CAADS ALERT: New DDS Directive: Providing and Claiming for Nonresidential Services during COVID-19

JULY 23, 2020 | California Association for Adult Day Services (CAADS) | ALERT

On July 17, 2020, the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) issued a new directive that extends the expiration date for "absence billings" for non-residential services to August 31, 2020. Those billings were set to expire on July 31, 2020. The directive also includes a framework for the delivery of alternative services for those non-residential services that would go into effect September 1, 2020, that, prior to the State of Emergency due to COVID-19, were provided in site-based programs.

What the new directive does:
ABSENCE BILLINGS: Extends the "absence billings" to nonresidential providers for consumer absences through August 31, 2020.

CAADS ALERT: CAADS Releases Position Paper on DHCS’ Proposed “Long Term Care at Home" Benefit

JULY 20, 2020 | California Association for Adult Day Services (CAADS) | ALERT

The Long Term Care at Home (“LTC at Home”) Proposal was first released as a “trailer bill” proposal in May and then introduced to stakeholders by the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) in June 2020. Development of this new statewide Medi-Cal benefit is currently being fast tracked, with implementation planned for early 2021, pending CMS approval.

The initial reason given for creating a new 1915(i) State Plan benefit was to “decompress” California’s skilled nursing facilities, diverting an as-yet undefined set of Medi-Cal beneficiaries from hospital settings to home by providing alternative support. The proposal provided to the Long Term Services and Supports Subcommittee in late June indicated that the initial concept has expanded to include a broader set of goals.

The medical care and home and community-based services (HCBS) to be provided through this proposed benefit would be determined by conducting person-centered assessments. While the proposal indicates that services will be tailored to individual needs, it is not clear what these services will entail nor whether this will include 24-hour health care and support as skilled nursing facilities do, as the full range of services available through this benefit has not been described.

DEPARTMENT DIRECTIVE 01-071720: PROVIDING AND CLAIMING FOR NONRESIDENTIAL SERVICES DURING THE STATE OF EMERGENCY

JULY 17, 2020 | Ca. Dept. of Developmental Services (DDS)
Directive Issued July 17, 2020

To: REGIONAL CENTER EXECUTIVE DIRECTORS

As follow up to the Department of Developmental Services’ (Department) June 18, 2020 guidance, the purpose of this correspondence is to extend retention payments to nonresidential providers for consumer absences through August 31, 2020

In addition, this correspondence previews the structure for subsequent reimbursement of claims for providing nonresidential services using alternative service delivery approaches during the COVID-19 State of Emergency. The structure described would have an effective date of September 1, 2020, pending the issuance of an additional directive by the Department. The procedure outlined in this correspondence is a step toward reimagined service delivery, reflecting modifications that may be necessary during the COVID-19 pandemic. These modifications are driven by the Department’s priority to maintain federal funding and its intent that services be provided to regional center consumers based on consumer preferences.

CDC Updates Public Data Portal on the Health of Older Adults

JULY 15, 2020 | Centers for Disease Control and Prevention | Portal Link

The CDC recently updated the Alzheimer’s Disease and Healthy Aging Data Portal, which provides access to a range of national, regional, and state data on older adults. This resource allows users to examine data on key indicators of health and well-being for older Americans, including caregiving and cognitive decline, by age group, gender, and race/ethnicity.

The Portal was updated with 2018 BRFSS data, including data on cognitive decline from 50 states and data on caregivers from 44 states. Portal users can retrieve CDC data by indicator or by geographic area, and then use these data to develop reports and create customized maps, charts, and graphics.

Public health professionals can use the data to create a snapshot of the health of older adults in their states, which can help them prioritize and evaluate public health interventions.

Guidance on Closure of Sectors in Response to COVID-19

JULY 13, 2020 | Ca. Dept. of Public Health - CDPH | LINK

Summary
COVID-19 transmission rates continue to rise across the state, including increasing numbers of cases in rural counties that had not previously experienced significant infection rates. Despite the closure of certain indoor sectors in counties on the County Monitoring list, those counties continue to demonstrate concerning levels of disease transmission that impact not only the general population but vulnerable populations in the community.

This guidance and the Statewide Public Health Officer Order, dated July 13, 2020:

  • Closes, on a statewide basis, indoor operations for certain sectors, and both indoor and outdoor operations for bars and similar establishments, consistent with the June 28 and July 1 restrictions on counties on the County Monitoring List.
  • Closes, for counties on the County Monitoring List for three or more consecutive days, indoor operations for additional sectors which promote the mixing of populations beyond households and make adherence to physical distancing with face coverings difficult. Within these sectors, and in the affected counties, those specified businesses that are not able to continue their business through outdoor operations must close that portion of their business effective immediately in order to further mitigate the spread of the virus.

New Fact SHeet - How the ACA is Helping Older Adults During COVID-19

JUNE 25, 2020 | Justice in Aging | Fact Sheet

COVID-19 is putting a spotlight on our nation’s healthcare system—exposing both the ways in which programs that serve older adults are essential and the gaps. In particular, the pandemic is emphasizing how older adults’ lives are at stake in California v. Texas, when the U.S. Supreme Court decides whether to uphold the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Today, 18 states, led by Texas and the Trump Administration, submitted briefs asking the Supreme Court to strike down the ACA as unconstitutional.

Justice in Aging’s new fact sheet outlines the ways the ACA is acting as a lifeline for older adults during this pandemic. It ensures that more older adults have health insurance coverage, expands access to home and community-based services (HCBS), and prevents discrimination based on age and disability.

Eliminating the ACA’s Medicaid expansion and anti-discrimination protections would exacerbate the devastating effects of systemic racism that are causing older adults of color who to contract and die from COVID-19 at disproportionate rates.

For more on what’s at risk for low-income older adults if the ACA is struck down read our amicus brief and our 10-Year Checkup Issue Brief.
