1 Alternative Benefit Plan (ABP) ABP Cost-Sharing & Comparison to Standard Medicaid Services Most adults who qualify for the Medicaid category known as the Other Adult Group receive services under the New Mexico Alternative Benefit Plan (ABP). The ABP covers doctor visits, preventive care, hospital care, emergency department and urgent care, specialist visits, behavioral health care, substance abuse treatment, prescriptions, certain dental services, and more. Some recipients will have to pay small co-pays for certain services, depending on their income. Medicaid recipients in the Other Adult Group who have special health care needs may qualify to receive Standard Medicaid services without any co-payments, except for unnecessary use of brand name drugs or the emergency department. Individuals who have a serious or complex medical condition, a terminal illness, a chronic substance use disorder, a serious mental illness, or a disability that significantly impairs their ability to perform one or more activities of daily living, may choose to receive services under the ABP or under Standard Medicaid. Individuals who think they have special health care needs should contact their Centennial Care managed care organization (MCO). Native American individuals who are not enrolled with a Centennial Care MCO should call the Molina Third-Party Assessor (TPA) toll-free at (866) They will help to determine if the individual has special health care needs and is eligible to receive Standard Medicaid services. Individuals with special health care needs may choose whether they want to receive services under the ABP or under the Standard Medicaid program. The table below offers a comparison of the ABP services package to the services that are covered under Standard Medicaid. Since individuals who have ABP coverage will always be ages 19-64, the comparison to Standard Medicaid coverage is for the same age range (ages 19 and above).

12 note section on page 6, item 8 of note 3; and on page 6, item 12 of note 3 6. When there is a NF LOC used for community benefits, NF stays, other residential care or HCBS waiver. Note 1: Assessing a Copayment for Non-Emergent Use of the Emergency Room Hospital Responsibilities: The hospital provider will determine if the recipient is using the emergency room for a non-emergent service. In making this determination, the hospital must consider the medical presentation of the recipient, age, and other factors, as well as alternatives that may be available in the community, the time of day, etc. The hospital must provide an appropriate level of screening to determine whether the service constitutes an emergency. Before assessing the copayment, the hospital must provide the individual with the name and contact information for an alternative provider that can provide the services in a timely manner with a lesser or no copayment (depending on the recipient s category.) If the recipient chooses to go to the alternative provider, the hospital assists with making an appointment for the recipient. Depending on the day and the time, this may include helping contact the alternative provider or providing the name(s) and phone number(s) of the providers, directions, etc. If geographical or other circumstances prevent the hospital from meeting this requirement, the cost sharing may not be imposed. The hospital must tell the recipient the amount of the copayment. If the recipient agrees to go with an alternative, the copayment for non-emergent use of the ER is not assessed by the hospital. If the recipient wants to continue to receive emergency room services beyond that initial screening, the hospital assesses the co-payment. When the hospital assesses the copayment, it is reported to the MCO, and the MCO reduces the payment to the hospital by the copayment amount. If the hospital is not able to collect the copayment amount, the copayment amount should not be deducted from the hospital payment. MCO Responsibilities: To recognize when the copayment has been assessed by the hospital and collected from the recipient, and only then to reduce the payment to the hospital by the copayment amount. Note 2: Assessing a Copayment for Unnecessary Use of a Brand Name Drug The copayment for unnecessary use of a brand name drug is applied to a brand name drug that is NOT on the PDL, with the following limitations: If in the prescriber s estimation, the alternative drug item available on the PDL is either less effective for treating the recipient s condition, or would 4

13 have more side effects or higher potential for adverse reactions, the copayment cannot be applied. Presumably, if the MCO approved the use of a brand name drug NOT on the PDL for one of these reasons, then the copayment cannot be applied. If the prescriber has stated the brand is medically necessary and therefore the claim is billed with a dispense as written indicator, the copayment cannot be applied unless the MCO ascertains the reason for the brand being medically necessary is something other than the fact that the generic form is anticipated to have more side effects or adverse reactions, or would be less effective in treating the recipient. MCO Responsibilities: The MCO should consider how to construct a PDL in order to apply this copayment. For example, maybe only a first tier drug item is called the PDL while a second tier is maybe called something else, maybe Alternatives. The MCO must determine the means by which a copayment on a brand name drug will not be applied when the above conditions are met. Note 3: General Rules for all copayments 1. Native Americans are always exempt from all these copayments. 2. A provider is NOT able to refuse services to the recipient when the recipient is unable to pay the copayment at the time of service. However, the provider is still required to apply the copayment by billing the recipient or trying to collect it at a future visit. 3. Only one copayment can be charged per visit or encounter. There are no other copayments applied during an inpatient stay other than the one applied for hospital admission (in the case of WDI and CHIP recipients). 4. Except for non-emergent use of the ER, the MCO must assume the copayment applies and must deduct the applicable copayment from the claim prior to paying the provider regardless of whether the copayment was actually collected by the provider unless: The recipient or service is exempt from copayment per the criteria on this chart, or The service is exempt based on information from the provider (such as a service to an ABP recipient being an emergency) or The recipient is exempt from the copayment because the total copayments paid by the family exceed 5% of the family s income in which case this information is communicated to the MCO. 5. For non-emergent use of the ER, the MCO should assume the copayment for the unnecessary use does not apply unless indicated by the hospital provider that the copayment has been assessed. 6. There may be instances where the MCO may not know when the use of a brand name drug item should not be subjected to the unnecessary use of a brand name copayment. The MCO must formulate their procedures for this process. 5

