Massachusetts Duals Demonstration Update

This week, our In Focus section reviews a presentation from MassHealth, the Massachusetts’ Medicaid program, which provides an update, and solicits input, on One Care, the state’s dual eligible financial alignment demonstration, which launched in October 2013. The update includes the status of enrollment by rating category, the announcement of a new outreach campaign to encourage enrollment, preliminary results from an enrollee satisfaction survey, a breakdown of spending by category of service, and changes to the demonstration savings percentages and risk corridors. Below, we highlight key takeaways from the presentation.
