Kaiser Releases Video Tutorial on Dual Eligibles

May 25, 2012

Kaiser has released a video tutorial in which MaryBeth Musumeci, senior health policy analyst for the Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured, focuses on the 9 million low-income seniors and people with disabilities who are “dual eligibles,” receiving coverage through both Medicare and Medicaid.

The tutorial provides a closer look at the characteristics of dual eligibles, the types of services and coverage they receive from each program and how program spending for this population is allocated. Musumeci also discusses challenges with coordinating care across the two very different programs and reviews the Affordable Care Act provisions that address these issues.
