RD360 - Annual Report: Timeliness of Medicaid Long-Term Services and Supports Screenings – CY2020 – August 1, 2021

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 (LTSS) to enter Screening results into an on-line electronic portal. Mandatory use of the electronic screening system enables DMAS to track the number of LTSS 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 has greatly improved the community screening compliance to conduct Screenings within 30 days of a request.
