More details needed on funding mechanisms for CHWs
I'm hoping to hear more information about how exactly any Community Health Workers were funded using Medicaid dollars. On the call the presenter from Oregon mentioned that billing rates were established which suggests fee for service. I'd appreciate hearing more details. For example:
-- On a fee for service basis, did the CHW program bill the state and/or did it bill managed care organizations?
-- Do managed care organizations provide CHW services as part of the managed care funding they receive from the states (i.e., non-fee for service)?
