Overview

In the United States today, over 60 million low income individuals are enrolled in Medicaid Managed Care plans and it is expected to increase drastically by 2021. CMS has instituted its Final Rule, a sweeping overhaul of Medicaid Managed Care, resulting in new regulations and mandates with the goal of improving Medicaid member access to quality healthcare, enhancing outcomes while reducing healthcare costs. State Medicaid Agencies and Medicaid Health Plans throughout the United States are struggling with how to be best prepared and succeed in this new, rapidly evolving landscape of healthcare.

We have created an exciting, high level forum featuring knowledgeable leaders and executives from the nation's leading Medicaid Health Plans and State Government Agencies who will share their perspectives, valuable insights and expertise on how to be best equipped for the rapidly evolving landscape of Medicaid Managed Care. Attendees will benefit from learning about best practices and strategies that have been deployed to address the challenges in transforming Medicaid Managed Care. Topics include improving network adequacy, enhancing member access to quality healthcare, boosting member enrollment/engagement, managing carved in services, integrating social determinants, enhancing care coordination/collaboration and reducing the overall healthcare spending.

By attending the 2019 Medicaid Managed Care Forum, you will learn what others in the Medicaid Managed Care arena are doing to succeed in transforming the nation’s healthcare and its Medicaid member population.

Improving Healthcare Quality & Reduce Spending for Medicaid Members in the New Landscape of CMS Rules & Regulations: Changing the Paradigm to Focus on High Value Care

States are constantly under pressure to improve healthcare quality while slowing the rate of growth in their Medicaid programs. States have chosen a variety of paths to try to achieve this elusive two-pronged goal. This workshop will provide real-life examples from two states with decidedly different, but ultimately successful, approaches to Medicaid: Colorado and Oregon. Senior leadership from Colorado Medicaid and Oregon Medicaid, along with their actuarial and analytics consultants, will provide detailed information on how their Medicaid programs are constantly evolving and innovating to stay ahead of the cost curve while focusing on delivering high quality care. This workshop will address the practical strategies Colorado and Oregon have used to address the following questions:

  1. How does a state define "quality" healthcare in their Medicaid program and what are the best metrics to move the quality needle?
  2. How does a state effectively differentiate between high value care and low value care using readily available data, e.g., eligibility, fee-for-service claims, and/or encounter data?
  3. Once standards for the type of care are established, how does the State set targets for clinical interventions that focus on high value care and ensure they are reasonable, attainable, and appropriate?
  4. How can the State work collaboratively with its key stakeholders to implement these innovative contractual requirements and ensure they are still in compliance with CMS' evolving rules and regulations?
  5. What is the most effective way to measure and monitor the rate of growth of my Medicaid program so that reasonable targets can be set?

At the conclusion of the workshop, attendees will understand the key strategies that two highly successful Medicaid programs have implemented to successfully addressing quality and cost simultaneously as well as how to customize and implement similar strategies in their states.
