States Using Managed Care to Curb Medicaid Costs

States Using Managed Care to Help Curb Long-Term Care Costs
– CQ Healthbeat

CQ Healthbeat interviewed Manatt’s Cindy Mann, a partner with Manatt Health, for an article on the growing number of states that are using managed care to curb long-term care costs for Medicaid recipients.

“A greater share of the elderly population is increasingly over the age of 85,” Mann said. “The population and demand are growing.

“Managed care can help states better integrate medical and behavioral healthcare with long-term supports, which have traditionally been separate from each other.”
