Across the country, CMS is providing funding and technical support for select states to develop person-centered approaches to care coordination of dual eligibles, connecting primary, acute, behavioral health and long-term supports and services for beneficiaries of both Medicare and Medicaid.

The goal is to create care delivery and payment coordination models for this vulnerable population that can be piloted and replicated in other states.

Meanwhile, SCAN Health Plan has a history of successful care management of dual eligibles, who constitute about 9 million individuals in the United States.
