9 Developing CCO and Brokerage Relationships A look at what it takes to develop and maintain a healthy relationship with a CCO.
10 What s the BIG deal? The State of Oregon has decided to completely change the way health services are offered to Medicaid eligible clients. 8 CCOs go live August 1, more CCOs go live September 1, There are a total of 16 CCOs operating today. Medical and Behavioral Health services are the first to get off the ground with an eye on Non-Emergent Medical Transportation shortly thereafter.
11 Understanding how a CCO works CCOs are local CCOs cover mental, physical, dental care CCOs are accountable for the health outcomes of the population they serve CCOs are flexible in how they bring services to the community CCOs performance is measured
12 Developing relationships with your CCO 4 key headlines I have learned while working with our CCO Transition is never easy Keeping transportation on the radar Transparency is the key Ultimately the care of the Medicaid population needs to be center
13 Any new program will have different challenges that need to be solved Progress can be made when initial uncertainties are covered Technical challenges are always prevalent
14 Keeping NEMT on the Radar It takes a while for CCOs to obtain a basic understanding of NEMT After the basics are understood it is challenging to educate CCOs about the finer details of NEMT
15 The CCO needs to understand the challenges that brokerages face The brokerages need to understand the challenges the CCOs face Good transition will n0t work without transparency
16 Client Care is Central A key to making this transition work is understanding that the CCO and Brokerage both want the same thing Understanding this helps move the process along
17 Closing We are in this together Lack of communication will only delay us helping the client Be prepared for anything Coordinated Care!
18 A New Day is Dawning for Medical Transportation in Portland
19 Portland and TriMet In 1994 TriMet opened the first Medicaid Transportation Brokerage in Oregon under an Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) with the Department of Human Services (DHS). This September we celebrated our 20 th year of service to the region. The model was developed to bring consistent, reliable, costeffective, and coordinated access to non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) for Medicaid clients in Multnomah, Clackamas and Washington Counties & eventually the entire state.
20 The Oregon Model Oregon was the second state in the nation to introduce the regional community brokerage model, borrowing on the concept from its neighbor Washington State, but forming partnerships with public agencies in contrast to private non-profit agencies. One of the benefits of the Oregon model was that Medicaid brokerages would help support ADA paratransit programs by providing medical trips that would otherwise be provided by ADA services. This enhanced paratransit capacity for non-medical trips.
21 Jump Forward to 2015 The public brokerage at TriMet will be replaced with a private brokerage on January 1, 2015 under a contract with the Health Share and FamilyCare CCOs which become responsible for NEMT at that time The goal of the new model is to improve health outcomes, increase member satisfaction and reduce overall Medicaid costs for the CCOs in the Portland Metro Area that serve Medicaid members
22 The Transition TriMet s NEMT brokerage will close December 31, 2014 NEMT and Waivered Non-Medical Transportation services will be administered by different companies New companies will begin services on January 1, 2015
23 Transition Observations Loss of coordinated services and accompanying cost savings (i.e., administration costs, shared rides) Clients must call different companies for different types of trips Capacity to handle volume of service 960,000 NEMT trips per year 55,000 Waivered Non-Medical trips per year 24 hours/day, 365 days/year service availability Disruption of service to clients dialysis patients and others who receive routine critical health care Effects on capacity of ADA paratransit services Some NEMT transportation companies will lose service contracts and close New broker unfamiliarity with Portland NEMT will have out-of-state call center Shorter call center hours of operation for clients to access services Availability of Medicaid match funding for Waivered Non-Medical service
24 Some Shut-Down Activities Call Center/Dispatch/Administration Maintain staff for duration of year Discontinue client Medical Mobility Evaluations Notifications Update website and phone messages with closure notices Alert dialysis centers of change Notify transplant flight providers, medical facilities, clients about change
25 Some Shut-Down Activities Contracts Driver fingerprinting discontinued Vehicle inspections discontinued, except those related to a reported safety violation Annual on-site reviews and manifest checks discontinued Technology OHA paid technical support for Oregon broker software will end OBSS users to update to latest version that will run new required 270/271 eligibility processes
26 Good-Bye from Your NEMT Friends at TriMet It s Been a Great Ride!
