DHHS has released its BH I/DD Tailored Plan Provider Manual for Tailored Care Management as well as the application questions that providers will be required to answer. While the implementation of managed care has been suspended as legislative action is needed to move forward, the Department continues to work on the design of Tailored Plans. One of the Department’s key areas of focus in Medicaid Transformation is building robust and effective models for managing beneficiaries’ comprehensive needs
through local care management. Provider-based care management will promote whole-person care, foster high-functioning integrated care teams, and drive towards better health outcomes. Additional information can be accessed on DHHS website- Tailored Plan information, the manual, and the application questions.
DHHS will host a webinar for providers entitled Tailored Care Management: What Providers Need to Know on December 18 from 11:30am-12:30pm. This webinar will explore the provider manual in more detail, walk through the application process, and address questions for you to consider. Register here.
