Testimony: Promoting Integrated and Coordinated Care for Medicare Beneficiaries

Gretchen Jacobson, Associate Director of the Foundation’s Program on Medicare Policy, testified on June 7, 2017 before the U.S. House Committee on Ways and Means, Subcommittee on Health as part of the Committee’s hearing on Promoting Integrated and Coordinated Care for Medicare Beneficiaries. Her testimony focused on the challenges and opportunities presented by three approaches for integrating and coordinating care for high-cost, high-need Medicare beneficiaries, many of whom are dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid. These approaches included Medicare Advantage Special Needs Plans (SNPs), the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE), and value-based insurance design (VBID) for beneficiaries who choose to enroll in Medicare Advantage plans.
