An Inside Look at Successful Programs. In this report—an update to AHIP’s 2005 Innovations in Medicaid Managed Care book—we provide details about 17 health plan initiatives dedicated to improving the health and well-being of Medicaid beneficiaries. The report is divided into three chapters:
- Working with Community Partners;
- Addressing Obesity; and
- Caring for People with Complex Needs.
Wherever possible, we have included comments from people who have participated in these programs. This online version of the publication includes videos featuring Medicaid beneficiaries and staff who are involved with the initiatives, as well as interviews with some of the people who run them.
As with our previous Innovations reports, we have provided contact information for people in the companies who are available to answer questions. This in-depth description of best practices is intended to foster discussion about lessons learned and replication of successful approaches.
