This performance measure was chosen by DVHA because it is a primary indicator of the number of Vermonters seeking access to Long Term Care (LTC) supports and services as well as an indicator of the current workload for the LTC Unit.
Vermont LTC Medicaid applications are processed simultaneously by DVHA’s financial eligibility specialists and DAIL’s clinical coordinators. DAIL communicates to DVHA when they complete the clinical eligibility determination and after they find placement with a provider. DVHA is responsible for determining financial eligibility and issuing the Notice of Decision which advises the applicant of approval or denial of the application. DVHA tracks pending applications according to the status of the financial eligibility determination, clinical eligibility determination and placement.
This performance measure provides important information about the status and progression of LTC Medicaid applications during the month.
