Maximizing Medicare: New Opportunities to Support State Policy Goals

Friday, August 23, 9 am – 10:30 am
Approximately 11 million Medicaid recipients are dually eligible for Medicare, including some of the most high-cost and high-need individuals enrolled in state Medicaid programs. While integrating and aligning across these two programs is a perennial challenge for state policymakers, recent changes in federal regulations are creating new opportunities for states. This roundtable discussion explores the role of Medicare, Dual Eligible Special Needs Plans (D-SNPs), and how states are leveraging Medicare and Medicaid policies to promote more integrated care for high-cost, high-need beneficiaries.
