Mental Health - 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline
oncerns without the support and care they need. But there is hope. The 988 Lifeline offers the opportunity to help a countless number of people struggling with suicidal thoughts and health-related distress each day. What is 988? This is an easy-to-remember number that people in crisis can call. It will route them to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (now known as the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline). It is a life-saving resource for people in crisis. It is a number to call to get in touch with trained crisis counselors, not police. When people call or text 988, they will be connected to trained counselors who are part of the existing Lifeline network. These counselors will listen, understand how problems are affecting the callers, provide support, and connect them to resources if necessary. How is 988 different than 911? 988 is not a new service, just a new number. The 988 code was set up to improve access to crisis services in a way that meets our country’s growing suicide and mental health-related crisis care needs. It provides easier access to the Lifeline network and related crisis resources, which are distinct from the public safety purposes of 911 (where the focus is on dispatching Emergency Medical Services, fire and police as needed). Is 988 available for substance use crisis? The Lifeline accepts calls from anyone who needs support for a suicidal, mental health and/or substance use crisis. Is the 988 Lifeline a free service? Yes, the Lifeline answers calls 24/7 in multiple languages. The 988 service also answers texts or chats (English only). Standard data rates from mobile carriers may apply to those who text to the Lifeline. If monetary help is needed for communications needs, please see www.fcc.gov/lifeline-consumers for details. Calls, texts, and chats are available to anyone who needs mental health-related or suicide crisis support. Is Lifeline available for everyone? It is offered to everyone in the United States, providing 24/7, free and confidential support to people in suicidal crisis or emotional distress. The 988 Lifeline offers the opportunity to help a countless number of people struggling with suicidal thoughts and health-related distress each day. If you or someone you know is in crisis, call your local crisis number below. 988 services nationwide continue to be in development, utilize your local resources as needed.

IEHP DualChoice - New to IEHP DualChoice
e important phone numbers including your Doctor, IEHP DualChoice Member Services, and IEHP’s 24-Hour Nurse Advice Line. Be sure to complete your health risk assessment (HRA). When you first join our plan, you get a health risk assessment (HRA) within 90 days before or after your effective enrollment date. We must complete an HRA for you. This HRA is the basis for developing your care plan. The HRA include questions to identify your medical, LTSS, and behavioral health and functional needs. We reach out to you to complete the HRA. We can complete the HRA by an in-person visit, telephone call, or mail. We’ll send you more information about this HRA upon your enrollment with the plan. If our plan is new for you, you can keep using the doctors you use now for a certain amount of time, if they are not in our network. We call this continuity of care. If they are not in our network, you can keep your current providers and service authorizations at the time you enroll for up to 12 months if all of the following conditions are met: You, your representative, or your provider asks us to let you keep using your current provider. We establish that you had an existing relationship with a primary or specialty care provider, with some exceptions. When we say “existing relationship,” it means that you saw an out-of-network provider at least once for a non-emergency visit during the 12 months before the date of your initial enrollment in our plan. We determine an existing relationship by reviewing your available health information available or information you give us. We have 30 days to respond to your request. You can ask us to make a faster decision, and we must respond in 15 days. You or your provider must show documentation of an existing relationship and agree to certain terms when you make the request. Note: You can only make this request for services of Durable Medical Equipment (DME), transportation, or other ancillary services not included in our plan. You cannot make this request for providers of DME, transportation or other ancillary providers. After the continuity of care period ends, you will need to use doctors and other providers in the IEHP DualChoice network that are affiliated with your primary care provider’s medical group, unless we make an agreement with your out-of-network doctor. A network provider is a provider who works with the health plan. Our plan’s PCPs are affiliated with medical groups or Independent Physicians Associations (IPA). When you choose your PCP, you are also choosing the affiliated medical group. This means that your PCP will be referring you to specialists and services that are affiliated with their medical group. A medical group or IPA is a group of physicians, specialists, and other providers of health services that see IEHP Members. Your PCP, along with the medical group or IPA, provides your medical care. This includes getting authorization to see specialists or medical services such as lab tests, x-rays, and/or hospital admittance. In some cases, IEHP is your medical group or IPA. Refer to Chapter 3 of your Member Handbook for more information on getting care. Be prepared for important health decisions Get the My Life. My Choice. app today. It stores all your advance care planning documents in one place online. Advance care planning (ACP) involves shared decision making to write down-in an advance care directive-a person’s wishes about their future medical care.

