January 2009
State Health Watch;Jan2009, Vol. 16 Issue 1, p11
The article discusses a report written by The Lewin Group which shows that states can save funds by placing dual-eligible population in an integrated setting. The dual-eligibles, composed of about 8 million Americans, are simultaneously covered by Medicare and Medicaid. The author says that dual-eligibles have multiple chronic conditions that can be best helped through a coordinated approach to their health and psycho-social needs. Some of the key findings of the report such as potential savings and eligibility issues are cited.
