N.C. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES
Benefit Plan Streamlining
Purpose:
To reduce LME-MCO administrative resources
necessary to appropriately pull down DMHDDSAS
Federal and State Single Stream funding.
2
N.C. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES
Benefit Plan Streamlining Summary
Benefits:
• Reduces number of Benefit Plans significantly
(from 35 to 10).
• Does not restrict eligibility for State/Federal
services.
• Utilizes a subset of current Benefit Plans, to reduce
the number of Benefit Plan changes necessary
(<10% of clients).
3
N.C. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES
Benefits, Cont.
• Utilizes DSM-5 diagnostic criteria, ICD-9 diagnosis
codes.
• Allows LME-MCOs flexibility in processing for
ensuring eligibility for Benefit Plan and Services.
• Allows (but does not require) LME-MCOs to
automate aspects of eligibility determination for
some Benefit Plans.
4
N.C. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES
Benefits, Cont.
• Allows for extended end dates for Benefit Plan
eligibility (reducing potential for denials due to
expiration of eligibility), as long as continued
eligibility is ensured through business processes
such as authorization.
• Allows for concurrency between most Benefit
Plans.
5
N.C. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES
Benefits, Cont.
• Should reduce the volume of denials due to
eligibility issues.

N.C. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES
New Policy
The LME-MCO authorization and claims adjudication
process must ensure that consumers who receive
State/Federal funded services meet the eligibility
criteria of the Service Definition or the Benefit Plan,
whichever is strictest. The LME-MCO must maintain
documentation to support this determination, and
make it available to the Division or its agents upon
request.
8
N.C. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES
Examples
• Consumer has been previously placed in AMI
Benefit Plan, and provider is requesting
authorization for outpatient treatment:
– AMI Benefit Plan criteria is strictest, so as long as the
individual meets those criteria (diagnoses and
functioning) then LME-MCO may choose to authorize
• Same consumer, and provider is requesting ACTT:
– ACTT entrance criteria are strictest and so must be met
9
N.C. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES
LME-MCO Actions Necessary
1. Develop and/or revise business processes to ensure
individuals are eligible for services through UM and
claims processing.
2. Train UM staff on revised Benefit Plan Eligibility
Criteria, Benefit Plan Diagnosis Array, and Service
Array.
3. Ensure providers are utilizing DSM5 by August 1,
2014 and understand the Benefit Plan eligibility
criteria.
10
N.C. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES
LME-MCO Actions, Cont.
4. Identify any consumers with Benefit Plans that are
being ended. For those who are not also in a
continuing Benefit Plan, submit 834s to revise their
eligibility, prior to submitting their first claim after July
31st, 2014. (NCTRACKS R2W: BR12008-R0010 or 11)
5. Consider whether to extend the end date on Benefit
Plan eligibility for consumers who are unlikely to lose
eligibility.
With procedures in place to support the new policy:
•
•
Individual with I/DD could have an ADSN ending date of 2099
Child with CMSED could have a benefit plan end the day before 18th birthday
11
N.C. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES
LME-MCO Actions, Cont.
6. In NCTRACKS, add the GAP Benefit Plan to
Providers who are contracted to perform initial
assessments.
12
N.C. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES
Benefit Plans
• Semi-Automated Benefit Plan Determination: Benefit
Plan eligibility may be determined through a semiautomated process for five Benefit Plans:
– AMI, CMSED, ASTER, CSSAD and GAP.
– The automated portion of the process should be based on the
consumer’s age at the time of service and their primary
diagnosis, where primary diagnosis is the main focus of
attention or treatment.
13
N.C. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES
Benefit Plans
• Individual Benefit Plan Determinations: The
remaining Benefit Plans:
– ASWOM, ASCDR, ADSN, CDSN, and AMVET
must continue to be determined individually, as they
require review of several individual and clinical
characteristics beyond the primary diagnosis and age
group.
14
N.C. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES
Benefit Plans
GAP = Generic Assessment Payment
• Effective 7/1/14
• Collapses the 6 Age/Disability-specific “Assessment Only” Benefit
Plans into one
• Intended to provide reimbursement for individuals who need
assessment but end up ineligible for any other Benefit Plan (no
concurrency allowed)
• Covers up to two assessments per year
• Eligibility is limited to 60 days
15
N.C. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES
AMI Benefit Plan Revision
Add to the list of Level of Functioning or Risk Factors:
OR
i.
Any individual with chronic mental illness who
is currently stable but without continued treatment
and supports would likely experience significant
decompensation and deterioration of functioning.
16
N.C. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES
Implementation
• The Benefit Plans that are expiring will be enddated effective July 31, 2014 dates of service.
• Any consumers actively receiving services who are
in these Benefit Plans only (and not in one of the
remaining plans) will need to be switched to one of
the remaining plans by this date.
• This is consistent with the August 1, 2014
implementation date for the DSM-5.
17
N.C. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES
Implementation has 2 Stages:
1. Inclusion in DMHDDSAS Benefit Plans after July 31,
2014 shall be based on the covered DSM-5 diagnoses
and eligibility criteria listed in the Diagnosis Array and
Eligibility Criteria documents.
2. ICD-9 diagnosis codes covered in FY14 (see the last tab
in the attached Diagnosis Array workbook) will continue
to be allowed for claims adjudication in NCTRACKS
through the end of FY15, for the Benefit Plans that are
not expiring.
