role of regional care collaborative organizations rccos
Role of Regional Care Collaborative Organizations (RCCOs)
  • CO divided into seven RCCOs
    • Responsible for care coordination/practice support
    • Develop provider networks/contract with Primary Care Medical Providers (PCMP)
    • Facilitate referral process
    • Provide network and care coordination data to the Department and/or SDAC

role of primary care medical providers pcmps
Role of Primary Care Medical Providers (PCMPs)
  • Primary Care Medical Providers (PCMPs) are a key part of the success of
  • the ACC. The PCMP acts as a medical home and coordinates a client's
  • health needs across specialties and along the continuum of care.
  • In addition to the fee-for-service payments for the medical services supplied,
  • PCMPs receive a per-member-per-month (PMPM) for the medical home
  • services they provide.
  • Eligible providers can participate as PCMPs in the ACC at any time. PCMPs
  • sign a contract with the State and with the RCCO.

initial program results
Initial Program Results
  • In the ACC’s first year, the Department reported that the program returned nearly $3
  • million to state & federal taxpayers.
  • The Departmentidentified three key performance indicators (KPIs) to measure
  • improvement among those clients enrolled in the ACC, compared to clients not yet enrolled:
  • Hospital Readmissions: 8.6% greater reduction among ACC clients
  • Emergency Room Utilization…Overall, there was a 1% increase among Medicaid clients, but only a .23% increase among ACC enrollees
  • High Cost Imaging…3.3% greater decrease among ACC clients
  • To-date, three rounds of incentive payments have been issued (February, May, & August 2013). In Region 1, we have met our targets on 2 of the 3 KPIs: 30-Day Readmissions & High Cost Imaging in each of these quarters.
current program status
Current Program Status
  • In the ACC’s first year, the Department reported that the program returned nearly $3 million to the State General Fund.
  • Currently, about half of all Medicaid recipients in Colorado are enrolled in the ACC, with plans to enroll entire CO Medicaid population by 2015.
  • New KPI, Well Child Visits added in July 2013, based upon CMS-416 criteria
  • Preparations underway to include Full-Benefit Medicare/Medicaid Enrollees in ACC.
  • Preparing for Medicaid Expansion – January 1, 2014.
aca medicaid expansion
ACA Medicaid Expansion
  • SB 13-200 legislation amends the CO Health Care Affordability Act to cover additional low-income Coloradans by changing the Medicaid eligibility level from 100% to 133%* of the FPL.
    • $30,657 per year for a family of four
    • $14,856 per year for an individual
  • Up to 160,000 Coloradans could gain access to care beginning January 1, 2014
  • “Colorado Medicaid will soon become the second largest payer in the state because of
  • the ACA Expansion…. The governor’s State of Health report notes, ‘The ACC infrastructure,
  • with its focus on client-centered care and regional solutions, is the foundation of the Medicaid
  • program in Colorado and will be the vehicle for delivery and payment reforms in Colorado
  • Medicaid.’”**
  • *Federal law allows for a 5 percent income disregard so those earning up to 138% FPL may be eligible.
