Dual Eligible Background 6 Duals Background cont. About 1.2 million Medi-Cal beneficiaries are enrolled in both Medicare and Medi-Cal in California and are referred to as dual eligibles. Medicare is the primary payer for dual eligibles and covers health services, such as physician and hospital services and short-term skilled nursing. Medi-Cal is the secondary payer and typically covers Medicare cost sharing and services not covered by Medicare, as well as services delivered after Medicare benefits have been exhausted. Most long term care costs are paid for by Medi-Cal including longer nursing home stays and home and community based services designed to prevent institutionalization. 7 Cal MediConnect Population Californias Dual Eligible Population by Age and Location

Full Duals Partial Duals Opt-Out

Enrollee will have both Medicare parts A/B and be eligible for part D) and Medi-Cal Enrollee has Medi-Cal and Medicare A or B Enrollee who is Full Dual eligible, but who elects not to participate in the demonstration (opts out of Cal MediConnect, but still enrolled for Medi-Cal Managed Care) Hypothetical Case Study Example of Target Population Background: A middle-aged enrollee with cognitive disabilities residing in a Board and Care facility without an appropriate support system has recently been experiencing frequent acute care admissions. The enrollee has a mental health diagnosis in addition to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), obesity and hypertension. This enrollee has not seen a primary doctor for over a year but has seen a psychiatrist. The enrollee was hospitalized twice for COPD as a result of noncompliance with treatment plan. The enrollees continued residence at the Board and Care facility is at risk due to the enrollees inability to comply with his treatment regimen. 11

Hypothetical Case Study Example of Target Population Interventions: The Health Net Case Manager, who is a member of the interdisciplinary care team (ICT), will arrange for the following after a discussion with the enrollee: behavioral health, primary care and pulmonology appointments and transportation to them; medication reconciliation by a pharmacist; and Well use nutritional counseling. An integrated Care Plan will be examples developed based on the result of these interventions. The through out to intervention may include finding alternative home health care or help illustrate services if the enrollees mental health disorder interferes with how this model the delivery of services. will be delivered. Goals: The goals would be to:

Establish an integrated Care Plan that would stabilize the enrollees acute medical condition Establish behavioral health treatment plan Maintain ability to reside at the Board and Care facility Establish ICT Team makeup and receive approval from enrollee 12 Goals of the Cal MediConnect MOC 13 13 Goals of Cal MediConnect

The California DHCS (Department of Health Care Services), Medi-Cal Managed Care Division, in partnership with the CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services), launched a three-year Dual Eligible Demonstration Project (Demonstration) in 2014. The goals for the Dual Eligible Model of Care as stated by the CMS and DHCS are to improve health outcomes through: Improving access to essential services such as medical, mental health, Long Term Services and Supports(LTSS), and social services Improving access to affordable care by optimizing utilization of home- and community-based services (HCBS) Improving coordination of care through an identified point of contact and medical home Improving seamless transitions of care across health care settings, providers and HCBS 14 Goals of Cal MediConnect cont Improving access to preventive health services Improving access to HCBS/LTSS Assuring appropriate utilization of services

Improving enrollee health outcomes and satisfaction. Preserving and enhancing the ability of consumers to self-direct their care and enable Dual Eligible enrollees to remain in their homes and communities Through Case Management Health Net strives to support the enrollees desire to self direct care, help the enrollee regain optimum health and improve functional capability in the right setting and most cost effective manner. Health Net will measure outcomes to monitor goals using metrics collected through Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS), Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS), HRA, audit, appeals and grievance and utilization. 15 Definitions for Person Centered Care Person-Centered Care

Improved Outcomes 23 Interdisciplinary Care Teams (ICT) 24 24 Interdisciplinary Care Team (ICT) The ICT will be offered to Dual Eligible enrollees when a need is demonstrated, or if an enrollee, or enrollee authorized representative, family member and/or caregiver requests one. The ICT will coordinate care for Dual Eligible enrollees to address medical, cognitive, psychosocial, and functional needs. The ICT is responsible for overseeing, coordinating, and evaluating the care delivered to enrollees. The ICT meets regularly to review these needs of the enrollee. The enrollee is included on the ICT whenever possible: Required Team members - Enrollee or authorized representative Family member and or caregiver as approved by Enrollee

