NYC HRA MICSA ALERT 09-26-2014 Medicaid Terminated in Error for 2500 NYC SSI Recipients Download
2014-09-26 Incorrect Stenson Notices SSI State Takeover.pdf
Explains 2500 people mistakenly told Medicaid would be cut off - because they failed to return their "Stenson" Medicaid renewal notice. Those notices are sent to FORMER SSI recipients, so that they can recertify to keep Medicaid without it being linked to their SSI, which they have lost. The State recently took over administering the State supplement to the SSI benefit. APparently this glitch resulted from that takeover.

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/

Medicaid Alert: Excess Income (Surplus) Applicants in Need of Managed Long Term Care Download
MLTC change in spend-down coding 7-12-2012.pdf
July 12, 2012
The purpose of this ALERT is to inform Community Based Organizations, Client Representatives, Certified Home Health Agencies and other providers that the Medical Assistance Program is changing the way it processes Medicaid applications for excess income eligible consumers seeking enrollment into a Managed Long Term Care (MLTC) plan. Consumers seeking MLTC enrollment who are found to only be eligible for the Medicaid Excess Income (Surplus) Program will now have their cases accepted and authorized with “06” (provisional) coverage. This will occur even if their applications are received without bills that cover their excess or surplus.

This new process will allow MLTCplans to see the provisional coverage on ePaces/eMedNY and will facilitate receipt of services for these consumers. Submitters are requested, when appropriate, to prominently indicate on the cover sheet of submitted applications that the consumer intends to enroll into an MLTC plan

Current policy will remain unchanged for all other consumers found eligible for the Excess Income Program.
