SCDuE Weekly Update | October 18, 2013


This fall, the South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (SCDHHS) will host provider forums throughout the state concerning the South Carolina Dual Eligible (SCDuE) Demonstration.  During the upcoming forums, both SCDHHS and participating CICOs will address the impact of the Demonstration on our health care system and on specific provider types.  These targeted sessions will also give providers the opportunity to ask questions regarding the implementation of this new program.  Please save the following dates for the three statewide provider forums this fall:

Thursday, November 7, 2013 1pm-5pm – Charleston, SC

Friday, November 8, 2013 9am-12:30pm – Charleston, SC

The Integrated Care Workgroup’s (ICW) last quarterly session for calendar year 2013 was held on Thursday, October 17, 2013.  The purpose of this meeting was to provide a Demonstration status and operations update.  Information covered during this session included topics related to the status of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the State and CMS, as well as an update of the prospective Coordinated and Integrated Care Organization (CICO) application process.  The fall provider education series and other stakeholder related activities were outlined.  A discussion was also held on the current status and transition of the ICW for implementation. | Link



CMS and the Minnesota Department of Human Services (MDHS) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on September 12, 2013 to establish a Demonstration to Align Administrative Functions for Improvements in Beneficiary Experience.  The Demonstration, which started on September 13, 2013, will be in effect for three years until December 31, 2016.  Independent of the Medicare-Medicaid Alignment Initiative (MMAI) in which South Carolina is participating, Minnesota’s Demonstration utilizes its existing program for dual eligibles known as Minnesota Senior Health Options (MSHO).  The Demonstration includes three delivery models that promote relationships between MSHO managed care organizations that are also qualified as Dual Eligible Medicare Special Needs Plans (D-SNPs) and providers called Integrated Care System Partnerships (ICSPs).
