“A lot of us at the company have worked a good part of our careers trying to crack that nut about putting Medicaid and Medicare together,” he said. “[We’re working on] making that integration work for the member and the provider as opposed to just having different contracts.”

Some of these efforts include ensuring dual-eligibles have a single case manager for both plans, and allowing providers to easily switch over payments between plans in a crossover payment system.
