The National Dual Eligibles Summit

Dual Eligibles Summit Publications Printing Dept.

The nine million dual eligibles who qualify for both Medicare and Medicaid benefits make up one of the country’s most vulnerable populations. Beneficiaries frequently encounter barriers to healthcare access and have great difficulty navigating the complex administrative system created by the uncoordinated and often conflicting incentives of two beneficiary programs. The Affordable Care Act contains several provisions intended to improve the quality of care delivered to dual eligibles, while gaining greater control over the increasing costs of caring for this population by offering high quality coordinated care and improved outcomes. The First National Dual Eligibles Summit, October 30 – 31, 2012 in Los Angeles, will bring together policymakers, state government officials, advocates, experts, and caregivers who have been working on the front lines, providing care and advocating for the dual eligible population. Featured speakers and expert panels will provide analysis and perspective, and will share their hands-on experience in caring for this unique population. The two-day conference will include in-depth discussions of a number of different state demonstra- tions, plan and provider alignment strategies, the implications of the upcoming elections, and the long-term impact of health reform. In addition to compelling keynote presentations, there will be two content-rich pre-conferences and fifteen concurrent sessions offering participants a chance to discuss the implementation and operational challenges involved in managing care for dual eligibles, quality measurement, innovations in home and community based services, network strategies, and risk management. Please join us in discussing this urgent initiative with thought leaders, colleagues and national policy and program experts.
