what is a regional behavioral health organization
What is a Regional Behavioral Health Organization?

And what will they be doing?

What are BHOs?  BHOs are entities with experience and demonstrated expertise managing behavioral health services for individuals with substance use and serious mental illness. In January 2011 Governor Cuomo created a Medicaid Redesign Team to find ways to increase quality and efficiency in the Medicaid program and reduce cost.  One of the recommendations enacted into law gives the Commissioners of the Office of Mental Health (OMH) and the Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) the authority to contract jointly with Managed Behavioral Health Organizations.  BHOs are entities with experience and demonstrated expertise managing behavioral health services for individuals with substance use and serious mental illness.

What will BHOs do?  Phase 1 BHOs will monitor inpatient behavioral health services within their regions for Medicaid-enrolled individuals whose inpatient behavioral health services are not covered by (i.e., “carved out” of) a Medicaid Managed Care plan and who also are not enrolled in Medicare.  In most cases, Phase I BHOs will begin operations in the fall of 2011 and will be fully implemented by January 2012. Phase 2 BHOs will begin in 2013 and will include some form of risk-bearing Medicaid managed care for adults and children with serious mental health issues or substance use disorders.

what will a bho be doing
What will a BHO be doing?

The work of the BHO is broken into four tasks

Task 1 – Concurrent review of Inpatient Admissions, Monitoring of Discharge Planning and Post Discharge Services

Task 2 – Tracking of Children with SED

Task 3 – Provider Profiling

Task 4 – Facilitation of Cross System Linkages

NYCCP will be fully operational by Jan 1, 2012 in the Western Region

what admissions will the bho be responsible for reviewing
What admissions will the BHO be responsible for reviewing?

Task 1

BHOs will review the following populations:

All fee-for-service admissions to OMH-licensed psychiatric units (all ages) in general hospitals (Article 28 hospitals).

Fee-for-service children and youth admitted to OMH licensed private psychiatric hospitals (Article 31 hospitals).

Fee-for-service direct admissions to OMH State-operated children’s psychiatric centers or children’s units of psychiatric centers.

Fee-for-service OASAS Certified Part 816 Inpatient Detoxification Services (Article 28/32).

Fee-for-service OASAS certified hospital (Article 28/32) or freestanding (Article 32 only) Part 818 Chemical Dependence Inpatient Rehabilitation Services.

the bho process
The BHO Process

Task 1 - Notice of Admission / Initial and Concurrent Review

Within 24 hours of admission the facility will notify NYCCP/Beacon of the recipients admission.

Notification will be done electronically via the secure online Beacon Notice of Admission (NOA) tool or via telephone.

Electronic notification will speed the process for the providers, cutting down on phone wait time and information exchange and will also allow for the electronic submission of discharge information.

The admission is a notification and not a clinical review of the recipients condition.

Following the notice of admission Beacon will generate a Comprehensive Member Utilization Profile (CMUP) Report that will be shared with the admitting provider.

CMUP will include information on the recipients past physical, behavioral, and pharmacy treatment history.

Within 72 hours of the recipients admission Beacon will conduct the initial clinical review with the provider.

Purpose of the review is to assess the recipients current clinical status against the Beacon level of care criteria, discuss the treatment plan, and begin discharge planning if appropriate.

Additional reviews will be scheduled at a frequency that makes clinical sense based on the recipients condition and treatment plan.

The BHO Process cont.

Task 1 - Initial and Concurrent Review

Application of Level of Care Criteria

All reviews will be conducted against the Beacon Level of Care (LOC) Criteria and medical necessity.

Beacon Utilization Review (UR) Clinicians will assess a recipients clinical presentation against the LOC criteria to determine if continued stay is warranted at the current level of care. All concurrent reviews are based on the severity and complexity of the recipient’s condition. A clinical evaluation for medical necessity is conducted at each concurrent review as well as a determination for when the next review will be due. Concurrent reviews are not routinely conducted on a daily basis.

If the recipient does not meet the LOC criteria or the provider and UR Clinician can not reach agreement on the continued course of treatment the case will be forwarded to a Beacon Physician Advisor (PA). The Beacon PA reviews all the information collected by the UR Clinician. If there is not enough information to make a decision, s/he may request additional documents and/or contact the requestor or other party for further information.

the bho process cont1
The BHO Process cont.

