2 St. Peter's Behavioral Health Management Admission Review Team ART INTRODUCTION St. Peter s Hospital began in 1869 as a 22-bed hospital and has evolved into St. Peter s Health Care Services, a comprehensive health care system. With 4,500 employees, St. Peter s is the New York State Capital Region s fourth-largest employer. On any given day, nearly 4,000 persons are helped by St. Peter s Health Care Services. The organization has earned national and state honors for its high-quality, compassionate care. St. Peter's Behavioral Health Management, part of the Behavioral Health Department of St. Peter s Hospital, embraces the Valves In Practice philosophy of St. Peter s Health Care Services with the 7 core values of Compassion, Reverance for each person, Community, Hospitality, Excellence, Integrity, and Courage. The New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) is implementing Title 14 NYCRR Part 817 regulations for the delivery of quality Chemical Dependence Residential Rehabilitation Services for Youth (RRSY) beginning in the year The development of this service is largely based on Inpatient Psychiatric Facility Services for Individuals under 21 Years of Age, a federal Medicaid service category. A major Federaloperating requirement for this service category is that all Medicaid eligible youth are certified for clinical appropriateness in order to maximize treatment accessibility and effectiveness. OASAS has chosen to meet this requirement with an Admission Review Team (ART), and St. Peter's Behavioral Health Management has contracted with OASAS to develop and administer the ART. The ART consists of a physician, a Certified Social Worker, and a New York State Credentialed Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselor (CASAC). These professionals examine Pre-Admission Review forms that are submitted by RRSY providers. The provider, by completing an ART Pre-Admission Review form, attests that the admission criteria has been fulfilled and documentation to substantiate each criteria checked yes has been made in a written record. The ART then completes the process with written certification that the prospective patient can be admitted to the RRSY level of treatment. Thus, the ART certifies that each Medicaid eligible youth admitted to an RRSY meets the admission criteria delineated in Section of Part 817 regulations as attested by the RRSY provider. 6/2007

3 St. Peter's Behavioral Health Management Admission Review Team ART CERTIFICATION A certification by ART is required prior to a prospective patient s admission into a RRSY facility. The pre-admission certification can only be issued by ART. Certification: A certification issued by ART will be valid for the date of admission, or for 30 days from the date the Pre-Admission Review is deemed to have been received by ART if the date of admission is blank on the first page of the Pre-Admission Review. When a prospective patient is certified and admission does not occur within 30 days, which occurs due to any number of reasons, a complete Pre-Admission Review form must be resubmitted. Decertification: The prospective patient could have some factors that change and the certification would be no longer valid. For example, The ART is notified, or independently determines, that the youth has been placed in another appropriate setting and placement in an RRSY is no longer needed. The youth is receiving appropriate clinical services. A parent or legal guardian no longer desires the prospective patient s admission to residential rehabilitation. The clinical condition has deteriorated such that admission to a RRSY within a period of 30 days would not be appropriate. Admission criteria are no longer met. Emergency Admission: Part 817 allows that circumstances may be present which could result in a youth s emergency admission to a RRSY without prior approval from the ART. The prospective patient must meet the first four (4) admission criteria, in addition to the presence of one of the following: 1) The youth has demonstrated an inability to abstain outside of a structured 24-hour setting; or 2) The youth is unable to access transitional services in the community; or 3) The youth is without appropriate housing. Under no circumstances should a youth be admitted on an emergency basis or otherwise if they are in medical or psychiatric crisis, or if in need of medically necessary withdrawal services.

