Texas Medicaid and CHIP in Perspective. Tenth Edition

Texas Medicaid and CHIP in Perspective. Tenth Edition

The ICF/IID program provides ongoing evaluation and individual program planning, as well as 24-hour supervision, coordination, and integration of health or rehabilitative services to help individuals with an intellectual disability or relation conditions function to their greatest ability. A related condition is a severe and chronic disability, other than an intellectual disability (ID) or mental illness, which originates before age 22 and is found to be closely related to ID because the condition substantially limits life activity similar to that of individuals with an ID and requires treatment or services similar to those required for individuals with an ID. Related conditions include disabilities such as cerebral palsy, epilepsy, spina bifida, and head injuries. Adults receiving services through the ICF/IID program will be enrolled in the STAR+PLUS Medicaid managed care program to receive their basic health services through this model. Children under age 21 receiving services through the ICF/IID program have the option to enroll in STAR+PLUS for their basic health services. LTSS will continue to be provided through the ICF/IID program.

Flip Chip Ball Grid Array Package Reference Guide

Flip Chip Ball Grid Array Package Reference Guide

Most assembly operations have found flip chip BGA packages to be robust and manufacturing-friendly, and able to fit easily within existing processes and profiles. Flip chip BGA packages do not require special handling in package form; however, as with any printed circuit assembly, extraordinary care should be taken to avoid unnecessary bending, flexing, or bowing of the PCB which could result in damage to the solder joints. Furthermore, as ball pitch becomes smaller, layout methodology and accuracy of placement become more critical.

database—such as federal, health plan, academic, and research institution websites—may also contain data on state Medicaid and CHIP programs. Finally, states may make some measures available to the public in forms not accessible through the web, and these measures are not reflected in the database. Users should also be aware that the database does not catalogue or attempt to standardize all the individual performance measures that are contained in publicly available performance measure reports found using the methodologies outlined above. Measures are named as they appear in state reports. To the extent that states use different terminology to describe the same performance measure, or the same terminology to describe measures that are calculated in different ways, these idiosyncracies are reflected in the database. For example, one state might calculate “total enrollment” by counting the number of beneficiaries enrolled on the last day of the state fiscal year, while another state calculates “total enrollment” by counting beneficiaries who were enrolled at any point during the calendar year.

IMPACT ON TEXAS IF MEDICAID IS ELIMINATED

IMPACT ON TEXAS IF MEDICAID IS ELIMINATED

However, a TDI analysis indicates that premium levels, cost sharing provisions, and specific eligibility criteria make these programs unlikely and unaffordable options for low income Texans currently eligible for Medicaid or CHIP (See Appendix E for TDI’s analysis of Texas high risk pools). CONTINGENCY / TRANSITION PLAN FOR LOSS OF FEDERAL MEDICAID FUNDING If federal Medicaid funding were eliminated or severely curtailed, state policy makers could respond with a range of actions designed to preserve health coverage for some current Medicaid and CHIP clients using the state share of funding. Since the state share of Medicaid and CHIP represents only 40% of current program spending, available options would require policy makers to consider numerous tradeoffs between covering a smaller number of clients with the greatest medical needs, covering a larger number of less expensive clients, and covering a more limited set of benefits than is offered under the current program. The Heritage Foundation, coupled with the Nevada analysis, suggests one

CDC funds also allowed for the successful recruitment of a School-Based Dental Sealant Coordinator in March 2011. The Office of Oral Health’s dental sealant demonstration project has served as a guide for the development of new and existing policies and programs that support statewide oral disease prevention and community-based public health prevention services. The Office of Oral Health subsequently received a 3-year $1.5M grant ($500,000/year) from the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) which included among its many activities for the grant, expansion of its school-based dental sealant program. As a result, the Office of Oral Health for the first time issued a RFA in FY 2013 for local health departments to develop statewide school-based and/or school-linked dental sealant programs for their own jurisdictions. Eight local health departments were awarded grants for the first time under this RFA in July 2012. Local health departments receiving these grants are: Allegany, Baltimore, Charles, Howard, Kent, Prince George’s, Somerset, and Wicomico Counties.
