1 Enriching Life Enhancing Lives TheLighthouse Daymark Recovery Services, Inc. Volume 2 September 2011 State Budget Problems Hit Home Local Management Entities Face Budget Cuts in Administrative and Service Dollars Submitted by: Billy R. West, Jr., MSW, LCSW, Executive Director Recently the North Carolina General Assembly reduced funding for mental health and substance abuse services statewide by $25 million. They instructed the Local Management Entities (LMEs) to use their fund balances to absorb the reduction. This sounds like a very reasonable approach, for the State is in a budget crisis and LMEs should have a fund balance. The state then reduced an additional $20 million dollars in service and administrative dollars to the LMEs. This second round of reductions is where things get complicated. This is a total of $45 million in reductions across all LMEs in the State. The LMEs must have a sizeable fund balance to successfully apply and obtain a Medicaid Waiver. In summary, the State reduced over $45 million in funding to our payer and told them to use fund balance to cover service gaps that in the real world may be hard to actually use. What this means Statewide is there will be less services and it will be harder for some LMEs to obtain a Medicaid Waiver. But what does this mean for DAYMARK? Fortunately we have picked our business partners wisely. This does not mean that there will be no budget cuts. But between our partners commitment to professional care, our conservative approach to budgeting and our value to the community we should once again weather a storm that has been created by no fault of our own. The following is a report on each LME area that we contract with. Wake County is our newest book of business. Our Facility Based Crisis Services open in September Wake was not immune to budget cuts. The Wake LME was to open two facility based crisis units with DAYMARK running one and another company running another. Due to budget cuts they will only open one facility based crisis unit. That unit will be operated by DAYMARK. So to some degree the budget cut had a silver lining for us in this area. The Lighthouse 1

2 The Guilford County LME contracts with us to provide residential substance abuse services. Most of this funding is Guilford County funding and not State funding. Therefore, we are not anticipating any service reductions and any other reductions we may receive should be minimal to none. In fact, our most recent communication with Guilford County has been to expand our current bed capacity. In the Five County LME area we have just opened a psychiatric practice in Henderson, North Carolina. While Five County did receive reductions we are not anticipating any reductions in this area. Our Sandhills LME received a total of $2.2 million dollars in State funding reductions. Fortunately, they have budgeted well over the years and are opting to use their fund balance to keep existing services in place. There are other ongoing discussions of how we may stretch service dollars to actually have more services in this area. We will know more about this as the fiscal year progresses. In short, the Sandhills LME is strong and no budget cuts are anticipated. Moreover, I would not be surprised to see a few onetime payments that would be an increase for specific programming. Our PBH LME was saddled with a $1.7 million reduction in funding. Like Sandhills, between excellent budgeting and use of fund balance there are no reductions in services planned. As in every year if we are able to keep patients from going to inpatient facilities the money that would be spent on inpatient care will be available for community care. So in theory we could see service dollars moved into community care if we can keep the psychiatric hospitalization rates low. This is possible if we deliver a heavy dose of care to each patient in our communities. The Center Point (CPHS) LME was faced with a $1.2 million reduction. CPHS spent a significant amount of their fund balance last year in order to weather budget cuts. This year will be no different with the exception that CPHS cannot cover the entire State Budget cut this year as they have done in the past. All this being said, DAYMARK will experience an almost $400,000 reduction in funding from CPHS. The actual reduction is much higher but CPHS is making up as much as they can through their own fund balance. While this is not good news, unlike all our other books of business, CPHS has historically funded all our programming in full. Because of the historical and current monetary support from CPHS, the stability in our other LME Areas and our new books of business we should be able to weather this reduction without any major changes to services or staffing patterns. But we must take some action for to simply weather these changes with no counter measures will result in guaranteeing another year of stagnant growth with staff reinvestment. Over the next few months we will be looking at targeting Medicaid patients for services better, as directed by the State of North Carolina, looking at expenses to revenue in all programs and looking at productivity. Although most of these activities will come in the CPHS Area we will also take an agency wide look at our operations. We have become so big all it takes is a minor change in one area and one more unit of service in another to not only offset such a budget cut but actually fill the loss and add revenue. There will be more about the planning around this and success in upcoming newsletters. Our last payer, The Great State of North Carolina Medicaid, also reduced their service rates in an effort to save money. Effective October 1, 2011 all services delivered outside of the PBH Waiver to Medicaid Recipients will The Lighthouse 2

