Department for Medicaid Services: Medicaid Services

 

907 KAR 1:160 & E. Home and community based waiver services. Glenn Jennings, commissioner; and Carrie Banahan, deputy commissioner, represented the department. Heidi Schissler, legal director, Protection and Advocacy; William Evans, Mary Hass, and Alma Owens, Brain Injury Association; and Anne Marie Regan, attorney, Office of Kentucky Legal Services Program, appeared in opposition to provisions of this administrative regulation. Brian Shofner; Arthur Campbell, Jr.; Judy Harrison; Brian Newsome; and Marsha Van Hook, individuals who may benefit from the consumer-directed option (CDO) program, appeared in opposition to provisions of this administrative regulation.

 

Ms. Schissler stated that her agency opposed two provisions of this administrative regulation.† The first provision limited reimbursement for CDO services to no more than the amount the department allowed for reimbursement for the same or similar service.† Ms. Schissler stated that it could be difficult to find someone willing to accept the rate the department would pay and that the consumer should have the choice to pay more so long as he or she stayed within the overall budget.† The second provision based an individualís CDO budget on his or her historical usage. She stated that an individualís past usage may not fairly show the individualís true need if the services were limited or unavailable in the past.

 

Mr. Shofner stated he was 36 years old and had received home and community-based waiver services for 17 years. He stated that he recently moved out of his parentsí home and into his own apartment and that he needs more personal and attendant care assistance. He requested more services through the CDO program but was denied.† His aging parents could not continue to care for him so, without CDO, his only option would be a nursing home.† Providing services to help him live in the community would be less costly than paying the cost of a nursing home.

 

Mr. Campbell stated he had lived in his own apartment for 24 years and had a home health aide for one hour per day.† He needed 22 to 28 hours per week. Medicare payments would not pay for what he needs.† He stated that if a cap was placed on services, some people wouldnít receive enough help and would have to be institutionalized.

 

Ms. Harrison stated that the CDO program had improved life for her and her disabled son.† Before the program, there were never enough nurses to provide services and they would not allow her, a nurse, to provide services and hire someone to assist her at less cost. With the program, there is less cost to the state and better care for her son. If the program were capped based on historical usage, they would receive nothing because they had no historical usage.

 

Mr. Newsome stated he had applied for the consumer-directed option but had not received it.† He stated that he was told that no new applications were being accepted and there was a monetary cap. He stated that if he did not receive money from the program, he would have to be institutionalized which was a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

 

Ms. Van Hook stated that both she and her father have disabilities and her needs change from day to day which makes it difficult to let an agency know what she will need the following week.

 

Ms. Regan stated she supported the program but has concerns with some of its provisions. She stated that the way budgets were set up under the program was inconsistent with the spirit of the law. Services should be covered based on an individualís current functional needs and plan of care, not based on historical use or the plan of care from the previous year. The maximum amount allowed should be increased to equal the cost of nursing home care. There should be more flexibility in the budget and more allowance for what individuals need to stay in their homes.

 

Ms. Haas stated that the Brain Injury Associationís main concern was the basing of budgets on historical usage. She stated that budgets should be based on current needs.

 

Ms. Owens stated that her son needed individual care and that a Supports for Community Living waiver had helped her provide that care and keep him out of an institution.

 

Mr. Evans stated that his daughter, Holly, required 24-hour care and she received better care at home than she would in an institution.† He stated his family would benefit from using the CDO program but that basing it on historical usage would prevent her from receiving any services. He stated they would like to hire Hollyís elder sister to provide care for her.

 

Mr. Michael Newsome stated he had difficulty obtaining the appropriate level of care prior to receiving the CDO program funding. He did not qualify for the Supports for Community Living services because he had no mental disability and he was placed in a nursing home. The new funding gave him a new beginning and should not be cut.

 

In response to the comments, Mr. Jennings stated that the department did a poor job when it first began implementing the program but that the department had listened to critics, made improvements, and was working to communicate the programís policies to the brokers and personnel in each of the area development districts. He stated that, pursuant to changes made in the program policies, a family member could be paid to provide care and that budgets could be increased to reflect the fact that services were not previously accessed because they werenít available.† He stated that an exception process has been created to individually approve budgets that require additional consideration. He stated this was the beginning of the CDO program and he hoped to move the program forward.†

 

A motion was made and seconded to approve the following amendments: (1) to amend the RELATES TO and STATUTORY AUTHORITY paragraph to correct statutory citations; (2) to amend the NECESSITY, FUNCTION, AND CONFORMITY paragraph to clearly state the necessity for, and function served by, this administrative regulation, as required by KRS 13A.220; (3) to amend Sections 1 to 3 and 5 to 8 to comply with the drafting and format requirements of KRS Chapter 13A; (4) to amend Section 1 to add definitions for blended services, covered services and supports, patient liability, and plan of care; (5) to amend Section 5 to clearly establish the requirements for prior authorization and for the plan of treatment; (6) to amend Section 6 to create a new section establishing requirements for the consumer directed options, including adding language to provide that: (a) if no historical cost exists for the consumer, the consumerís budget shall equal the average per capita historical costs of HCB recipients minus five (5) percent; and (b) a support broker may conduct an assessment or reassessment for a CDO participant; and (7) to amend Section 8 to update the material incorporated by reference. Without objection, and with agreement of the agency, the amendments were approved.

TRANSPORTATION CABINET: Department of Highways: Right-of-way

 

603 KAR 4:045. Cultural and recreational supplemental guide signs and boundary signs. Dana Fugazzi, attorney, and Kathy Woods represented the department.

 

In response to questions by Senator Tapp, Representative Ford, and Senator Pendleton, Ms. Woods stated the proposed changes to the requirements for cultural and recreational signs would allow some agribusiness sites to qualify but not local farmersí markets. She stated that farmersí markets were considered a retail attraction that may qualify for tourist-oriented directional signs, which cost $200 to $400 per year. She stated that unlike farmersí markets, agribusinesses were more for entertainment and relaxation and the sale of produce was incidental.

 

In response to questions by Co-Chair Damron and Co-Chair Roeding, Ms. Woods stated that the brown agribusiness signs cost $1,300 to $2,500 and the applicant was responsible for the cost of installation while the blue, tourist-oriented directional signs were paid for through a yearly contract. She stated the department would review the administrative regulations and determine where signs for farmersí markets would best fit.

 

Senator Tapp made a motion, seconded by Senator Pendleton, that this administrative regulation be deferred until May. Ms. Fugazzi stated that the department agreed to the deferral request. Without objection and with agreement between the subcommittee and the agency, this administrative regulation was deferred.
