Access and Coverage
NJ Medicaid Auto Assignment Quality Incentive Analysis
New Jersey Department of Human Services
The New Jersey Division of Medical Assistance and Health Services (DMAHS) is consistently exploring opportunities to advance quality improvement initiatives, working with managed care organizations (MCOs) to improve the Medicaid program’s service delivery. The goal of this project is for the Center for State Health Policy to provide analytic support to assess possible quality improvement incentives for the MCOs using the Medicaid auto assignment process which occurs when an enrollee fails to select an MCO at the time of enrollment. The Center, working closely with Mercer and DMAHS, will identify candidate metrics, including documentation, data sources and assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of each metric as well as the feasibility and minimum threshold requirements to inform performance management design strategies.

Evaluation of Intensive Mobile Treatment Services (IMTS) for Youth in Children’s System of Care (CSOC) with Co-occurring IDD
NJ Department of Children and Families
Future Visions is a pilot program through the NJ Department of Children and Families, Children’s System of Care, and offers intensive mobile treatment services for families who have high-needs children/youth aged 5-20 with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The aims of the program are to stabilize the children/youth within their homes while building skillsets that advance the goals of independent and productive living as well as community integration. The Center for State Health Policy will lead an evaluation to assess the implementation and preliminary outcomes of the program by conducting surveys and interviews, as well as analysis of data collected through the program over its 2-year pilot phase. The evaluation will inform how the quality and operations of the program can be improved for this population.
