Webinar: How Community-Based Organizations Contract and Receive Reimbursement for Medicaid HCBS – A Blueprint for Success

Community-based organizations (CBOs) have a long history of supporting people with disabilities and older adults through a variety of funding structures. States are increasingly realizing the value of these organizations as providers and partners in their Medicaid-funded programs.

At the same time, many states are partnering with Medicaid managed care organizations to provide long-term services and supports (MLTSS) and considering value-based payment structures for LTSS. This creates both opportunities and challenges for CBOs who have had experience serving individuals who need assistance to be able to live independently in their own homes.

Health Management Associates will present a webinar on “How Community-Based Organizations Contract and Receive Reimbursement for Medicaid HCBS—A Blueprint for Success.”  During this webinar, a panel of experts will provide real-world strategies that CBOs can use to effectively expand access to their services, work with state Medicaid programs, contract with managed care, and ensure sufficient reimbursements.