If receiving IHSS, the County IHSS social worker Medical Expert (e.g., PCP or Specialist) - Care Coordinator (e.g., Case Manager (CM), Social Worker, or Behavioral Health CM) Optional Team members (as needed and approved by enrollee) Pharmacist Health Educator Public Program Coordinator Long Term Care Provider Disease Management Specialist LTSS Service Provider (CBAS, MSSP, etc) Specialized Providers (PT, OT) County Behavioral Health Providers 25 Interdisciplinary Care Team (ICT) Health Net defines demonstrated need for an ICT as any of the following: Any member who has a Care Level of High Any member who has undergone a care transition such as a change in level of care, an unplanned inpatient admission, etc.

Any member who has been identified by the ICT pharmacist as high risk via the Medication Therapy Management (MTM) program Any member who has experienced a significant change in health status Any member and/or case manager experiencing barriers to achieving goals requiring support of ICT Any member whose assessment identifies needs requiring support of the ICT 26 Interdisciplinary Care Team (ICT) The role of the ICT is to: Facilitate care management, analyze and incorporate the results of the initial and annual HRA into the Care Plan, authorization of services and transitional care. Conduct ICT meetings periodically and at the enrollees request Manage communication and information flow regarding referrals transitions and care delivered outside the primary care site. Maintain a call line or other mechanism for the enrollees inquiries and input. Maintain a process for referring the enrollee to other agencies, such as LTSS or behavioral health agencies, as appropriate.

Use secure email, fax, web portals or written communication when communicating with enrollees. When communicating with the enrollee, the ICT must take his or her needs (e.g. communication, cognitive, or other barriers) into account. Person Centered ICT The ICT will be person-centered: built on the enrollees specific preferences and needs, delivering services with transparency, individualization, respect, linguistic and cultural competence, and dignity. The enrollee can choose to limit or disallow altogether the role of IHSS providers, family members and other caregivers on the team. Participating Plans will require that each ICT has a composite of members that are knowledgeable on key competencies including, but not limited to: person-centered planning processes, cultural competence, accessibility and accommodations, independent living and recovery, and wellness principles. Provider Network and Integrated Communications

29 29 Specialized Provider Network Health Net maintains a comprehensive network of Primary Care Providers, facilities, specialists, behavioral health care providers, social service providers, community agencies and ancillary services to meet the needs of Dual Eligible enrollees with complex social and medical needs. Health Net will coordinate with IHSS, MSSP and other HCBS programs as necessary to meet the needs of duals enrollees to assist them with their goal to remain independent in their homes. Health Net provides the full Duals Model of Care with team based internal case management when it is not provided by the enrollees primary care provider and medical group. Delegated medical groups that demonstrate capability to meet the team based care requirements provide the Duals Model of Care for their enrollees. The Delegation Oversight team monitors that delegated medical groups meet the Duals Model of Care requirements 30 Integrated Communications Health Net has integrated and extensive communication systems

necessary to implement the Duals care coordination requirements: The Electronic Medical Management System integrates documentation of case management, care planning, input from the interdisciplinary team, transitions, assessments, waivers and authorizations for non-delegated enrollees The Customer Call Center is staffed with associates trained to assist with enrollment, eligibility and coordination of benefit issues or questions, and can connect them to their Case Manager (CM) The Provider Portal securely communicates Health Risk Assessment results and new enrollee information to Duals delegated medical groups The Member Portal provides enrollee access to online education, programs and the ability to create a personal health record Enrollee and Provider Communications such as enrollee newsletters, educational outreach, Provider Updates and Provider Online news may be distributed by mail, phone, fax or online 31 Additional Benefits 32 32 Added Benefits A combined Medicare/Medi-Cal benefit package, enhanced with

