Update from DHS on PASSE

As you may be aware, the Arkansas Insurance Department has received 5 Letters of Intent from groups intending to form a PASSE.  The next step for those intending to form a PASSE will be the submission of their conditional certification documents to the Arkansas Insurance Department by close of business on July 3, 2017.  Attached you will find three documents that address many outstanding issues and questions we have received regarding the Provider Led Entity model. We will continue to work with everyone to address any concerns raised.  As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. – Brian Bowen

  1. This was dated June 28, 2017; you gave until July 3, 2017 for reply–not nearly enough time to read, understand and reply to all of this.
    You say numerous public comments were made (under Legislative History and Provider & Beneficiary Engagement–I called my daughters case manager and she had never heard of PASSE. Also, I as my daughter’s representative on the waiver program never heard anything about this until the e-mail to my daughter yesterday (June 30, 2017).

  2. How will this affect self directed care? We now use a small local agency for our weekend provider–how will this affect us, as I read the Passe has to be statewide. Will hours of care and pay for hours of care remain the same? Does the Passe determine the hours and pay?

    When you are dealing with someone local, there are advantages in them being more available, etc.
