Transition to Care Coordination
As you are aware, beginning July 1, 2018, the former Medicaid Service Coordination program will be transitioned to the Care Coordination Organization/Health Home (CCO/HH) program.
Life’s WORC will be partnering with the Advance Care Alliance, which will oversee program management for our existing clients from July 1 on.
Care Coordination Organization/Health Homes (CCO/HHs) will combine services for developmental disabilities with health, wellness, and behavioral health services to create a single, integrated and individualized Life Plan. A Care Coordination Organization/Health Home (CCO/HH) is a Health Home that is tailored to meet the needs of individuals with I/DD. The CCO/HH will provide care management and coordination services that are tailored specifically to help people with I/DD and their families coordinate all services. CCO/HHs work with individuals with I/DD and their families to bring together health care and developmental disability service providers to develop an integrated, comprehensive care plan (known as a “Life Plan”) that includes health and behavioral health services, community and social supports, and other services. CCO/HHs will assist individuals and their families with accessing services that support healthy, well–rounded and fulfilling lives.