additional value-added benefits and services, will be offered as a means of helping Dual Eligible enrollees meet their specialized health care needs. Decision Power/Disease Management whole person approach to wellness with comprehensive educational and interactive health materials and a focus on chronic diseases Medication Therapy Management a pharmacist reviews medications annually and communicates with enrollee and doctor regarding issues such as duplications, interactions, gaps in treatment, adherence issues Complex Case Management - case management services available for enrollees experiencing catastrophic or end-of life diagnosis Transportation for medically related trips including a family or caregiver if needed Dental, Vision, and lower costs for items such as Diabetic Monitoring supplies and Oxygen these benefits vary by region and type of Dual plan 33 Pharmacy and Part D Medicare No Balance Billing: No

enrollee may be balance billed by any provider for any reason for covered services. Health Net will continue to comply with Medicare Advantage and Medicare Prescription Drug Program requirements in Part C and Part D HN is permitted to charge co-pays for drugs and pharmacy products (including both those covered by both Medicare Part D and Medi-Cal) to individuals currently eligible to make such payments Co-pays charged must not exceed the applicable amounts for brand and generic drugs established yearly by CMS under the Part D Low Income Subsidy or Medi-Cal cost-sharing rules HN may elect to reduce this cost sharing for all enrollees as a way of testing whether reducing enrollee cost sharing for pharmacy products improves health outcomes and reduces overall health care expenditures through improved

medication adherence. Decision Power Disease Management Health Nets comprehensive disease management program focuses on the following co-morbid chronic conditions: Heart Failure (CHF) Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) Diabetes Additional components of the program can include: Biometric monitoring devices and reporting Care Alerts for enrollees and providers when gaps in

care or treatment are identified Preventive health reminders on the enrollee portal Tobacco Cessation 24/7 telephonic access to a nurse 35 Case Management 36 36 Case Management All Dual enrollees are eligible for case management, have an individualized care plan developed and an ICT when a need is demonstrated or when it is requested. Enrollees may opt out of active case management but remain assigned to a Case Manager who continues to contact the enrollee especially if there is a change in health status Enrollees are stratified according to their risk profile to focus resources on the most vulnerable Enrollees who are stratified based on data as high risk behavioral health will receive case management from MHN, Health Nets

HRA calls are made by a vendor with access to interpreter service or by HN associates in CM, whichever occurs first. A health risk assessment should be conducted on each enrollee to identify medical, psychosocial, cognitive and functional risks Health Net attempts to complete the initial HRA telephonically: within 45 days for higher risk enrollees from date of enrollment with in 90 days for lower risk enrollees or in if an enrollee is in a nursing facility annually within 1 year of the last HRA for all enrollees Multiple attempts are made to contact the enrollee and the

survey is mailed if unable to reach them telephonically The enrollees responses to the HRA are incorporated into the enrollees care plan and communicated to the provider via provider portal or by mail 40 Individualized Care Plan Created for each enrollee by the Case Manager Based on the enrollees assessment and identified problems, considering enrollee preferences, choices and abilities Goals are measurable and time-bound to meet medical, behavioral health and long term support needs as determined through the HRA, clinical and community service assessments, utilization data, self and provider referrals, input from ICT members (if need is demonstrated), and other data. Updated when there is a change in the enrollees medical status or at least annually Communicated when there is a transition to a new care setting such as the hospital or skilled nursing facility Communicated to the enrollee/caregiver and the

