Are HARPs required to have case managers? How are clients assigned to Health Home Care Managers?
Yes, HARPs are required to have case managers. The expectation is that most face to face care management will be done through the Health Homes. Each Health Home has its own assignment process.
Can a recipient of adult Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) also receive Health Home Care Coordination without duplication of services?
Yes. All clients receiving adult HCBS are eligible for Health Home Care Coordination.
For adult BH HCBS clients, what are tiers 1 and 2?
Client tier status is determined by the brief Community Mental Health Assessment. Tier 1 indicates eligibility for select HCBS services including Employment, Education and Peer Supports. Tier 2 indicates eligibility for the full array of HCBS. The brief assessment may also find that an individual is not eligible for HCBS. All HARP enrolled individuals are eligible for short-term crisis respite.
