Update: Medicaid Coverage and Continuous Enrollment
We wanted to share some information we received from DHHS about an important Medicaid update.
During the past two years, many people had their Medicaid automatically renewed by the state. As of April 1, 2023 beneficiaries can lose Medicaid coverage for failure to do redeterminations on a timely basis.
See the full presentation for important things to consider.
New Hampshire National Core Indicator (NCI) In-Person Surveys
The Bureau of Developmental Services (BDS) is conducting the 2022/2023 New Hampshire National Core Indicator (NCI) In-Person Surveys. A Moore Center staff will be calling for consent to schedule an NCI survey with a CSNI trained surveyor/interviewer.
What is the NCI Program?
NCI is a voluntary effort by state developmental disability agencies to track their performance using a standardized set of consumer and family surveys with nationally validated measures.
Now Hiring - We'll Train You To Become a Direct Support Professional!
Want to make a difference in someone’s life, while making a difference in yours too? Become a Direct Support Professional (also called a Life Skills Coach.)
A Direct Support Professional (DSP) is a coach, mentor and teacher. They help individuals with intellectual disabilities, like autism & Down syndrome, develop the skills needed to integrate into the community and pursue opportunities for employment, improving their overall quality of life.
Manchester PD and The Moore Center Partner for Training
We’re very proud of the important work we are doing with the Manchester NH Police to collaborate on a year-long training project focusing on police interaction with people with autism and other developmental disabilities.
The initial ‘Train the Trainer’ session is complete, and we’ll be providing additional support in the development of practical actions that lead to increased sensitivity and de-escalation techniques.
Important Client Rights Reporting Information
As you know, understanding and supporting every client’s rights is everyone’s responsibility, and one that we take very seriously. It has come to our attention that there are currently issues with the BDS complaint call line, making it difficult to get through.
If you’re finding that you cannot get through, please send the complaint information directly to Erica Ross-Skianes, either by email Er******************@dh**.gov or phone (603-271-5129).
Family-Centered Early Supports & Services
Now available through Telehealth, using either phone or video conferencing.
Concerned about how your child is talking, moving, or behaving? Wondering if your child is meeting their developmental milestones? We Can Help!
Early intervention is CRITICAL for these children, and beginning early enhances the chances for a more positive result. If you feel that your infant or toddler (aged birth through two) may have developmental issues, you can request a free evaluation.
Conflict-Free Case Management
If you have a family member who receives services through the Developmental Service System of Area Agencies you may have you heard about the Corrective Action Plan (CAP) that NH is under, related to the Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Waivers through the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS).
The three 1915 (c) waivers affected by this CAP are Developmental Services, Acquired Brain Disorder, and Children’s In-Home Services.
The compliance issues addressed in the CAP focus on conflict of interest between case management and direct service delivery; and compliance with Medicaid billing rules, which allow providers to bill directly to the State.
A Brief History of the NH Regional Service System
Matthew Ertas, former Chief of the Bureau of Developmental Services, gives a lecture to Moore Center staff about the history of services for people with disabilities in NH.
Matthew brings a wealth of knowledge on the history of New Hampshire’s Regional Service System and its evolution to today’s model. Watch the full video presentation here!
