Expansion of the Long Term Care Capitated Assistance Program (LTCCAP); Request for Information
[28 Pa.B. 3549]
The LTCCAP demonstration project is a replication of the On Lok Model Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE). Under this Request for Information (RFI), the Department of Public Welfare (Department) is asking organizations interested in participating as an LTCCAP provider during Fiscal Year 1998-1999 to contact the Department. Providers will be responsible to provide a specific package of services to individuals who are eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid and have been determined to require nursing facility services. In order to be considered for an LTCCAP site during Fiscal Year 1998-1999, organizations must be enrolled in the Medical Assistance Program, meet the requirements included in the PACE Protocols, and have a completed feasibility study through a PACE Technical Assistance Center.
The Department will consider, among other things, the following factors when determining site selection for the LTCCAP demonstration project:
* Medical Assistance service need
* Medical Assistance service availability (underbedded, overbedded, home and community based services, and the like)
* Project location (suburban v. urban, existing project sites, and the like)
* Uniqueness of project design (closing existing nursing facility beds, collaboration efforts, and the like)
Any questions regarding PACE Protocols or the feasibility study through a PACE Technical Assistance Center should be directed to Cindy Proper at the telephone number listed.
If you feel you meet the above criteria, and are interested in being considered to provide services during Fiscal Year 1998-1999, please submit a letter of interest, along with a copy of your completed feasibility study by August 22, 1998 to: LTCCAP, Division of LTC Client Services, Department of Public Welfare, 4th Floor Bertolino Building, P. O. Box 2675, Harrisburg, PA 17105. (717) 772-2525
