New Opportunities for Community-based Organizations: Supplemental Benefit Flexibilities and Medicare Advantage

The CHRONIC Care Act, implemented through the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018, has provided Medicare Advantage (MA) plans several flexibilities related to offering a more expansive set of supplemental benefits know as Special Supplemental Benefits for the Chronically Ill (SSBCI). During this webinar, participants will learn about these new benefits and hear from policy experts on how CBOs can leverage their expertise and existing infrastructure to help MA plans to provide them. Specifically, the Long-term Quality Alliance (LTQA) and Anne Tumlinson Innovations (ATI) will:

•     Provide participants with an overview of the SSBCI and how they differ from traditional supplemental benefits;

•     Present guiding principles developed to inform how stakeholders should think about these new flexibilities;

•     Review the latest data on benefit design in 2020; and,

•     Discuss how CBOs can approach partnering with MA plans to think through and implement the SSBCI.

This webinar includes complimentary ASWB CE credits.
