Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) - 04/23/2019

~~“Public Law 113-128, known as the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), was signed by President Obama on July 22, 2014 and is the first legislative reform to the public workforce system in 15 years. WIOA is designed to improve the coordination of employment and training services across federal agencies, strengthen collaboration with state and local partners, and provide Americans with increased access to training, education and other support to succeed in the job market and in their careers. The enactment of WIOA provides opportunity for reforms to ensure the American Job Center (AJC) system is job-driven – responding to the needs of business owners and preparing job seekers for occupations that are available now and in the future.”

Across the United States, approximately 500 local organizations offer an array of essential services and supports that may not be supported by mainstream mental health programs. In total, PATH staff outreached to 139,515 individuals in 2017 and enrolled 73,246 PATH-eligible clients with the following services:

    Outreach    Screening and diagnostic treatment    Habilitation and rehabilitation    Community mental health    Substance use disorders treatment    Referrals for primary health care, job training, educational services, and housing    Housing services as specified in Section 522(b)(10) of the Public Health Service Act”

Medicaid Overview - 01/01/2019

~~“The Medicaid program in Guam differs from Medicaid programs operating in each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Some of the key differences are:

 Guam became a territory in 1950 and its Medicaid program was established in 1975. It is a 100% fee-for-service delivery system with one hospital currently servicing the territory. There are no deductibles or co-payments under the Guam Medicaid program. Guam’s Medicaid program does not administer a Medicare Part D Plan; the Medicaid program receives an additional grant through the Enhanced Allotment Plan (EAP) which must be utilized solely for the distribution of Part D medications to dual-eligibles.    Through Section 1108 of the Social Security Act (SSA), each territory is provided base funding to serve their Medicaid populations. For the period of July 1, 2011 through September 30, 2019, Section 2005 of the Affordable Care Act provided an additional $268,343,113 in Medicaid funding to Guam.    Unlike the 50 states and the District of Columbia, where the federal government will match all Medicaid expenditures at the appropriate federal matching assistance percentage (FMAP) rate for that state, in Guam, the FMAP is applied until the Medicaid ceiling funds and the Affordable Care Act available funds are exhausted. The statutory FMAP local matching rate increased from 50%/ 50% to 55% federal /45% local, effective July 1, 2011. From January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2015 there is a temporary 2.2% FMAP increase for all Medicaid enrollees, bringing Guam’s FMAP to 57.2%.

Medicaid-Marketplace Overview

Guam was awarded $24,436,001 million for its Medicaid program in lieu of establishing a health marketplace. Guam must exhaust its Affordable Care Act (Section 2005) allotment prior to using these funds.”

Medicaid Overview - 01/01/2019

~~“The Medicaid program in Guam differs from Medicaid programs operating in each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Some of the key differences are:

 Guam became a territory in 1950 and its Medicaid program was established in 1975. It is a 100% fee-for-service delivery system with one hospital currently servicing the territory. There are no deductibles or co-payments under the Guam Medicaid program. Guam’s Medicaid program does not administer a Medicare Part D Plan; the Medicaid program receives an additional grant through the Enhanced Allotment Plan (EAP) which must be utilized solely for the distribution of Part D medications to dual-eligibles.    Through Section 1108 of the Social Security Act (SSA), each territory is provided base funding to serve their Medicaid populations. For the period of July 1, 2011 through September 30, 2019, Section 2005 of the Affordable Care Act provided an additional $268,343,113 in Medicaid funding to Guam.    Unlike the 50 states and the District of Columbia, where the federal government will match all Medicaid expenditures at the appropriate federal matching assistance percentage (FMAP) rate for that state, in Guam, the FMAP is applied until the Medicaid ceiling funds and the Affordable Care Act available funds are exhausted. The statutory FMAP local matching rate increased from 50%/ 50% to 55% federal /45% local, effective July 1, 2011. From January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2015 there is a temporary 2.2% FMAP increase for all Medicaid enrollees, bringing Guam’s FMAP to 57.2%.

Medicaid-Marketplace Overview

Guam was awarded $24,436,001 million for its Medicaid program in lieu of establishing a health marketplace. Guam must exhaust its Affordable Care Act (Section 2005) allotment prior to using these funds.”

Medicaid Overview - 01/01/2019

~~“The Medicaid program in Guam differs from Medicaid programs operating in each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Some of the key differences are:

 Guam became a territory in 1950 and its Medicaid program was established in 1975. It is a 100% fee-for-service delivery system with one hospital currently servicing the territory. There are no deductibles or co-payments under the Guam Medicaid program. Guam’s Medicaid program does not administer a Medicare Part D Plan; the Medicaid program receives an additional grant through the Enhanced Allotment Plan (EAP) which must be utilized solely for the distribution of Part D medications to dual-eligibles.    Through Section 1108 of the Social Security Act (SSA), each territory is provided base funding to serve their Medicaid populations. For the period of July 1, 2011 through September 30, 2019, Section 2005 of the Affordable Care Act provided an additional $268,343,113 in Medicaid funding to Guam.    Unlike the 50 states and the District of Columbia, where the federal government will match all Medicaid expenditures at the appropriate federal matching assistance percentage (FMAP) rate for that state, in Guam, the FMAP is applied until the Medicaid ceiling funds and the Affordable Care Act available funds are exhausted. The statutory FMAP local matching rate increased from 50%/ 50% to 55% federal /45% local, effective July 1, 2011. From January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2015 there is a temporary 2.2% FMAP increase for all Medicaid enrollees, bringing Guam’s FMAP to 57.2%.

Medicaid-Marketplace Overview

Guam was awarded $24,436,001 million for its Medicaid program in lieu of establishing a health marketplace. Guam must exhaust its Affordable Care Act (Section 2005) allotment prior to using these funds.”

Medicaid Overview - 01/01/2019

~~“The Medicaid program in Guam differs from Medicaid programs operating in each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Some of the key differences are:

 Guam became a territory in 1950 and its Medicaid program was established in 1975. It is a 100% fee-for-service delivery system with one hospital currently servicing the territory. There are no deductibles or co-payments under the Guam Medicaid program. Guam’s Medicaid program does not administer a Medicare Part D Plan; the Medicaid program receives an additional grant through the Enhanced Allotment Plan (EAP) which must be utilized solely for the distribution of Part D medications to dual-eligibles.    Through Section 1108 of the Social Security Act (SSA), each territory is provided base funding to serve their Medicaid populations. For the period of July 1, 2011 through September 30, 2019, Section 2005 of the Affordable Care Act provided an additional $268,343,113 in Medicaid funding to Guam.    Unlike the 50 states and the District of Columbia, where the federal government will match all Medicaid expenditures at the appropriate federal matching assistance percentage (FMAP) rate for that state, in Guam, the FMAP is applied until the Medicaid ceiling funds and the Affordable Care Act available funds are exhausted. The statutory FMAP local matching rate increased from 50%/ 50% to 55% federal /45% local, effective July 1, 2011. From January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2015 there is a temporary 2.2% FMAP increase for all Medicaid enrollees, bringing Guam’s FMAP to 57.2%.
