2 Overview & Topics for Discussion Why private health insurance? Plan types and coverage issues Rights under Erisa: Self-funded Rights under CA AB 88: State regulated What is & isn t covered Behavioral Health Carve-Outs Requesting Treatments, submitting claims
3 Overview & Topics for Discussion cont. Appeals Grievances with the Dept of Managed Health Care (DMHC), Dept of Insurance (DOI), or your employer Independent Medical Reviews Kaiser Permanente Reasons to be hopeful
4 Why Health Insurance? Health insurance is a benefit that you pay for. Autism is a neuro-biological condition. Autism treatments are health care services. Schools treat educational issues related to ASDs Regional Centers are the payers of last resort.
5 What type of plan Do you have? Ask your employer CA State regulated: AB 88 (includes most individual policies) Self-funded and federal: Erisa Private Insurance, Plan Type 53% 9% 38% Self funded o r go vt D epartment o f M anaged H ealth C are D epartment o f Insurance Source: Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, Center for Financing, Access and Cost Trends Medical Expenditure Panel Survey-Insurance Component
6 Self Insured Plans Employers (not insurers) are regulated by Dept. of Labor, under ERISA* (through EBSA**, see website). Employers pay out claims, pay health plan to administer it Employers can decide whether they pay for mental health, and what services. *Employee retirement income security act of 1974 **Employee benefits security administration
7 Self-insured Plans New National MH Parity, if they offer mental health benefits, they must offer in parity with medical conditions: Only applies to companies with 50+ employees No visit limits Same co-pays as medical Same deductibles as medical
8 Self-insured Plans Some employers have internal or external medical-review process. Read your plan description to understand your rights. Government employees (CalPERS*, state and federal employees**) have their own regulatory processes. *California Public Employees Retirement System **FEHB, Federal Employees Health Benefits Program
9 Self-insured and Government employees: What can you do? Ask your health benefits person, network with others, and speak up together. Many employers have elected to include ABA and other therapies, -- they get to choose. Military/Tri Care; Wells Fargo; Cisco; Microsoft; Yahoo; Oracle; and many other High Tech companies.
10 State Regulated- Mental Health Parity, aka AB88 Defines Severe Mental Illness to include Pervasive Developmental Disorder or Autism Requires coverage for the diagnosis and medically necessary treatment of severe mental illnesses Outpatient services Inpatient hospital services Partial hospital services Prescription drugs (if plan has prescription drug coverage)
11 State Regulated, Mental Health Parity Cont. Under the same terms and conditions as other medical conditions Maximum lifetime coverage Co-payments and coinsurance Individual and family deductibles Assessment of suspected autism (even if not confirmed) should be covered. Allows for Mental Health Carve outs (behavioral health plans)
12 Mental Health Carve-outs Each plan sets it up differently call your plan for more information In some HMOs, you can see any professional on their list Behavioral health and medical plans may have different networks. Sometimes the medical plan says ABA is a behavioral benefit and behavioral plan says it is medical benefit. Causes delays and confusion. Ultimately medical plan is responsible.
13 What benefits can be covered? ABA, (may need pre-certification). Speech, PT, and OT (in HMO, go through the medical group). Psych therapy, group therapy & social skills therapy Medical treatment (psych meds) Developmental pediatricians Psych evals and assessments Family therapy related to autism Augmentive communication devices
14 What is generally not covered? Treatments which do not have enough published studies that show they are effective. ( Evidenced based medicine. ) Therapies for learning issues which benefit the school but not other environments. DAN Dr visits sometimes covered in PPOs, DAN treatments usually not, but may depend on how it is coded.
15 Requesting Treatments For HMOs, request permission first, usually through Primary care doctor For PPOs send in claims and request reimbursement or ask for pre-certification Behavioral health carve-outs often require you to work the system yourself Ask for providers / therapists with autism experience Follow-up verbal requests in writing.
16 Requesting Treatments Save copies of all communication Document all verbal and phone communications with name, date, details, ask for tracking #. Plans should acknowledge receipt of request within 5 working days, 2 days if urgent.
17 Requesting Treatments Make sure claims are submitted to the correct side of the health plan. Submit to both, if you re not sure. Make sure claims were received and entered into the system correctly. Claims are often lost. Follow submissions with phone call. For PPOs: Challenge reasonable and customary rates if below market. Quote Medicare rates.
