Care Management for ALL In 2011, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo established a Medicaid Redesign Team (MRT), which initiated significant reforms to the states Medicaid program. This included a critical initiative to provide Care Management for All by transitioning New York States long-term care recipients into managed care. A key component of Care Management for All is the Fully Integrated Duals Advantage (FIDA) demonstration project, a partnership between the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH). FIDA Through FIDA, certain dual-eligible individuals (Medicaid and Medicare) will be enrolled into fully-integrated managed care plans. Fully Integrated Duals Advantage Program The FIDA demonstration project began
in January 2015 and runs through December 2017. To be a FIDA plan, a plan must be approved as a Managed Long-Term Care (MLTC) plan, be approved as a Medicare Advantage (with prescription drug) plan, and meet all the FIDA requirements. Currently, 21 plans have executed a three-way contract with CMS and NYSDOH and have completed the readiness-review process. This is based on many elements such as systems, staffing, network adequacy, marketing, and training. Whos eligible for FIDA?

Enrolling

All enrollments (opt-in and passive) will be through the enrollment broker, NY Medicaid Choice. Participants may disenroll at any time during the demonstration. Exclusions from passive enrollment Eligible for FIDA, but excluded from passive enrollment: Native Americans, but they may opt-in to the demonstration at any time; Those eligible for the Medicaid buy-in for the working disabled and are nursing-home certifiable; Aliessa court ordered individuals;

All FIDA-eligible duals received the FIDA program announcement letter in December 2014. The program announcement letter is the first notification a participant receives and marks the start of potential opt-in enrollment. NY Medicaid Choice will send participants passive enrollment reminder notices before their scheduled date for passive enrollment. Enrollment process NY Medicaid Choice will enroll individuals and provide education and assistance. Individuals who are eligible for FIDA and enrolled in a MLTC plan will transition in place to the FIDA plan offered by the parent organization of their MLTC plan. Individuals will be informed about FIDA and offered an opportunity to select a FIDA plan or to opt-out of the program.
Transition of care To ensure a smooth transition of care for participants, a FIDA plan must: Make arrangements to help ensure that all community-based supports, including noncovered services, are in place prior to a participants move. Make sure participating providers are fully knowledgeable and prepared to support the participant. Continuity of care Each FIDA plan must ensure that: Participants have access to all of their providers and authorized services, including prescription drugs, for at least 90 days or until their person-centered service plan is finalized and implemented whichever is later. Participants can stay in their current nursing homes. FIDA
plans must have contracts or payment arrangements with all nursing homes, so that FIDA enrollees who are already in a nursing home can stay at that same nursing home for the duration of the demonstration. The Interdisciplinary Team Each participant must have an individualized comprehensive care plan. FIDA plans are required to use an Interdisciplinary Team (IDT) approach. Led by an accountable care manager, the team will ensure integration of the participants medical, behavioral health, community-based or facility-based LTSS, and social needs. The IDT will be based on a
participants specific needs, and deliver services with respect to linguistic and cultural competence, and dignity. IDT composition A participants IDT must be made up of: The participant or, in the case of incapacity, an authorized representative; The participants designee(s), if desired by the participant; A primary care provider (PCP) or a designee with clinical experience from the PCPs practice who has knowledge of the participants needs; Behavioral health professional, if there is one, or a designee with clinical experience from the professionals behavioral health practice who has knowledge of a participants needs; The FIDA plan care manager; The participants home care aide(s), or a designee with clinical experience from the home care agency who has knowledge of the participants needs; The participants nursing facility representative, who is a clinical professional, if receiving nursing facility care; and Other providers either as requested by the participant or designee; or as recommended by the IDT. The RN who completed the participants assessment, if approved by the participant or designee. Independent Consumer Advocacy Network This network will act as a resource and advocate for participants and families as they navigate the MLTC and FIDA program systems. It will also serve beneficiaries of LTSS in Mainstream
Managed Care plans. The contract for this statewide ombudsman program was awarded to a network of not-for-profit organizations, with Community Service Society of New York (CSS) serving as the entity responsible for coordinating services.

CSS will be known as the Independent Consumer Advocacy Network (ICAN) and can be reached by calling 1 (844) 614-8800 or online at: www.icannys.org. Integrated grievances and appeals process The grievances and appeals process incorporates the most consumerfavorable elements of the Medicare and Medicaid grievance and appeals systems into a consolidated, integrated system for participants. All notices are consolidated and being jointly developed by CMS and NYSDOH.
