The nation’s 9 million Medicare-Medicaid dual eligibles – low-income frail seniors and persons of all ages with severe disabilities – now use about $350 billion in healthcare annually.  States and CMS are rolling out models to integrate Medicare and Medicaid financing and care delivery for dual eligibles.  These reforms are of keen interest to virtually all stakeholders – Medicaid health plans, Medicare Advantage plans, hospitals and health systems, physicians, long-term care and behavioral health provider, drug and device manufacturers, policymakers, and patient advocates.

On Wednesday, May 23, 2012, Sellers Dorsey is hosting a free public webinar on Medicare-Medicaid dual eligibles.  The webinar begins at 1 pm EDT.

In this webinar, you’ll learn the basics of:

  • The Medicare-Medicaid dual eligible population, their characteristics and spending.
  • The role of Medicare and Medicaid in serving dual eligibles, including differences in covered services, financing, and care delivery.
  • Integrated health plans at risk for all Medicare and Medicaid services.
  • Managed fee-for-service model, where Medicare shares savings with the state.

This complimentary webinar is designed for anyone needing to understand the basics of the dual eligible market and the new frameworks for integrating Medicare and Medicaid financing and care delivery.

Please join Maureen Long, RN, MBA and Kip Piper, MA, FACHE for this webinar on the critically important, ever increasing, and rapidly changing dual eligible market.
