Role of State-level Stakeholders

  • DMAS - Serves as Virginia’s communication and reporting contact with CMS; Facilitates MFP in Virginia and coordinates TCPs (training and agreements) for MFP; Section Q coordination with NFs and LCAs

  • DARS – Serves as the Section Q data collector and reporter to DMAS through the No Wrong Door System; Work with LCAs on training and agreements


Role of community stakeholders

Role of Community Stakeholders

  • Nursing Facility (NF) - initiate the referral

  • Local Contact Agencies (LCA’s)- VA designated Area Agencies on Aging to serve as LCA’s

  • Transition Coordination Provider (TCP) -specific to MFP clients

  • Community Resource Contact – Agencies that may support an individual’s transition to community that may not otherwise be indicated


Nf section q requirements

NF Section Q Requirements

  • Nursing Facility (NF) staff are required to contact their LCA for those residents who express a desire to learn about possible transition back to the community and what care options and supports are available


Nf section q requirements1

NF Section Q Requirements

Nursing Facility (NF):

Q0300A: Identifying Resident’s Overall Goals Established during Assessments

  • Code 1, Expects to be discharged to the community: if the resident (or family or significant other, or guardian or legally authorized representative) indicates an expectation to return home, to assisted living, or to another community setting.

  • Code 2, Expects to remain in this facility: if the resident (or family or significant other, or guardian or legally authorized representative) indicates that he or she expects to remain in the nursing facility.

  • Code 3, Expects to be discharged to another facility/institution: if the resident (or family or significant other, or guardian or legally authorized representative) indicates that he or she expects to be discharged to another nursing facility, rehabilitation or another institution.

  • Code 9, Unknown or uncertain: if the resident is uncertain or if the resident is not able to participate in the discussion or indicate a goal, and family, significant other, or guardian or legally authorized representative do not exist or are not available to participate in the discussion.


Nf section q requirements2

NF Section Q Requirements

Nursing Facility (NF):

Q0400A: Reviewing/Developing/Updating Discharge Plan

  • A review should be conducted for the care plan, the medical record, and clinician progress notes, including but not limited to nursing, physician, social services, and therapy to consider the resident’s discharge planning needs.

  • Resident’s expectation as expressed/communicated should be recorded, whether they are assessed as realistic or no.


Nf section q requirements3

NF Section Q Requirements

Nursing Facility (NF):

Q0500B: Identifying Interest in Returning to the Community

Question: “Do you want to talk to someone about the possibility of leaving this facility and returning to live and receive services in the community?”

Item Q0500B requires that the resident be asked the question directly (unless the resident has said “no” to Q0550A, “Does the resident, or family or significant other or guardian, if resident is unable to respond, want to be asked about returning to the community on all assessments (rather than being asked yearly only on comprehensive assessments).”

  • Code 0, No: if the resident states that he or she does not want to talk to someone about the possibility of returning to the community.

  • Code 1, Yes: if the resident states that he or she does want to talk to someone about the possibility of returning to the community. This code is intended to initiate the Referral Step (Q0600).

  • Code 9, Unknown or uncertain: if the resident cannot understand or respond and the family or significant other is not available to respond on the resident’s behalf and a guardian or legally authorized representative is not available or has not been appointed by the court.


Nf section q requirements4

NF Section Q Requirements

Nursing Facility (NF):

Q0600: Making/Documenting the Referral Process

Question: Has a referral been made to the Local Contact Agency? (Document reasons in resident’s clinical record).

  • Code 0, No: Referral not needed: Resident responded yes to Q0500B but the resident’s discharge planning has been completely developed by the nursing home staff, and there are no additional needs that the SNF/NF cannot arrange for OR if resident responded no to Q0500B.

  • Code 1, No: Referral is or may be needed: Resident responded yes to Q0500B but the referral to the LCA has not been initiated at this time. Care planning and progress notes should indicate the status of discharge planning and why a referral was not initiated.

