Proposal for Medicare, Medicaid integration comments due April 19

The Department of Human Services invites public comment on a proposed demonstration to further integrate Medicare and Medicaid coverage for more than 93,000 Minnesota seniors and people with disabilities. The proposal (pdf) seeks more administrative integration, including provider payments and consumer materials, and greater accountability among providers and payers for total cost of care and health outcomes for people with both types of coverage.
