The article discusses the challenges being faced by state Medicaid programs in integrating care for dual eligibles. According to Sara Rosenbaum of the Department of Health Policy at the School of Public Health, one of the biggest challenges is the development of provider capacity to act as medical homes and accountable care organizations. Another challenge is said to be developing integrated financing arrangements with Medicare. Brian Osberg, Minnesota state Medicaid director, also cites their biggest challenge.
