MANAGED CARE RESOURCES

While governed by Ohio Medicaid and Ohio Laws, the Medicaid Managed Care Plans operate independently and their business processes are all slightly different. 
 
It is imperative that the business office be familiar with each plans’ requirements for doing business to be paid accurately and timely.

Connections for Better Care:
Inpatient Psychiatric Episode Care Coordination Project

A recommended best practice is that the HOSPITAL, MCP and Outpatient Providers identify a single point of contact/email distribution group. Formally documenting and providing additional specification to the expectations above would be advisable as well. Additionally, at all stages of the inpatient episode MCP representatives, Community BH Provider treatment staff, and actively involved Family Caregivers need to be allowed on-site at the inpatient facility to engage with the patient and staff of the facility.

OBHPN is proud to partner with Ohio's Managed Care Organizations and Ohio's free-standing psychiatric hospitals toward an improved patient experience and coordination of care which will lead toward optimal patient outcomes.

OhioMHAS 

The Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services is the state agency that regulates and supports mental health and addiction providers. Their authority resides in the Ohio Revised Code under Chapter 5119 and they promulgate rules under Ohio Administrative Code Chapter 5122.  They work closely with the Mental Health Boards and ADAMH Boards at the county and regional levels.  

Ohio Medicaid Managed Care Plan Agreement

This agreement governs the relationship between the state and the Medicaid Managed Care Plans.  It outlines their responsibilities and obligations.  Being informed about what the plans are held accountable for can help encourage an open discussion about operational and contractual discrepancies.
