October 2018 Group Watch: New Medicaid Program

Governor Ivey recently announced that the federal government has approved a new statewide care-management program to complement and enhance the state’s current system of long-term care services provided to approximately 23,000 Alabama Medicaid recipients. The Integrated Care Network (ICN) program was approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in September, to offer more community options for Medicaid longterm care recipients. The ICN program is for Medicaid recipients who live in a nursing home setting, or receive services in their home through Medicaid’s Elderly and Disabled (E&D) waiver or the Alabama Community Transition (ACT) waiver. The state will implement a system of case management, outreach and education, with the goal of increasing the number of persons receiving in-home care rather than living in a nursing home facility.