41 Care Plan Goals -- SMART Specific: clear with target result to be achieved Measurable: includes quantifiable criteria of how the result will be measured such as quantity, frequency and time period Achievable: realistic, clinically appropriate, and credible (Case Manager, Medical Director, enrollee or provider is confident that he/she has the ability to attain the goal) Results-oriented: stated in terms of an outcome that must be achieved and requires focused interventions and effort Time -bound: includes specific deadline by which the goal must be achieved that focuses attention and effort on achieving the goal results 42 Management of Care Transitions Enrollees are at increased risk of adverse outcomes when there is a transition from one care setting to another such as admission or discharge from a hospital, skilled nursing, rehabilitation center

or home health Dual enrollees experiencing or at-risk of an inpatient transition are identified (via pre-authorization, facility notification, surveillance) Inpatient stays (acute, SNF, rehab) are monitored including the establishment of the Care Plan by the physician in 1 business day of admission When the enrollee is discharged home, the Case Manager conducts post-discharge calls in 2 business days of notification to review changes to Care Plan, assist with discharge needs, review medications and encourage follow-up care with provider 43 Care Transitions Prevention Identification Management Stratification/Surveillance Case Management Disease Management

information on the Olmstead Decision, please visit the ADA web site http:// mstead/ 3. community-based services can be reasonably accommodated, taking into account the resources available to the public entity and the needs of others who are receiving disability services from the entity. The Supreme Court explained that its holding "reflects two evident judgments." 1. "institutional placement of persons who can handle and benefit from community settings perpetuates unwarranted assumptions that persons so isolated are incapable of or unworthy of participating in community life." 2. "confinement in an institution severely diminishes the everyday life activities of individuals, including family relations, social contacts, work options, economic independence, educational advancement, and cultural enrichment." Integration of Long Term Services and

Supports (LTSS) LTSS will be incorporated in to the care plan to support the independence of the enrollee in their homes and community. LTSS is to include the Medi-Cal State Plan benefits and services for the enrollee including: Nursing Home (SNF/LTC) Palliative Care In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) Community Based Adult Services (CBAS) Multipurpose Senior Services Program (MSSP) 46 In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) IHSS performs a critical role in the lives of many Dual Eligible enrollees. The core tenet of this program includes: Caregiver services that are enrollee directed, which means they have the rights to hire, fire, schedule, and supervise their IHSS care provider.

Reliance upon Health Nets the ability to improve upon the IHSS system, while ensuring we do not fracture the system and disrupt enrollees abilities to receive needed IHSS services. Health Net will develop care coordination practices with both LA and San Diego Counties while county social service IHSS consumers will participate in the development of their Care Plan, and select who else participates in their planning of care. Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNF) Many beneficiaries may have gone from acute care settings to nursing homes without adequate, appropriate community-based services being offered. Upon enrollment, Health Net's contracted LTC provider and certain medical groups will work with Dual Eligible enrollees living in a nursing home to determine if less restrictive living arrangements are wanted or feasible Building upon Health Nets recent experience with the California Seniors & Persons with Disabilities (SPDs) expansion, a more comprehensive approach has been developed to integrate the entire continuum of available services through the development of personcentered care management plans

Health Net's contracted LTC provider and certain medical groups Case managers will review all institutionalized enrollees and those at risk for institutional care to help keep them independent and in their homes CBAS and MSSP In lieu of institutionalization in a SNF, Health Net's IDCT identifies enrollees who may benefit from CBAS programs, formerly known as adult day care centers. These services may be authorized for up to five days a week and could include the following: Health Net will work with the Area Agency on Aging (AAA) and local MSSPs to explore options to expand capacity of the intensive care coordination The CBAS waiver services delivered by licensed, communitybased providers in an Adult Day Health Center (ADHC) setting. A

CBAS provider provides a bundled service package at an ADHC, pursuant to a participants evaluation, developed by the CBAS providers multidisciplinary team. The MSSP provides social and health care management services for frail elderly Medi-Cal enrollees, 65 years and over, who are certified or certifiable for placement in a nursing facility but who wish to remain at home. Goal is to arrange for and monitor the use of community services to prevent or delay premature institutional placement of frail elderly, Medi-Cal enrollees. Long Term Care (LTC) For enrollees in a LTC a care coordination conference will occur with the enrollee, the enrollees family and facility providers to develop a person-centered Care Plan for enrollees who are residing in LTC facilities. The ICT develops a person-centered Care Plan based on a review of the enrollee-specific HRA for enrollees in long-term facilities. The enrollees desire and ability to return to a home, or to a non-institutional housing environment, utilizing home- and community-based services will be assessed with the goal of returning the enrollee to independent living whenever reasonably possible.

