Expansion of the Long Term Care Capitated Assistance Program; Request for Information
[29 Pa.B. 6376]
The Long Term Care Capitated Assistance Program (LTCCAP) 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 1999-2000 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. To be considered for an LTCCAP site during Fiscal Year 1999-2000, 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 LTCCAP:
* 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)
Questions regarding PACE Protocols or the feasibility study through a PACE Technical Assistance Center should be directed to Cindy M. Proper at (717) 772-2525.
Individuals who feel they meet the above criteria, and are interested in being considered to provide services during Fiscal Year 1999-2000, 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, 4th Floor Bertolino Building, P. O. Box 2675, Harrisburg, PA 17105.