4 Legal Mandates: The ART certification utilizes medical and clinical standards certifying conformity to medical necessity criteria. Civil and court determined status recommendations do not necessarily conform to medical necessity and do not replace ART certification. An emergency admission does not pre-empt certification by ART. The ART process remains unchanged and certification is needed within 2 business days. Providers are cautioned that an ART determination could be made to deny a request for certification. Thus, if the facility chooses to admit a Medicaid eligible youth under an emergency admission or due to a legal mandate and ART denies the request for certification, the facility may not be paid by Medicaid. ART Approvals for Court Ordered Admissions Question: What ART approvals must be received for court ordered admissions? Answer: To ensure compliance with the Federal ART requirement for all active Medicaid admissions, the RRSY must, within 48 hours, submit the court ordered admission to the ART for review and certification. However, the RRSY is not obligated to admit court ordered patients who do not meet the RRSY admission criteria. Therefore, if, during the initial admission process, the RRSY assesses the court ordered patient and determines they are not appropriate for RRSY services, the RRSY should immediately contact the court and discuss alternative treatment arrangements. Backdated Certifications: Providers will need to note on the application if the patient has already been admitted to the RRSY so that the start date on the certification is the same as the date the patient was admitted to the RRSY. Part 817 clearly states that the ART certification process is required prior to admission. Thus, post-admission certifications are not encouraged, but when necessary the certification date can be backdated as much as thirty (30) calendar days. OASAS will be notified regarding RRSY providers who habitually request backdated certifications. The above does not apply to programs within the first month of a program s conversion to RRSY. Newly Converting RRSY Programs: The date of the program s conversion is considered the Date Approved for Admission because Medicaid will pay the RRSY rate from the conversion date and forward. The actual date of an existing patient s admission is not used by the newly converted RRSY. Example: A patient s actual date of admission is 02/15/2008. The program s conversion to an RRSY is officially 03/01/2008. The date of admission for ART s purposes is 03/01/2008 and should be noted as such on page one of the Pre-Admission Review form. Every current patient on active Medicaid on the date of a program s conversion must go through ART.

5 St. Peter's Behavioral Health Management Admission Review Team ART COMPLETING THE ART PRE-ADMISSION REVIEW FOR ADMISSIONS TO RESIDENTIAL REHABILITATION SERVICES FOR YOUTH A prospective patient presenting for admittance to a RRSY facility is assessed by the RRSY facility to determine if the youth is appropriate for chemical dependence services. A qualified health professional or other clinical staff under the supervision of a qualified health professional, conducts the assessment. All Medicaid eligible youth are required to be certified by ART in order to have Medicaid as the payer of RRSY. ART requires a complete Pre-Admission Review form in order to determine that a certification can be issued. The signed ART Pre-Admission Review form is an attestation that information supporting the yes statements has been documented in the prospective patient s medical record. Additional documentation may be requested by ART but should not be included with the initial Pre-Admission Review form. The ART Pre-Admission Review form must be signed and dated by a qualified health professional. The responses shall be based upon documents and information provided by the prospective patient. Information obtained shall also be based on written and verbal reports from other providers and through a face-to-face contact with the prospective patient. A responsible family member or significant other may also provide information. Sources of information must be documented in the individual medical record, which may be subject to an audit by Medicaid at a future date. To assist RRSY facilities in the process of medical record documentation, a detailed presentation of information to be collected by the staff conducting the assessment is provided in this section. Now that your facility has completed the OASAS conversion process to become a RRSY, it may be a good time to review forms and modify the information you have typically collected. A Medical Record Documentation Check List Summary is included in another section of the Provider Information. The Admission Review Team trusts this will be helpful. 02/01/2008 1

The only line that can be left blank in those sections may be the patient s date of admission if the prospective patient has not yet been admitted. (Please see the CERTIFICATION section for additional information regarding the date of admission.) It is most desired that a youth be a Medicaid-card carrier. However, prospective patients with pending, inactive, or unknown Medicaid status will be certified. Please indicate the prospective patient s Medicaid status on the line labeled Medicaid ID #. It is the RRSY s responsibility to ensure the patient has active Medicaid insurance for the purpose of billing Medicaid. Managed Care-Medicaid youth will be certified. However, the youth needs to be carvedout from Managed Care by the RRSY so that Medicaid can pay for residential services. Facilities may need to discuss this issue with Local Departments of Social Services to develop a co-operative process to remove youth from Managed Care and convert to straight Medicaid. The Admission Review Team Action section, including the narrative summary section, is for the use of the ART. 02/01/2008 2

