MLTC Partial Capitation Nursing Home Benefit Limit 3+ Months (NHBL 3+mo): Batch Disenrollment Information

In 2019, the MLTC Partial Capitation (MLTCP) benefit package was changed to limit coverage of long term nursing home stays (LTNHS) to three months and the mandate that dually eligible individuals who are receiving long term nursing home care join an MTLC plan was eliminated. Beginning with enrollments effective February 1, 2020, dually eligible individuals, aged 21 years and older, with an LTNHS designation, are no longer required to enroll in an MLTCP plan.  Individuals with active Medicaid and an LTNHS designation are an excluded population from MLTCP plan enrollment and auto assignment.  Individuals already enrolled in MLTCP plans who have been designated LTNHS and met or exceeded the benefit limitation must be involuntarily disenrolled.  During the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency,  DOH is conducting a "Batch Process" disenrollment three times per year for MLTCP plan enrollees who have been designated LTNHS, have met or exceeded the three month benefit limitation, and who have had their chronic care budgeting (also called institutional budgeting) completed by their Local Department of Social Services (LDSS).
