Electronic Long-Term Services and Supports (eLTSS) Pilot - Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS)

Description
The eLTSS (Electronic Long-Term Services and Supports) pilots will facilitate the development of basic elements for eventual inclusion in electronic standards. These standards will enable the creation, exchange and re-use of interoperable service plans by beneficiaries, community-based long-term services and supports providers, payers, health care providers and the individuals they serve. Recipient of the Testing Experience and Functional Tools (TEFT) Planning Grant. Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) administers programs to promote the mental and physical health of Kentuckians. They deliver and oversee Community Mental Health Centers, Area Development Districts, and private agencies who provide assessment and case management services to beneficiaries of Medicaid Waiver home and community based services (HCBS). The way their current process works is private agencies, quasi-government, and Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) assessors conduct initial screening and Level of Care assessments. Agencies work with beneficiaries/caregivers and the state to determine financial eligibility. As needed, this includes working with CHFS staff of a specific (HCBS) waiver program. Case managers work with beneficiaries/representatives to create a person-centric Plan of Care (POC). Case Managers capture case notes and direct service providers to deliver services per the Plan of Care.
