1 LONG TERM SERVICE AND SUPPORTS (LTSS) Program Overview Health Alliance Connect Long Term Services and Supports program is for members who have been determined eligible for a Home and Community Based Service (HCBS) waiver program or the Nursing Facility program. The Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services (HFS) has several waiver services for people who qualify. These services are available in addition to medical and behavioral health benefits. Health Alliance has contracted with HFS to provide eligible enrollees five of the waiver programs in the following counties in Illinois: Champaign, Christian, De Witt, Ford, Knox, Logan, Macon, McLean, Menard, Peoria, Piatt, Sangamon, Stark, Tazewell and Vermilion. Eligibility Health Alliance Connect does not decide whether you are eligible for the Waiver or Nursing Home programs. Either the Department on Aging or the Department of Rehabilitative Services determines eligibility. If you are eligible, you will be asked to choose a plan. If you do not make a choice, a plan will be chosen for you. The following are some of the eligibility requirements: Be a resident of the State of Illinois Be a citizen of the United States or a legally admitted alien Have a DON score of 29 points or more Have less than $17,500 in assets or $35,000 family assets for a child under the age of 18 Needs will be met at a cost less than or equal to the cost of nursing services in an institutional setting Fully cooperate with the Medicaid application process and maintain Medicaid eligibility. If you do not meet or maintain your eligibility requirements according to the Department standards, you may be removed from the waiver program. Your eligibility Department will tell you, in writing, if you are no longer eligible. It will tell you the date you will be removed from the waiver program. The Department will tell Health Alliance Connect your removal date. Care Management Service You will be assigned a Nurse Care Manager at the time you are enrolled. Your Nurse Care Manager will work with you, your family or your guardian to help you figure out your needs and find the right services to meet those needs. If you are in the Persons who are Elderly Waiver or the Persons with Disabilities Waiver, your Nurse Care Manager will visit you at least once every three months. If you are in the Persons with Brain Injury Waiver, your Nurse Care Manager will contact you at least once every month. If you are in the Persons with HIV/AIDS Waiver, your Nurse Care Manager will contact you at least three times a month, and at least one time will be in person. If you live in your own home or in a Supportive Living setting, your Nurse Care Manager will do an assessment visit and service plan with you every three months. If you live in a Nursing Facility, your Nurse Care Manager will do an assessment visit and service plan with you every six months. Your Nurse Care Manager can visit you more if your needs change. At each assessment visit, your Nurse Care Manager will ask you questions to learn more about you. He or she will ask about your strengths and what you can do and what you need help with. He/she will work with you and your family, as you decide what services meet your needs. caid-spdltss-0813
2 If you live in a Nursing Facility, your Nurse Care Manager will approve your Long Term Care stay. Your Nurse Care Manager will work with you and your family to see if you can return to a community setting with services and supports. If you live in the community, your Nurse Care Manager will help get the services you need based on your waiver program. You will have case management services as long as you are a Health Alliance Connect member and in a nursing facility or in an HCBS Waiver program. Nursing Facility Service A Nursing Facility (NF) sometimes goes by different names, like Nursing Home, Long Term Care Facility or Skilled Nursing Facility. A Nursing Facility is a licensed facility that gives skilled nursing or long-term care services after you have been in the hospital. These facilities have services that meet both the medical and non-medical needs of residents who need help and support to care for themselves because of a chronic illness or disability. They provide care for things like dressing, bathing, using the bathroom, meals, laundry and more. In a nursing facility, the employees will take care of your medications and order refills for you. If you live in a Nursing Facility, you will need to pay a Share of Cost or Patient Credit. The State decides what your Patient Credit total will be, based on your income and your expenses. If you have questions, your Nurse Care Manager can help you understand your Patient Credit. You will need to pay the Patient Credit to the Nursing Facility each month. Home and Community Based Services and Waivers Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) help you live in your own home or in a community setting. Your Nurse Care Manager will work with you, your family or guardian to find the right types of service. The Nurse Care Manager will also work to find the right amount of those services and how long you will get them. Not all services will be right for you. Once you agree to these services, your Nurse Care Manager will work to set them up for you. The HCBS Waiver programs are below. The services available are next to each program. The definitions of services are listed at the end of this list. Note These services cannot be given to you while you are in a hospital or nursing home. Health Alliance Connect needs to preauthorize these services.

