Transforming Care for Duals

More than nine million Americans are dually eligible for Medicaid and Medicare services. Their health care costs are nearly five times those of other adults covered by Medicare. CHCS is working with state, plan, and federal partners to design programs that take advantage of health reform options to integrate the delivery and financing of care for dually eligible adults.
