Optimizing Medicare-Medicaid Integration for Dually Eligible Beneficiaries

This event has passed.

Approximately 13 million individuals, known as dually eligible beneficiaries, are enrolled in both Medicare and Medicaid. This diverse population, primarily comprised of older adults and individuals with disabilities, confronts complex health care needs within separate and disjointed insurance programs.

With high rates of chronic conditions and limited access to integrated care, dually eligible beneficiaries account for a significant portion of federal health care spending, prompting federal policymakers to consider reforms to better integrate Medicare and Medicaid and meet the needs of these individuals.

Join the Bipartisan Policy Center and explore the current system challenges for beneficiaries, integration barriers, and valuable lessons to shape the way forward.