Health Net will contract with credentialed SNF and LTC facilities to ensure enrollees have adequate access to qualified LTC facilities. Coordination of Medicare and Medicaid Goals of coordination of Medicare and Medicaid benefits for enrollees are to: Enrollees informed of benefits offered by both programs - Ensure a seamless coordination between medical, behavioral and LTSS benefits - Enrollees informed how to maintain Medicaid eligibility Reduce duplicative services and their fragmented delivery while improving upon our enrollees care and health outcomes Enrollee access to staff that has knowledge of both programs 51 Coordination of Medicare and Medicaid cont. Goals of coordination of Medicare and Medicaid benefits for enrollees are

to: Clear communication regarding claims and cost-sharing from both programs Enrollees informed of rights to pursue appeals and grievances through both programs Enrollees assisted to access providers that accept Medicare and Medicaid 52 Behavioral Health 53 53 Behavioral Health The delivery of behavioral health services to enrollees will be provided through an integrated network of private, contracted behavioral health specialists and county mental health and substance abuse programs. Through the combined efforts of these delivery systems, Health Net will provide comprehensive behavioral health services for Dual Eligible enrollees to ensure the development of a

comprehensive, person-centered Care Plan. If the enrollee is at risk for behavioral health disorders, Health Nets subsidiary, Managed Health Network, Inc. (MHN) will lead the ICT and coordinate the enrollees treatment. 54 Behavioral Health Identification If the enrollee has been diagnosed with the following diagnosis/reasons a referral to the behavioral health specialist will be done Eating Disorder admitted to medical unit Catastrophic Illness requiring behavioral health support

Needs behavioral health follow-up on discharge from medical admission Complicated detox requiring medical admission Difficult placement due to behavioral health problems Medical Admit with transfer to psychiatric unit Referrals for post discharge substance abuse treatment while still at medical facility

Pain management with substance abuse issues Frequent ER visits for behavioral health diagnoses Dementia with acute exacerbation of behavioral / psychological symptoms Behavioral Health If the enrollees Health Risk Assessment identifies high risk behavioral health needs for any identified enrollee, the Interdisciplinary Care Team (ICT) will include behavioral health specialists who work in partnership with the enrollee and the team. The ICT will provide support to remove access to care barriers by assisting the enrollees to make appointments and to provide transportation assistance when needed. ICT coordination will also include the following directives: Improve access to care by evaluating provider network adequacy, appointment availability statistics and enrollee satisfaction

Improve continuity of care and services by coordinating with county behavioral health resources, including: Community-based organizations, and the full range of providers throughout Health Nets system of care Develop a comprehensive behavioral health assessment for any identified enrollee conducted by the behavioral health specialist who is a enrollee of the IDCT 56 Behavioral Health Dual Eligible enrollees who have been assessed and identified as needing specialty mental health services, alcohol/drug services, or related specialty consultations, the enrollee will be referred to the available County Mental Health Plans. These may be made by: Enrollee self-referral Primary Care Physician (PCP) and/or Other ICT member, based on evaluation of the enrollees medical and psychosocial history, current state of health, and request for services by enrollee or enrollees family.

Therefore, MHN participating providers are expected to coordinate referrals to the County Mental Health Plans as necessary and as determined by the ICT. 57 Quality Improvement Program Health Plans offering Duals must conduct a Quality Improvement program to monitor health outcomes and implementation of the Model of Care by: Collecting Cal MediConnect specific HEDIS measures Meeting NCQA Dual Structure and Process standards Conducting a Quality Improvement Project (QIP) annually that focuses on improving a clinical or service aspect that is relevant to the Dual population (Preventing Readmissions) Providing a Chronic Care Improvement Program (CCIP) that identifies eligible enrollees, intervenes to improve disease management and evaluates program effectiveness (Cardiovascular Disease) Collecting data to evaluate annually if Cal