18 Requesting Treatments: Claims Claims should contain the following: Name, address, DOB of client Diagnostic (299.0, 299.8) and CPT (procedure) codes. Date of service Number of units (OT = 4 unit/hour) Name, address, phone, license # of provider, some plans want EIN.
19 Network Insufficiency: AKA Phantom Networks The plans must tell you who the autism experts are: don t let them tell you to call everyone on a list. Call 5 experts, ask about autism experience, do they have regularly available slots? 15 miles for mental health, 30 for medical. Don t let their experts put you on a long waitlist. Find your own expert and request a singlecase agreement (you pay co-pay only).
20 Denials and Grievances If you have started treatment or are in PPO, send in claims. If you are in an HMO, you must request the treatment from your PCP, then file grievance with the plan. If you don t receive a response within 30 days or you receive a written denial. You can file an appeal with the regulator. You can file a complaint with the DMHC or DOI while filing your appeal. DOL requires you to exhaust your appeals within the plan, then they will get involved.
21 Denial Letters If treatment not medically necessary, you can appeal the denial and request an independent medical review (IMR) If treatment is experimental, the same applies. If it says the treatment is educational or not a covered benefit, -- administrative review only.
22 Complaints and Independent Medical Review (IMR) For access problems (not medical necessity), DMHC and DOI lawyers can contact the plan on your behalf. What is IMR? DMHC /DOI will determine if you get to go to IMR. Results should be returned in 30 days.
23 How to apply for an IMR Complete an IMR application (online) Include: Cover letter describing dispute, relevant evaluations, doctor letter, denial letter, treatment plan w/goals Relevant literature showing efficacy of treatment e.g. Pediatrics, Management of Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders, October, 2007
24 How to get ABA covered DMHC has recently made it much harder to get ABA covered. The following are needed: Questionnaire must be filled out by a licensed professional (see handout) ABA treatment must be provided by a licensed provider. Reasons that work. Due to the severity and complexity. OR Due to the subtlety and complexity.
25 Kaiser Members - Special Info Kaiser is a unique health system Health plan owns the medical group, which is for profit. Doctors won t recommend treatments that the plan won t cover, even if they are medically necessary Refuse to make referrals if not covered Conflict of interest for doctors and patients
26 Kaiser Members - Special Info Kaiser ASD (Northern CA) centers will only diagnose and evaluate, but do not treat autism; Southern CA??? Some centers offer case management, but this usually involves helping you get therapies from regional centers and school districts. Request treatment in writing from member services dept.
27 Kaiser Members - Complaints and IMRs The new stalling tactics: They keep calling you back for repeated evaluations. Authorize 4 sessions of ST or OT for caregiver training and won t reauthorize. Probably best to allow evaluations, their SLPs and OTs generally do not currently treat ASDs.
28 Kaiser Members, Complaints and IMRs Document all conversations in writing. If you are not in regional center, you may have to pay for a private assessment for ABA. ABA Kaiser has been referring N. CA cases to Easter Seals (ESDM*), -- fewer hours. *Early Start Denver Model
29 Reasons to be Hopeful New Governor, will appoint DMHC Executive Director (powerful position) New Insurance Commissioner (Dave Jones) President Pro Tem Steinberg interested in introducing Autism Insurance Mandate* *23 states currently have autism mandates
30 Reasons to be Hopeful, Health Care Education and Affordable Reconciliation Act of 2010 (Obama Health Reform) Mandates autism treatments (ABA) for state based exchanges, individual and small group markets. Likely others will match this Not effective until 2014 Already in effect : Children cannot be denied for pre-existing conditions, Can remain on parents plan until age 26.
31 Litigation Activities When regulatory action isn t enough Consumer Watchdog Case against DMHC, trial set for December 13, stay tuned. Law Offices of Scott Glovsky, class action against Kaiser, also represents individuals.
32 You Can Do it, and You are Not Alone Do not take NO for an answer. You are NOT the only one. Do NOT be shamed into giving up. Only 10% of denials appeal, -- they are banking on it. Don t be afraid to ask your provider for help It takes time. Support is available. Health Ins. Is a benefit that YOU PAY FOR! The more complaints filed, the easier it will be for all.
