To improve quality of care and control costs for people dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid, the Medicare–Medicaid Coordination Office provides opportunities for states to test new ways of delivering and financing care. In the project’s first phase, staff at the Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS) helped 12 states design their plans for integrating the care provided to dual eligibles. In phase 2, the states will receive assistance with implementation of their new systems. The support provided by CHCS will enable state officials to share experiences and solutions to common problems, participate in meetings of the state teams, and overcome operational challenges. All technical assistance resources will be publicly available on CHCS’s website. Cofunding has been requested from the SCAN Foundation.
