June 2014 Edition of the The State Medicaid Integration Tracker

Posted: June 4, 2014

NASUAD has published the June 2014 Edition of the The State Medicaid Integration Tracker, a report which summarizes state actions in managed care for people who receive Medicaid-funded Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS), as well state initiatives relating to services for people who are dually eligible for Medicaid and Medicare. This report is updated each month.

 

The State Medicaid Integration Tracker focuses primarily on state actions in managed care for people who receive Medicaid-funded LTSS and on state initiatives relating to services and costs of services for people who are dually eligible for Medicaid and Medicare.

 

Because so many states have informed the Federal Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation that they intend to participate in the State Demonstrations to Integrate Care for Dual Eligible Individuals, the Tracker pays close attention to the status of state participation in this demonstration.

The Tracker also includes updates on states participating in the Balancing Incentive Program (BIP), states pursuing the Communities First Choice Option under §1915(k), and newly added Health Home programs.

 

Thank you for your continued interest in this Tracker. To download a PDF of the entire tracker, click here.  We will continue to email you when updates are available.
