Services Options Using Resources in Community Environments

 

SOURCE operates under authority of the Elderly and Disabled 1915-c Home and Community Based Services (HCBSS) Medicaid Waiver approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Individuals eligible for enrollment in SOURCE must be eligible for full Medicaid (this excludes SLMB, QMB, and QI). Individuals served by SOURCE must be physically, functionally impaired and in need of services to assist with the performance of the activities of daily living (ADLs). Without waiver services, eligible SOURCE members would require placement in a nursing facility. While individuals, participating in SOURCE under the Elderly and Disabled waiver, do not have specific exclusions related to age, the waiver targets individuals who are elderly and physically disabled. SOURCE through its case management model, Enhanced Primary Care Case Management (EPCCM), links primary care to community services.

 

SOURCE Case Management Provider is enrolled with DCH to provide Enhanced Primary Care Case Management (EPCCM) services for eligible older and physically disabled Medicaid recipients. The model is comprised of three principal components – primary medical care, community services and case management – integrated by the site’s authority to approve Medicaid-reimbursed services.
