Requires Most U.S. Citizens and Legal Residents to Have Health Insurance;– Offers enhanced federal dollars for states that choose to Expand Medicaid (atstate option) for all individuals with income under 133 percent of poverty. (plusa 5% income disregard).– Reconfigures insurance industry requiring a larger pool of insured individuals tocover the cost of eliminating insurance underwriting (i.e., pre-existingconditions) while standardizing insurance benefits and pricing.2. Creates Health Benefits Exchanges for Individuals and Small Businesses tocompare and purchase health insurance;– Offers subsidies to low-income individuals with income between 100 and 400percent of poverty to purchase insurance3.

  6. 6. 6Federal Match for Expansion PopulationThe big question…will it remain?* Per the PPACA, federal financial participation will continue at a 90% rate beyond 2022.• Expansion must include individuals up to 133% (plus a 5%income disregard) of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL).• Savings highlights:– Community Behavioral Health Services (shift from local and state funds toenhanced federal funds)– Inmate Inpatient Hospital Savings (shift from local and state funds toenhanced federal funds)– Indigent Care Savings (shift from state funds to enhanced federal funds)Estimated Cost of Expansion in Virginia

  15. 15. Savings accrued during the first five years ofthe expansion should be protected andreinvested to improve the health deliverysystem.—Reinvestment and Savings Strategies Include:– The flexibility to invest in high quality, cost saving healthcare innovation models– Improved analytical and oversight capability at DMAS• Requirement of timely and accurate encounter data fromcontracted Medicaid managed care plans• Creation of Data and Analytics Unit at DMAS– Need to identify structure to protect savings and ensurereinvestmentReinvestment of Medicaid Funding15
  16. 16. Cost and Value Problems in the Healthcare Arena can’t beSolved without Significant Innovation―Innovation opportunities within PPACA are lost in theuncertainties associated with the law.―Virginia is already making progress in key innovation areas―Virginia has created the Virginia Center for Health Innovation(501 (c)3) housed out of the Chamber of CommerceSystem Wide Innovation16

  22. 22. Some call it the “new Medicaid” because of all the changes.Affordable Care Act requires:• Complete replacement of Medicaid eligibility criteria• Eligibility criteria must be checked real-time with Social SecurityAdministration, IRS, Homeland Security• Income must be computed using IRS Modified Adjustable Gross Incomemethodology• Applications must be accepted on paper, on-line, by phone and by fax• New coverage for Foster Children• Changes to Notifications (letters), Appeals and Complaints processing• New Presumptive Eligibility workflow for hospitals• Cases must be coordinated real-time with the Federal Exchange;electronic transfer between Medicaid and subsidized coveragePreparing to comply with ACA

  26. 26. Making Government work smarterVDSS winning the “Innovation inUtilization Award” at RichTech this monthThis award recognizes “the company ororganization whose creative use oftechnology enhances processes,methodologies, and /or services for theirsor others’ benefit.”
  27. 27. • The capacity to collect and analyze client-specificexpenditure data for the significant fund sources andto integrate that data with demographic andassessment data will enable the Commonwealth toanswer critical questions such as:– Are services available to the children who need them?– Are services being provided in accordance with eachchild’s needs?– Are funds for services being spent wisely?– To what extent is each program meeting the measurablegoals for that program based on the availability of services,each child’s needs, and the funds for those services?CSA Opportunities
  28. 28. Transparency• OCS can identify the unique childrenserved by localities requesting thosefunds.• OCS can review individual charges thatconstitute the aggregate reimbursementrequests.
  29. 29. Accountability• Data are being integrated across programs toidentify the total funding per child over time.• Database under development now includeshistorical child-level data from: OCS CANS score data on child need CSA claim level payment data Title IV-E funding at the claim level VDSS case data on foster care status VDSS VEMAT data on child need Medicaid claim data for child services procedurecodes
  30. 30. Integration of All Child-Centered Data
  31. 31. Even With CSA to Coordinate payments, Services forChildren Remain Fragmented
  32. 32. Local service provider data, e.g., specific costs for specific services, are notcurrently reported to the Commonwealth. We have shown through abrief, privately funded, proof of value project that these data can beefficiently collected and can be matched to other data sources to enablepowerful analysis. We have documented things such as:1. There is significant variability in the cost of services available to a childreceiving CSA services at the local level, even adjusting for child need.2. A risk-adjusted payment model can be produced to allow for comparableper diem per client estimates which will highlight outliers.3. A linear model of payment per client per day allows us to account for theeffects of the multiple variables simultaneously, e.g., gender, ethnicity,locality, assessment scores (initial and final), age, number of placements,etc. to ensure that differences are statistically significant and indicative of“risk,” i.e., potentially indicative of fraud, waste or abuse.CSA Opportunities
  33. 33. Lessons Learned• Some localities cannot distinguish CSA from Title IV-Efunding– Informally being stored in comment fields• Some localities using non-standard accountingpractices– methods for recording ongoing monthly payments(ex., “Payment for June, July…” recorded only incomment fields)– Inconsistent process for recording re-payments orcancelled payments.
  34. 34. • Recent payment of $48,446 was made to aCSA vendor in error.• Recent CSA payment for 25 shirts @Burlington for the same child.• New analytics process identified both of theseanomalies. Funds were recovered.Results

  39. 39. Improve Waivers toResolve Current ChallengesVirginia must evaluate methods to move toward a moreflexible array of services that support system values andresolves challenges with current waivers:• Flexibility to address the most complex medical andbehavioral needs• Expand the array of residential supports to includesmaller, more integrated environments• Expand group and individual supported employmentoptions
  40. 40. Children’s ServicesVirginia’s behavioral health services for children faces multiple challenges including anincomplete, inconsistent array of services, inadequate early intervention services, a need forworkforce development and inadequate oversight and quality assurance.0510152025303540Crisis StabilizationUnit for ChildrenEmergency RespiteCareIn Home CrisisStabilizationMobile Child CrisisResponsePsychiatric Services Case Management Intensive CareCoordinationIntensive In-HomeServicesAvailability of Base Services by Number of CSBsAdequate Capacity Inadequate Capacity Services Not Provided
