CSH Offers Medicaid Institute

Corporation for Supportive Housing

The Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH) is sponsoring the Connecticut launch of the Medicaid Institute for Supportive Housing Agencies (MISHA), a six month training opportunity for supportive housing providers interested in billing services to Medicaid. Representatives from approximately 8-10 selected supportive housing agencies in Connecticut will meet seven times for a full day of training beginning from March through September 2014.

CSH is working in conjunction with the Technical Assistance Collaborative (TAC) to deliver MISHA, in which participating agencies will learn about:

  • the range of Medicaid services and programs providers of supportive housing are or may be eligible for beginning in 2014 and beyond;
  • service model and primary care/prevention approaches;
  • the processes for becoming eligible for Medicaid programs;
  • how service agencies can assist participants to become eligible and maintain Medicaid eligibility;
  • assessing needs and impact of Medicaid coverage for populations not previously covered;
  • conducting self-assessments to determine if they should consider becoming a Medicaid provider or a referring/supporting organization;
  • successful approaches to being full service partners with Medicaid providers for the benefit of supportive housing participants; and
  • developing business plans to either become Medicaid billable organizations or developing strategic partnerships with Medicaid providers in order to increase capacity of supportive housing services.

The application due date to be considered for the training institute is February 13, 2014.
