|Dual Eligible Strategies for Managed Medicaid|
by Truven Health Analytics (formerly Thomson Reuters)
While a small handful of states have used managed care purchasing strategies for long-term services and supports for a number of years, the shift to managed LTSS has grown rapidly, and is expected to grow even more rapidly in 2012. Since LTSS represent a large percentage of total Medicaid spending, this shift represents a major new opportunity for Medicaid Managed Care plans to grow their businesses by effectively addressing the unique needs of these recipients. This webinar will provide an overview of the projected growth in managed LTSS, and highlight selected strategies for how plans can successfully compete in this marketplace.
