The Human Services Department (the Department), Medical Assistance Division (MAD), is amending the following rules that are part of the New Mexico Administrative Code (NMAC): 8.308.2 NMAC, Managed Care Program, Provider Network 8.308.6 NMAC, Managed Care Program, Eligibility 8.308.7 NMAC, Managed Care Program, Enrollment and Disenrollment 8.308.8 NMAC, Managed Care Program, Member Education 8.308.9 NMAC, Managed Care Program, Benefit Package 8.308.10 NMAC, Managed Care Program, Care Coordination 8.308.11 NMAC, Managed Care Program, Transition of Care 8.308.13 NMAC, Managed Care Program, Member Rewards 8.308.15 NMAC, Managed Care Program, Grievances and Appeals 8.308.21 NMAC, Managed Care Program, Quality Management 8.302.3 NMAC, Medicaid General Provider Policies, Third Party Liability Provider Responsibilities These changes are being proposed to match the requirements of federal rules. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) published federal rules, effective July 5, 2016, that updated Medicaid managed care requirements which the Department must now implement. The federal rules align the requirements governing Medicaid managed care programs, where feasible, with those of other major sources of health care coverage, including Qualified Health Plans and Medicare Advantage plans. The citation for the federal rule is 42 CFR 438 subparts A through J. MAD reviewed the current rules related to managed care to assure they will be in compliance with federal requirements. They were also reviewed for currency and clarity. Necessary changes are being proposed as amendments to the existing managed care organizations (MCO) rules listed above. Also, amendments are being proposed to 8.302.2 NMAC, Medicaid General Provider Policies, Third Party Liability Provider Responsibilities, because of its relationship to managed care organizations. 8.308.2 NMAC MANAGED CARE PROGRAM PROVIDER NETWORK Significant proposed changes include: (1) clarifications and new responsibilities for provider enrollment to meet federal requirements; (2) adds MCO provider access standards; (3) adds a section regarding MCOs contracting with the Indian health service, tribally operated facilities, and urban Indian clinics; (4) adds standards for MCOs regarding credentialing providers. No proposed changes are new limits on services or eligibility, or otherwise negatively impact managed care members. 8.308.6 NMAC MANAGED CARE PROGRAM - ELIGIBILITY Significant proposed changes include: (1) a correction to the list of Medicaid recipient categories that are not enrolled in managed care. This is a correction only and does not change who is actually enrolled in managed care; (2) replaces "12 months" with "13 months", pursuant to a federal rule that specifies a newborn is enrolled for 13 months starting with the month of birth. 8.308.7 NMAC MANAGED CARE PROGRAM ENROLLMENT AND DISENROLLMENT Significant proposed changes include: (1) Changes the auto assignment eligibility period from two months to six months or less; (2) includes language clarifying the retroactive span of eligibility considered for enrollment in managed care "to not to exceed two years" and deleted references to time periods prior to January 1, 2014; (3) adds language clarifying member enrollment periods prior to changing MCO and the time period for issuance of a member identification card by an MCO is changed to 20 calendar days following notification of enrollment. This time period was previously 30 days. 8.308.8 NMAC MANAGED CARE MEMBER EDUCATION Significant proposed changes include: (1) changing the title to read "Member Rights, Responsibilities, and Education; (2) language was added to assure that MCOs comply with federal requirements with regard to supplying informational and educational materials to members and for the civil rights and other rights that MCOs are required to provide to members of an MCO. 8.308.9 NMAC MANAGED CARE BENEFIT PACKAGE Significant proposed changes include: (1) language was added to assure MCOs follow federal requirements regarding providing benefits, citing applicable federal citations; (2) added language to require that MCOs meet all behavioral health parity requirements; (3) added the benefit of health home services; (4) wording was added to physical health benefits to include birth center benefits, licensed birthing center benefits and other covered delivery services; a change is being made stating that routine vision care is not a benefit for a member 21 years and older whose eligibility is as an Alternative Benefit Plan beneficiary.
