States play a vital role in improving care and outcomes for the dual-eligible population, but support is often needed. States have the ability to offer models that integrate Medicare and Medicaid, but many barriers currently exist for states seeking to adopt these models. Advancing Medicare & Medicaid Integration is an initiative supported by Arnold Ventures and coordinated by the Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS) that is targeted to states ready to make meaningful transformations in care delivery for individuals eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid. This includes states that operate demonstrations under the federal Financial Alignment Initiative and are looking to transition to more permanent integration strategies and states without demonstrations that are looking to build on or adopt integrated options.

Following are profiles of state projects already underway supported by Arnold Ventures to advance Medicare-Medicaid integration. To learn more about funding opportunities under Advancing Medicare & Medicaid Integration, states are encouraged to read about the types of projects that can be supported through this initiative. States may also contact CHCS by email to discuss their goals for integration.
