Expansion of the Long-Term Care Capitated Assistance Program; Request for Information
[32 Pa.B. 3672]
The Long-Term Care Capitated Assistance Program (LTCCAP) is the Commonwealth's replication of the Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) Model. Under this request for information, the Department of Public Welfare (Department) is asking organizations interested in participating as an LTCCAP provider to contact the Department. Providers will be responsible to provide a specific package of services to individuals enrolled in the program, who are eligible for Medical Assistance (MA) and have been determined to require nursing facility services. To be considered for an LTCCAP site, organizations must be enrolled in the MA Program, meet the requirements included in the PACE Protocol and LTCCAP Provider Agreement 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 LTCCAP:
* MA service need
* MA service availability (availability of nursing facility services, 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)
Questions regarding the PACE Protocol or the feasibility study through a PACE Technical Assistance Center should be directed to Cindy M. Proper at (717) 772-2525.
Organizations that feel they meet the criteria listed in this notice and are interested in being considered to provide services under LTCCAP should submit a letter of interest, along with a copy of their completed feasibility study within 30 days from the date of this publication to LTCCAP, Division of LTC Client Services, Department of Public Welfare, 6th Floor Bertolino Building, P. O. Box 2675, Harrisburg, PA 17105.
Current LTCCAP providers interested in expanding beyond their designated zip code area are also invited to respond to this request. Response should be directed to the previous address and include a letter of interest, along with a market analysis of the area of interest.
