​RE: ​​Webinar on the Application for Benefits Eligibility (ABE) Partner Portal – Requirements for the Data Sharing Agreement and Security and Privacy Controls

The Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services (HFS) will offer a series of webinars regarding prerequisites necessary for a long term care (LTC) provider to use the Application for Benefits Eligibility (ABE) Partner Portal. 

The new functionality of the ABE Partner Portal will allow LTC providers to upload supporting documentation for a resident’s case or application, specifically:

·         Redetermination (Rede)

·         Income

·         Resources

·         Third Party Liability (TPL)

·         Other

The uploaded documentation will link directly to the resident’s ABE case record.

This webinar series explains provider requirements that must be completed before using the ABE Partner Portal. Webinar participants will review the Data Sharing Agreement (DSA) and Security & Privacy Controls Questionnaire (SPCQ).

Registration is not required. However, in order to accommodate a large number of long term care providers, the same information will be presented in each of the following sessions:

Tuesday, October 2, 2018 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. (access code 806 112 361)

Wednesday, October 3, 2018 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. (access code 806 609 414)

Wednesday, October 10, 2018 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. (access code 806 524 270)

Thursday, October 11, 2018 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. (access code 804 446 242)

Future webinars will cover setting up User Accounts, Logging In, and Uploading Documents in the ABE Partner Portal.

Questions will be answered during the webinar as time permits. HFS will continue to offer ongoing LTC provider support by hosting webinars and posting other helpful information on the HFS website under the Long Term Care Services and Supports Long Term Care Changes link.
