“Evolving Pharmaceutical Benefit Trends and Medicaid Managed Care’s Role”
October 17, 2018, 2:30 – 3:30 p.m. ET

State Medicaid programs continue to balance serving eligible beneficiaries and controlling costs. In an environment sharply focused on the cost of drugs, it is increasingly critical to understand the Medicaid pharmacy benefit and the role health plans play in managing that benefit. Key topics include:

  • Medicaid pharmacy benefit requirements stemming from Section 1927 of the Social Security Act
  • Flexibilities available to states to structure their drug coverage, particularly through managed care plans, including the most innovative state approaches
  • Tools and opportunities to control pharmaceutical spending available within Medicaid managed care
  • The future of value-based payment and new financial arrangements with Medicaid and managed care programs

“Addressing Social Determinants of Health in Medicaid Managed Care”
October 30, 2018, 2:30 – 3:30 p.m. ET

With mounting evidence demonstrating the influence of nonclinical and social factors—such as unstable housing, food insecurity and interpersonal violence—on health outcomes and healthcare costs, social determinants of health (SDOH) have edged into the mainstream. State Medicaid agencies and other stakeholders are driving the SDOH evolution from theory to practice. Recognizing that solving the healthcare problem starts with attacking its root causes, they are increasingly developing innovative strategies to address Medicaid enrollees’ SDOH-related needs and crafting sustainable funding solutions.

In our new webinar, Manatt Health will review the role that Medicaid agencies and managed care plans are playing in testing SDOH-related interventions and integrating them into their healthcare delivery systems—creating a platform for “whole person” care that seamlessly addresses individual physical, behavioral and social needs.
