During yesterday’s Managed Long-Term Services and Supports Subcommittee (MLTSS) meeting, a presentation was provided by Dr. Howard Degenholz from the Medicaid Research Center at the Health Policy Institute of University of Pittsburgh, which focused on the outcome/feedback of a Community HealthChoices (CHC) Evaluation and the participant experience. This group evaluated the participant experience and their satisfaction with CHC. A variety of participants utilizing CHC were selected; however, specific diagnoses were not included in the selection process.
This group is now planning follow-up CHC 2021 Innovation focus group meetings with providers that will focus on three specific areas: Housing Issues, Employment Issues, and Transportation Issues. Providers/members are encouraged to sign up for these meetings that are scheduled for the end of July/beginning of August.
