Dual eligibles, the approximately nine million individuals who qualify for both Medicare and Medicaid, account for a disproportionate share of health care costs for both programs. California pioneered a Dual Eligibles Demonstration that enrolled more than 120,000 eligible beneficiaries. In this webinar, Toby Douglas, former director of California’s Department of Health Care Services and their lead on the State’s Dual Eligibles program, and Barbara Selter, a MAXIMUS long-term care expert who has worked with many states on their demonstrations, will share insights into how these demonstrations were enacted, their successes and challenges, and how their lessons learned can be applied to other state demonstrations.

The role of the Medicaid Pharmacy Benefits Management (PBM) program is quickly changing. From rapid growth in enrollment from Medicaid expansion to the overall change in the nature and delivery of medications, states are looking for innovative ways to adapt their PBM programs to this new environment. In this webinar, our experts will share their insights on how Medicaid PBM programs can meet these new demands, including how to cope with the accelerating introduction of hyper-expensive and complex specialty therapies, how to rapidly adjust to rules changes, and how to effectively address the complexities of managing multiple PBM programs.
