Care Select Update

A representative of Family Voices has been working with the Office of Medicaid to share the unique needs of families with waivers. As a result, the state plans to institute an alternate plan. Once efforts to enroll a provider in Care Select have been exhausted, those affected families will be asked if they want to maintain their current primary care physician, even if that physician will not join Care Select as a PMP. In those cases, the Care Management component of Care Select will be orchestrated by OMPP behind the scenes for those families to ensure services are adequate. All of the final details are currently being worked out and the "enrollment date" for Care Select has been pushed back to February 1, 2008. If your child's primary physician has told you they will not enroll in Care Select and there is not an appropriate alternative in the program, please contact:
Katie Holeman Shipp 317 234 3804 katie.holemanshipp@fssa.in.gov
or Jill Claypool 317 234 5551 jill.claypool@fssa.in.gov
and explain your situation. Please be prepared to share the name of the doctor you wish to keep.Family Voices will continue to update families on the status of Care Select as information becomes available. Family Voices of Indiana will share advocacy opportunities and updated information on issues that impact Indiana families of children with disabilities or special needs.If you would like to receive notices,please join us at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/FVIndiana
