September 30, 2015 marks the statutory deadline for states that received funding under the Balancing Incentive Payments Program (BIPP) to make significant changes to how they fund long-term services and supports (LTSS). For the past three years, participating states have worked together toward BIPP’s requirement to provide conflict-free case management services, one of three required structural changes for participating states.
Conflict-free case management requires states and agencies to grapple with a core tension: how can a state deliver services to an individual in a manner that facilitates ultimate choice and consumer direction, while ensuring the overall care system is coordinated and free from conflict? And how does a state develop this system to work with both the existing aging and health care infrastructure and the changing care delivery landscape?
This webinar provided a background on CFCM and reviews existing regulations and CFCM guidance. The webinar also highlighted outstanding areas of questions and challenges states face as they develop conflict-free case management systems.
