Washington, DC (PRWEB) July 10, 2014
Atlantic Information Services, Inc. (AIS) is pleased to announce its upcoming virtual conference, “Dual-Eligibles Programs: Initial Results, Successes and Remaining Challenges.” During this Sept. 17 program, 11 of the nation’s top duals experts from the private and public sectors — speakers on the front lines of existing and developing duals programs — will offer the details of early results and lessons learned from CMS-backed and state duals demos.
The largely untapped Medicare-Medicaid dual eligible market consists of about 9 million people who are in desperate need of truly integrated care and account for hundreds of billions of dollars in annual health care spending. Duals comprise 16% of Medicare enrollees but account for 27% of Medicare costs, and 15% of Medicaid enrollees but 40% of Medicaid spending. With a substantial number of initiatives now generating preliminary results, plans and states can determine what is and is not working and how to fix it.
Split into four sessions, this information-packed virtual conference will provide valuable practical intelligence and strategic insights on:
- Succeeding in voluntary and passive enrollment in the duals programs, including a case study on what has (and hasn’t) worked in getting duals into the programs that are right for them — and keeping them there.
- Getting Medicare, Medicaid and community resources to truly coordinate care for duals and assure that beneficiaries are accessing the right providers, including for behavioral health.
- Controlling medical-services utilization so that cost-savings objectives can be achieved.
- Containing plans’ administrative and other costs so that relatively low payment rates and quality withholds don’t make continued participation infeasible.
Additionally, each session will conclude with generous time allocated to answering individual questions.
AIS’s virtual conference allows participants to attend a live conference without having to travel to a meeting site. Plus, the registration fee includes a free On-Demand recording of each session, so any agenda items can be reviewed at a later time.
