BLOOMBERG BNA WEBINAR EVENT: Medicaid Managed Care: Industry Trends and the Inclusion and Exclusion of Benefits and Services

1:00 PM - 2:30 PM ET
BLOOMBERG BNA EVENT: Due to budget constraints and a movement toward emphasizing better care coordination, states are increasingly interested in beginning new Medicaid managed care programs and/or expanding programs already in place. The majority of Medicaid enrollees now receive most of their Medicaid benefits and services through managed care plans. Medicaid health plans serve a large portion of these beneficiaries and help provide cost predictability and savings to states, while helping keep the Medicaid population healthy by ensuring access to needed services. Certain benefits and services, like dental, behavioral health and pharmacy, in various states are not included in states’ contracts with health plans, or are “carved out.”
