Primary care case management entities (PCCMe) State Plan Amendment

The Health Care Authority (HCA) is requesting Tribal consultation on the state’s State Plan Amendment 21-0037 which will provide Indian health care providers (IHCPs) the choice of participating in and administering a primary care case management entities (PCCMe) program. 

This page provides a collaborative space for Indian Nations and other Indian health providers to review the draft state plan amendment and find information on the upcoming roundtables and consultations.

About the PCCMe program

The PCCMe program is like the current primary care case management (PCCM) program available to IHCPs in Washington State, but with a larger and more defined list of responsibilities. The addition of the PCCMe program provides the opportunity for IHCPs be recognized and reimbursed for their active role in managing the care of American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) enrollees in the Medicaid fee-for-service program. IHCPs will have the choice of administering the PCCM program, the PCCMe program, or neither program. 

The PCCMe program requires the IHCP to provide the following primary care case management services:

  • Provision of intensive telephonic case management
  • Provision of face-to-face case management
  • Development of enrollee care plans
  • Provision of enrollee outreach and education activities
  • Operation of a customer service call center
  • Implementation of quality improvement activities including administering enrollee satisfaction surveys or collecting data necessary for performance measurement of providers
  • Coordination with behavioral health systems/providers
  • Coordination with long-term services and supports systems/providers
