Webinar Replay: Comparing Medicaid program delivery models on quality outcomes

This webinar was held on February 15, 2022.

In 2020, state and federal government spending on Medicaid was $646 billion, with just over half going to Medicaid managed care programs and the rest to fee-for-service (FFS), primary care case management (PCCM), and other models. Despite the large investments, little evidence exists on differences in quality between the various models. Using the 2019 CMS Adult and Child Core Set Quality Measures, HMA normalized performance data across states to compare outcomes between managed care, FFS and PCCM. During this webinar, HMA consultants discussed the findings, which were published in an HMA white paper in November 2021.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Understand how the different Medicaid delivery models performed on quality measures from the 2019 Adult and Child Core Set.
  • Learn more about the Adult and Child Quality Measure Core Set and why the 2019 dataset provides one of the first opportunities to make valid comparisons between the Medicaid delivery models.
  • Find out how this research could be expanded upon in the future to assess the key factors that drive higher quality and better performance in population health for low-income individuals.
  • Explore the broader implications of this research for policymakers and state Medicaid officials.
