Circling the Wagons: Medicaid, Exchanges, and Insurance Working Together – Coverage Track

Tuesday, October 24th

How to provide the best health coverage possible at a state and federal level is an on-going discussion among many players who do not always follow the same path, but what could happen if these players worked together? This session explores strategies to integrate Medicaid and Exchange eligibility, employ private market solutions to integrate multiple sources of coverage, and share data across agencies to strengthen coordination efforts. Officials discuss what’s working, what states may want to change, and next steps.
