What is an Integrated Care Plan?
A. An Integrated Care Plan (ICP) is the plan used to identify what supports and services you will get and how you will get them. Your care coordinator will help set this up for you. Together, you and your care team will make a care plan. You will receive an initial assessment at time of enrollment to assess your current health, welfare and functional needs. This assessment will be used to determine if referrals for long term care or behavioral health are needed and will be used to develop an individualized care plan. You will receive an assessment every twelve (12) months and at specific intervals based on your individual needs. If you have more complex needs, you will receive additional contacts to update your individualized care plan on a regular basis. You will also receive a reassessment when there is a change in your health status or needs; examples include: hospital admissions, a loss or change in caregiver or upon your request. Your care plan will be updated based on the reassessment. Assessments may be conducted in person if you have immediate or multiple needs. The ICP is available for download on the MyMolina portal.
