More about CFAP
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) established requirements for conflict-free case management for Medicaid beneficiaries obtaining HCBS.
Often, the access, coordination and provider of services roles overlap. If one agency serves as both the point of entry and provider of services, then there is a potential for conflict. This conflict of interest may not be intended, but may be built into the system.
Conflict-free access and planning requires that assessment and coordination of services are separate from the delivery of services. This means that case management and support coordination activities are separate from the delivery of services.
The goal of CFAP is to promote choice and independence for people receiving services. This should limit bias to identify needs and develop plans to access services.