Innovations and Quality Performance - Our Commitment to Innovation
healthcare needs of our Members for more than two decades. With our Strategic Priorities guiding us, we will continue to seek opportunities for innovation and improvement – putting access to quality healthcare and our Members, Providers and Community above all else. Community Health Assessment The 2022 Inland Empire Community Health Assessment Stakeholder Committee, comprised of over 40 representatives across 25 community organizations, united over the past year to collect and analyze the region’s health and wellness data. The group identified those four at-risk population groups, Senior citizens, communities of color, individuals with low incomes and those living in remote and rural areas, as well as six priority areas of focus: Basic Needs for Health and Safety, Human Housing, Meaningful Work and Wealth, Cardiovascular Disease and Diabetes, Maternal and Infant Health and Mental and Behavioral Health. The committee shared the findings in a first-of-its-kind joint regional Community Health Assessment report. Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) The 2022 Inland Empire Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) identifies the top health and well-being needs of Inland Empire residents. The findings in the CHNA will be used to build community interventions that generate collective investments addressing the identified priorities. There are seven assessments within the CHNA, the first three target the entire Inland Empire region, along with Riverside and San Bernardino counties. The remaining four assessments comprise drilled-down analyses for Montclair Hospital Medical Center, Redlands Community Hospital, San Antonio Regional Hospital and San Gorgonio Memorial Hospital service areas. Click here to view the assessment. Provider Recruitment IEHP’s innovative Network Expansion Fund (NEF) was the first program of its kind in the state. Established in 2014, the NEF allocates $30 million in specially designated funds to attract board-certified PCPs, Specialists and mid-level Providers to the Inland Empire, addressing the region’s chronic Provider shortage and improving access to care for more than 1.2 million IEHP Members. To date, more than 280 Providers have been recruited as a direct result of this program. Behavioral Health Integration Complex Care Initiative The Behavioral Health Integration Complex Care Initiative (BHICCI) is a collaboration between IEHP and more than 30 clinics in the Inland Empire that provides a footprint for the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) Health Homes Program, going live January 1, 2019. The goal is to improve Members’ health outcomes by staffing a complex care team to provide comprehensive care management and by coordinating complex physical and behavioral health needs across multiple Providers and health care systems in Riverside and San Bernardino counties. BHICCI care teams are currently transitioning into community-based care management entities (CB-CMEs) that provide Health Homes services in preparation for Health Homes go-live. Health Homes Program The Health Homes program (HHP) is an integrated care management program for patients with complex needs that builds on IEHP’s Behavioral Health Integration Complex Care Initiative (BHICCI), as legislated by the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS). The HHP coordinates the physical, behavioral, and community-based Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS) needs of Members with severe chronic physical and/or mental health conditions. The primary goal of HHP is to improve the overall health outcomes of members through the delivery of care coordination and complex care management. Since the launch of the program in January 2019, more than 9,000 Members have seen overwhelmingly positive clinical health outcomes related to blood pressure, diabetes and depression. Click here to learn more about the Health Homes Program. EHR and Health Information Exchange IEHP has partnered with the San Bernardino County Medical Society and the Riverside County Medical Association to form the Inland Empire EHR Resource Center, to assist Providers and clinics in selecting and implementing electronic health record systems. Additionally, IEHP was part of the Inland Empire Health Information Exchange, which merged with the CalIndex Health Information Exchange to form Manifest Medex (MX). MX is a statewide health information exchange that has significant penetration and use in the Inland Empire, with all Inland Empire acute care hospitals and many medical groups and Physicians contributing patient clinical and administrative data. MX brings needed technology to access and securely share electronic patient health records for most of the 4.4 million people living in the Inland Empire. It allows Doctors, clinics, hospitals and other health care Providers to electronically review and access medical records, resulting in timely and improved quality of health care for patients in our community. DocOnline This innovative program provides another option for Members to receive medical advice after hours from a Physician. IEHP Members