  • Code 2, Yes: Referral made: Resident responded yes to Q0500B. The facility care planning team was notified and initiated a referral to the local contact agency.


Lca section q requirements

LCA Section Q Requirements

  • Local Contact Agencies (LCAs) respond to NF staff referrals by providing information to residents about available community-based long-term care supports and services, using the Virginia protocol for Section Q within the “Statement of Understanding” found on the DMAS website


Lca section q requirements1

LCA Section Q Requirements

Local Contact Agency (LCA):

  • Responds to fax from NF Section Q referral within two (2) business days using the DMAS-P261, found on the DMAS website

  • Calls or visits with individual, or the individual’s preferred contact, within two (2) business days of confirming receipt of referral from nursing facility

  • Provides information about community living options and available supports and services to the individual/individual’s preferred contact


Lca section q requirements2

  • If applicable, forwards individual’s information to the chosen TCP or community resource within two (2) business days of receiving notification of individual’s decision from NF


Lca section q requirements3

LCA Section Q Requirements

Local Contact Agency (LCA) ~ continued:

  • Documents all actions taken by LCA in No Wrong Door Tools Application

  • Adheres to the confidentiality and exchange of protected health information guidelines as set forth in the Code of Virginia

    * NOTE: LCA’s which are also TCPs should not promote their TCP services over other similar TCP organizations


Referrals to tcp

Referrals to TCP

Faqs from lcas

FAQs from LCAs

  • Should I document all Section Q Referrals or only the ones that are referred onto a TCP?

    All referrals from NFs for Section Q should be recorded in CRIA regardless of the outcome.


Faqs from lcas1

FAQs from LCAs

  • Can I document Section Q Referrals when they are complete?

    No, all referrals from NFs for Section Q should be recorded in CRIA at the time of the referral. This will ensure that the date stamped for the CRIA Encounter reflects the date of the referral. All actions should be recorded as they occur in the closing screen of the Encounter where the Section Q protocol resides. This is the only way to track Section Q referrals that may not come to a close.


Faqs from lcas2

FAQs from LCAs

  • Should I accept referrals from a NF if the individual has been in the NF for less than 90 days?

    Yes. An individual may request information regarding transition from the NF regardless of the length of time they have been in the NF. The 90-day rule applies to their eligibility for MFP but not their participation in the Section Q protocol. Anytime an LCA receives a Section Q referral from an NF, the LCA should implement and document the protocol.


Faqs from lcas3

FAQs from LCAs

  • Should I accept referrals for an individual under age 60 or for an individual who is private pay?

    Yes. The LCA should accept Section Q referrals regardless of age or payor source.


Faqs from lcas4

FAQs from LCAs

  • What should the LCA do if they make a referral to a TCP and do not receive confirmation?

    The LCA should document in the NWD system when the referral was made (regardless of whether it is made electronically or by fax). If the LCA does not receive confirmation within 1 working day, the LCA should call the TCP to confirm receipt (and document confirmation in the NWD system, prior to closing the Encounter).


Faqs from lcas5

FAQs from LCAs

  • What should the LCA do when the individual contacts the LCA to say that they have not heard from the TCP?

    Once the TCP has confirmed receipt of referral, the LCA should finalize documentation in the NWD System and close the Encounter. Any concerns after the Encounter is closed, regarding the individual, the NF or the TCP should be shared with the MFP Coordinator at DMAS, who will follow-up with the NF and/or the TCP.


Faqs from lcas6

FAQs from LCAs

  • What should the LCA do if the NF goes directly to the TCP without including the LCA in the process?

    Technically, as long as the individual is receiving the support they need to effectively transition, it does not matter whether or not the LCA is involved. In fact, if the NF and the individual have a transition plan in place through the discharge process, the referral to the LCA may not be necessary. However, the NF and the TCP both have reporting requirements related to the individual so that transition will be tracked.
