Jamie has been asked to testify on behalf of the health plans at the Public Health and House Human Services joint hearing on Hurricane Harvey scheduled for November 1st.  Representative Raymond's office asked her to speak about the health plan efforts during the storm and lessons learned.  


I am developing a draft slide deck for her presentation and need your help to ensure we have all the information she will need during the hearing.  Here is the outline, please send me information to include in the draft power point by COB Friday.  I will finalize this weekend and send out early next week for your review and requests for specific information missing that is still needed.  


1) Specifics on health plans efforts to prepare for the storm. 


2) Specific information on efforts during the storm.  When did you lift prior authorization and out of network requirements, did your health plan ease provider requirement earlier than HHSC and TDI?  We need to make sure Jamie has specific information in case she is questioned on whether or not the health plans followed TDI and HHSC requirements or in case any of the members have provider complaints. 


3) Specific information on your efforts following the storm and lessons learned.  Attached is a draft of lessons learned.  Please let us know if you have anything to add or if you have specifics you can provide for any of the items listed in the document.
