Mental Health Services Tasmania has adopted the Prevention and Recovery Care (PARC) model of care from the Department of Human Services Victoria. The PARC model is conceptually seen as part of the acute end of the service continuum, one level back from adult acute inpatient setting. In this context, ‘prevention’ refers to the capacity to intervene early in the relapse process, while ‘recovery’ refers to maximising persons well-being through providing post-acute support and interventions aimed at laying a foundation for self-management, relapse prevention and rehabilitation.

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Medicare Program, other Federal agencies operating health plans or providing health care, State Medicaid agencies, private health plans, health care providers, and health care clearinghouses must assure their customers (for example, patients, insured individuals, providers, and health plans) that the integrity, confidentiality, and availability of electronic protected health information they collect, maintain, use, or transmit is protected. The confidentiality of health information is threatened not only by the risk of improper access to stored information, but also by the risk of interception during electronic transmission of the information. The purpose of this final rule is to adopt national standards for safeguards to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronic protected health information. Currently, no standard measures exist in the health care industry that address all aspects of the security of electronic health information while it is being stored or during the exchange of that information between entities.

At the onset of the TOHSS grant, the Oral Health Florida/SOHIP Coordinator transitioned into the TOHSS Project Coordinator position following the end of the SOHIP grant in 2007. The TOHSS Project Coordinator position became vacant in July 2009 and was filled in March 2010. The Public Health Dental Director became vacant in May 2009 and remained vacant for nearly a year and a half. A new Public Health Dental Director was hired in May 2010, but left the position in October 2010. The position has remained vacant since that time. In addition, there have been other staff reductions and vacancies in the Public Health Dental Program, resulting in a delay of focused efforts and TOHSS grant funds being expended. Despite the staffing changes affecting the TOHSS Project coordination and overall Public Health Dental Program, the TOHSS Project Coordinator has had the support of Department of Health leadership to facilitate activities with current internal staff and state partners to establish a transition plan ensuring that Oral Health Florida would continue beyond the TOHSS grant conclusion.

[Adolescent mental health screening public awareness campaign] – Between 7 million to 10 million teenagers suffer from a mental health condition which, for many, may lead to serious behavioral problems including dropping out of school, substance abuse, violence, and suicide. The Committee is aware that some school districts, juvenile justice facilities, and community- based clinics have taken advantage of relatively simple screening tools now available to detect depression, the risk of suicide, and other mental disorders in teenagers. The Committee believes that screening should occur with the consent of the adolescent and his or her parents or guardian, and with a commitment by the screener to make counseling and treatment for those found to be at-risk. The Committee strongly urges SAMHSA to make the availability of these screening programs more widely known, and to collaborate with the Department of Education, Department of Justice, CDC, HRSA, and other pertinent agencies to encourage implementation of similar teenage screening programs. The Committee expects to receive a report on steps being taken to promote this effort prior to the fiscal year 2005 appropriations hearings. (Pages 179-180).

distinction between those cases that fall within the definition of a SSO but are more in keeping with the LOS generally associated with a LTCH (for example, a case assigned to LTC–DRG 482 with SSO threshold of 32.1 days, would still be paid as a SSO if the patient was treated in the LTCH for 25 days) and those cases that many commenters referred to as ‘‘Very Short Stay Outliers (VSSO)’’ or ‘‘Very Short Stay Discharges (VSSD).’’ In the finalized SSO policy, described elsewhere in these responses, the payment formula particularly takes into account our very strong belief that LTCHs are acute care hospitals that specialize in treating patients requiring ‘‘long-stay’’ hospital-level care. The LTCH PPS has been designed and calibrated to pay specifically for that type of care. Since the inception of the LTCH PPS, when we established the SSO adjustment (67 FR 5594 through 55995, August 30, 2002) under our payment regulations at § 412.529, we have provided that if a LTCH treats patients not requiring a long stay, Medicare pays the LTCH based on the applicable payment adjustment option, described above. Furthermore, as we revise the payment options in this final rule for the SSO policy, we continue to believe that such a payment adjustment is reasonable for all short stay patients, including those that die shortly after their admission to the LTCH. The FY 2004 MedPAR data indicates that 43 percent of all patients that die in LTCHs are deaths that occur within the first 14 days of the stay, with 35 percent of SSO deaths occurring within the first 7 days following admission. As we have since the inception of the LTCH PPS, we continue to believe that Medicare payments for those death cases occurring within the SSO threshold should be determined under the SSO policy since the length of the patient’s treatment in the LTCH did not utilize the full measure of hospital resources

People enrolled in both Medicaid and Medicare have complex and often costly health care needs. With the passage of the Affordable Care Act, the Administration introduced multiple initiatives that have vastly improved the coordination of care for dual-eligible beneficiaries. The 2017 President’s Budget builds upon this foundation and includes a series of legislative proposals to improve access for dual-eligible beneficiaries, while decreasing overlap and inefficiencies that currently exist between the two payors. This effort includes creating an integrated appeals process for dually eligible beneficiaries, simplifying the process for receiving Medicare Savings Program benefits, coordinating review of dual special needs plan marketing materials, and making sure low-income individuals newly-eligible for Medicare have Part D coverage during their transition between payors and plans.

