NASHVILLE, Tenn. - TennCare ..., 14 Sept 2010 [cached]
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - TennCare Bureau Director, Dr. J.D. Hickey announced today that the TennCare Behavioral Health Organizations (BHOs) have accepted new risk-bearing contracts thus moving the Bureau's entire medical and behavorial managed care network into financial risk agreements.
"We are very pleased to have our full network, both medical and behavioral, in risk agreements. We now are positioned to draw down the maximum amount of federal dollars for the behavioral health side just as we already accomplished on the medical health side last fall with our new MCO risk-bearing contracts," said TennCare Director, Dr. J.D. Hickey.
"We hope to continue to incrementally push our entire network toward greater risk-bearing arrangements," Hickey said.

About 38,000 of the 323,000 are "dual eligibles" who also qualify for coverage under the federal Medicare program that covers people over age 65, according to figures provided by J.D. Hickey, TennCare director.
As for children, all those now on the program will remain, Hickey said.The program covers about 612,000, children.About 112,000 would have been cut from the program in a reversion to basic Medicaid.
In TennCare, "children" means people under age 21 if they qualify for Medicaid, but only those 19 and under if they are part of the "expansion population."
In the future, all children eligible for Medicaid will be enrolled and will receive full benefits just as under the present TennCare program.But, in general, those who would now be eligible under the "expansion program" will not be enrolled, Hickey said.
For adults remaining in the program after the transition, new limits will be in effect for prescription drugs, doctor visits, hospital visits and laboratory work.
Hickey said the state plans to formally file its new plan with the federal Center for Medicare and Medicaid by the end of the week and has received "strong indications" that the federal agency will approve.
The new plan will be implemented in stages, Hickey said, and will not be completely in place until sometime early next year.The new limits on benefits will go into effect first, taking effect in "late spring," he said.
For those to be removed from TennCare rolls, he said, the first step will be sending them a letter giving notice.Hickey said at least another 60 days will pass before the first notice can go out.
