What Do We Get From Health Plans?
   Health plans provide additional customer services, interpreter
    services, 24/7 nurse lines, navigation assistance, care management,
    transportation, and oversight not included in current FFS systems
   Since Medicare Part D is now delivered through managed care, to
    coordinate drug coverage we need to work with Medicare plans
   Working with health plans also participating in Medicare provides a
    mechanism for improving coordination between Medicare and
    Medicaid service delivery and financing
   Health plans help leverage network access for people who have
    difficulty accessing providers on their own (such as dental care)
   Health plans help direct/manage providers to encourage preventive
    care, best practices, care protocols, and work to measure improved
    health outcomes across populations
   Health plans conduct quality assurance and performance
    improvement programs, disease management programs, pay for
    performance programs and other incentives for improving and
    overseeing care
   Health plans have flexibility to pay providers and arrange care
    differently to address access issues where State cannot
   Administrative costs in MN health plan public programs are among
    the lowest in the US, and are reasonable (about 8%)
   All plans working with DHS are non profit

      What is Special Needs BasicCare?
                   (SNBC)
   SNBC is a managed care program designed with
    stakeholders especially for people with disabilities who
    have Medical Assistance (Medicaid).
   The goal of SNBC is to assure access to primary and
    preventive care for members
   SNBC can also assist in coordination of physical and
    mental health needs.
   Enrollment in SNBC is voluntary.
   SNBC started in 2008 and has about 6,000 enrollees in 78
    counties.
   The State contracts with 5 health plans to provide SNBC.
   SNBC enrollees have access to a care coordinator, care
    guide or navigator to help them get physical health care,
                                                           7
    mental health services, and support services.
       Services for SNBC Members
   People enrolled in SNBC have access to all of the
    same basic care services provided under Medical
    Assistance.
   All Medicaid mental health benefits including Mental
    Health Targeted Case Management are also
    included in SNBC.
   Up to 100 days of Medicare or Medicaid nursing
    facility coverage and home health aide and skilled
    RN visits are covered under SNBC by the health
    plan.
   SNBC DOES NOT INCLUDE personal care, ICF-MR,
    home and community based services, private duty
    nursing and county case management for people
    with developmental disabilities
   These and other long term care services continue to
    be available through Medical Assistance fee-for-
    service for SNBC members.

            How Does SNBC Work?
   There are no premiums or additional costs for enrolling
    in SNBC.
   People enroll by signing an enrollment form or having
    their guardians or authorized representatives sign it.
   Members can disenroll (or enroll) in any month by
    sending a written request to the State or the MCO
    (effective the 1st of the next month).
   SNBC health plans provide additional navigation
    assistance and care coordination to members to help
    them use the health care system.
   SNBC plans are required to assist members to receive
    primary and preventive care physician visits.
   SNBC health plans must also assist with coordination
    of Medicare benefits.
   Some SNBC plans offer an integrated Medicare plan
    that includes Part D drugs.

                   Key SNBC Contract
                   Requirements
   Health Risk screening within 30 days of enrollment
   Medical home/Primary Care Clinic
   Facilitation of annual physician visits
   Broad availability and access to specialists,
    transportation and specialty DME suppliers
   Extended health related case management
   24/7 RN call lines
   Disability competent member services
   Provide information to enrollees about clinic
    accessibility
   Disease management programs specific to people with
    disabilities
   Health plans will cover most Medicaid co-pays for both
    duals and non duals.
   Communication protocols for working with counties
    and providers who are highly involved (eg residential,
                                                       12

    home health)
              Medicare and
         Special Needs Basic Care
   SNBC health plans either directly manage or
    coordinate with Medicare Parts A, B, D coverage for
    people who are eligible for both Medicare and Medical
    Assistance (often called “Dually Eligible”).
   Three of the SNBC plans also offer a Medicare Special
    Needs Plan (SNP) for people with disabilities that
    provides all Medicare services including Part D
    prescription drugs under one card.
   SNBC members can choose to enroll in these
    “integrated” Medicare and Medicaid SNP plans.
   For those who don’t enroll in a SNP Medicare remains
    fee-for-service including Part D drugs.
   Some parts of the State do not have SNP options.
SNBC and Medicare Part D Drugs
   Medicare Part D is now responsible for most drugs for people
    who are dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid.
   Medicare eligible people must choose a Part D Plan.
   Enrollment in SNBC will not change a person’s enrollment in a
    Medicare Part D Drug Plan.
   SNBC plans must coordinate with Medicare Part D Plan
    coverage.
   However, if a Medicare eligible SNBC enrollee chooses to also
    enroll in their SNBC plan’s Medicare SNP, their Part D coverage
    will change to that SNP plan. This allows coordination of all
    Medicare and Medicaid prescription drugs under one health
    plan.
   Dual eligibles are charged copays for Part D drugs
   Institutional enrollees are exempt from Part D co-pays
   Health Plans MCOs are NOT ALLOWED to waive Part D Medicare
    drug co-pays per federal Center for Medicaid and Medicare
    Services (CMS) rules.
          How is SNBC Going for Enrollees
   SNBC has low voluntary disenrollment rates (about 3%)
   High satisfaction (60% rate health plan a 9 or 10 on scale 1-10)
   89% report they are satisfied with their involvement in planning
    and care
   Low complaint and appeals rates
   Over 30% of current SNBC enrollees have a serious mental health
    condition with over 80% having some mental health diagnosis
   SNBC enrollees have more health and mental health need (about
    15-20% higher) than average fee-for-service enrollees (Risk
    Scores)
   Mental Health Targeted Case Management access rates in SNBC
    are also about 20% higher
   DHS is working with the Institute of Community Integration at the
    U of M on a large evaluation related to SNBC
   SNBC also is the platform for the Preferred Integrated Network
    (PIN) project, a partnership between Medica and Dakota County to
    integrate physical and mental health needs of enrollees
   Case studies illustrate how SNBC can be beneficial for enrollees
               SNBC Payments
   Medicaid payments to the health plans are “risk
    adjusted” based on the diagnoses and costs of each
    individual enrollee through the Chronic Disability
    Payment System
   Payments have been specially adjusted to include
    additional provisions for mental health services and
    needs
   This system will provide higher payments to health
    plans who enroll high cost enrollees, and lower
    payments for those who enroll more low cost
    enrollees
   Payments are designed to be budget neutral to
    current fee for service costs for enrollees
   Medicare also provides a separate risk adjusted
    payment for dual eligible enrollees for people enrolled
    in SNPs.
                  Enrollee Rights
   Enrollees of SNBC have access to the same rights to
    appeal Medicaid Assistance coverage issues as they
    do under fee for service.
   Members receive explanations of these appeal rights
    upon enrollment and DHS also sends additional
    information during the year to all members.
   Enrollees are encouraged to call the health plan to let
    them know of problems and can also make oral or
    written grievances/appeals to the health plan.
   Enrollees can also appeal directly to DHS through the
    State fair hearing process or appeal both to DHS and
    the health plan.
   For Medicare services, enrollees also have the right
    to appeal by contacting the health plan.
   Enrollees can also call the Ombudsman for State
    Managed Health Care Programs for assistance:
      1-800-657-3729 or 651-431-2660
    When SNBC Enrollees have a question or a
     problem with access, services or billing,
               they may contact:


