Case Management Update - April 2019
Key Highlights This Month:
We are entering a key period of the case management redesign as it relates to finance so having member input and awareness is critical. We will have a forum at the April MACSSA meeting to discuss finance issues and challenges with moving forward with a new finance scheme for case management. At the March MACSSA meeting, DHS presented on potential 2020 legislation focusing on the concerns of CMS related to county set rates for contracted providers. DHS will be working with MACSSA on how best to move forward with planning on this topic.
In relation to the policy aspect of case management redesign, DHS received an overwhelming amount of feedback to the proposed policy changes and has pushed back a meeting of the policy design group to mid-summer to give them time to go through the feedback and categorize it.
