By August 28, 2017WEBINAR

When: Wednesday, September 20th at 11:00 a.m. PT/2:00 p.m. ET.

Dual eligible individuals, those with both Medicare and Medicaid coverage, represent the most medically needy and costly population for both Medicare and Medicaid. In an effort improve health outcomes and reduce healthcare spending, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has been testing  financial alignment demonstrations in thirteen states to better coordinate and integrate care for dual eligibles.

What has been learned from these demonstrations so far? What are the take-aways for states that did not participate? This webinar provides an update on these dual eligible demonstrations and review early evaluations of the programs. The webinar also covers other recent efforts by CMS to address issues unique to dual eligible including issues around access to durable medical equipment.

Following the training, the audience will have a better understanding of the two models being tested in the demonstration, the fully capitated model and the managed fee-for-service model. They will also know about challenges and innovations during the almost four years since the demonstrations were launched and what further evaluation is being planned.

This is an advanced webinar. Legal service attorneys and aging and disability network professionals who work with dual eligibles are encouraged to attend.

Presenters:
Georgia Burke, Directing Attorney, Justice in Aging
Amber Christ, Senior Staff Attorney, Justice in Aging

The webinar took place on Wednesday, September 20th at 11:00 a.m. PT/2:00 p.m. ET.
