CCC Update

The Department of Medical Services (DMAS) has posted a locality status page that provides current locality participation status relative to the three Medicare/Medicaid Plans (MMPs) participating in the Commonwealth Coordinated Care (CCC) program.  While it is not the VHCA-suggested format, it is clearly more user-friendly than utilizing the MMP comparison charts to try and figure out which MMP is in which locality.  Not explicit on the DMAS table, you should be aware that in a locality with only one MMP, “passive” enrollment, better known as auto-enrollment, is not allowed (two or more MMPs are required for auto-enrollment).  In other words, if the locality you are interested in only has one check mark, they are currently only allowing opt-in to CCC.  The DMAS locality status table can be found here, click on “MMP Participation by Locality”.
