This is the second of three projects Altarum completed in support of the Texas Health and Human Services Commission in court-ordered studies resulting from the Frew v. Hawkins legal case.

The CPW study looked at Class Members who had health conditions/risks or high-risk pregnancies and had a need for case management services to prevent illness(es) or medical condition(s) to maintain function or slow further deterioration, and for those who wanted case management services.

The project required evaluation of whether there were barriers and, if so, to identify the barriers that:

  • prevented Class Members who needed CPW case management from receiving these services;
  • prevented Class Members from receiving enough CPW case management to fully meet their needs;
  • prevented enrollment of CPW Class Members;
  • prevented continued participation of CPW Class Members.

This project also identified methods to address inappropriate use and potential duplication of case management services without depriving Class Members of the full extent of case management that Class Members needed.
