Care Select Member Enrollment Process

Member letter sent

Does Member have a PMP?

Yes

Member enrolled in PMP’s CMO

Member auto-assigned to CMO and PMP

No

Yes

No

Did member choose a PMP and CMO?

Enrollment Broker (MAXIMUS) begins to call members to answer questions and help enroll

* If Primary Medical Provider (PMP) is in both plans, member will choose a plan or be auto-assigned to a plan.

slide7

The Primary Medical Provider (PMP)

  • What is a PMP and why is having one so important?
    • Linked to each Care Select member as the member’s medical home
    • Connects primary and specialty health care
      • Provides referrals to specialists via telephone or in writing
    • Works with member and care manager to improve the health of the member
  • Who can be a PMP?
    • Primary care physicians
      • i.e. family practice, general practice, internist, pediatrician, and OB/GYN
    • Specialists
slide8

The Primary Medical Provider (PMP)

  • How does a PMP enroll?
    • PMPs in Care Select may contract with one or both CMOs.
  • Why are there two CMOs?
    • IHCP wants to give both members and providers a choice.
  • How does this affect a member’s choice between CMOs?
    • The member is enrolled in the CMO with which his or her PMP is contracted.
    • Members with no prior PMP linkage will receive a letter and call from the enrollment broker to assist in choosing a PMP.
    • Members can change PMPs by contacting their CMO or Maximus.
    • Those who do not choose a PMP get auto-assigned to one.
slide9

Certification Code Policy

The Care Select PMP is responsible for providing and/or overseeing a member’s care during the time the member is linked to that PMP through the PMP assignment process.

The PMP agrees to provide the necessary primary and preventive health services directly to their assigned members or agrees to refer the member to another health care provider for those services undeliverable by the PMP.

Each Care Select PMP is assigned a cert code on a quarterly basis. This code, in addition to the PMP’s National Provider Identifier (NPI) is needed to allow a specialist or another provider’s claims to be paid when appropriate

certification code policy
Certification Code Policy

Policy Description Statement:

  • While it is always preferable that the assigned PMP authorize treatment and provide their NPI and cert code, there may be occasions when this is not possible.
  • Appropriate and designated CMO staff will need to provide this information to another health care provider in order to allow the Care Select member access to appropriate and timely care
  • The following are specific circumstances in which designated CMO staff may release to another health care provider a member’s PMP’s cert code and NPI before or after a service has been rendered as approved by the State:
certification code policy11
Certification Code Policy

Exceptions

  • PMP change is still pending after a previously auto-assigned member has selected a new PMP
  • Death of PMP
  • PMP moves out of the region without proper notification to the program
  • Newly transitioned members into the program (i.e. wards and foster children) who are in need of treatment (i.e. EPSDT) within the first sixty (60) days of enrollment
  • Auto-assigned member lives in an underserved area and is unable to select a PMP from that area
  • Other urgent, emergent, or ongoing issues (i.e. dialysis or emergent ER admission) where the member is unable to access necessary services and the assigned PMP is unwilling or unable to provide services or the appropriate referral
right choices referral process formerly known as restricted card program
Right Choices Referral Processformerly known as Restricted Card Program
  • ADVANTAGE Health Solutions identifies and monitors individuals in both ADVANTAGE Care Select and the Traditional or fee-for-service Medicaid Program
  • MDwise Care Select identifies and monitors individuals in the MDwise Care Select Program
  • This includes members who have shown a pattern of potential mis - utilization or over - utilization of services

The RCP is:

  • Not a loss of benefits
  • Not a reduction in benefits
  • Not punitive action, but is a legal action

Note: Members are still eligible for all medically necessary IHCP services. However, those services must be ordered or authorized in writing by the member’s assigned PMP

right choices referral process
Right Choices Referral Process

The RCP identifies members appropriate for assignment and subsequent “lock-in” to:

    • one Primary Care Physician (PCP)
    • one pharmacy and
    • one hospital

The RCP Program applies to both members in Traditional Medicaid and Indiana Care Select

  • Specialty providers receive written authorization from the PMP
  • The CMO’s add those specialists to the member’s provider list in order for the specialty provider to be reimbursed
right choices referral process14
Right Choices Referral Process

The PMP manages the member’s care and determines whether a member requires evaluation or treatment by a specialty provider

  • Referrals are required by the PMP for most specialty medical providers (except self referral services)
  • Referrals should be based on medical necessity and not solely on the desire of the member to see a specialist
  • Emergency services for life threatening or life altering conditions are available at any hospital, but non-emergency services require a referral from the PMP
right choices referral process15
Right Choices Referral Process

Adding Providers to a Right Choices Member’s Lock In List

  • Additional providers may be locked-in, either short-term or on an ongoing basis, if the PMP sends a written referral.
  • Providers may be locked-in for one specified date of service or for any defined duration of time, up to one year.