Task 1 - Notices

Notice of Preliminary Finding

If the Beacon PA disapproves the request, Beacon will verbally furnish the provider with a Notice of Preliminary Finding.

During this notice the Provider will be informed that they have the right to a reconsideration and to submit additional information to support the continued stay at the current LOC within 24 hours.

Notice of Clinical Determination

If the recipient is not discharged within 48 hours of the Notice of Preliminary Finding, or the notice that the Beacon continues to disagree with the reconsideration request; Beacon will issue a formal Notice of Clinical Determination indicating such determination and its clinical basis. Beacon will forward such Notice of Clinical Determination to the provider and to the Offices.

There is no financial impact to the determination and if the provider disagrees with the BHO, they may continue to treat the patient and receive Medicaid payment, documenting their reasons for medical necessity in the patient’s records.

the bho process cont2
The BHO Process cont.

Task 1 - Discharge Planning / Review and Support

Beacon will be responsible for reviewing and assessing the discharge planning activities of providers, including key elements such as:

• The status of the individual and the expected length of stay.

• The content of the treatment plan.

• The anticipated discharge date.

• The completion of assessments of physical and Behavioral Health needs with referrals as needed to meet the needs identified.

• Contact with case management if applicable.

• Assessment of the need for case management.

• Assessment of need for post-discharge treatment; whether post-discharge physical or behavioral health services will be required and whether contact has been made with outpatient providers of such services to schedule first appointments for such services.

• Assessment of housing status, including but not limited to the housing status of the individual at the time of admission and the anticipated status upon discharge.

• Assessment of consumer/family participation. (Did the consumer/family (for individuals under the age of 18) have substantial involvement in the development of the discharge plan? )

• Assessment of post-discharge linkage of children with other service systems, e.g., juvenile justice, education, child welfare.

the bho process cont3

Task 1 - Discharge Planning / Review and Support

Role of the Beacon Integrated Care Coordinator (ICC) and Multi-System Transition of Care (MSTC) Specialists

Beacon will utilize ICC’s and MSTC Specialists to review and support discharge planning efforts of the providers.

Facilitate/encourage communication between the individual’s service providers.

Supplement the treatment team’s knowledge about community resources.

Support to the Discharge Planner and treatment team; e.g.: complete a SPOA application as necessary, assist w/coordination with HMO and links to networks.

Post discharge support via collaboration with outpatient providers to address barriers to successful implementation of the discharge plan (including support for adherence to medication regimen, assistance in arranging for transportation, etc.)

Gather Information regarding linkage.

Link with applicable Medicaid Managed Care Organization, Health Homes or other physical health providers involved in the recipients care.

sed tracking
SED Tracking

Task 2

The goal of the SED tracking task is to provide The Offices with a better understanding of the clinical conditions of children diagnosed as having a Serious Emotional Disturbance (SED).

OMH licensed clinics that have been designated as Specialty Clinics will be required to notify the BHO of each new MMC child diagnosed as having a Serious Emotional Disturbance.

The BHO will track and report to OMH the number of children so diagnosed. Such report will classify such data by clinic, diagnosis, functional limitations identified, and other relevant demographic information.

Notification will occur through the online Beacon eServices portal.

Providers will have the ability to enter individual cases or submit batch uploads for multiple cases.

Beacon/NYCCP will report data to The Offices on a quarterly basis.

the bho process cont4
The BHO Process cont.

Task 3 - Provider and System Profiling

Develop Provider Profile Reports, based on data from Task 1 activities and Medicaid data, related to:

Characteristics, timeliness and completeness of discharge plans.

Extent and effectiveness of coordination between inpatient and outpatient health and behavioral health providers, case managers and Health Homes designated by the Department of Health in disseminating and implementing discharge plans.

Interactions between the BHO and the provider.

Description of the population admitted to inpatient along key dimensions, including culture, housing, diagnoses.

Episode management – interaction between the inpatient providers, the BHO and other providers/significant others in effectively managing the episode of care.

Inpatient length of stay, including long lengths of stay due to availability of needed resources.

Inpatient outlier report, with analysis of factors potentially impacting length of stay, such as participation in discharge planning by the individual, family, and outpatient providers, and use of peer services/supports.

Level and timeliness of engagement in services post discharge, by inpatient provider and outpatient provider.

SPOA engagement report.

Inpatient readmission report, overall and within defined sub-groups.
