This report estimates that public financial and personal clinical outcomes can be improved by moving dual eligibles to capitated managed care.

The document lays out the reasoning and data behind the estimate, recommends policy changes needed to make the transition, identifies potential barriers to implementation and offers examples from KY and MN.
