This brief identifies opportunities for states and their contracting plans that serve Medicare-Medicaid enrollees to align Medicare and Medicaid coverage of care management. Such alignment could facilitate a more seamless and coordinated approach to providing the medical, behavioral, and social supports covered under both programs.