14 7. Ideally, the concept of what constitutes preventive care will be standard across all MCO s, but the effort to accomplish this will have to come in the future, probably after the implementation Centennial Care. MAD will give direction as necessary. Note that this concept of preventive care is not necessarily the same as the list produced by CMS for the ABP plan, which is often limited by age or frequency and does not generally consider risk factors and other conditions that may make a service preventive in nature. 8. Exceeding the 5% of the family income: In order to determine if an individual is exempt from copayment, the MCO will have to accumulate the amount of copayments for each individual member in the household family using the case number to ensure that the family does not exceed the aggregate out-of-pocket maximum (OOP) The OOP is five percent of countable family income for all individual members in a household family calculated as applicable for a quarter. When those accumulated copayments reach the family out of pocket maximum expense, then all members of the family are exempt from copayments. Example: If John Jr. had a $50 copayment, and Suzie Jr. had a $50 copayment, and the family out of pocket maximum for the quarter is $100, when little Robbie has a service and the copayment is $5, the family out of pocket maximum for the quarter has already been met. Little Robbie doesn t have to make a copayment. In other words, it is the total amount that has been deducted from provider payments as copayments for all members of the family, not just the individual, that are accumulated and compared to the family out of pocket maximum for the quarter. Copayments for unnecessary use of brand name drugs or ER non emergency use are also included in the accumulation of the total family out of pocket maximum for the quarter. The MCO must be able to provide each member, at his or her request, with information regarding co-payments that have been applied to claims for the member. 9. When other insurance has paid for the service and the amount being paid by an MCO is toward the co-insurance and deductible, copayments are not applied. 10. Copayments are never applied to services that are considered Community Benefits under the MCO contract and rules. 11. Copayments are not applied to services that were rendered prior to eligibility being established, even though retroactive eligibility later covers the time period during which the service was rendered. 12. The MCO must report to the provider when a copayment has been applied to the provider s claim and when a copayment was not applied to the provider s claim. This is done, at a minimum, using the remittance advice, EOB, or equivalent electronic transaction. The MCO shall be responsible for assuring the provider is aware that: - The provider shall be responsible for refunding to the member any copayments the provider collects after the eligible recipient has reached 6

15 the co-payment out-of-pocket maximum (five percent of the eligible recipient s family s income, calculated on a quarterly basis) which occurs because the MCO was not able to inform the provider of the exemption from copayment due to the timing of claims processing. - The provider shall be responsible for refunding to the member any copayments the provider collects for which the MCO did not deduct the payment from the provider s payment whether the discrepancy occurs because of provider error or MCO error. 13. A copayment is not applied when there is a NF LOC associated with the recipient, whether that LOC is used to access community benefits, NF stays, or for DD waiver services. 7

16 Medicaid Alternative Benefit Plan (ABP) version 11/03/14 rs Recipient Definitions Note that there are 2 kinds of ABP recipients: ABP recipient: the recipient is category of eligibility 100, but does not have a disability indicator of PH or ME. The charts below are only applicable to the ABP recipient category. ABP Exempt: the recipient is category of eligibility 100 but also has a disability indicator of PH or ME, meaning either a physical health or mental health disability or other condition that qualifies the recipient as medically frail. When an ABP recipient s condition is evaluated and it is determined they meet the qualifying conditions, they may choose to become an ABP Exempt recipient. The benefit package of an ABP Exempt recipient changes from the standard ABP recipient to that of the standard Medicaid full benefit recipient. That is, the ABP benefit package ends, and the ABP Exempt recipient then has access to the same benefits as a full standard Medicaid recipient. Their category of eligibility of the recipient remains 100 with a PH or ME indicator to distinguish them in the various computer systems. Because the benefits of an ABP- Exempt recipient become the same as any other standard full benefit Medicaid recipient, we do not list their benefits in this chart. The term ABP recipient always means an ABP recipient who is NOT ABP exempt. If the recipient is exempt, and therefore eligible for the standard Medicaid full benefit services, the recipient is always referred to as an ABP Exempt recipient. Once the recipient becomes a ABP Exempt recipient, he or she is NOT subject to any of the service limits associated with ABP. They do not retain any of the additional services that are found only in the ABP (primarily preventive services.). If the ABP Exempt recipient is enrolled in an MCO, the MCO extends the same benefits and managed care services to the ABP Exempt recipient that are provided to the full benefit Medicaid recipient. 1

