Working closely with the DHS Worker, CMHA-CEI has hired two Reimbursement Eligibility Assistants that begin the process by assisting the consumer with completing the application, gathering data and present a fully completed application to the DHS worker to assist with the application review process. Their role is also to identify those consumers who might be eligible for Medicaid who have not enrolled and work with the Case Managers/Supports Coordinator and consumer to begin the application process. They can be found at the various locations assisting based on appointments and at hospitals with our consumers throughout the tri-county area. A full tracking system was developed to assist in tracking missing data and review points.
The other role of the Reimbursement Eligibility Assistant is to set review points to ensure that our consumers get the necessary paperwork back to DHS worker when a review is necessary for renewal and retaining Medicaid eligibility.
Currently the Jolly Road staff is located in our Crisis Intervention Department, Suite 111. You are eligible to make an appointment to see them from Monday-Friday, 8:00AM-5:00PM.
