Innovations in Member Engagement in Rural Areas

November 27, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST

REGISTER FOR THIS WEBINAR HERE.

In 2013, 27 percent of individuals who received coverage through both Medicare and Medicaid lived in a rural area. Dually eligible beneficiaries living in rural areas often contend with distance and transportation barriers, a shortage of primary care providers, and limited access to specialty care. As such, health plans serving dually eligible beneficiaries in rural areas may require creative strategies to overcome barriers to member engagement. This webinar will focus on how plans conduct initial outreach, build connections, and establish trust with rural dually eligible enrollees, as well as engagement strategies to assist them in managing their health. Speakers will share practical tips along with observed outcomes.
