Monitoring and Improving the Medicare-Medicaid Financial Alignment Initiative

Health & Medicine’s Center for Long-Term Care Reform has been working with Community Catalyst to monitor and improve the Medicare-Medicaid Financial Alignment Initiative. Illinois’ Medicare-Medicaid Alignment Initiative is part of this program, established by the ACA and overseen by the federal Medicare-Medicaid Coordination Office (MMCO). Community Catalyst has convened meetings with state advocates and the MMCO, and based on those conversations they produced a letter to MMCO describing the systemic issues confronting states and offering recommendations to improve the program. Health & Medicine contributed to the letter and remains actively involved in Community Catalyst’s efforts to protect consumers and improve the performance of the Initiative.
