RD281 - Annual Report: Timeliness of Medicaid Long-Term Services and Supports Screenings - CY2019 – August 1, 2020

Executive Summary:

On July 1, 2016, the Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS) implemented the use of an automated system that enables Virginia’s Medicaid Long-Term Services and Supports Screeners to enter Screening results into an on-line electronic portal. Mandatory use of the electronic screening system enables DMAS to track the number of Screenings conducted and monitor the length of time it takes between the receipt of a request for a Screening and completion of a Screening. Due to a variety of interventions and improved communications, Virginia’s community screening compliance has greatly improved in conducting Screenings within 30 days of a request.
