Or. Admin. R. 410-141-3815 - CCO Enrollment for Temporary Out-of-Area Behavioral Health Treatment Services

Current through Register Vol. 60, No. 12, December 1, 2021

(1) The Authority has determined that, to the maximum extent possible, all individuals shall be enrolled at the next available enrollment date following eligibility, redetermination, or upon review by the Authority. This rule implements and further describes how the Authority administers its authority under OAR 410-141-3805 and OAR 410-141-3810 for purposes of making enrollment decisions for adult and young adult individuals, 14 through and including 17 years of age, receiving temporary out-of-area behavioral health treatment services:
(a) For program placements in Child Welfare, Behavioral Rehabilitative Services, Oregon Youth Authority, and Psychiatric Residential Treatment Services, see OAR 410-141-3800 for program-specific rules;
(b) For program placements in Secure Children's In-Patient (SCIP) and Secure Adolescent In-Patient (SAIP), CCOs shall work with the Authority in managing admissions and discharges;
(c) The member shall remain enrolled with the CCO for delivery of SCIP and SAIP services. The CCO shall bear care coordination responsibility for the entire length of stay, including admission, determination, and planning.
(2) Specific to residential settings specializing in the treatment of Substance Use Disorders (SUD), if the individual is enrolled in a CCO or FFS on the same day the individual is admitted to the residential treatment services, the CCO or FFS shall be responsible for the covered services during that placement even if the location of the facility is outside of the CCO's service area. Upon discharge, FFS members will, upon the next weekly enrollment period, enroll with the CCO that is contracted for their residential service area.
(3) Home CCO assignment is based on the member's residence. Home CCO enrollment for temporary out-of-area placement shall:
(a) Meet Oregon residency requirements defined in OAR 410-200-0200;
(b) Comply with the CCO enrollment rules specified in OAR 410-141-3805;
(c) Be based on most recent permanent residency and related CCO enrollment history prior to temporary placement. If the client has no enrollment history, new enrollment shall reflect most recent permanent residence prior to hospital, institutional, and residential placement; and
(d) Be consistent with OAR 410-141-3810 when the client exercises recipient choice, where the client is able to actively participate in their own recovery and direct their own care. If the client is unable to designate county of residence, as indicated in OAR 410-200-0200, the Authority shall designate the Home CCO as the geographic location of the client at the most recent residency and CCO enrollment prior to hospitalization.
(4) Home CCO enrollment policy for State Hospital discharges shall be implemented as follows:
(a) Upon State Hospital discharge, the State Hospital Benefit Coordination Unit shall consult and coordinate with the Home CCO for client placement;
(b) Beginning in Contract year 2022 (or later if specified by the Authority), if the client is enrolled in a CCO at the time of the acute care admission to the State Hospital when a bed becomes available, the CCO shall be responsible for the covered services during that placement even if the location of the facility is outside of the CCO's service area. The CCO's responsibility shall be in accordance with a risk sharing agreement to be entered into between the CCO and the State Hospital, in a form required by the Authority. The individual is presumed to continue to be enrolled in the CCO with which the individual was most recently enrolled.
(5) For new and existing temporary residential placements, CCOs shall coordinate all behavioral health care and needs including, but not limited to, medication assisted treatment, routine non-emergent physical health care, oral, and transportation when within the scope of the CCO's contract, including when member's temporary placements are outside the CCO service area. CCO's shall coordinate care for members receiving behavioral health treatment while in temporary placement and discharge planning for the return to the Home CCO. Additionally, CCO's shall coordinate all care for accompanying dependent members.
(6) Enrollment shall follow the Home CCO enrollment policy outlined in this rule, except when:
(a) The Home CCO enrollment hinders access to care or puts the client at potential harm, or the Home CCO is unable to provide needed unique services, a change in enrollment may be requested for the member to a CCO serving the service area of the temporary out-of-area placement; or
(b) Home CCO enrollment may create a continuity of care concern, as specified in OAR 410-141-3810. If a continuity interruption to a client's care is indicated, the Authority shall align enrollment with the care and claims history.
(7) Pursuant to OAR 410-141-3810, if the Authority determines that an individual was disenrolled for reasons not consistent with these rules, the Authority shall re-enroll the individual with the appropriate CCO and assign an enrollment date that provides for continuous CCO coverage with the appropriate CCO. If the individual was enrolled in a different CCO in error, the Authority shall disenroll the individual from the incorrect CCO and recoup the capitation payments, pursuant to OAR 410-120-1395. Re-enrollment to the correct CCO shall occur as specified in OAR 410-141-3805.
(8) For consideration of disenrollment decisions other than specified in this rule, OAR 410-141-3810 shall apply. If the Authority determines that disenrollment should occur, the CCO shall continue to provide covered services until the disenrollment date established by the Authority, pursuant to 410-141-3860. This shall provide for an adequate transition to the next responsible coordinated care organization.
