    A free roundtable session at NASI’s 25th Annual Research Conference, Friday, February 1, 2013.

    Online advance registration has now closed. Please register on-site at the National Press Club.

    This event is a free roundtable session on Friday, February 1, 2013, Day 2 of NASI’s 25th annual research conference, Medicare and Social Security in a Time of Budget Austerity.

    Event Summary:  Individuals that are dually eligible – enrolled in both Medicare and Medicaid – are among the poorest and sickest in our health care system, yet they often receive the most fragmented care. Beginning this year, the Centers for Medicare & Medicare Services (CMS) will implement state demonstrations that test integrated delivery and payment models for duals. As we know from decades of experience, integrating care between two programs that are so vastly different will present challenges as well as opportunities, and this roundtable will explore both.

    • Kirsten Sloan, National Partnership for Women and Families (moderator)
    • Matt Salo, National Association of Medicaid Directors
    • Susan Fleischman, M.D., Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, Inc.
    • Brian Biles, M.D., The George Washington University

    This roundtable is underwritten by the Kaiser Permanente Institute for Health Policy.
