How Managed Long-Term Services and Supports Can Help Family Caregivers

Event Date: 
04.27.2017 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM
Time Zone: 
(GMT-05:00) Eastern Time
Short Description: 

The CMS Medicare-Medicaid Coordination Office (MMCO), in collaboration with The Lewin Group and AARP, is excited to announce an upcoming webinar.

Full Description: 

Family caregivers are an integral component of the care team making it possible for their family member to live at home rather than in an institutional setting. However, their unpaid assistance, which in 2013 amounted to around 37 billion hours, can take a toll on their physical and emotional health. In November 2016, AARP published a report detailing how managed long-term services and supports (MLTSS) can better address family caregivers’ needs. The report highlights a shift toward a person-and family-centered care approach along with new federal rules that are in place to support family caregivers in Medicaid.

This webinar will provide an overview of AARP’s report including promising practices demonstrating effective family caregiver supports for adults enrolled in Medicaid MLTSS programs and for those older adults who are Medicare-Medicaid enrollees. Presenters from AARP will describe current innovative practices to support family caregivers in Financial Alignment Initiatives, including a focus on South Carolina Healthy Connections Prime and the Dementia Cal MediConnect Project, followed by a representative from Molina Healthcare who will speak to implementing these practices within a health plan.

In summary, the webinar will present the following information:

  1. Explain how managed long-term services and supports can lead the way to advancing person- and family-centered care;
  2. Describe promising practices demonstrating effective family caregiver supports; and,
  3. Provide tools and recommendations that pave the way to better addressing family caregivers’ needs.

Featured Speakers:

  • Michelle Bentzien-Purrington, Vice President, MLTSS and Duals Strategy, Molina Healthcare, Inc.
  • Wendy Fox-Grage, Senior Strategic Policy Advisor, AARP Public Policy Institute
  • Lynn Friss Feinberg, Senior Strategic Policy Advisor, AARP Public Policy Institute
  • Susan C. Reinhard, Senior Vice President, AARP Public Policy Institute

Intended Audience:

This webinar is intended for a wide range of stakeholders—care managers, family caregivers, staff at social service agencies, Medicare–Medicaid plans, Dual Eligible Special Needs Plans (D-SNPs), managed long-term services and supports programs, and consumer organizations.
