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.

Top 5 Reasons to Attend

1. A comprehensive examination of the clinical, operational, and policy considerations that affect the implementation of Medicare-Medicaid integration, including status updates on individual state Demos as well as how to leverage D-SNP contracting as an effective tool for integration, incrementally, over time and how they can complement existing MLTSS programs

2. Unparalleled access to leaders from health plans with nationwide experience in MMPs and D-SNPs—hear from Anthem, Health Net, WellCare, UnitedHealthcare, and Centene—and their perspectives on innovating within financial and administrative alignment initiatives

3. Two deep dive workshops: one on risk-assessment and stratification; another on leveraging data analytics to determine the economic impacts of intervention

4. Interactive ‘fish bowl’ discussions on key attributes of high-performing, coordinated care models—the composition of the multidisciplinary teams, opportunities for improving the coordination capacity of case managers, as well as mitigating the challenges of disjointed clinical data and utilization stats

5. Cross-cultural representation: we recognize crucial State-to-State variances in opportunities and resources—our program is equally relevant to states participating financial or administrative alignments as those that offer D-SNPs and MLTSS
