Ten Opportunities to Better Serve
The opportunities outlined in this letter, which do not require complex demonstrations or Medicare waivers, can be grouped into three broad areas:
- Integrating care through managed care arrangements.
- Using Medicare data to inform care coordination and program integrity initiatives.
- Reducing administrative burden for dual eligible beneficiaries and the providers who serve them.
The SMD letter also provides the names and contact information of CMS staff who can assist state Medicaid agencies in implementing each of the described opportunities.
