Webinar Replay: Unpacking the MassHealth One Care Procurement Databook: Key Considerations for Strengthening the Program, Advancing Health Equity

This webinar was held on July 16, 2019. 

The Massachusetts One Care program, which went out to bid this year, is an 1115A Duals Demonstration (both a Financial Alignment Demonstration and a state demonstration) for dually eligible Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries age 21-64 at the time of enrollment and living with disabilities. To assist potential bidders, the state released a Databook containing historical demographic, cost and utilization information for individuals who are eligible for One Care but not currently enrolled.

During this webinar, HMA experts broke down the One Care Databook and provided an eye-opening review of the data that can help regulators, health plans, providers and community-based organizations strengthen the program and advance health equity for the eligible population. Speakers also used sophisticated geo-mapping software to illustrate geographic variation in the cost and utilization of both Medicare and Medicaid services.

Learning Objectives

  • Gain insights into the eligible population and their use of Medicare and Medicaid services.
  • Consider regional variation in the cost and use of Medicare and Medicaid services.
  • Learn more about Medicare Part D service use among the eligible population.
  • Take stock of the opportunities to advance health equity gleaned from the data.
