MWMA Survey Follow-Up Report

The results of the MWMA survey have provided the MWMA implementation team with a lot of valuable insight into how case managers perform their jobs. We also received important feedback on areas where case managers would like to see improvement.

The implementation team is working to further define the MWMA implementation and training strategy based on insights offered through survey responses.

In addition, the implementation team has developed the MWMA Survey Follow-Up Report which highlights how the MWMA implementation will address some of the more common challenges cited by case managers. We hope the information provided in this report will offer a better understanding of MWMA and its expected benefits for Medicaid waiver providers, individuals and families.

What is the Medicaid Waiver Management Application?

The Medicaid Waiver Management Application project is a collaborative effort between the Cabinet for Health and Family Services and the Kentucky Health Benefit Exchange (KHBE) to streamline and standardize processes and tools that support the delivery of home and community-based services under the Medicaid waiver programs.

The MWMA, which will be a product of this effort, is a Web-based system to support the commonwealth's Medicaid waiver programs. The MWMA will be built on the existing KHBE platform which hosts kynect, Kentucky's healthcare connection. Once implemented, the MWMA will:

  • Standardize and automate essential waiver program processes;
  • Provide an integrated, comprehensive view of the individual's services and supports;
  • Enable a person-centered approach to service delivery; and
  • Integrate with existing commonwealth systems, providing consistency across technology standards and enabling a Cabinet-wide view of information across Medicaid waiver programs.