can speak to a board-certified Physician by phone or via video chat, quickly and easily. The Physician can access the IEHP formulary and the IEHP Pharmacy Network to e-prescribe medications for IEHP Members if needed. When fully implemented, this service will enhance Member access and convenience while reducing unnecessary emergency room and urgent care visits. Telehealth IEHP is supporting the expansion of telehealth services throughout the Inland Empire, to improve access to critically needed specialty care and to aid in rapid diagnosis and treatment. Telehealth eliminates one of the Inland Empire’s longstanding barriers to care – geographic distance to health care resources. With telehealth’s information and communication technologies, the treatment and prevention of disease or injury can occur long-distance, erasing geography as a critical factor impeding care. Telehealth can also be used to support Provider training and Member education. IEHP is currently supporting telehealth for certain services: behavioral health, retinal examinations, dermatology, and orthopedic consultations. Plans are underway to expand to additional services in alignment with Member needs. eConsult eConsult, a collaboration among IEHP, Arrowhead Regional Medical Center and Riverside University Health Care System, allows PCPs to connect directly with specialists electronically when a patient may need a specialist referral. Through a private, secure system, PCPs can receive timely clinical advice from specialists that may allow them to manage a majority of patients in the primary care setting (some patients may need a face-to-face visit with a specialist). IEHP is sponsoring the initiative for the first 24 months and will design, implement and evaluate eConsult at more than 70 clinic sites throughout Riverside and San Bernardino counties. Secure Online Member Portal and App IEHP Members can take an active role in managing their own health 24/7 via a secure online account that can be accessed through the IEHP website or mobile app. Members can view and print their IEHP Member Cards; view lab tests, Immunization Cards and authorizations; find or change Doctors; search the Provider Directory; enroll in health education classes; check eligibility; and more. The separate Baby-N-Me prenatal care app helps improve maternity health outcomes by making it easy for expectant moms to track pregnancy milestones, identify health issues, and stay healthy with reminders and helpful tools. Texting and Alerts IEHP uses two-way texting and Short Message Service (SMS) alerts to educate Members about their plan benefits and how to navigate the health care system. These alerts are targeted approaches that communicate seasonal health information about topics such as immunizations, preventive care, medication adherence, and new health plan features. Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS) IEHP’s Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS) program enables seniors and persons with disabilities to live independently in their homes as long as safely possible, and provides care in a Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) when they cannot. LTSS includes the Multipurpose Senior Services Program (MSSP) and Community-Based Adult Services (CBAS), as well as SNF services when required. IEHP also helps coordinate any In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) benefits. Since May 2018, IEHP has helped transition 750 Members out of long-term care facilities and back into the community. A 24-hour in-home emergency caregiver program and a case management program, developed in partnership with the Riverside County Department of Social Services, received the 2017 and 2018 Achievement Award from the National Association of Counties. IEHP has also partnered with the University of California, Los Angeles on a Geriatric Workforce Enhancement Program to provide patients, families and caregivers with the knowledge and skills they need to improve health outcomes and increase the quality of care for older adults.

Special Programs - Enhanced Care Management
addresses the clinical and non-clinical needs of high-need, high-cost IEHP Members through systematic coordination of services and comprehensive care management. ECM is a collaborative and interdisciplinary approach to providing intensive and comprehensive care management services to individuals. It serves to build on the Health Homes Program (HHP) and Whole Person Care (WPC) pilots and transitions those pilots to one larger program to provide a broader platform to build on positive outcomes from each program. ECM provides these vulnerable Members an additional care team to help coordinate and manage their care. The care team consists of a Nurse Care Manager, a Behavioral Health Care Manager, a Care Coordinator, and a Community Health Worker. These specially trained professionals collaborate with IEHP Members' Primary Care Physicians, Specialists, and family support systems to create a personalized plan of care. Beginning January 1, 2022, please direct eligible IEHP Members who need the ECM services to call IEHP Member Services at (800) 440-4347, Monday - Friday, 8am - 5pm.

