Program helps vulnerable Seniors MEGAN PARROTT Staff Writer (712) 325-5742

For southwest Iowa seniors wishing to retain their independence, staying at home has become a more viable option. The Case Management Program for the Frail Elderly coordinates community services for vulnerable seniors to prevent premature institutionalism. CMPFE is administered by the Iowa Department on Aging and is operated by 13 area agencies on aging in the state, including Southwest 8 Seniors Services at 300 W. Broadway Suite 240. To qualify for the free case management program offered through Southwest 8, potential consumers must be at least 60 years old and reside in Cass, Fremont, Harrison, Mills, Montgomery, Page, Pottawattamie or Shelby counties. In addition, individuals must need assistance with daily activities relating to grooming, homemaking services and transferring, for example. Qualified services include: ■ Adult day care ■ Assistive devices, which aid people to become more independent, such as hands-free telephones, grab bars or shower chairs and wheelchairs ■ Chore services, such as assistance with heavy

housework or yard work ■ Consumer directed attendant care: assistance doing things that the client would normally be able to do if able ■ Home delivered meals ■ Home health aide services ■ Homemaker services, such as preparing meals, shopping and light housework ■ Home/vehicle maintenance or modification ■ Mental health outreach ■ Nursing care ■ Nutritional counseling ■ Personal emergency response systems ■ Respite ■ Senior companions ■ Transportation Sherrie McDonald, RN, is the case manager coordinator for Southwest 8 Senior Services. She oversees the program in this corner of the state and supervises the 13 case managers on staff at Southwest 8. The Case Management Program for the Frail Elderly serves roughly 550 individuals in southwest Iowa at any one time. Another 20 to 30 are in the process of getting into or exiting the program, said McDonald. To get involved with the program, individuals and their families are encouraged to contact Southwest 8. If it appears that the individual will qualify, Southwest 8 will recommend making an application

for the Medicaid Elderly Waiver program through the Department of Human Services. “The benefit to the individual and their family is that if they qualify for the Medicaid Elderly Waiver program, that program will pay for many of the services they would need to be able to safely stay in their own homes,” said McDonald. Once financial eligibility is determined, a form is sent to the individual’s physician so level of care can be established. If approved financially and physically through a doctor, DHS refers the individual back to Southwest 8, at which point a case manager is assigned. Alternatively, non-

waiver clients (individuals not yet 65 or those who do not meet the

The rest of the process is the same, said McDonald. “If someone doesn’t qualify for the Elderly Waiver program and needs services, we seek for other funding sources to help meet their needs,” said McDonald. “If an individual can afford it, they pay for their services privately, but case managers can still assist getting those referrals made and remain as the case manager to help ensure the needed care is obtained.” Within 30 days after assignment, a case manager makes a home visit to complete an initial assessment of the client. At this time, a care plan is drawn up to list the home and community based services that would assist the individual in staying at home. “As the care plan is put together, the client always has the choice of what services they would like to have and what agency they would like to provide the service,” said McDonald. To move along the selection process, case managers have lists of approved Medicaid service providers. After establishing a care plan, the case manager will make initial contact to various service providers based on the consumer’s needs to

Once the initial care place is set and services have begun, case managers also make quarterly face-to-face visits and monthly phone calls to ensure everything is going well with the consumer. Clients are free to contact case managers as they need to, as well. “The biggest advantage of having a case

Iowa SMP Monthly News Medicare Fraud Report Recent news from the Department of Justice, is a reminder that Medicare beneficiaries should continue to be vigilant for signs of suspected fraud. The U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin recently announced that the corporation doing business as “Dr. Comfort” has agreed to plead guilty to felony charges of mail fraud (while defrauding Medicare) and will pay a $27 million civil settlement. Dr. Comfort is a widely advertised company that sells therapeutic shoes typically used by persons with diabetes and severe foot disease. From 2004 – 2006 Dr.

Comfort sold shoes and inserts advertised as complying with Medicare requirements. In fact, they continued to market and sell these products even after being advised by

Medicare officials they didn’t meet Medicare criteria. The CEO of the company will be excluded from participating in federal health care programs, including

Medicare and Medicaid, for 15 years and will be sentenced to possible jail time. The Dr. Comfort business will be closely monitored by the Office of Inspector General for five years, under a “cor-

porate integrity agreement.” Senior Medicare Patrol’s message to readers of this news is that Medicare beneficiaries MEDICARE/See Page 9

red flags that you CAN recognize by reading your Medicare Summary Notice. For instance: ■ Charges for something you didn’t get. ■ Billing for the same
