about

Post-acute care (PAC) can account for approximately 40% of a Medicare Advantage plan’s cost for a 90 day episode of care. However, an integrated PAC solution has the potential to reduce total per episode costs by as much as 25%. Today, a number of systemic issues impede health plan efforts to reduce post-acute care costs, improve quality and simplify the administration of these services. But that is about to change with the introduction of new Health Plan and PAC partnership models built on value based payments approaches.

This webinar will address the challenges Medicare and Medicaid Health Plans face in managing PAC delivery and costs, the value-improvement opportunity presented by an integrated PAC partnership model, and the critical features of a Health Plan/PAC partnership solution.
