SCDuE Weekly Update | April 12, 2013

As of Friday, April 12, 2013, the proposed model of the South Carolina Dual Eligible (SCDuE) Demonstration has been changed to reflect a carve-in of home and community based services (HCBS).  These changes will be outlined in the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the State and CMS (e.g., transition of HCBS authority to the Coordinated and Integrated Care Organization (CICO) during the Demonstration period).  Some implementation details are subject to change pending a fully executed MOU; therefore, the State will not issue a procurement solicitation until such time.

Special Session | Revised SCDuE Demonstration Model

South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services
1801 Main Street ● Columbia, South Carolina 29201


The purpose of this meeting is to address comments or concerns related to the revised SCDuE Demonstration model.  On Monday, April 8th, the SCDuE Team conducted a webinar to announce significant changes to the proposed model submitted to CMS on May 25, 2012.  The model will be changed as follows:

  • HCBS included in the capitated rate, beginning Year 1;
  • Transition of HCBS authority to CICOs over the three year Demonstration period; and
  • Benchmarks and readiness standards as thresholds for CICOs assuming this authority.

Additionally, the new model will maintain the current HCBS infrastructure, building on existing contractual relationships.  The State will also retain specified authority over some aspects of HCBS governance and management.  Comments related to the revised model will be accepted on the SCDuE website until 5pm EST Friday, April 12, 2013.


Stakeholder Engagement

Our next scheduled stakeholder educational session on April 24th will focus specifically on LTC/HCBS issues related to the integration of these services in our model.  In order to help us prepare for this session, we ask that you take a few minutes to complete a brief survey.  Your feedback will help us develop an appropriate agenda that is responsive to your needs.  Stakeholder engagement is a cornerstone to the Demonstration and we are committed to remaining engaged as our model is revised.