3 receive a rate reduction of 2.67%. Although that doesn t sound like much it does amount to a little over $100,000 annually in Medicaid billing that we will not receive this year. The total reductions from all payers is approximately $500,000. This is not good but it also is not devastating to DAYMARK like it would be too many agencies. Our recent expansions were slated to bring in approximately an equal amount to our bottom-line. So this makes this situation less dire. However, working this hard to start back at square one is not what we want to do. While we are grateful that we can weather such cuts we must maximize productivity, find efficiencies, increase Medicaid patients being seen and find new funding streams in order to turn a profit for reinvestment in programs and staff. An example of other funding streams range from KB Reynolds Grants to starting our second intensive in-home team in the Sandhills Area since the first one is doing so well. In the mean time, please be aware of the financial struggles of our local management entities and their commitment to our services. They (all of them) have done an excellent job in finding ways to fund professional care. I realize keeping our funding levels stagnant is no fun for anyone but it is imperative we still find a way to serve all the patients we can for the good of our communities and the long term good for our agency. DAYMARK SERVICES at WAKEBROOK OPENS IN RALEIGH Submitted by: Wakebrook Carlos Sierra, Director Daymark Services at On September 6, 2011, the newest addition to Daymark Recovery Services will open for business in Wake County. Daymark Services at Wakebrook is a state of the art facility that will provide much needed detoxification and crisis stabilization services to the Wake County area. Staff members who are predominantly new to Daymark have been training for the last several weeks and are eager to begin their new roles. Daymark Services at Wakebrook will work closely with the Wake County Crisis and Assessment Service (CAS), the Wakebrook Recovery Center (a 9 day length of stay substance abuse treatment center) as well as the Wake Med Emergency Department. Within this framework of services, Daymark Services at Wakebrook will help to maximize the effectiveness of treatment by becoming a key component in helping families and individuals who may not previously have had access to resources for treatment. The center looks forward to working with other Daymark resources and invites all to drop by for a visit and see what we are all about! Targeted Case Management Update Submitted by: Billy R. West, Jr., MSW, LCSW, Executive Director As written about in previous newsletters and addressed in several forums, there are changes coming to Targeted Case Management (TCM). We have been told that this service cannot be performed by a provider in an area where a local management entity (LME) has a Medicaid Waiver. We also received conflicting information on a The Lighthouse 3

4 provider s ability to perform TCM in Medicaid Waiver Areas. There have been some recent clarifications. The PBH LME has notified us that effective October 1, 2011 that they will no longer pay providers to do targeted case management. Cases will be moved to the PBH Care Management Department for care coordination, which is the only allowable service that can be provided under a Medicaid Waiver. This is not a decision of PBH but a Federal Rule associated with the Waiver. This only impacts the PBH Waiver area for now. We have notified our TCM Staff at PBH and are working on a two phase plan to transition patients to other services as well as absorb staff in other enhanced services (IIH, day treatment, TCM in another county, CST). Financially this will not have a negative impact on our agency in the PBH Region. It is conceivable that we could actually generate more revenue if these positions transition to another enhanced service. What this means for non-waiver areas (non-pbh counties) is that we have about one and a half to two years before we need to give up TCM. We are working on plans now to continue to do TCM for the next two years in these areas and build other enhanced service arrays to move these TCM Staff into along with transitioning their patients to an enhanced service. These plans are not finalized and will not be for sometime due to the length of time that we still can provide TCM, which is the service with the most effective outcomes right now. We will keep everyone abreast of changes as we know more. SPECIAL CARF SECTION JUST WHAT IS CARF, EXACTLY? Submitted by: Larry Elmore, MSW, LCSW, MPH, QI Director As I ve worked with staff in several Daymark facilities around CARF preparation, I ve come to realize that many new staff simply don t know what CARF is or what it does. Hopefully, in a few short paragraphs, I can explain CARF and the benefit of the CARF survey to Daymark. CARF (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities) was founded in 1966 as a private, not-forprofit organization, supported by the fees it collects for providing surveys, workshops and printed publications. Its mission is to promote the quality, value, and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process that centers on enhancing the lives of the persons served. Now, that s a mouthful! Basically, we and our funding sources (such as local management entities and the State of North Carolina, Medicaid and others) need to know that what we are doing meets a certain quality level. Ask yourself, would you pay for poor quality or service? CARF allows us to see where we stand when compared to other agencies all over the country (and world) that provide similar services. They do this through a rigorous survey, typically every three years, in which they measure how close we come to the field driven standards they set out in their 2011 Behavioral Health Standards Manual. I might add that the standards used today were developed over the past forty years AND CARF relies heavily on an international advisory committee (and dozens of sub-committees) to systematically review and revise the standards. The Lighthouse 4

