partnership with the enrollee and the team. The ICT will provide support to remove access to care barriers by assisting the enrollees to make appointments and to provide transportation assistance when needed. ICT coordination will also include the following directives: Improve access to care by evaluating provider network adequacy, appointment availability statistics and enrollee satisfaction Improve continuity of care and services by coordinating with county behavioral health resources, including: Community-based organizations, and the full range of providers throughout Health Net s system of care Develop a comprehensive behavioral health assessment for any identified enrollee conducted by the behavioral health specialist who is a enrollee of the IDCT 56

57 Behavioral Health Dual Eligible enrollees who have been assessed and identified as needing specialty mental health services, alcohol/drug services, or related specialty consultations, the enrollee will be referred to the available County Mental Health Plans. These may be made by: Enrollee self-referral Primary Care Physician (PCP) and/or Other ICT member, based on evaluation of the enrollee s medical and psychosocial history, current state of health, and request for services by enrollee or enrollee s family. Therefore, MHN participating providers are expected to coordinate referrals to the County Mental Health Plans as necessary and as determined by the ICT. 57

58 Quality Improvement Program Health Plans offering Duals must conduct a Quality Improvement program to monitor health outcomes and implementation of the Model of Care by: Collecting Cal MediConnect specific HEDIS measures Meeting NCQA Dual Structure and Process standards Conducting a Quality Improvement Project (QIP) annually that focuses on improving a clinical or service aspect that is relevant to the Dual population (Preventing Readmissions) Providing a Chronic Care Improvement Program (CCIP) that identifies eligible enrollees, intervenes to improve disease management and evaluates program effectiveness (Cardiovascular Disease) Collecting data to evaluate annually if Cal MediConnect program goals are met

59 Cal MediConnect HEDIS Measures Colorectal Cancer Screening Glaucoma Screening Spirometry Testing for COPD Pharmacotherapy Management of COPD Exacerbation Controlling High Blood Pressure Persistence of Beta-Blockers after Heart Attack Osteoporosis Management Older Women with Fracture All Cause Readmission Antidepressant Medication Management Follow Up after Hospitalization for Mental Illness Annual Monitoring for Persistent Medications Potentially Harmful Drug Disease Interactions Use of High Risk Medications in Elderly Care for Older Adults Medication Reconciliation Post-Discharge Board Certification 59

60 Data Collection Each domain of care is evaluated to identify areas for improvement and if program goals have been met: Health Outcomes Implementation Of Care Plan Access To Care Provider Network Improved Health Status Implementation Of MOC Health Risk Assessment Continuum Of Care Delivery Of Extra Services Integrated Communications 60