Response: In the preamble of the January 1998 proposed rule, we suggested that the critical factor would be the degree of control the physician had over the PT provider and the extent of the PT provider’s relationship with the SNF. We are abandoning that analysis. We think the proper focus is whether the physician is making a referral to the PT provider within the meaning of section 1877 of the Act. In other words, we believe that a physician can make a referral of DHS ‘‘to an entity’’ even though the referral is first directed or routed through another person or entity, provided the physician has reason to know the identity of the actual provider of the service. In the SNF/PT provider example, the relevant inquiry is whether the physician has made a referral, directly or indirectly, to the entity furnishing DHS, in other words, whether he or she is referring ‘‘to’’ that entity. Accordingly, if the physician referring the patient to the SNF knows that the PT company in which he or she has an investment interest will furnish DHS to the patient or could reasonably be expected to know that the PT company will actually furnish DHS to the patient, the referral is a referral ‘‘to the entity’’ and is prohibited, unless an exception applies. Similarly, where the PT company knows or has reason to suspect that the referral for DHS came from a referring physician with whom the PT company has a prohibited financial relationship, the PT company cannot submit the claim for the DHS. The PT/SNF example will be affected by the advent of full consolidated billing for SNFs, as described above in the responses to comments on indirect compensation arrangements.

For rehabilitation services, like Community Support, Psychosocial Rehabilitation (PSR), or Assertive Community Treatment (ACT), medical necessity has a special meaning. These services must help you get back functions that have been interfered with by a mental illness. At times a mental illness may make it hard for a person to remember the steps to take care of themselves or to get a job. Rehabilitation services can help you learn and practice ways to overcome such negative effects of an illness.

Applicants proposing to use mobile medical vans for the delivery of primary care services may do so as a new access point only if it is a new mobile medical van added to an existing fleet or is a new addition for a heath center that previously did not have a mobile medical van in its approved scope of project. To be eligible as a new access point, the proposed mobile medical van must be fully equipped and staffed by health center clinicians providing direct primary care services (e.g., primary medical or oral health services) at various locations. Mobile vans do not need to provide services on a regularly scheduled basis, although this is encouraged to provide continuity and access to care for the target population. Proposals to expand the operation of an existing mobile van within the current scope of project (e.g., add new providers or services, expand hours of operation at current locations) are NOT eligible for consideration for NAP funding. Similarly, vans that are not equipped or utilized for direct patient care are not considered service sites and are therefore not eligible for NAP funding.

The multisystem approach views individuals as being nested within a complex network of interconnected systems that encompass individual, family, and extra-familial (peer, school, neighborhood) factors. Invention may be necessary in any one or a combination of these systems. Intervention strategies, therefore are integrated into a social ecological context and include strategic family therapy, structural family therapy, behavioral parent training, and cognitive behavior therapies.

One of the most successful approaches to treatment and recovery from alcoholism and addiction is the 12-Step program model. Many of those who participate in 12- Step mutual support programs, such as Alcoholics Anonymous (A.A.) or Narcotics Anonymous (N.A.), turn to their faith for support, because of the strong spirituality component of the programs. Those struggling with addiction may especially turn to clergy for assistance when they are completing the 5th Step. The 5th Step is the telling of one’s life story, a self-confession, and an opportunity for casting out one’s mistakes, failures, and anxieties by telling another person. This is when a clergy member can provide an essential service in helping addicted parents and their families find recon- ciliation and insight into new directions in their lives. 4

Because of the confidential nature of the work in which many SAMHSA grantees are involved, it is important to have safeguards protecting individuals from risks associated with their participation in SAMHSA projects. All applicants (including those who plan to obtain IRB approval) must address the seven elements below. Be sure to discuss these elements as they pertain to on-line counseling (i.e., telehealth) if they are applicable to your program. If some are not applicable or relevant to the proposed project, simply state that they are not applicable and indicate why. In addition to addressing these seven elements, read the section that follows entitled Protection of Human Subjects Regulations to determine if the regulations may apply to your project. If so, you are required to describe the process you will follow for obtaining Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval. While we encourage you to keep your responses brief, there are no page limits for this section and no points will be assigned by the Review Committee. Problems with confidentiality, participant protection, and the protection of human subjects identified during peer review of the application must be resolved prior to funding.

ease, yet a gap exists between medical science and public knowledge about the condition. No large- scale comprehensive osteoporosis education projects exist in the WWAMI region. Student vol- unteers in this first year of the SCOP attended an informational workshop presented by members of the Department of Medicine, School of Nurs- ing, and a clinical nutritionist. Topics included (1) background information on osteoporosis as a public health problem, (2) effective prevention strategies, and (3) stages of change of a health ed- ucation model. The students also were provided with a Patient Education Kit developed by the National Osteoporosis Foundation. This kit con- tains basic information on osteoporosis, age-spe- cific information that can be used appropriately to target the audience, and suggestions for con- tacting and working with local media. Once the students reached their community sites, patient education pamphlets on a variety of osteoporo- sis-related topics were shipped to them. The com- munity preceptor was enlisted to help identify venues for the students’ presentations, such as community events, retirement homes, grocery stores, and 4H groups. Focus groups of the stu- dent participants will be conducted to assess the experience for use in planning. Future plans for the program include expansion into other topics and into other health science school training pro- grams, including the physician assistant and nurse practitioner programs.
