Under a current Commonwealth Fund grant, the Center for Health Care Strategies is leading a learning collaborative to help seven states design and implement accountable care organizations (ACOs) for Medicaid beneficiaries, offering technical assistance and peer-to-peer learning opportunities. In the second phase of the collaborative, the project team will help these states: 1) expand ACO services to include behavioral health, long-term care and support, public health, and community-based social services; 2) diversify provider participation in ACOs to include safety-net hospitals and clinics; and 3) broaden the patient population served to include people dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid. Lessons will be disseminated to stakeholders in all states seeking guidance in bringing accountable care to vulnerable populations.
