Ideas on Duals Integration Shared with Senate
A group of US Senators who sit on the Senate Finance Committee issued a Request for Information in Dec. 2022 seeking input on how to reform health care to achieve integrated care for dual eligibles. LeadingAge submitted comments on January 13 sharing its vision of integrated care from its 2017 white paper including highlighting member integration models with better outcomes for senators to consider.
LeadingAge met with Senate staff recently to discuss these ideas further and learn how we can assist the Senate in their efforts to improve care for the dual eligible population. This group of senators – Sens. Bill Cassidy, M.D., Thomas Carper, Tim Scott, Mark Warner, John Cornyn and Robert Menendez – continue to meet weekly on this topic and synthesize the responses they received from the RFI. They’re working toward identifying some concrete solutions for discussion in the coming months.
