Does the dual eligibles population make financial sense for your plan?

The dual eligibles population comprises 24% of Medicare enrollees, but accounts for almost 35% percent of Medicare expenditures. With healthcare expenditures increasing at an alarming pace across the board, managing the care (and finances) for serving duals is now more important than ever.

At the Annual Medicare Congress, taking place on February 11 – 13 in Phoenix, you’ll hear best practices to determine if providing coverage for dual eligibles makes sense for your health plan. Panelists will share their insight on evaluating the financials of providing care to duals, predicting utilization patterns and how to overcome marketing barriers.
