Leveraging Dual Eligible Special Needs Plan (D-SNP) Models of Care to Enhance Enrollee Care Coordination

Apr 20, 2023 1:00 - 2:30 p.m. ET

This webinar discussed strategies states can use to improve care coordination for D-SNP enrollees. It provides an overview of federal D-SNP care coordination and Model of Care (MOC) requirements, describes state options for incorporating care coordination requirements into state Medicaid agency contracts (SMACs) with D-SNPs, and/or requiring D-SNPs to incorporate state-specific information into MOCs, and discusses key considerations for states when implementing state-specific care coordination requirements.

Learning Objectives: By the end of this presentation, attendees should be able to:

  • Explain federal D-SNP care coordination and MOC requirements;
  • Describe options for incorporating state-specific care coordination requirements into D-SNP MOCs and SMACs; and
  • Understand key considerations when requiring D-SNPs to implement state-specific care coordination requirements.
