In 2011 the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services launched a “Medicare-Medicaid Financial Alignment Initiative” that seeks “…to provide Medicare-Medicaid enrollees with a better care experience and to better align the financial incentives of the Medicare and Medicaid programs.”
- “Early Findings on Care Coordination in Capitated Medicare-Medicaid Plans under the Financial Alignment Initiative”
- “Beneficiary Experience: Early Findings from Focus Groups with Enrollees Participating in the Financial Alignment Initiative”
- “Issue Brief: Special Populations Enrolled in Demonstrations under the Financial Alignment Initiative”
Pennsylvania’s private safety-net hospitals serve especially large numbers of dually eligible Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries, so such programs are always of special interest to them.
