MedPAC Releases Report on Care Coordination

June 19, 2012

On June 15, the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC) released its semiannual report to Congress. The report includes an overview of two programs designed to integrate care for dual eligibles (those eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid): the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly and dual-eligible special needs plans.

MedPAC makes several recommendations for ways to modify the Medicare program to improve PACE and remove barriers to greater enrollment. The report includes an examination of the structure of duals' care coordination models, quality outcomes and Medicare payments.
