More than 12 million people in the U.S. are eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid, a population that often has significant health and social service needs. These individuals frequently experience fragmented, uncoordinated care because the two programs were not designed to work together. Integrating Medicare and Medicaid for people who are dually eligible has the potential to improve the experience of care, increase the quality of care, and reduce costs.
This resource center — a product of the Center for Health Care Strategies’ (CHCS) Medicare Academy: Capacity-Building for States Advancing Medicare-Medicaid Integration — curates resources developed through select CHCS-led projects to help states build their capacity to integrate Medicare and Medicaid. While not exhaustive, this resource center offers a foundation to help states further Medicare-Medicaid integration efforts.