5 One reason we sweat every time we go through a survey is that the standards are routinely revised and often the bar is raised on our performance. The standards manual (mentioned above) is broken into five distinct areas on which the survey focuses. Those areas are Aspire To Excellence, section one, which focuses on leadership, governance, and planning; General Program Standards, section two, which addresses screening, treatment and discharge; Behavioral Health Core Program Standards, section three, aimed at specific programs like case management services; section four, Specific Population Designated Standards; and Community and Employment Services, which is section five. The survey itself will involve several surveyors (probably six) and several days (probably three). As you can see this will be a push to cover something as large as Daymark. So, please make yourself available, be on time, provide good, well thought out answers, and don t be afraid to say that you check with your supervisor when you don t know the answer to something. Question #1: Do all CABHAS (agencies like us) use CARF? Answer: No, there are other accrediting agencies (like NCQA or JCAHO) but we feel CARF is the best accrediting agency for our specific business and our agency s purpose. Question #2: Who pays for CARF to survey us? Answer: Typically the agency being surveyed, in our case Daymark pays for it. Question#3: What would happen if we fail? Answer: Historically, an agency (clinic or hospital) does not fail in all areas. Usually, a shortcoming is in a particular program or service. First, you would be asked to submit a plan of correction. Secondly, if the shortcoming was significant, you may be asked to undergo a second survey following the implementation of the plan of correction. Finally, since we use CARF to validate the quality of what we do, it would likely cause questions to be raised by our funding sources and may result in a review by the funding agency. Question#4: What can I do to make sure we are successful? Answer: Prepare yourself! CARF likes to talk with staff and persons served. They tend to ask a lot of questions. They want to know that you can safely evacuate a building or that you understand client confidentiality or that you hold the persons served best interest at heart. If you have questions about CARF, ask your supervisor. Take this time before the survey to talk about the survey with your co-workers so you can figure out exactly how to answer certain questions. Over the next month you ll see lots of info on CARF, but it is up to you to take the time to read it. In preparing for CARF the end of September, here are some questions to ponder since you may be asked by a CARF person: The Lighthouse 5

6 Submitted by: Lila Ellison, LCSW-Archdale Do you know the mission statement of Daymark? It is on your badge. We will need to have our badges handy and wear them. How does a client access services here? What if a client is not eligible for services here, such as DD, only SA, etc. seen by a CABHA? Where do you have charts when seeing a client? Are charts in locked in your office when you are not there? Would you know where to find the P & P book? Who are our safety officers? Where our fire extinguishers are and what do we do in case of a fire. Where is the first aid kit? Where in the building would you go in case of tornado or hurricane? Where is the MSDS book? Where is the poster of the clients rights? Are there any diversity posters? Should the medical records door be open or closed? Where would you find information about clients rights? Where in the building can you find candy? When do we have luncheons? Talk with your peers and supervisors about the answers to these and many more questions! The CARF Accreditation process is not only an opportunity to show off our agency but for all of us to learn more about ourselves. Remember that if we row together we will stay afloat. (KP) QUALITY IMPROVEMENT/ CLIENTS RIGHTS: Submitted by: Bonnie Miller, RHIT, Quality Assurance Director The Lighthouse 6

7 Question: Where can you obtain information about Client Right s? ANSWER: Client Right s information can be obtained through our Client Right s Handbook, and Notice of Privacy which is provided to every client during the intake process. The Client Right s Handbook is available in English and Spanish. In addition, the Division of MH/SA/DD has issued a Consumer Handbook, 2nd edition is now available in our waiting rooms.

You can find the DAYMARK Annual Report located on our website just click Annual Report. Question: How do you handle a complaint from a consumer, legally responsible person (LRP), or any other customer? ANSWER: A complaint received should be referred to your supervisor, Clinical Director, Associate Clinical Site Director, or Practice Manager/Support Supervisor based on the complaint/issue. The Clinical Director and/or Associate Clinical Site Director and/or Practice Manager/Support Supervisor will listen to the consumer or other individual regarding the concern and document the concern, follow up with recommendations/actions to help solve the issue if possible. A consumer complaint form (available in public folders under FORMS), must be completed and sent electronically to the QA Director. Question: If I have questions regarding whether an incident report needs to be completed, who do I ask or where can I go in public folders to find the answers? ANSWER: You may ask your supervisor for assistance, you may also the question to the QA Director. Incident reporting information is located in public folders, under FORMS, subfolder incident reporting. All incident reports Level III, II and I must be scanned and ed to the QA Director (Bonnie Miller) The Lighthouse 7

