OAR 410-138-0005
Payment for Targeted Case Management Services Eligible for Federal Financial Participation


This rule is to be used in conjunction with Targeted Case Management (TCM) rules OAR 410-138-0000 (Targeted Case Management Definitions) through 410-138-0009 (Targeted Case Management — Services Not Covered) and 410-138-0390 (Targeted Case Management Retroactive Payments) and the Division’s General Rules chapter 410, division 120.


The TCM services rules are designed to assist the TCM provider organizations in matching state and federal funds for TCM services defined by Section 1915(g) of the Social Security Act, 42 USC § 1396n(g).


Payment shall be made to the TCM provider enrolled with the Authority as a unit of government provider meeting the requirements set forth in the provider enrollment agreement.


Signing the provider enrollment agreement sets forth the relationship between the State of Oregon, the Authority, and the TCM provider and constitutes agreement by the TCM provider to comply with all applicable Authority rules and federal and state laws and regulations.


The TCM provider shall bill according to administrative rules in chapter 410, division 138 and the TCM supplemental information. Payments shall be made using the Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS), and the TCM provider shall retain the full payment for covered services provided. The TCM provider shall have a Trading Partner Agreement with the Authority prior to submission of electronic transactions.


TCM authorized under these rules is a cost-sharing (Federal Financial Participation (FFP) matching) program in which the TCM provider as a public entity, unit of government, shall pay the non-federal matching share of the amount of the TCM claims, calculated using the Federal Medical Assistance Percentage (FMAP) rates in effect during the quarter when the TCM claims will be paid:


The TCM provider’s non-federal matching share means the public funds share of the Medicaid payment amount. Pursuant to the Social Security Act, 42 CFR 433.51, public funds may be considered as the state’s share in claiming federal financial participation, if the public funds meet the following conditions:


The public funds are transferred to the Authority from public entities that are units of government;


The public funds are not federal funds, or they are federal funds authorized by federal law to be used to match other federal funds; and


All sources of funds shall be allowable under the Social Security Act 42 CFR 433 Subpart B;


The unit of government TCM provider shall pay the non-federal matching share to the Authority in accordance with OAR 410-120-0035 (Public Entity).


Before the Authority pays for TCM claims, the Authority shall receive the corresponding local match payment as described in this rule. Failure to timely pay the non-federal matching funds to the Authority will delay payment.


The Authority shall not be financially responsible for payment of any claim that CMS disallows under the Medicaid program. If the Authority has previously paid the TCM provider for any claim, which CMS disallows, the TCM provider shall reimburse the Authority the amount of the claim that the Authority has paid to the TCM provider, less any amount previously paid by the unit of government TCM provider to the Authority for the non-federal match portion for that claim.


Providers shall only bill Medicaid for allowable activities in the TCM program that assist individuals eligible under the Medicaid State Plan to gain access to needed medical, social, educational, and other services. One or more of the following allowable activities shall occur before billing:




Development of a care plan;


Referral and follow up; and


Monitoring and follow up.


TCM claims may not duplicate payments made to:


Public agencies or private entities for any other case management activities or direct services provided under the State Plan or OHP, through fee for service, managed care, or other contractual arrangement, that meet the same need for the same client at the same point in time;


A TCM provider by program authorities under different funding authority than OHP, including but not limited to other public health funding;


A TCM provider for administrative expenditures reimbursed under agreement with the Authority or any other program or funding source.


Medicaid is only liable for the cost of otherwise allowable case management services if there are no other third parties liable to pay. However, while schools are legally liable to provide IDEA-related health services at no cost to eligible children, Medicaid reimbursement is available for these services because section 1903(c) of the Act requires Medicaid to be primary to the U.S. Department of Education for payment for covered Medicaid services furnished to a child with a disability. These services may include health services included in a child’s Individualized Education Program (IEP) or Individual Family Service Plan (IFSP) under the IDEA. Payment for those services that are included in the IEP or IFSP may not be available when those services are not covered Medicaid services.


The Authority’s acceptance of cost data provided by provider organizations for the purpose of establishing rates paid for TCM services does not imply or validate the accuracy of the cost data provided.


Reimbursement is subject to all rules and laws pertaining to federal financial participation.
