Description

This session will address key developments occurring at the national level as policymakers in Congress and the executive branch work to develop and refine models of value-based care delivery for rapidly-growing numbers of Medicare beneficiaries with complex chronic conditions. Montgomery will present the conceptual design, and the evidence that supports it, for a model of integrative care that spans medical care and long-term services and supports (LTSS) for a vulnerable population of frail older adults. This model, MediCaring Communities, is well-positioned to be piloted by willing communities across the country. Montgomery also will explore the existing Medicare financing platforms that can be adapted and the frameworks for estimating costs and savings. The role of community advocates and activists in influencing and shaping policy discussions and developments at various levels of government will also be discussed, highlighting the role of family caregivers.
