Announcements

9/30/2021 - Attention TCM, BHH and HCT PROVIDERS: Referral Management Process Updates

Effective October 1, 2021, KEPRO will generate a provider specific HCT referral report monthly via Excel to all Targeted Case Management (TCM) and Behavioral Health Home (BHH) Program Directors.  This report will list all referrals for HCT from that provider with specific demographic information to verify accuracy.  The agency will be responsible for reviewing the report with staff and make any needed updates and changes. Referral sources are currently expected to make changes in Atrezzo as demographic changes occur with families. This new monthly review will ensure necessary changes are being made on a timely basis. Providers will send the updated report to KEPRO’s Provider Relations Team, who will make changes in Atrezzo. Referrals made by other entities will continue to receive calls directly from KEPRO.  This process will eventually replace the outreach calls made to families by Kepro.
