CMA/DVR Roundtables

All Case Managers, Supervisors, and staff responsible for referrals are invited to attend the upcoming Roundtable sessions that are hosted by the Department of Health Care Policy and Financing (HCPF) and the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR). The objective of the Roundtable sessions this year is two-fold: 1) Education and 2) Networking.

There are two remaining sessions that align with the CMA Transition Phases. Each session will run from 10 a.m. to noon.

 What to Expect?

  • Brief update related to Case Management Redesign
  • Training on the intersection between DVR and DD/SLS Waiver Supported Employment
  • Networking opportunity with the DVR office(s) that serve your designated area
  • Confirm/establish contacts between your organization and DVR office(s)
  • Share your intake process
  • Outline your current (if any) referral process to DVR

Representation from CMAs is critical to the success of the Roundtable sessions. Thank you in advance for your participation and partnership! Ensuring CMAs have appropriate contacts with DVR and staff understand the sequencing of funding that can exist between DVR and CMAs will be invaluable in supporting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in their employment goals. 

If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Jenny Jordan, Supported Employment HCBS Benefit Specialist at Jenny.Jordan@state.co.us.

ARPA 5.04 CMA/RAE Care and Case Management Best Practices Project Update

In February 2023, HCPF, with the support of a contractor, John Snow Training and Research Institute, Inc. (JSI Inc.), began conducting a process improvement project to improve communication, collaboration, and coordination for Health First Colorado members with long-term disabilities and/or complex medical/behavioral conditions. The project is focused on improving care for Long-term Services and Support (LTSS) members who are assigned to a Regional Accountable Entity (RAE) and a Home and Community-Based Waiver (HCBS) case management agency.

Over the past 12 months, JSI Inc. has been gathering stakeholder input through interviews and focus groups to identify RAE/CMA best practices that will improve agency communication, collaboration, and coordination with and for members. The best practices that JSI, Inc. identified can be put into 5 categories with the overall goal of improving member experience. The categories are:

  • Intra-Inter-Agency Alignment and Collaboration
  • RAE and CMA Role Clarification, Collaboration and Coordination
  • Data Sharing and Technology
  • Payment and Performance
  • Contracts and Oversight
  • Member Experience and Satisfaction

HCPF will be sharing opportunities to learn more about this project in upcoming communications.
