      • Signing an agreement delineating responsibilities of a health home,
      • Completing a TransforMed self-assessment (if not already PCMH recognized),
      • Achieve PCMH recognition within first year of operation. (providers that have submitted application with first 12 months and are pending a decision will have an extension)

Serious and Persistent Mental Health Condition

integrated health home ihh
Integrated Health Home (IHH)
  • An IHH ensures quality management of both physical and behavioral health care needs through a partnership of behavioral and physical health care providers, coordination of a broad set of services and supports, and measurable improvement in health outcomes.
  • Magellan Health Services is both managing and providing program level support to IHHs established in Iowa.

Bussell 10

why integrate behavioral health and physical health care
Why Integrate Behavioral Health and Physical Health Care?
  • People with serious mental illness often have chronic physical health conditions.
  • Many people with serious mental illness often do not receive the preventive or physical health care services they need.
  • Integrating services to treat both can provide the best outcomes for individuals being served.
  • Health care reform encourages integrated care.

Iowa Care Program - History
  • IowaCare program operates under an 1115 Waiver and provides a limited set of benefits to members otherwise uninsured.
  • Program started in 2005 with only two providers in the network.
  • Members had to travel great distances to receive medical care and typically wait months before being seen by a specialist.

Iowa Care Medical Home Program
  • On October 1, 2010, the IowaCare network expanded to include 2 FQHCs and the implementation of a Medical Home model for IowaCare members.

iowacare population in 2014
IowaCare Population in 2014
  • It is expected that in 2014, most of the IowaCare population will be full Medicaid Eligible.
  • The primary care services this population is receiving now through the IowaCare Medical Home program is managing the population before they enter into full Medicaid Benefits.
  • The same IowaCare Medical Home providers will likely be Health Home providers for the Medicaid Population.

iowacare progress report1
IowaCare Progress Report
  • Non-emergent care wait times vary from medical home to medical home, using the standard measurement of the 3rd next available appointment, wait times varies from 1 week to 11 weeks.
  • Referral tracking continues to be a problem within the Medical Home network. Access to referral data has been challenging.
    • Interpretations of HIPPA regulations
    • The lack of stable or well established HIT connections between the medical homes and participating hospitals hinders communication for referrals, discharges and transfers of care data

Department of Human Services

Bussell 18

iowacare other lessons
IowaCare - Other Lessons
  • More work needs to be done to ready a practice for an assigned mass of members needing care all on the same day
  • Attention is needed to understand the higher medical needs of this population before rolling out to other practices
  • Referral protocols and communication lines should be pre-established and understood
