The Illinois School-Based Health Alliance, sponsored by EverThrive Illinois, will be hosting a webinar series covering various topics related to Medicaid Managed Care and School Health Centers (SHCs). This technical assistance opportunity is designed to strengthen relationships and care coordination between SHCs and Managed Care Organizations (MCOs) and ensure that SHCs are integrated into the State’s Medicaid managed care landscape. The series will include:
Webinar 1: Medicaid Managed Care: Billing and Contracting - Part 1
This first webinar of the series includes representatives from EverThrive IL, IDPH, and HFS, and outlines Medicaid MCO contracting expectations. There is also a question and answer period.
Webinar 2: Medicaid Managed Care Toolkit Launch
The second webinar in the series will focuses on the launch of EverThrive IL's Medicaid Managed Care Toolkit and will walk attendees through information such as: a list of standard billing timelines for each MCO, provider credentialing resources, sample contract language, and marketing materials for introducing your SHC to MCOs.
Webinar 3: Billing Nuts and Bolts
This third webinar in our series will focus on proper FFS billing and coding for school health centers. The goal of this webinar is to provide basic information on billing and coding that will likely be standard across the various Medicaid health plans. Individuals from the Department of Healthcare and Family Services (HFS) and the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) will be presenting.
Webinar 4: Illinois School Health Centers (SHCs): Partners in Health Care
The Illinois School-Based Health Alliance (ISBHA) provided an introductory SHC webinar to the Medicaid managed care plans to share information about the school health center (SHC) model. Through this webinar, health plans received information on this unique model of care, its reach, impact, and value. The ISBHA also discussed exciting opportunities to support health plans as they continue to strengthen their relationships with SHCs.
