WEBINAIRE:Addressing Social Determinants of Health through Medicaid Accountable Care Organizations: Early State Efforts
Accountable care organizations (ACOs) have become increasingly prevalent in state Medicaid programs as a way to improve health care quality and control costs. To date, 11 states have launched Medicaid ACO programs, and at least 11 more are pursuing their own models. Some states are beginning to use their ACO programs to address social determinants of health (SDOH) — such as living environment and access to healthy food — that ultimately affect health outcomes. Expanding the services covered by Medicaid ACOs may be critical to their success, given that many of the highest‐need, highest‐cost Medicaid patients have complex behavioral and social needs that are often not addressed in the current fragmented health care system.
This webinar, made by possible by The Commonwealth Fund, will explore early efforts to address SDOH through Medicaid ACO programs. This includes SDOH approaches that states are considering, including: (1) partnership requirements; (2) social needs screening, referral, and service delivery; (3) financial incentives; and (4) quality metrics. It will feature innovations from two state Medicaid ACO programs: Minnesota’s Integrated Health Partnerships and Rhode Island’s Accountable Entities.
State officials, policymakers, and other interested stakeholders can join this 90-minute webinar to gain a better understanding of how ACO programs may serve as a vehicle to help states better address the social determinants among Medicaid beneficiaries.
