The State of Michigan needed a public website to serve as the home of the Michigan Medicaid EHR Incentive Program. The site is a one-stop source for all Medicaid EHR Incentive Program information, including statistics, registration information, and pages directed at healthcare professionals, hospitals, payers & associations, and patients & families. MPHI used the WordPress content management system, and worked with the client and partners to design and develop the website and present information in an easily accessible manner.

Third Party Liabilities

Third Party Liabilities

Centers:

While Medicaid pays for medical care for eligible individuals, it pays only after all other resources available to these individuals have been exhausted. Other resources, or third parties, may include Medicare, employment-related health insurance, and private health insurance, among others. Third Party Liability work allows the state to save Medicaid money by finding these other resources and documenting them to ensure that Medicaid money is used only after third party payers have fulfilled their obligations to the individual. Each liability coverage the Third Party Liability team adds averages nearly $200 in cost avoidance per member, per month. This savings can be used to support other individuals on Medicaid, and helps to ensure that beneficiaries get the health coverage they need.

MPHI supports Medicaid operations in the state of Michigan by providing staff with specialized knowledge to aid the Medical Services Administration in a variety of activities created by changing policy, laws, and administrative rules. By utilizing MPHI’s existing talent base and resources pool, the Medical Services Administration is able to access the expertise it needs to complete its projects efficiently and effectively. With additional expert knowledge on hand, many common barriers to project success may be avoided, enabling Michigan Medicaid to function more smoothly and effectively, and ultimately benefiting all Michigan residents.

Behavioral Health 1115 Waiver Evaluation

Behavioral Health 1115 Waiver Evaluation

Centers:

The Section 1115 Pathway to Integration waiver proposal in Michigan is a behavioral health waiver. It is aimed at integrating the coverages of services and supports for individuals with serious mental illness, substance use disorders, intellectual and developmental disabilities, and serious emotional disturbances. These individuals often have a high need for support services, and this integrated coverage could streamline the process for the state to develop initiatives aimed at helping these individuals. New initiatives can lead to a reduced cost and a better quality of care for recipients. For this integration to occur, the waiver must be evaluated, approved, and implemented.
