Promoting Integrated Care for Dual Eligibles, Phase 1


To control rising health care costs, pressure is building to accelerate the enrollment of people dually eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid into managed care plans. Because of these beneficiaries’ complex health care needs, it is especially important that they are served by plans with the capacity to deliver high-quality, coordinated care. This project will seek ways to expand the capacity and scalability of existing well-performing integrated managed care plans that serve dual eligibles. Central to this work is the creation of a consortium of plans working jointly to align plan and provider interests, create mechanisms for producing excellent quality while managing costs, and formulate strategies for expanding enrollment and increasing retention. If phase 1 proceeds well, support for a second phase will be requested to synthesize and disseminate consortium members’ strategies and best practices.
