Medicaid Managed Care Innovations to Improve Care for Vulnerable Populations


Medicaid managed care organizations (MCOs) have the potential to foster the delivery of quality care to vulnerable populations while also containing cost growth. This project will examine ways in which Medicaid managed care can improve health care delivery to low-income families and disadvantaged minority Americans. Based in part on a previously fielded national survey of Medicaid managed care activities, the research team will explore innovative contracting arrangements between state Medicaid agencies and MCOs that are intended to improve the quality and efficiency of care beneficiaries receive. The team will then prepare case studies of four service and delivery innovations. By gathering and synthesizing information about effective and promising Medicaid managed care practices, this project will inform state and federal policymakers in their efforts to promote high-quality, cost-effective care for their expanding Medicaid populations.
