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.
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.
Noting that long-term care increasingly is being provided through Medicaid managed care plans, the government has released guidance on how to monitor the quality of care in these systems.
Managed care organizations are set to play a bigger role in how long-term care is provided for people currently eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid, and providers should focus on having the right capabilities in place for them, according to a new report. Released by merchant bank TripleTree, it also identifies technology vendors enabling these capabilities in the long-term and post-acute care settings.
Long-term care providers should be cautious adopters as Medicaid managed care programs grow in scope and number, according to a new report and toolkit from the American Health Care Association. Advisory documents for providers are attached as Appendix B and Appendix D to the toolkit.
Stakeholders in Medicaid managed care programs feel prepared for the enrollment surge that will follow the full implementation of the Affordable Care Act, but there are ongoing concerns related to long-term care and provider capacity, according to a new report.
