Washington, DC (PRWEB) February 26, 2015
Participants in the April 16 virtual conference, “Dual-Eligibles Initiatives: What’s Working? What’s Not? What’s New?,” will learn how to fine-tune strategies for Medicare-Medicaid dual-eligibles programs to achieve strong outcomes for duals-plan members and plans alike.
What has been happening in the implementation phase of programs for Medicare-Medicaid dual eligibles? What changes already have been made? Which ones need to be implemented in the future? Participants in Atlantic Information Services, Inc.’s (AIS) upcoming April 16 virtual conference, “Dual-Eligibles Initiatives: What’s Working? What’s Not? What’s New?,” will learn about early outcomes and cost results from the field, possible coming changes from CMS and states, and practical steps organizations can employ to take advantage of these new opportunities.
As early data and comments come in from both Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services-backed and state duals programs, it’s clear that sponsors have had to deal with numerous challenges, some anticipated and others unexpected, in caring for portions of the more than 9 million duals. During “Dual-Eligibles Initiatives: What’s Working? What’s Not? What’s New?,” participants will hear from some of the nation’s experts in dual-eligibles programs, including duals and behavioral-health plan executives, state government officials and consultants, about how to:
- Overcome slow starts and high opt-out rates without having to change the overall structure of already-begun duals initiatives.
- Find effective ways to contact passively enrolled duals and get them into regular primary care.
- Cope with significantly greater than expected behavioral-health needs of duals…without breaking the bank.
- Combat provider resistance to duals initiatives in proactive ways that will help achieve clinical and financial objectives.
Additionally, each of the virtual conference’s four sessions 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.
