Duals Demonstrations and Special Needs Populations Summit
The benefits of a holistic approach to health is widely accepted, but the advent of the Affordable Care Act introduced a financial impetus for streamlining service delivery, and improving quality of care, for the 10.2 million individuals dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid. The alignment initiative offers a host of opportunities to improve the care experience for beneficiaries while economizing budgets. But Medicaid-Medicare alignment is not without attendant risks.
How to manage those risks and still innovate care coordination is what all 13 states participating in CMS’ MMPs—as well as the other 336 D-SNPs operating across 38 states, DC, and Puerto Rico—are grappling with. Drawing upon data from the first two years of dual demonstrations, as well as evidence-based best practices from States experienced with MLTSS, IQPC’s Duals Demonstrations and Special Needs Populations Summit offers an unique look at the intersection between these related, but distinct, integration platforms.
Join us in Phoenix, AZ next April 25–26, 2016 to gather strategies on refining, and optimizing, your approach to integrated care coordination.