   Health Plan Member Services.
   The County Advocate.
   The Ombudsman for State Managed Care Health
    Care Programs (651) 431-2660.
   Care Navigator, Care Guide or Care Coordinator
   DHS Appeals Office.
        Stakeholder Involvement
   DHS developed SNBC with the assistance of a broad
    group of stakeholders, including disability
    advocates, consumers, counties, providers and
    health plan representatives.
   This Statewide group will continue to meet to
    provide input to DHS in monitoring and oversight of
    SNBC. The group meets quarterly and meetings are
    open to the public.
      Contact Cindy Czech 651-431-2514 to be added to
       the mailing list.
   Each health plan participating in SNBC is required
    to have a similar local stakeholder’s group.
   This is an opportunity for consumers and health
    plans to work together to improve SNBC on an
    ongoing basis.

SNBC EXPANSION
      SNBC Expansion
Beginning Jan. 1, 2012, people with
disabilities under age 65 (including children)
who have Medical Assistance fee-for-service
coverage will be asked to enroll in an SNBC
health plan for their health care. Some
people may be excluded. Anyone can
choose not to enroll and “opt out” to stay in
fee-for-service. Those who do not opt out
will be enrolled.
This expansion of SNBC was mandated by
the 2011 Minnesota Legislature (256B.69,
subd. 28)                                    24
             SNBC Expansion Legislation
   New legislation requires that adults and children with disabilities
    receiving Medical Assistance (MA) be assigned to a Special
    Needs BasicCare (SNBC) health plan unless individuals choose
    to opt out of enrollment
      Beginning Jan. 1, 2012, people with disabilities who have MA
        must be asked to join a health plan participating in SNBC.
      People may choose to opt out of enrollment or to disenroll at
        any time and return to MA fee-for-service (FFS).
   Estimated 78,216 adults and 11,544 children with disabilities
    could be affected by the new law.
   Preliminary analysis indicates about 19,600 (25%) of these adults
    have a serious mental illness.
   Enrollment will be phased in between January and July 2012. The
    legislation projected that 50 percent would choose to opt out.
   SNBC is still considered a “voluntary” program under federal
    regulations due to the opt out provision.
   People enrolling under the new legislation for Medicaid would not
    be required to enroll in the Medicare SNP portion of SNBC but25
    could do so at any time.
     New SNBC Enrollment Process
   SNBC enrollment expansion will be phased in between January
    and July 1, 2012.
   All potential enrollees will receive letters informing them of the
    new enrollment process.
   The mailing will include information on SNBC, the health plan
    available in their county, their rights, the opt out process and
    how to contact the Disability Linkage Line for assistance.
   An opt out form will be included . People who want to opt out can
    return the form by the deadline and they will not be enrolled.
   People will NOT be enrolled before they are given a chance to opt
    out.
   If they do not return the form, they will be enrolled in one of the
    plan choices in their area by the State.
   People who have been enrolled can opt out at any time effective
    the next month.
   People who opted out may also choose to enroll at a later time.
SNBC Revised Implementation Schedule:

First Phase: January 1, 2012
Adults (Approx. 8700), not on HCBS waivers, in
counties currently served by Medica, SCHA and
PrimeWest where there is only one plan choice
(Counties with no choice of health plan – the person
is enrolled in whatever health plan serves that
county).

The initial mailing notifying people of the managed
care program called Special Needs BasicCare
(SNBC) and the legislation enrolling them in a SNBC
unless they choose not to join SNBC is expected to
be sent the week of November 7th.
Second Phase: February 1, 2012
Adults (Approximately 6300), not on HCBS waivers, in
counties served by UCare where there is only one plan choice
(UCare is the only health plan choice). The initial mailing
