Innovative Care Models for Dual Eligibles

There are different models of care for managing dual eligibles and it is vital to evaluate strengths and weaknesses when deciding which model to use. At the D.U.A.L.S. forum on April 4 – 5 in Baltimore, you’ll hear about the following speakers present on different care models:

• Austin Ifedirah, Vice President of Medicare at GATEWAY HEALTHPLAN will share his insight into caring for the dual eligible population through Special Needs Plans (SNPs).

• Anthony Evans, Vice President of Integrated Health at CARESOURCE, will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of using a managed care model and share some of the financial considerations you must take into account.

• Rachel Richards, Vice President of Government Relations at SENIORLINK, Katherine Anderson, National Vice President of Strategy and Development for Medicare-Medicaid Enrollees at UNITEDHEALTH COMMUNITY & STATE, and Greg Nersessian, Principal at HEALTH MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATES discuss new managed care models to manage non-medical risk since MCOs serving duals will need new capabilities to meet these members' medical and non-medical needs.

 • Meryl Friedman Price, President at HEALTH POLICY MATTERS will discuss which models of care are best for dual eligibles with serious mental illnesses.
