Rates and Payments A. The State assures CMS that the capitated rates will be equa l to or less than the cost to the agency of providing those same fee-for-service State plan approved services on a fee-for-service basis, to an equivalent non-enrolled population group based upon the fo llowing methodology. Please attach a description of the negotiated rate setting methodology and how the State will ensure that rates are less than the cost in fee-forservice. I.X Rates are set at a percent offee-for-service costs 2. Experience-based (contractors/state's cost experience or encounter date)(please describe) 3. Adjusted Community Rate (please describe) 4. Other (please describe) B. The State Medicaid Agency assures that the rates were set in a reasonabl e and predi ctable manner. Please li st the name, organizational affili ati on of any actuary used, and attestati on/description for the initial capitation rates. C. The Medicaid payment to a PACE organization on behalf of a Medicaid-eli gible participant shall be a prospective monthly capitated amount that is less than the amount that would otherwise have been paid under the State plan if the participant was not enro lled under the PACE program. I. The PACE capitation rate is set as a percentage of the UPL for what the State would have expected to pay under fee-for-service for the enro ll ees. The rate sha ll not exceed 95% of the UPL. The UPL was established by uti lizing a ll payments and months of eligibility for nursing facility and HCBS waiver enro ll ees for the Elderly/ Di sabled and Adult Day Health Care waivers who met the PACE enro llment criteria, including requiring a nursing facility level of care, who are TN NO.: tj 4-t5b Approval Date //- / -64 Effecti ve Date 2-2 /-01- Supe[SedeL,. Ti'f N O.:... '. Revi sion: QMB Plus, Medicaid (non-qmb) and SLMB Plus. Claims for QMB Only, QDWI, SLMB Only, and Qls were excluded based on Type Case. 2. Claim s and eligibility data were collected for all PACE eligible individuals and three rate groups were established - those with Medicare Part A or Medicare Parts A & B; those with Medicare Part B only and those with Medicaid only. The average cost per enrollee per month for each rate group was calculated for each month based on date of service by dividing the total cost of all PACE eligibles by the total eligible member months for those eligibles for a twenty-four month period. In order to accommodate lag time between date of service and date of payment, data was extracted in June from claims paid as of the end of May A 12 months average was calculated and multiplied by 12 to estimate annual average cost per enrollee for SFY Percentage change between the two periods was taken for projecting utilization trends for the future contract period. Adjustments were made to reflect third-party liability, pharmacy rebates, enrollee cost sharing and programmatic changes in fee-for-service after the data was compiled such as implementation of State Plan option for Long Term-Personal Care Services. The base FFS was then trended to the contract period and adjusted to reflect the upper payment limit. Inflation based on historical fee-for-service data was used. Rates were set as a percentage of the UPL. Medicare Buy-In costs were not included. 3. Medicaid will continue to pay fee-for-service payments for deductibles and coinsuran ce for QMB Only, QDWl, SLMB Only and Qls as they are not included in the U PL or capitated rate calculation. 4. The State is using the open cooperative contracting option and plans to set the rate not to exceed 95% of the UPL, taking into consideration the start-up costs. experience with managed care, etc. D. There shal l be a minimum of two Medicaid upper payment limits calculated annually: I. one for participants who are eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid ; and 2. one for participants who are eligible only for Medicaid. E. The State will submit a ll capitated rates to the CMS Regional Office for prior approval. TN NO.:Oq. --oip Approval Date! / -/-0 1- Effective Date J, Sup,er!iedes.. 1 - njno.: '.
