    Correct Answer

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The recipient is informed by the agent that they are not eligible to enroll in a Long-Term Care (LTC) plan because they receive services through the Agency for Persons with Disabilities waiver. This means that the recipient is already receiving services and support from the waiver program, which likely provides them with the necessary care and assistance. Therefore, enrolling in an LTC plan would not be applicable or necessary for them. Hence, the statement is true.

Asking the caller to fax the letter allows for proper documentation and verification of the situation. This will ensure that the member's concerns are addressed and the appropriate actions can be taken to find a new doctor or make necessary changes to the plan if needed.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    When a member has an issue with their plan, the first step they should take is to call the health plan. By contacting the health plan directly, they may be able to provide assistance and guidance in resolving the issue. This allows the member to address their concerns and potentially find a solution without needing to file a grievance or complaint with other entities such as the Area Medicaid Office or DCF.

    Correct Answer
    C. Look in HealthTrack History or FMMIS.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to look in HealthTrack History or FMMIS. This is because these systems contain the necessary information about the member's plan assignment. By reviewing the member's history in HealthTrack or checking the FMMIS system, you can determine whether the member was mandatorily assigned to the current plan or not. This ensures accurate and reliable information for the GC9 submission.

    • C.

      CARES

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    B. Elder Helpline
    Explanation
    Recipients of LTC (Long-Term Care) who require extra help with transitioning from a PACE (Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly) plan should be referred to the Elder Helpline. The Elder Helpline is a resource that provides assistance and guidance to seniors and their families, offering information on a variety of topics including healthcare options and support services. Therefore, referring LTC recipients to the Elder Helpline would be the appropriate course of action in this scenario.

    Rate this question:

    How will PACE enrollees receive their medical services?

    • C.

      Through a MMA plan.

    • D.

      Through a LTC plan.

    Correct Answer
    A. Through PACE because PACE covers medical and LTC services.
    Explanation
    PACE enrollees will receive their medical services through PACE because PACE covers both medical and long-term care (LTC) services. PACE, which stands for Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly, is a comprehensive program that provides coordinated and integrated care for individuals who are eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid. PACE organizations arrange and provide all necessary medical, social, and LTC services for their enrollees, allowing them to receive all their needed care through the PACE program.

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Continue recieving services from the LTC plan for up to 60 days.
    Explanation
    Enrollees in LTC plans who experience a "temporary loss" will continue receiving services from the LTC plan for up to 60 days. This means that even if they temporarily lose their Medicaid coverage, they will still be able to receive the necessary services from the LTC plan during that period. This ensures that individuals do not face a disruption in their care while they work to reinstate their Medicaid coverage.

      Call the Elder Helpline.

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    C. Call the Elder Helpline.
    Explanation
    To complete a plan change from PACE into a LTC plan, the recipient must call the Elder Helpline. This suggests that the Elder Helpline is the appropriate channel for the recipient to request a plan change. The other options, such as completing the plan change online, calling SSA, or calling the SMMC line, are not mentioned as necessary steps for completing the plan change. Therefore, calling the Elder Helpline seems to be the correct course of action in this scenario.

      The member has a PACE exemption.

    • B.

      The member is receiving medical services through a private insurance.

    • C.

      PACE provides medical services as well as LTC services.

    Correct Answer
    C. PACE provides medical services as well as LTC services.
    Explanation
    PACE (Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly) is a healthcare program that provides comprehensive medical and long-term care services to eligible individuals. This includes both medical services, such as doctor visits and hospital care, as well as long-term care services, such as nursing home care and assistance with daily activities. Therefore, if a member is excluded under MMA (Medicare Modernization Act), it means that they are not eligible for PACE services, which include both medical and long-term care services.

    Explanation
