3155.1 Medicare and Medicaid in States' Experiences

Monday, October 29, 2012: 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
As the nation seeks to reform its health care delivery system, experiments within individual states, properly studied, can provide new knowledge about what innovations work and what changes in policies, structures, and/or payment are needed to make them work. This session examines findings from studies of four diverse initiatives. With the introduction of publicly subsidized plans sold on the Exchanges whose subsidies are sensitive to income - churning among public programs will undoubtedly increase, especially as Medicaid eligibility also expands. Without standardizing (as much as possible), the benefits to enrollees will change each time their income changes.
Session Objectives: To define site-of-care-delivery for patients in the year following injury. To explain the Bright Futures health promotion initiative for children and issues associated with its implementation. To compare different models of Medicaid-managed care and their association with satisfaction of care. To explain how state policies and systems can be used to increase continuity of care in Medicaid/CHIP.
