Webinar 1/29: CBO Partnership Opportunities with Medicare Advantage Plans

January 16, 2019


Tuesday, January 29, 2019, 1:00 PM ET

Register for the event.

The webinar presented by the Aging and Disability Business Institute covers how community-based organizations (CBOs) have opportunities to partner with Medicare Advantage (MA) plans. New policy changes expand the flexibility of MA plans to target a broad range of supplementary benefits to beneficiaries. As a result of these changes, CBOs have greater opportunities to contract with MA plans to provide services and supports that address the social and behavioral determinants of health.

This webinar will provide an overview of these policy changes, examine the types of supplemental services that plans advanced in their 2019 bids and describe what to expect for 2020. Presenters will also discuss strategies for approaching plans and identifying services to market. The audience will hear firsthand about CBO experiences and challenges in Virginia and Pennsylvania, including the pursuit of multi-prong strategies that encompass accountable care organizations and health systems.

Participants will:

  • Describe the policy changes to the MA program;
  • Describe how these policy changes create opportunities for partnership between CBOs and MA plans; and
  • List strategies for approaching and developing relationships with key individuals at MA plans.

This webinar is presented as part of the Aging and Disability Business Institute Series, a collaboration of n4a and ASA.
