“Medicare-Medicaid dual eligible care models provide highly coordinated healthcare services to help beneficiaries navigate their healthcare options,” by Thomas Beaton, HealthPayerIntelligence
“An AHIP report outlines three types of care models that it says offer coordinated care and address the unique needs of beneficiaries who are eligible for Medicare and Medicaid. Dual-Eligible Special Needs Plans, Medicare Advantage plans that normally offer both Medicare and Medicaid benefits, are poised to offer greater integration; Medicare-Medicaid Plans, which cover individualized care for each enrollee, are the newest and most integrated option; and Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly are designed to help elderly dual-eligibles remain in the community, rather than residential facilities such as nursing homes.”
LTC Comment (from Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform):
Compare these complicated public benefit plans underfunded by government with the independence and power people have to get what they want when they want it if they can pay for it.
