How Are States and MCOs Redefining Care Management?

Learn the answer at a new Manatt webinar. Click here to watch the webinar on demand.

States are becoming increasingly demanding in their expectations of Managed Care Organizations (MCOs) when it comes to care management. Formerly a domain solely left to MCOs, many states are pushing health plans to move beyond a cubicle-and-telephonic approach, requiring new care management models that have the potential to change the way care is delivered. What does this mean for MCOs, providers and patients? How have these new requirements been reflected in state contracts with MCOs? What opportunities and challenges does this create for both small practices and provider-led organizations, such as Accountable Care Organizations and Clinically Integrated Networks?

Find out in a new Manatt webinar, “Redefining Care Management in Medicaid Managed Care.” The first program in our new series on Medicaid managed care trends, the session will share new perspectives and developments reshaping the market. Key topics include:

  • An overview of evolving care management standards for MCOs across states
  • Shifting state, plan and provider expectations around accountability, particularly for high-risk populations
  • A discussion of how providers can position themselves to take on new care management opportunities—what’s in it for them, and what the risks are
  • Observations for the future, including the blurring of roles, states’ evolving view of where care management functions should be performed, and opportunities arising for all entities to rethink their roles and develop new models
