Medicaid managed care systems have the potential to improve care outcomes, and providers' bottom lines, so operators should embrace them, said LeadingAge President and CEO Larry Minnix.
Better Medicaid managed care oversight needed to protect providers serving high-risk populations: OIGNovember 14, 2013
States are not doing a good job of monitoring how Medicaid managed care enterprises handle providers serving high-risk populations, according to a new government report. Five of six states evaluated in a recent study were not monitoring MCEs' compliance with a federal nondiscrimination provision, the Department of Health and Human Services Office of the Inspector General found.
Providers and long-term care advocates need to embrace Medicaid managed care systems, which have the potential to drive improved health outcomes and bottom lines while helping providers serve those most in need, according to LeadingAge President and CEO Larry Minnix.