When a Referral is Not Necessary: Self Referral

Behavioral health (except prescriptions)

Chiropractic services

Dental services (except prescriptions)

Diabetes self-management services

Family planning services

HIV/AIDS targeted case management

Home health care

Hospice

Podiatric services (except prescriptions)

Transportation

Right Choices Referral Process

Referral Guidelines for the PMP

  • Referrals must be faxed or mailed
  • Referrals may be handwritten on letterhead or a prescription pad, however, they must include the following information:
    • IHCP member’s name
    • IHCP member’s RID
    • First and last name and specialty of the physician to whom the member is being referred
    • Primary lock-in physician’s signature (not that of a staff member)
    • Date and duration of referral

Step 3.

Coordinate Care

Step 2.

Design Care Plan

Step 1: Assess Member Needs
  • Identify high risk members through medical claims history/risk stratification
  • Identify and reach out to member’s family or facility case manager
  • Share existing assessments/care plans to avoid duplicative assessment questions or interventions
  • Conduct initial interview with member or caregiver
    • Assign care management Level 1-4
    • Identify the need for more comprehensive medical, behavioral, psychosocial, and/or functional assessments
    • Identify immediate needs and implement immediate interventions if needed
    • Members are reassessed and care plans updated as needed (at least annually)
stratification
Stratification

Once the assessments are complete, the member is stratified into one of four need groups

  • Level one – minimum provided to all Care Select members
  • Level two – all level one services plus more support/guidance
  • Level three – all level one and two services plus high level support as determined by risk issues related to health
  • Level four – all level one, two and three services plus support related to require most services and often face crisis situations

Note: all Care Select members who are pregnant or are seriously mentally ill are automatically placed into Level two and members can be re-stratified at anytime depending on condition and need

member support services
Member Support Services

The CMO care management teams are engaged in the provider community in order to create a well rounded approach to providing member support, care plan development and improved treatment outcomes. The CMOs currently partner with several providers to achieve these goals:

  • Community Mental Health Centers (CMHCs) – incorporate behavioral health treatment plans into the member’s overall plan or care AND assist the CMHC in accessing physical health services (i.e. primary care and dental services) for their Care Select population
  • Developmentally Disabled (DD) Waiver Providers – incorporate the member’s plan of care developed by the Waiver case manager as well as non DD Waiver provider training materials to educate PMPs on best practices for working with the DD population AND assist the DD Waiver provider in accessing physical health services (i.e. primary care, dental, and behavioral) for their Care Select population
member support services28
Member Support Services
  • Hospitals – obtaining notification from hospitals that they are about to discharge a Care Select member allows the care manager to work to ensure the member has access to needed post – inpatient services that reduce the chance of another inpatient admit
  • Dental – informing our members on the importance of getting dental care and reminding those, by mail, if they have not seen the dentist within the calendar year
  • Social Services – supporting members with social crisis (i.e. eviction, utilities disconnection) and connecting pregnant members with pregnancy related services (i.e. WIC, parenting classes, etc..)
care coordination conferences
Care Coordination Conferences

The CMOs will coordinate with its Care Select PMPs to perform care coordination conferences to review a member’s plan of care and the progress with that plan of care.

Care Coordination Conference:

  • is a covered benefit for Indiana Care Select Program members assigned PMP
  • can occur up to twice per member per rolling calendar year
  • will be scheduled on a semi annual basis
  • can be held in person at the PMP’s office or via phone conference
  • is a billable service (not applicable to FQHC/RHC providers)
care coordination conference
Care Coordination Conference

Care Coordination Conference Purpose:

  • open communication and coordination between all healthcare providers
  • to provide a forum for PMPs to interact directly with our care management teams
  • discuss the care plans of your patients and collaboratively decide how we can effectively facilitate the management of your patients

“We realize that our members often require complex medical care from a variety of sources, which often extend beyond the confines of your office. Our goal in care management is to coordinate the efforts of the healthcare team with other participating government, social and community agencies working together on behalf of the patient.” – Indiana Care Select Program CMO Care Management Departments

care coordination conference32
Care Coordination Conference

How to Schedule/Plan for the Care Coordination Conference:

