Exploring Options for Integration: State Considerations to Better Coordinate Medicare and Medicaid

Event Description: 
People who are dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid must navigate two uncoordinated systems of care that have different incentives, benefits, provider networks, and enrollment processes. ADvancing States, in partnership with the Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS), is developing resources for states new to integration to inform the adoption of strategies that better align Medicare and Medicaid for dually eligible individuals. This webinar will explore current evidence about the value of integrated care for state Medicaid agencies and identify key questions for states to consider as they explore both larger- and smaller-scale efforts to better coordinate care delivery for dually eligible populations. The webinar will also highlight the perspective of the District of Columbia, which is planning to launch new program elements to better integrate care.
Presenters: Michelle Herman Soper, Vice President of Integrated Care, CHCS; Nancy Archibald, Senior Program Officer, CHCS; and Katherine Rogers, Program Manager, LTC Operations, District of Columbia Department of Health Care Finance
