Provider agencies including affordable and supportive housing providers are considering or in process of billing for their supportive services via Minnesota’s new Housing Stabilization Services  benefit.  Many of these community stakeholders however are unfamiliar with the Medicaid system and not sure how to understand what this new benefit means for their agency. This free, two part online, Medicaid 101 training will be Minnesota specific and help you and your agency understand the big picture and some important details about this state and federal program.  The training will cover how the program’s administrative structure, regulations and delivery system models can influence your agency’s decisions and process.  The two part training will be recorded and you or your team can review at any time.  If you have additional questions, please contact our HSS TA team at HSS-TATEAM@mesh-mn.org

MN Housing Stabilization Services Medicaid Academy

What is a Medicaid Academy?  Supportive Housing is now recognized as a part of the healthcare landscape by federal and state authorities. The state of Minnesota has created the Housing Stabilization Services (HSS) benefit to assist low income Minnesotans to attain and maintain stable housing.  For providers of Housing Support, beginning in July of 2021, their services allocation will decrease 50% because the state has an expectation that providers will transition to the Housing Stabilization Services Benefit. For supportive housing providers, HSS will offer a sustainable funding stream for their activities. In the future, these services will bring increased opportunities for services funding, service expansion and capacity building. This entry into the health sector also brings new requirements around eligibility and referral processes, agency billing, documentation, quality monitoring, compliance, credentialing, and organizational policies and procedures that meet healthcare quality standards of care.

The CSH Medicaid Academy is designed to help human services and supportive housing providers, community based organizations, community health centers, and community mental health clinics learn the requirements for providing Medicaid-billable HSS and develop organization-specific plans for becoming Medicaid billers. The MN HSS Medicaid Academy will consist of four virtual meetings and four web-based educational clinics followed by individual technical assistance. The state aims to train and support provider agencies through the Medicaid Academy clinic and webinars. Select agencies that wish to pursue Medicaid billing following the Academy may receive additional individualized technical assistance, to implement their work plans.
