Funder: Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services
Individuals dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid often have significant health and social service needs — making them among the nation’s highest-need, highest-cost populations. Integrating the financing and delivery systems for these enrollees has the potential to improve beneficiary experience of care, increase care quality, and reduce costs.
The Integrated Care Resource Center (ICRC) — a national initiative of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ Medicare-Medicaid Coordination Office and coordinated by Mathematica Policy Research and the Center for Health Care Strategies — helps states develop integrated care programs that coordinate medical, behavioral health, and long-term services and supports for individuals who are dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid. The publications available in this resource center reflect lessons gleaned from on-the-ground experiences of states developing integrated care programs.
