HRA MICSA Medicaid Alert - Waiver Look-Alikes May become Exempt from Managed Care for 6 Months Download
Alert 2012-9-19 Managed Care Waiver Lookalikes Exemption.pdf
Alert 9/19/2012 The purpose of this Alert is to inform Community Based Organizations, Client
Representatives, Certified Home Health Agencies and other providers that the waiver
“look-alikes” exemption for managed care ended September 1st.

This exemption had been available for consumers who have the same characteristics and needs as
consumers enrolled in Medicaid waiver programs such as Traumatic Brain Injury,
Care at Home, Home and Community Based Services for the Developmentally
Disabled, and the Nursing Home Transition Waiver, but are not enrolled in a waiver

Such consumers may decide they now want to apply for a waiver program or
designation as developmentally disabled. Because this process may take more than
30 days, SDOH has decided to allow an exemption for up to six months for non -
dually eligible consumers who are in the process of applying for a waiver program or
designation as developmentally disabled. To qualify for this exemption, consumers
must call NY Medicaid Choice at 800-505-5678, to inform staff that they are applying
for waiver services.

MLTC Frequently Asked Questions HCSP Quick Reference- REVISED 11-13-2013.pdf
FAQ clarifying issues that pose barriers to enrollment into MLTC plans. Many of these problems stem from "coding" problems - eligibility codes in the Medicaid "eMedNy" system. This FAQ explains that some codes may appear to say the individual is not eligible for Medicaid or for MLTC -- but THEY DO NOT MEAN THAT! And plan should submit "conversion package" to HRA to activate Medicaid and allow enrollment.

NYC HRA MICSA Alert - MLTC Submissions of Nursing Home Enrollments - Feb.14, 2013 Download
Medicaid Alert 2-2013 NH to MLTC.pdf
Special procedure for MLTC plans to submit "conversion" package to NYC HRA Medicaid program, to enroll residents of nursing homes who want to enroll in an MLTC plan in order to return to the community.

In all MLTC enrollments, the conversion package is a set of forms that HRA needs in order to make the necessary entries into the Medicaid eligibility and billing system, so that the enrollment takes effect on the 1st of the following month, and so the MLTC Plan is paid its capitation rate. Once in MLTC, the member will not be able to access Medicaid services in the MLTC service package outside the MLTC Plan's network.

For nursing home residents, the "conversion" is more complicated. HRA not only has to enter the codes described above but also has to remove the codes that applied because of the residence in the nursing home. For many years, nursing home residents have encountered delays in lifting the nursing home "code" from their eligibility, so that they could now access community-based home care and other medical services. The conversion package must include:

(1) The HCSP-3022 (Medicaid Cover Sheet) - This is the conversion form.. A copy is or will be posted on this website.
(2) Completed Nursing Home discharge Alert (MAP-259D)(posted at http://www.wnylc.com/health/download/132) and see article at http://www.wnylc.com/health/entry/117/ )
(3) A copy of the signed enrollment form
(4) A copy of the MAP-3057 (Special Income Standard) form, if applicable (posted at http://www.wnylc.com/health/download/398/) and described in http://www.wnylc.com/health/entry/114/ - last link in Table of Contents
