Contracting Between Community-Based Organizations and Health Care: New Insights from the 2020 RFI

Join the Aging and Disability Business Institute and Scripps Gerontology Center in this webinar recording for the release of new data on contracting between aging and disability community-based organizations (CBOs) and health care entities. Previous Business Institute Request for Information (RFI) surveys found that aging and disability CBOs across the country are contracting with health care payers and providers to address social and behavioral determinants of health. This webinar recording presents the results of the third RFI Survey, revealing how the contracting landscape has changed over the past three years. In addition to reviewing contracting trends in health care partners, services delivered, and payment structure, presenters will discuss CBO challenges and experiences with contracting.