8 HIPAA, medical record management, quality reviews, client rights, etc. Submitted by Revonda Nance The following are activities that are happening daily throughout our agency. Most staff are not aware of all the regulations and how we comply with them on a daily basis. The numbered and bulleted items below gives a snap shot of all that goes into our services from a regulatory standpoint. Please take time to review. 1. Example of HIPAA violation: Releasing information without client consent when consent is required Talking client information in the hallways of the agency Not closing office doors when checking phone messages Discussing information with anyone outside of the agency who does not have a need to know Exercising caution when bringing up client information on computer screens to ensure you have correct client information before making the screen privy to the client Ensuring that any client information taken outside of the center is secured in a red security bag and secured safely in the vehicle 2. Client orientation is conducted as evidenced by: Manual Intake /Screening Form Authorization to Receive Treatment Notice of Privacy Practices Client Rights Handbook Daymark Services Brochure Clinical Assessment Outpatient Treatment Agreement 3. Should be able to discuss the agency s policy for no show follow-up as well as discharges. 4. Need to be aware of financial intake process/forms: Financial Agreement Service Fee and Sliding Fee Schedule Proof of Income (Unemployment, SSI, Social Security, Wages, W-2 s. tax return, etc.) Insurance Verification Form Copies of Insurance Cards including Medicare/Medicaid BC/BS Form Social Security Card Copy or Drivers License or other photo ID Guardianship Papers (if applicable) 5. Clinicians should be able to explain how they participate in the peer review process. That it is conducted in the treatment team process on a weekly basis and that clinical feedback is provided to the clinician concerning The Lighthouse 8

9 his/her work. That issues cited in peer review may result in additional staff trainings as appropriate. That no clinician reviews his/her own documentation and has no involvement in the records selected for review. 6. May ask questions concerning the proper releasing of information. Staff need to be able to explain what situations require a Release of Information form and situations where release may be made without client consent. Staff should review Notice Of Privacy Handout as this covers all the situation where disclosures can be made without client consent. From Section 2.E. -- Medication Use: Submitted by: Jan Russell, MSN, RN, Davidson Clinical Site Director T F 1. CARF requires that the physician/nurse practitioner provide women of child-bearing years with education about potential risks associated with use of psychiatric medications should they become pregnant. TRUE: Medical staff must provide documentation of ongoing education to women of child-bearing years of the potential risks should they become pregnant and the need for birth control when certain medications are prescribed. T F 2. CARF allows only physicians, nurse practitioners and registered nurses to administer medications to consumers in an outpatient clinic or 24 hour inpatient setting. FALSE: CARF allows for anyone approved through licensure, such as physician assistants and licensed practical nurses, as well as staff who have successfully completed approved medication administration courses (approved by the Division of MH/DD/SA Services) and supervised by registered nurses and/or physicians to administer prescribed medications to consumers, as allowed per policies of Daymark. T F 3. CARF requires that medical staff complete an AIMS assessment on consumers each time they are seen face-to-face. FALSE: CARF recommends that medical staff complete an AIMS assessment every 6 months as appropriate with documentation of ongoing assessment for side effects, adverse reactions and effectiveness. From Section 2.A. Submitted by: Elizabeth H. Rickard, LCSW, LCAS, CSI, Center Director Randolph County T F 1. When an individual is found ineligible for a program or service, staff do not have to immediately inform the person and/or to specific family supports as to why they have been found ineligible. The Lighthouse 9

10 FALSE. When a person is found ineligible for program or services, staff will immediately inform the person and/or to specific family supports as determined by the person as to why they have been found ineligible and will recommend other appropriate services and/or service providers for the scope of service needed AND staff will make appropriate and timely referrals to other resources, services, providers that can best serve that individual and their level of care. T F 2. Each program or service has to provide information and education to persons served but do not have to have family involvement. FALSE. Not only will each program or service provide information and education to persons served that is relevant to their needs, but also will encourage families to participate in education and/or clinical programs per the individual s choice. T F 3. Not all program or service staff has to know about funding sources expectations and timeframes for changing services. FALSE. Each program or service will be aware of their funding sources and resources, and to have a written plan to address any unanticipated service modification, reduction, or exits precipitated by funding and/or resources. All program or service staff must be knowledgeable in funding sources expectations and timeframes for discontinuing or changing services. PERSON CENTERED PLANS: Submitted by: Lisa J. Brandyberry, Ph.D./Licensed Psychologist, Daymark Clinical Director T F 1. CARF only requires that you update a basic treatment plan once every year. FALSE While Medicaid rules require once/year at a minimum, CARF standards require that the plan is reviewed/revised at any time there is a significant change in the person s life, regardless of whether there is a program or therapist change. T F 2. Since Daymark doesn t get reimbursed for case support (e.g. phone calls), it s okay if I don t spend time documenting these things FALSE. As a CABHA and a CARF-accredited agency, we are mandated to demonstrate we are actively working with other agencies and stakeholders and as the old saying goes, If it wasn t documented, it wasn t done. T F 3. If I make a referral to another provider, then it is my responsibility to follow up and make sure that the person made contact and is being taken care of by the other provider. The Lighthouse 10