12 St. Peter's Behavioral Health Management Admission Review Team ART TIMEFRAME STANDARDS FOR DETERMINATIONS The ART will make every effort to complete the determination process and provide notification of the determination to the RRSY provider within 48 hours of receipt of a complete Pre-Admission Review form. Communication of the determination will be in writing, transmitted via fax, with the issuance of either a certification letter or a denial letter. 1) Should there be a conflicting determination amongst the three ART members; the ART may take an additional 24 hours to reach a consensus in order to deliver a determination. ART team members may ask the provider for additional information. Any additional information submitted will need to be in writing. 2) ART may determine information presented as incomplete or not accurate. Additional information or clarity of information may be requested from the RRSY provider; and until that written information is received to the satisfaction of the ART, the Pre-Admission Review form will be considered incomplete. An incomplete Pre- Admission Review form will need to be completed within 48 hours of the original date of receipt. Following the receipt of the additional information, a determination will be made within 48 hours. 3) Pre-Admission Review forms, as well as any additional information, received on or after 3:00 PM on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday will be logged-in as received at 9:00 AM on the next normal business day. 4) Pre-Admission Review forms received on and after 12 noon on Fridays and the day before Holidays, as well as any Pre-Admission Review form received during the weekend or on a holiday (New Years day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving day, Christmas day) will be logged-in as received at 9:00 AM on the next normal business day. There is a three-year schedule, beginning in 2007, for OASAS to convert 21 facilities to be RRSY providers in New York State. Some facilities may have several existing Medicaid Youth in their programs that will need to be certified as soon as the facility s conversion is complete. In those instances, it may take ART up to two weeks to complete the certification process.

13 St. Peter's Behavioral Health Management Admission Review Team ART SECOND REVIEW (Appeals) A provider may request a second review of a Pre-Admission Review when an adverse determination is made by the Admission Review Team. The second review request must be made within the timeframe specified in the denial letter issued to the provider. 1. When the ART has made a denial determination for certification requested for a youth by a RRSY provider, a denial letter with specific rationale is sent to the provider advising the RRSY provider of the denial. Instructions are stated in the denial letter if the provider wishes to submit a request for a second review. The denial letter is also sent to OASAS. 2. The provider has the right to initiate a second review in writing, by fax, within thirty (30) days from the date the provider received the denial letter. A cover letter requesting a second review with additional written information to support a request for a second review is needed in order for ART to honor the request and proceed with a second review. 3. The details of the second review, including all aspects of the actions taken to process the second review, will be documented internally by ART. 4. For a clinical denial: The ART Program Manager will assign two-credentialed behavioral health practitioners external to the ART team to conduct a second clinical review of the presented information when the denial was issued due to lack of clinical appropriateness. The behavioral health practitioners may contact the provider to discuss clinical information. All previous documentation will be made available for the second review in conjunction to the updated and additional information provided with the second review request. For an administrative denial: At least one St. Peter s Addiction Recovery Center Administrator will review all the information submitted. 5. The second review determination will be issued in writing to the provider via fax. The second review determination will be made within ten (10) business days of receiving the written request for a standard review. If the denial decision is reversed, a certification will be issued at that time. Verbal notification will also be provided via telephone, as a courtesy. A copy of the determination letter is also provided to OASAS. 6. An expedited second review is conducted and the determination communicated as stated above. However, a viable explanation for an expedited second review is required, that is verbally accepted by the receiving ART member, followed by written information that is supportive of a second review. The determination would then be made within three (3) business days following the receipt of the written information. 7. If the resolution and determination of either the standard or expedited second review is unsatisfactory to the requesting provider, any further action initiated by the referent is to be coordinated with the NYS OASAS field office in Albany, NY. 10/2008