17 1. AN ABP RECIPIENT HAS THE FOLLOWING BENEFITS EQUIVALENT TO THOSE OF STANDARD MEDICAID BENEFITS: Professional Services and Treatments, including Services at FQHC s and other clinics; Inpatient and outpatient hospital Services; Equipment and Devices; Laboratory and Radiology; and Transportation The coverage of the following services or providers of services under the Alternative Benefit Plan is essentially the same as exists for the standard Medicaid full benefit population and, therefore, would be covered by a managed care organization (MCO) to the same extent that an MCO covers and provides services to traditional full Medicaid eligible recipients. The lists below are intended to be used to communicate the general scope of the services. Not every provider and service is described: a. Physician and most practitioner services and visits, including maternity service, surgeries, anesthesia, podiatry, etc., which are available for traditional full Medicaid eligible recipients. b. Behavioral health and substance abuse services, evaluations, assessments, therapies, including all the various forms of therapy such as CCSS that are available for traditional full Medicaid eligible recipients. Specialized BH services for children: the MCO must assure that BH and substance abuse services provided to EPSDT recipients are available to ABP recipients ages 19 and 20 Specialized BH services for adults: The specialized behavioral health services for adults are Intensive Outpatient (IOP), Assertive Community Treatment (ACT), and Psychosocial Rehabilitation (PSR). These 3 services are included in the ABP. Electroconvulsive therapy: Note this is a benefit under ABP. 2

18 Services not included in the ABP: The following services are not included in the ABP plan because they are considered more in the area of supportive waiver-type services and are not state plan services: Family Support, Recovery Services, and Respite Services. In order for an ABP recipient to receive these services, they must be designated as ABP-Exempt. c. Cancer trials, chemotherapy, IV infusions, and reconstructive surgery services that are available for traditional full Medicaid eligible recipients. d. Dental services as available for traditional full Medicaid eligible recipients. An EPSDT recipient must have available the increased frequency schedule of oral exams every six months and orthodontia (when medically necessary) for 19 and 20 year olds per EPSDT rules. e. Diabetes treatment including diabetic shoes. f. Dialysis g. Durable medical equipment, oxygen, and supplies necessary to use other equipment such as for oxygen equipment, ventilators and nebulizers, or to assist with treatment such as casts and splints that are applied by the healthcare practitioner. h. Family planning, sterilization, pregnancy termination, contraceptives i. Hearing testing or screening as part of a routine health exam but note that ABP does not cover the hearing aids so would not typically cover audiologist s services or any services by a hearing aid dealer, except for EPSDT children, ages 19 and 20, for whom testing and hearings aids are covered. 3

19 a. Hospice, including hospice at home including hospice in a nursing facility. An ABP recipient in hospice does NOT need to apply for or be evaluated for ABP-Exempt status in order for the hospice care to be provided in a nursing facility. Managed care organizations may also cover hospice in a hospice home. Because payment to cover the nursing facility is made to a hospice provider, rather than to the nursing facility, a Native American ABP recipient who has not opted into managed care does not need to enroll in managed care in order to receive hospice care in a nursing facility. b. Hospital inpatient, outpatient, urgent care, emergency department, outpatient free-standing psych hospitals, inpatient units in acute care hospitals for rehabilitation or psychiatric, and rehabilitation specialty hospitals. Note that free-standing psych hospitals are only covered for EPSDT children (therefore, up through age 20) for fee for service recipients. However, managed care organizations continue to pay for inpatient free-standing psych hospitals for adults. Inpatient drug rehab services are not an ABP benefit. Acute inpatient services for detox are an ABP covered benefit. c. Immunizations, mammography, colorectal cancer screenings, pap smears, PSA tests, and other age appropriate tests that are available for traditional full Medicaid eligible recipients. d. Inhalation therapy e. Lab including diagnostic testing, and colorectal cancer screenings, pap smears, PSA tests, and other age appropriate tests that are available for traditional full Medicaid eligible recipients.