page. What is CCS? CCS is a statewide program that enables children with qualifying conditions to receive specialized services related to that condition independent from IEHP. The CCS program provides diagnostic and treatment services, and medical case management for those who have qualifying conditions. CCS also provides occupational and physical therapy services through the Medical Therapy Program (MTP). The Medical Therapy Program (MTP) is a special program that provides physical therapy (PT), occupational therapy (OT), for children who have disabling conditions, generally due to neurological or musculoskeletal disorders Who Qualifies? The CCS program services children and young adults under the age of 21 who have eligible medical conditions. Examples of CCS-eligible conditions include, but are not limited to, chronic and acute medical conditions such as cystic fibrosis, hemophilia, cerebral palsy, heart disease, cancer, traumatic injuries, and infectious diseases producing major sequelae. For a more inclusive list of diagnoses and medical criteria of qualifying conditions please reference the below links: https://www.dhcs.ca.gov/services/ccs https://www.dhcs.ca.gov/services/ccs/Documents/CCSMedicalEligibility.pdf Provider Responsibilities Primary Care Physicians (PCPs), Specialty Providers, and IPA/Medical Groups are responsible for performing appropriate baseline health assessments and diagnostic evaluations sufficient to identify children and young adults with potential CCS-qualifying conditions and refer to CCS as needed. PCPs are responsible for all well child and pediatric preventative services as these services are not a covered benefit of CCS. PCPs are also responsible in assisting CCS members with transition from CCS to IEHP authorizations at the age of 21 when members age out of the CCS program. Benefits of CCS Enrollment CCS Clients are not restricted to in area providers but have access to any CCS paneled provider within the state of California when a need for the specialty care has been determined to be CCS eligible. Once a client is determined to be eligible for CCS, the client will continue to be medically eligible for CCS until treatment is complete or age 21 when the CCS program ends. Additional Resources To assist our valued Providers, every Member active with CCS has a distinct red “CCS” widget in the Provider Portal. Opening that widget enables you to view the diagnosis being treated and any Specialists and their treatment authorization range.

Public Safety Power Shutoff Alerts A Public Safety Power Shutoff, also called a PSPS, occurs in response to severe weather. Power is turned off to help prevent wildfire and keep communities safe. We encourage you to sign up for alerts so you know when a Public Safety Power Shutoff may occur and when your power is restored. Click here to sign up. Medicine Safety Some medicines may need to be stored in a refrigerator to keep their strength, including many liquid medicines. When the power is out for a day or more, throw away any medicines that should be refrigerated, unless the medicines label says otherwise. If a life depends on the refrigerated medicines (for example, insulin), use them only until a new supply is available. Replace all refrigerated medicines as soon as you can. Resources Refrigerated Medicine Storage (PDF) Insulin Storage and Product Switching in an Emergency (PDF) Comparison of Insulins (PDF) Durable Medical Equipment Safety Use the checklist below to prepare for a power outage. Check your backup power equipment frequently to ensure it will function during an emergency. Call your power and water companies about your needs for life-support devices (home dialysis, suction, breathing machines, etc.) in advance of a disaster. Many utility companies keep a “priority reconnection service” list and map of the locations of power-dependent customers for use in an emergency. Ask the customer service department of your utility companies if this service is available. Keep the shut-off switch for oxygen equipment near you so you can get to it quickly in case of emergency. Generator users should operate generators in open areas to ensure good air circulation. Test generators once a month, and take your generator to be serviced at least once a year, to make sure it will work when needed. Create a plan for how to recharge batteries when the power is out. Reference resources below. When power is restored, make sure the settings on your medical device have not changed.

This includes making a plan to improve safety and taking routine tests and health screenings to detect health problems and treat them early. Advanced Care Directive What’s an Advanced Care Directive and why do I need someone else to help me? Advanced Care Directive is a specific type of power of attorney or health care proxy, in which the person authorizes someone (an agent) to make decisions on their behalf when they are unable to do so. Decisions can be large and small. For example, “Who will be responsible for communicating with your family?” or “In the final stages of living, do you want to be at home?” IEHP offers free Advanced Care Directive Workshops to help you. Call IEHP Health Education Department at 1-866-224-IEHP (4347) or 1-800-718-4347 for TTY users to see if a workshop is coming up near you!
