LTQA Symposium: Integrated Care for Individuals with Dual Eligibility, Part I
According to the CMS Medicare-Medicaid Coordination Office (MMCO), less than 10 percent of full-benefit dually eligible individuals were enrolled in an integrated care program as of June 2017. The remaining “full Duals” are enrolled in separate Medicare and Medicaid coverage and must navigate a complex and confusing world of overlapping coverage and disconnected services. This fragmented care for dual eligible individuals delivered by unaligned fee-for-service (FFS) systems results in greater administrative burdens, higher costs, greater beneficiary confusion, and significant gaps in quality of care.
On December 9, LTQA hosted a Symposium on Advancing Integrated Care for Individuals with Dual Eligibility. This Symposium brought together a broad array of stakeholders from LTQA’s member community and key thought leaders to discuss how we can achieve better care integration for dual eligible individuals.
