Discussion topics
20
Billing for CLS services
• CLS will not be billed through the electronic verification
system.
• Agencies must submit electronic claims on the UB-04 form
using a clearinghouse.
• Managed Care Organizations (MCOs) will have a provider
representative assigned to your company to help with this
process and answer questions.
• Billing frequency would depend on the service in place and
the structure of the service.
23
Program requirements for CLS
services
• MCOs are working to develop requirements that will align
with the provider’s current processes.
• Will address key documentation and quality standards.
• Will be developed collaboratively among the MCOs to
ensure consistency and ease for the providers.
22

license cover CLS services?

• Mental Retardation Semi-Independent Living Services
licensed provider by DIDDS for:
•
•
•
•
CLS1
CLS2
CLS-FM1
CLS-FM2
• Mental retardation supported living and/or residential
habilitation facility provider by DIDDS for:

23
What type of quality
assurance will be in place?
• Critical incident reporting
• Monthly contacts with care coordinators by phone or
face to face
• Provider advocate annual HCBS audits
24
Who develops the plan of
care?
• In CHOICES, the plan of care (POC) is a very similar
document to the individual support plan (ISP), including:
•
•
•
•
•
Relevant information regarding the members’ services
Natural supports
Back-up plans
Disaster planning
A summary of the individual’s physical, social and emotional
needs
• Any self-directed care the member qualifies for
• Each MCO has a different format but all POCs contain the
same information.
• The CHOICES care coordinator is responsible for developing
the POC.
25
How will medications be
administered?
• CHOICES members will be allowed to use self-direction for
medication administration if determined appropriate.
• A verbal order will be obtained from the member’s PCP and
included on the POC allowing a paid worker to assist in this
health care task.
• This is limited to the administration of oral, topical and
inhaled medications.
26
Will the person’s MCO for
medical services be the only
choice he or she has for the
CLS service?
• Each MCO has the right to administer a single case
agreement with individual providers.
• We strongly encourage participation with all MCOs to
ensure continuity of care.
27
Have MCOs started contracting with
DIDDS providers? What is the
process?
• Yes, we all have.
• The process is similar for each MCO.
• When a member is identified to move into a CLS
housing, a single case agreement will be completed.
• We will be moving to global contracts some time in
2015.
28
Who to contact at each MCO?
• Each MCO has a different point of contact. We encourage
you to reach out to your provider representative if you
already have one.
• We also encourage you to meet with representatives that
are present from each MCO here today to exchange
information on how to reach out to them.
29
Time frame from
identification of a member
until move-in day?
• This can range from seven to 45 days.
• Each case is different and specific to the member.
• Specific items that may impact this time frame are:
• A member’s physical status and need for additional care to
resolve acute conditions
• Need for a home modification
• Need for member & care coordinator to obtain needed
household items for community living
