Medicaid Managed Long Term Services & Supports (MLTSS)

Managed Long Term Services & Supports (MLTSS) refers to the
delivery of long-term services and supports through New Jersey
Medicaid?s NJ FamilyCare program. MLTSS is designed to expand
home and community-based services, promote community inclusion
and ensure quality and efficiency.

Horizon NJ Health coordinates all services for MLTSS members. The
program provides comprehensive services and supports, whether at
home, in an assisted living facility, in community residential services,
or in a nursing home. Behavioral Health is managed by Beacon.



Currently Beacon manages the Mental Health and Opioid
Treatment Services for Horizon NJ Health.





6 Government Programs

Horizon NJ TotalCare (HMO SNP)
Fully Integrated Dual Eligible Special Needs Plan (FIDE-SNP)

The FIDE-SNP plan is known as Horizon NJ TotalCare (HMO SNP).

FIDE-SNP is a Medicare Advantage plan that integrates all covered Medicare and Medicaid
managed care benefits into one health plan, including primary care and preventive services,
behavioral health and long-term care. Members receive quality care designed to meet all of
their needs.

*Horizon NJ Health will continue to pay both the Medicare and Medicaid components of claims
for Horizon NJ TotalCare (HMO SNP) members, eliminating the need to file Medicare claims
separately; however, any other coverage available for a Horizon NJ TotalCare (HMO SNP)
member should be filed first with that insurance program.

The most important features of the plan are:

? A team of doctors, specialists, and Horizon Care Managers working together for the FIDE-
SNP member

? A Model of Care that calls for individual care plans for each member

? No copayments, premiums or deductibles for most covered services.


Currently, Beacon manages the outpatient and inpatient mental health services for
Horizon NJ Health.

public funding for services and supports that assist New Jersey

Electronic Claim Submission

We encourage all Horizon NJ Health providers who have not yet begun to receive their payments
using Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) to sign up.

Advantages:
? With EFT, your reimbursement cycle will be accelerated, since providers can receive EFT

payments more quickly than check payments sent through the mail.

? Payments can be distributed more securely by virtually eliminating check payments lost in
the mail, and this can help increase cash flow. In most situations, funds are available on the
date the payment is credited to the provider's bank account

How to sign up:
? Dial 1-866-506-2830, option 1 for more information
? Email or visit the Horizon NJ Heath online to sign up:

? Email: eftenrollment@changehealthcare.com
