Humana’s Commonwealth Coordinated Care (CCC) membership will transition to Commonwealth Coordinated Care Plus (CCC Plus) effective January 1, 2018. Humana is committed to ensuring continuity of care for our existing CCC membership. Humana will work closely with the Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS) to transition members to their new CCC Plus plan by January 1, 2018, the transition date defined by DMAS for currently enrolled CCC members. You are a valued and critical partner in ensuring a smooth and seamless transition for our members. Our provider partners, health plans and the Department are working behind the scenes so that members will have very little abrasion throughout this transition from CCC to CCC Plus. We look forward to our continued partnership in serving Virginia’s most medically fragile citizens.
Here are some important items we would like to share at this time:
- Benefits of Members Staying in CCC Through the Transition:
- We appreciate your help in keeping our members enrolled in their health plan until January in order to ensure a seamless CCC to CCC Plus transition for both members and providers.
- It is important to note that if CCC members “disenroll” from CCC, they will be transferred back to Medicaid Fee-For-Service. Members who are transferred back to Medicaid Fee- For- Service will be required to re-submit requests to KePRO for current service authorizations.
- Enrollment and Eligibility:
- Humana’s CCC membership does not need to select a CCC Plus plan or take any action at this time.
- On January 1st all currently enrolled Anthem and Virginia Premier CCC members will be passively enrolled into Anthem and Virginia Premier CCC Plus for their Medicaid benefits. Humana CCC members will be passively enrolled into CCC Plus plans, using the “intelligent assignment. Members will receive a formal notification from DMAS and their current CCC plans this fall advising them of the actions needed to prepare for their transition.
- Prior to January 1st, if members “disenroll” with their current CCC plan, they will be placed into Medicaid Fee-For-Service and will not be able to enroll back into the CCC program. For continuity of care purposes, it is of greatest benefit for providers, members and families to ensure members do not lose eligibility through overdue renewals, etc.
- In January 2018, CCC members will receive a ‘CCC Plus member card’ within 10 days of enrollment and informational welcome packet from their health plan within 30 days. The packet will include relevant contact information for member services.
- Continuity of Care:
- CCC Plus plans are required to honor service authorizations for Medicaid covered services up to a 90-day period from both Medicaid Fee-For-Service and outgoing CCC Plans.
- CCC networks and contracted providers will largely remain the same going into CCC Plus to ensure the greatest continuity of care for our members.
- Member and Stakeholder Education for CCC Plus:
- DMAS, along with participating CCC Plus plans, will host a series of member and provider town halls in each region to discuss plan options and outline the CCC Plus implementation phases. We encourage you to attend the town hall sessions held in your region. The dates, times and locations will be available on the CCC Plus “member” webpage http://www.dmas.virginia.gov/Content_pgs/mltss-meminfo.aspx and http://www.dmas.virginia.gov/Content_pgs/mltss-meetings.aspx for providers.
Your role in this process is vital to ensuring continuity of care for your patients. Find information about the CCC Plus program at http://www.dmas.virginia.gov/Content_pgs/mltss-home.aspx. Additionally, DMAS has created the following CCC Plus email address for inquiries and concerns: firstname.lastname@example.org.
