In the wake of the shift to accountable and value-based care, and in light of the growing number of older adults and individuals with disabilities, many states are looking to Managed Care Organizations (MCOs) to provide these populations with coordinated healthcare and long-term services and supports (LTSS). Opportunities now exist in this new environment for community-based organizations (CBOs) experienced in providing these supportive services to partner with MCOs looking to tap into the expertise and deep community knowledge of local CBO providers.
This September 21st, 2016 webinar, created for the Aging and Disability Business Institute and hosted by the American Society on Aging (ASA), highlights one such successful CBO–MCO partnership in San Diego, Calif., between Care1st Health Plan, an affiliate of Blue Shield of California, and Access to Independence (a2i), the Center for Independent Living serving the disabled population in the San Diego area. Watch to learn how these organizations were able to work together to achieve common goals and serve an especially vulnerable population.
