FIDA_Program_Announcement_ Sample_NYC_Nassau combined with inserts.docx

NOTE: DOH failed to include crucial information - rejecting consumer advocacy, including:
* Right to Opt Out of FIDA
* Fact that you will be passively enrolled in FIDA if you don't opt out
* Says FIDA is free but doesn't explain that still owe Spend-down, if you have one - a source of confusion
* Nothing clarifying that must obtain all medical and long term care in-network from plan,
and more..

NYC HRA MICSA Medicaid Alert - Consumer-Directed Personal Assistance (CDPAP) & Managed Care (10/26/12) Download
2012-10-26 CDPAP and Managed Care.pdf
Effective Nov. 1, 2012, Consumer-Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP) is included in the benefit package for both Mainstream Medicaid Managed Care and Managed Long Term Care. This change affects both people who have Medicaid only and people who have both Medicaid and Medicare ("dual eligibles). See info on CDPAP at http://wnylc.com/health/entry/40/.

(1) Most people STATEWIDE with Medicaid Only (but no Medicare) are already required to enroll in a Mainstream Medicaid Managed Care (MMC) plan. Those plans will now approve, authorize and pay for CDPAP. See http://wnylc.com/health/news/22/

(2) Managed Long Term Care (MLTC)-- See info at http://wnylc.com/health/news/41/.

Since MLTC is now mandatory as of 9/1/2012 in NYC for "dual eligibles" needing personal care, CDPAP recipients in NYC will begin receiving letters giving them 60 days to select an MLTC plan, or they will be auto-assigned to a plan on a random basis. The MLTC plans must contract with CONCEPTS and Chinese-American Planning Council through 10/31/13 so consumers can keep their current aides. See more at http://wnylc.com/health/entry/40/
