Fostering Innovation Through Medicaid Managed Care

The CMS Innovation Center is building its agenda for innovation through health plans and seeking innovative ideas in the areas of pharmacy and medication therapy management, value-based insurance design, remote access technologies, hospice care, long-term services and supports, behavioral health and provider incentive arrangements, among others.

Long-term services and supports is an area that even the most exemplary special needs plans are beginning to explore and represents one of the highest areas of Medicaid spending. Best practices in care management also should be figured out. What other areas may warrant a spot on CMS’s innovation agenda?