Supported Employment Supported employment includes activities needed to maintain paid work by people who get waiver services, including supervision and training. Supportive Living Program Also known as Supportive Living Service A supportive living facility is a housing option that gives members with many support services to meet the member s needs to help keep them as independent as possible. Examples of support services to meet those needs include: housekeeping, personal care, medication oversight, shopping and social programs. Supportive living does not offer complex medical services or supports. Freedom of Choice You have the choice of nursing facility placement, supportive facility placement or home and community based services. You also have the right to choose not to receive services. You can choose which provider/agency you want to give you your Long Term Services and Supports. Your Health Alliance Connect Nurse Care Manager will go over a list with you of agencies approved to give these services in your service area. Your Health Alliance Connect Nurse Care Manager will work with you to participate in your service plan development and in choosing types of services and providers to meet your needs. You will get a copy of each service plan and any changes to the plan. The services that you get are for needs listed on your service plan. They are not for the needs of other people in your home. Personal Assistant Service Depending on your Waiver, you may be able to choose the Personal Assistant (PA) service. If you choose to use Personal Assistant service, you should request a criminal background check on potential employees. Home Services Program (HSP) will cover the cost of the background check, and it will not affect your services. You will get a Member (customer) packet and a PA (employee) packet. You should keep copies of paperwork in your Member packet folder. If you hire a PA, it is your responsibility to make sure to do the things listed below. You need to complete and submit all necessary documentation to the local HSP office before your PA starts working. This includes information in both the Member and PA packets. You need to select a PA who has the physical ability to do the tasks under your direction, and the PA will not have a medical condition which will be aggravated by the job requirements. You need to give a copy of and review your Health Alliance Connect Service Plan with your PA so they understand your needs and hours approved. You will review the Time Sheet with your PA to make sure the information is correct before you turn it in, and only approve hours actually worked by the PA for payment.

Your provider cannot change your Service Plan. If you need a change in services, you need to call your Health Alliance Connect Nurse Care Manager to look over your needs and make changes to your Service Plan. If you want more services than your Service Plan allows You can ask your provider to give you more services than what s listed on your Service Plan, but you will have to pay 100% of the cost of those extra services. Quality of Service If you do not believe your provider/caregiver is following your Service Plan, of if your caregiver does not come to your home as scheduled, or if your caregiver is always late, you should call the caregiver agency and talk to your caregiver s supervisor. If the problem is not fixed, you should call your Health Alliance Connect Nurse Care Manager. If the problem is still not fixed, you should call the Health Alliance Connect toll-free number, which is listed on the first page of this handout, to file a grievance (complaint). Your Responsibilities Non-Discrimination of Caregivers You cannot discriminate against your caregivers because of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, ancestry, marital status, physical or mental disability, unfavorable military discharge or age. To do so is a Federal offense (illegal). Reporting Changes When you become enrolled in the Long Term Services and Supports program, you must report these changes: Change Changes to your services or service needs Change of address or phone number (Even if only temporary) Change in number of family members Changes to your income Within 30 calendar days of the change Report To Health Alliance Connect Nurse Care Manager Health Alliance Connect Nurse Care Manager Enrollment Agency Enrollment Agency Health Alliance Connect Nurse Care Manager Enrollment Agency Financial Benefits Your Long Term Services and Supports program is paid by Medicaid, a federally funded program monitored by Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services (HFS).

This could include if you will be at a doctor s appointment, a general outing or on a short vacation. Tell your caregiver or provider when you will be gone and when you plan to return, so they can start services again when you are back.