11 TRUE. Again, as a CARF-accredited agency, we are expected to take care of the people we are serving, including during a transition/referral to another provider or service. Other agencies can drop the ball in making contact with a new referral or can choose not to serve them. It is our responsibility to see the referral through to the point of at least confirming that contact is made (and documenting this was done!). served. T F 4. My clinical assessment content has to support whatever diagnosis I give a person being TRUE. And it has to do a lot more than that! Your assessment needs to demonstrate that you took into account the person s culture (race, age, gender, sexual orientation, religion, etc) when collecting information; that you assessed the person s life in a broad manner to identify strengths, preferences, needs and abilities; that you identify what is needed in additional to what Daymark can provide (e.g. food stamps, medical care, housing needs, vocational help, etc); and that you obtained any collateral information as relevant (could be family, friends, LEA officers, hospital staff, etc). T F 5. For enhanced services, PCP s only need to be reviewed/revised every 90 days. FALSE. It completely depends on the service. Most services do require a review every 90 days; however, CARF requires that Intensive Outpatient Programs review/revise the PCP every thirty (30) days. If you re not sure about what your service requires, be sure to check with your supervisor to be certain! Assessment and Referral, Section 3.B. Submitted by La Vang, LCSW, Montgomery Center Director served. T F 1.CARF does not require your STR s to be identify appropriate levels of care for the person FALSE CARF requires that Daymark has demonstrated a method to identify appropriate levels of care for the person served. T F 2. Daymark will only implement a waiting list for services when services are not readily available and compromise the quality of care and safety of all. TRUE The waiting list involves an active review process that leads to a determination of eligibility based on Daymark s admission criteria and it helps to ensure needed services are being provided in a timely manner. TARGETED CASE MANAGEMENT Submitted by Jean Tillman, Associate Clinical Operations Director, PBH The Lighthouse 11

12 T F 1. Targeted Case Management will only link clients to housing and transportation services. FALSE. Targeted Case Management services are based on the needs of the persons served and provide assistance including, but not limited to: community linkages, enhanced social support networks, accessing transportation, securing safe housing, budgeting, meal planning, medical or other health care assistance. MOBILE CRISIS MANAGEMENT Submitted by Kristie Emanuel, Mobile Crisis Program Specialist True or False: MCM Staff does not have to be CPR/First Aid certified in order to provide services. (FALSE, all MCM must be certified in CPR/First Aid, the job description was revised to reflect this requirement) True or False: Crisis plans are developed for every consumer receiving mobile crisis services. (TRUE, there should always be a crisis plan for every episode of mobile crisis care, and technically for every time we talk to the client) RECOGNITIONS: ANNOUNCING BUSINESS OF THE QUARTER JULY - SEPTEMBER 2011 DAYMARK RECOVERY SERVICES, INC.

Not Pictured: Allison Bowers- DavidsonWorks Over the last year, Daymark participated in the Transitional Employment Program (a regional collaboration effort among six workforce development boards) that worked in conjunction with the NC Community College system in promoting JobsNOW graduates to employers for employment. Daymark placed eight Healthcare Billing and Coding graduates into a work experience and provided an opportunity to obtain "hands-on" exposure to the career field. After approximately twelve weeks, four of the candidates were hired in positions full-time and the remainder was placed with other employers who had full-time positions available. This opportunity was made possible by connecting DavidsonWorks Career Programs & Services with Business Services in bridging the employer relationship and talent pool available. Mr. Billy West, DAYMARK CEO, has been appointed by the North Carolina Secretary of Health and Human Services to serve on the Medical Care Advisory Committee (MCAC) of the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Division of Medical Assistance (DMA). The purpose of the MCAC is to advise DHHS and the Medicaid agency (DMA) on health and medical care services that may be covered by Medicaid. The MCAC will consider such issues as revisions of existing policies; policy development; and methods of assessing the quality of care. Members are advisors and do not function as policy makers. Mr. West was also recently nominated by Dr. Judy Siguaw, Dean of the College of Human Ecology at East Carolina University for an Outstanding Alumni Award given by the East Carolina University School of Social Work. Mr. West graduated from East Carolina University (ECU) and serves on a Steering Committee for the School of Human Ecology. His efforts on this committee and independently have banded professional masters level programs of social work, psychology, counseling and substance abuse across the State of North Carolina together to promote professional care in behavioral health.