MDwise Care Select Program

  • Will notify each MDwise PMP by mail or phone, when it is time to schedule the conference
  • Mailing will include a member checklist form and member’s care plan where the PMP will (Please note: Providers can sign up for CareConnect and access each member’s plan of care there rather than receiving a mailed care plan):

      • Note any additional information on the checklist
    • Fax, Email, or direct mail the member checklist form back to MDwise prior to scheduled date of conference
  • Each conference will last no longer than 60 minutes and can be conducted via phone or an on site visit by request (pending availability)
care coordination conference33
Care Coordination Conference

How to Bill for Care Coordination Conferences

  • PMPs, or their designated nurse practitioner (NP) or physician assistant (PA) who works for the PMP or PMP’s employer such as a group or clinic are eligible to receive reimbursement from Indiana Health Coverage Programs (IHCP) for their participation in the care coordination conferences
  • Both the CMO and the PMP will be responsible for checking eligibility on the date of the care coordination conference
  • Submit claims for members discussed during the care coordination conferences to EDS as with all other covered Care Select services
care coordination conference34
Care Coordination Conference

How to Bill for Care Coordination Conferences (continued)

  • No prior authorization is required for care coordination conferences
  • Care coordination conferences are carved out of the Third Party Liability requirements for Care Select so providers do not need to submit claims for these services to the member’s private insurance company prior to submitting them to EDS for reimbursement
  • Submit claims on a CMS – 1500 claim form using the CMS – 1500 paper claim format found in Chapter 8, Section 4 of the IHCP Provider Manual. Providers may also submit these claims electronically using their proprietary software or using EDS’s web interChange
care coordination conference35
Care Coordination Conference

How to Bill for Care Coordination Conferences (continued)

  • The primary diagnosis providers should use when billing for care coordination conferences is either the member’s last known diagnosis related to the member’s disease state or V70.9
  • All PMPs, or NPs must be linked to the billing group
  • The CMO and provider will identify via the CMO’s bi-annual Care Coordination Conference Checklist, potential members to be reviewed and discussed during the conference. If neither the PMP nor the CMO have issues resulting in a discussion of the member’s plan of care, the provider cannot bill for a care coordination conference for that member
care coordination conference36
Care Coordination Conference

How to Bill for Care Coordination Conferences (continued)

  • The Bi-annual Care Conferences Checklist verifies the PMP’s review regarding the plan of care. Providers are required to keep a copy of the Bi-annual Care Conferences Checklist for auditing and documentation purposes
  • PMPs are limited to billing up to two care coordination conferences per member per rolling calendar year
  • The service code to be used to identify billing for care coordination conferences for each Care Select member is 99211 SC – “Office or other outpatient visit for the evaluation and management of an established patient.” Note: Please refer to both IHCP Bulletins BT200723 & BT200804 for further details
care coordination conference37
Care Coordination Conference

How to Bill for Care Coordination Conferences (cont.)

  • If the PMP’s NP is in the same group or clinic as the PMP who performs the care coordination conference with the member’s CMO care manager, the NP’s IHCP provider number is appended to 99211 SC. If the NP is not enrolled in the IHCP, providers must append modifier SA
  • Services for NPs not linked to the PMP’s clinic or group will be denied because that practitioner does not participate in the same group or clinic as the member’s PMP and it will be assumed that those practitioners have no practical experience with that member and are not in a position to discuss that member’s plan of care
care coordination conference38
Care Coordination Conference

How to Bill for Care Coordination Conferences (cont.)

  • PAs cannot enroll in the IHCP, but can participate in the care coordination conference and be reimbursed. The care coordination service code 99211 SC must be billed along modifier HN or HO (use the modifier that corresponds to the PA’s education level)
  • The PMP or the PMP’s NP or PA will be reimbursed by the IHCP at a rate of $40 per member per conference. PMPs, or their NP/PA who refuse to participate or do not attend a scheduled care coordination conference cannot bill the IHCP for that conference
healthcare effectiveness data and information set hedis
Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS)
  • The Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) is a widely used set of performance measures in the managed care industry, developed and maintained by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).
  • Set of standardized performance measures based on evidenced-based best practice
  • HEDIS was designed to allow consumers to compare health plan performance to other plans and to national or regional benchmarks.
  • The Indiana Care Select CMO’s both use HEDIS or HEDIS-like measures to assess the quality outcomes for Indiana Care Select members.
