The Aging and Disability Business Institute at the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (n4a) and the National Council on Aging (NCOA) are excited to announce a call for applications for community-based organizations (CBOs) and networks to participate in a new learning collaborative that will provide them with the knowledge and skills needed to successfully pursue partnerships and contracts with Medicare Advantage (MA) plans for home and community-based services and supports.
The Medicare Advantage Learning Collaborative (MALC) will provide up to 10 CBOs or CBO networks with targeted technical assistance, a peer learning network and a platform to share their learnings. The key outcomes of participation in the MALC will be a customizable value proposition to present to a Medicare Advantage plan when entering into partnership negotiations, and the development of tools that can assist the larger field of CBOs with contracting with MA plans. Read the MALC charter for a detailed description of participant benefits and expectations.
Applications must be submitted by 5:00 p.m. ET on Friday, March 22, 2019.
