Looking Ahead to Change: Little by Little
I don't make New Year's Resolutions. I don't think I ever really did, but the last decade or two would have been enough to stifle that impulse. I've just been too aware that I don't have that much control over what happens in my life.

    Approximately 9 million low-income seniors and younger persons with disabilities are enrolled in both Medicare and Medicaid (often referred to as duals). Many states are pursuing efforts to better coordinate care and potentially lower costs for this population.

    Earlier this year, 15 states were awarded design contracts of up to $1 million each to develop service delivery and payment models that integrate care. More broadly, 37 states and the District of Columbia have submitted letters of intent to pursue opportunities for integration announced by CMS in July.

    This webinar will provide a basic overview of the duals population, activity within states, opportunities and concerns, and stakeholder involvement.
