Join LTQA and ATI Advisory on February 2 from 2-3 pm EST for the second part in our webinar series on advancing new, non-medical supplemental benefits in Medicare Advantage featuring panelists Lindsey Copeland (Medicare Rights Center), Andy Friedell (HealthAlign), April Golenor (UPMC Health Plan), and Lucy Theilheimer (Meals on Wheels America).
The introduction of Special Supplemental Benefits for the Chronically Ill (SSBCI) and the expanded definition of “primarily health-related” supplemental benefits (PHRB) has given Medicare Advantage (MA) plans increased flexibility in 2020 and 2021 to offer non-medical supplemental benefits, and to target them to members with chronic conditions. What opportunities and roadblocks exist for MA plans and providers as offerings of non-medical supplemental benefits increase in light of these changes? What are MA plan considerations for the 2022 bid process? What short- and long-term policy opportunities exist to enhance the availability of non-medical supplemental benefits to Medicare beneficiaries?
This webinar will feature a panel of stakeholders, including representatives from health plans, providers, and advocacy groups, to discuss opportunities to advance non-medical supplemental benefits in 2022 and beyond. We’ll also be sharing new analysis of just released CMS data on SSBCI for 2021!
