Aging Services Meets with CMS Office of Integration

Jack Christy and I had the chance to meet with Melanie Bella, Director of the CMS Office of Integration, when she was in California this week. CMS has funded California to plan the Dually Eligible Managed Care Pilot, in which persons eligible for both Medicare and Medi-Cal, will be enrolled in managed care plans. CMS intends managed care organizations to integrate all services needed for this population, including long term nursing home care. Providers serving dual eligibles in the pilot would be interfacing directly with health plans rather than dealing with Medicare or Medicaid as they do now.
