Addressing Substance Abuse Disorder Through Transformation of the Behavioral Health System

10:00 a.m.

Nationwide, millions of individuals and families are impacted by substance use disorder (SUD). SUD impacts all walks of life, including individuals enrolled in Medicaid. Nearly 12 percent of adults in Medicaid and 6 percent of adolescents live with SUD. According to CMS, alcohol and substance use diagnoses are two of the top ten reasons for Medicaid hospital readmissions. From patient identification and engagement, to ensuring access and providing integrated care coordination, health plans have been critical players in the concerted effort to address this growing issue.

In this session, Meg Murray will discuss with John Lovelace and Virginia Premier Health Plan CEO Linda Hines about specific actions plans are taking as highlighted in a newly released ACAP report.

Repeal, Replace, Reboot: Whitlock and Capretta

1:45 p.m.

The American Health Care Act (AHCA) passed the House of Representatives. But health care reform conversations are far from over. The Senate’s more deliberative approach to the AHCA heralds an opportunity for plans and others to offer constructive ideas to improve the health care delivery system. Rodney Whitlock of ML Strategies and the American Enterprise Institute’s Jim Capretta will review what the next steps are for the bill, the implications of per capita allotments on Medicaid and the plans that serve Medicaid enrollees, how the Administration is using regulatory and executive action to implement health care reform, and how plans can best position themselves in future health care reform discussions.

Children with Special Needs and Medicaid Managed Care: How Safety Net Health Plans Innovate to Care for Kids

3:00 p.m.

ACAP-member plans and other Medicaid MCOs have played a critical role in the development of care coordination programs for children with special health care needs and their families. Amid rigorous discussion in Washington regarding how these children and their families can best negotiate a complex health care environment, ACAP worked with researchers at NORC to produce a report called Innovative Approaches in Care Coordination and Care Delivery for Children with Special Health Care Needs among Safety Net Health Plans. During this session, the paper’s lead author and ACAP-member plans will highlight a range of innovative models of coverage and care coordination used for children with special health care needs, as well as efforts to improve outcomes, access to health care services, and other needed supports.

Moderated by Cheryl Austein Casnoff, Senior Fellow, NORC

Should I Stay or Should I Go? Marketplace Plans in 2018 and Beyond

9:30 a.m.

The Marketplaces have been fraught with change and instability since their inception, but particularly over the past year, with numerous issuers dropping out altogether and others threatening to do so. Yet other issuers—including ACAP plans—have opted to enter the Marketplaces, and some have been quite successful. In this session, we will hear from plans in the Marketplaces and what the impact of the current political climate and instability means for their role moving forward.

Health Savings Accounts for Low-Income Populations

11:00 a.m.

Since the November election, all eyes have been on consumer-focused coverage as a reform that could save federal dollars and increase patients’ involvement in their own care decisions.

Indiana, home to HIP 2.0, which employs health savings accounts (HSAs) for the first time for very low-income Medicaid enrollees, serves as a test site for this experiment. Indiana HIP Director Natalie Angel will describe the promises and challenges of HIP 2.0, paying special attention to the impact it has on enrollee behavior. Justin Giovannelli of Georgetown University’s Health Policy Institute, will add his perspective on the utility of HSAs to lower premiums and increase consumer involvement in the individual health insurance Marketplaces as well.

Moderated by Jim Parker, CEO, MDwise

Ensuring Value in Medicaid Drug Purchasing

12:00 p.m.

Prescription drug spending continues to be a key driver of the increase in national Medicaid spending. To date, ensuring a value proposition in drug purchasing has been a lofty but elusive goal. In this session, we will first hear from Susan Stuard, Project Director of the State Medicaid Alternative Reimbursement and Purchasing Test for High-cost Drugs (SMART-D). The goal of the Smart-D program is to strengthen the ability of state Medicaid programs to utilize alternative purchasing models (APMs) for high-cost drugs that address cost concerns while protecting patient access to safe, effective drugs. Dr. Andrea Gelzer (invited) will then present on AmeriHealth Caritas’ efforts to implement a value-purchasing program that specifically addresses the role of pharmaceuticals.

Adjournment
