This excerpt taken from the MOH 10-K filed Mar 14, 2007. Identification

The HMO must develop and maintain a system and procedures for identifying Members with Special Health Care Needs (MSHCN), including people with disabilities or chronic or complex medical and behavioral health conditions and Children with Special Health Care Needs (CSHCN)1.

The HMO must contact Members pre-screened by the HHSC Administrative Services Contractor as MSHCN to determine whether they meet the HMO’s MSHCN assessment criteria, and to determine whether the Member requires special services described in this section. The HMO must provide information to the HHSC Administrative Services Contractor that identifies Members who the HMO has assessed to be MSHCN, including any Members pre-screened by the HHSC Administrative Services Contractor and confirmed by the HMO as a MSHCN. The information must be provided, in a format and on a timeline to be specified by HHSC in the Uniform Managed Care Manual, and updated with newly identified MSHCN by the 10th day of each month. In the event that a MSHCN changes HMOs, the HMO must provide the receiving contractor information concerning the results of the HMO’s identification and assessment of that Member’s needs, to prevent duplication of those activities.

The CONTRACTOR will identify Enrollees with Special Health Care Needs using a process at the initial contact made by the CONTRACTOR Representative to educate the client and will offer the client care coordination or case management services. Care coordination services are services to assist the client in obtaining Medically Necessary Covered Services from the CONTRACTOR or another entity if the medical service is not covered under the Contract.
