Managed Care - Washington Medicaid Integrated Partnership Pilot (Snohomish)


Revised March 25, 2011



Purpose: Effective January 1, 2005, clients who receive SSI or SSI-related Medicaid in Snohomish County may enroll in Washington Medicaid Integrated Partnership (WMIP) managed care with Molina Healthcare of Washington, Inc. (Molina). Molina provides medical, mental health and substance abuse treatment. Effective October 1, 2006, coverage expands to include long-term care services. WMIP enrollees have a primary care provider (PCP) through Molina. This PCP ensures the person receives the current scope of care by providing healthcare service or referring the person to other healthcare providers. This project is an effort to better coordinate care for SSI and SSI-related clients receiving services from multiple DSHS divisions. The client's enrollment status shows on ACES Managed Care Screen (MANC).

WORKER RESPONSIBILITIES

HCS and DDD staff are responsible for the initial and ongoing assessments of clients choosing WMIP. Molina is responsible for the case management of the client.
