Whole Person Care Pilot Updates

Last week, the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) received the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) approval of the Whole Person Care attachments, which provide additional detail beyond the Special Terms and Conditions. The following are the three attachments, with links to the documents:
· Attachment GG – WPC Reporting and Evaluation: Mid-year and annual reporting requirements and evaluation process
· Attachment HH – Pilot Requirements and Application Process: Application submission and review process, pilot funding, termination process, and WPC Learning Collaboratives.
· Attachment MM – Pilot Requirements and Metrics: Performance metrics (universal and variant), incorporation of Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA), and reporting requirements
Additionally, DHCS released the Whole Person Care Pilot applications on May 16: http://www.dhcs.ca.gov/provgovpart/Documents/FinalWPCApplication.pdf. The applications will be due to DHCS on July 1, 2016. DHCS also hosted a webinar on the application process on May 19 and will be posting the webinar on its Whole Person Care website. The webinar was an opportunity for stakeholders to ask questions about the RFA.
The CSAC, county affiliate, labor, health plan, and housing collaborative will host another webinar for interested counties on Whole Person Care on May 26. To register, visit this link: https://cwda.webex.com/cwda/onstage/g.php?MTID=e7bec93784775364a773c95f2a4dcc4fe
