Addressing Social Determinants of Health in Medicaid Managed Care

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.
