10Briefing  Medicaid Managed Long-Term Services and Supports: Are More Caution and Oversight Needed? , 8/3/2012
Medicaid can be as much as 25 percent or more of a state’s expenditures -- a share that appears to be rising, not shrinking. In 2011 Medicaid accounted for 24 percent of total state spending, including federal grants. To address their budgetary challenges, an increasing number of states are turning to Medicaid managed care. As of 2009, 47 percent of all Medicaid beneficiaries were enrolled in a managed care plan. Looking to save money in categories where the most is being spent, more states are starting to enroll older beneficiaries and those with disabilities in such plans, not just for acute care services, but for long-term services and supports (LTSS). Who is being served by Medicaid managed care? How is enrollment determined? Does it cover a full range of long-term services and supports including home and community based services? Are these programs providing high quality, efficient care? Is there sufficient state oversight of these programs? To address these questions and more, the Alliance for Health Reform and AARP are sponsoring an August 3 luncheon briefing. 
10Briefing  Long-term Services and Supports: A Rebalancing Act, 10/3/2011
The ongoing debate over the federal budget and deficit reduction presents a balancing act for policy makers, as many compelling interests compete for scarce dollars. But for 10 million older adults and people with disabilities who need long-term services and supports, there is a “rebalancing act” in progress. The aim is to serve more people at home and in the community, and fewer people in institutions. Are there sufficient home- and community-based programs in all states to address the aging population? The growing number of adults with disabilities? How can incentives in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act be used to develop new approaches in home- and community-based services? How effective are existing federal initiatives to promote care in home- and community-based settings, such as the “Money Follows the Person” program? To address these and related questions, the Alliance for Health Reform and The Commonwealth Fund sponsored an October 3 luncheon briefing.  
10Briefing  More Than Meets the Eye: Long-Term Care Provisions in the New Reform Law, 10/1/2010
During the recent health reform debates, relatively little attention was given to the many provisions of the new law that deal directly with long-term care. This briefing explored those provisions, including the CLASS Act and Medicaid waivers for home- and community-based services. Cosponsored by the Kaiser Family Foundation. 
10Briefing  Long-Term Care: Exploring the Possibilities, 3/9/2009
Almost every day, we learn of a new hearing or briefing about ways to improve our health care system. The White House, Congress, advocates and stakeholders are fully engaged. The elephant in the room during those discussions is long-term care. Despite being so large, it suffers from the possibility of being ignored. This March 9 forum, supported by the SCAN Foundation, brought together opinion leaders and stakeholders to explore options for the future of long-term care in the reform debate. Participants considered key policy questions on how to move from testing models at the edges to implementing feasible options through health reform. 
10Briefing  THE LONG-TERM CARE PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM: What Role Will It Play in Broader Long-Term Care Policy?, 11/9/2006
The Long-Term Care (LTC) Partnership Program allows purchasers of private long-term care insurance to qualify eventually for Medicaid coverage of long-term care services without having to meet the same asset requirements as other Medicaid applicants. Partnership programs began in 1987 in four states – New York, California, Connecticut, and Indiana.

On March 9, 2009, the Alliance for Health Reform held a policy roundtable entitled "Long Term Care: Exploring the Possibilities," co-sponsored by The SCAN Foundation. The white paper produced for the roundtable was authored by Joshua Weiner of RTI International, with review and comments by Sheila Burke of Harvard University. The paper, "Long Term Care: Options in an Era of Health Care Reform" frames the main issues of long-term care financing and delivery and lays out a comprehensive set of reform options. (Adobe Acrobat PDF)
10Issue BriefChanging the Nursing Home Culture, 3/1/2008
About a third of those turning 65 in 2010 will need nursing home care during their lifetimes. Yet so many people dread the thought of spending their last days or years in a nursing home. This is because many people aren’t aware of the creative alternatives being developed for those needing such care – facilities such as “Green Houses” that are resident-centered, less institutional and more home-like. This issue brief addresses the challenges being faced by those trying to change the nursing home culture, and some of their successes. Supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. (Adobe Acrobat PDF)
10Issue BriefLong-Term Care Partnerships: An Update, 3/15/2007
Long-term care partnerships offer states a way to encourage the purchase of private long-term care insurance and, it is hoped, relieve some of the financial pressure on Medicaid. This issue brief reports on the rationale behind the partnership programs, results so far and issues going forward. Funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. (Adobe Acrobat PDF)
10Issue BriefCash & Counseling Moves Into the Mainstream, 4/1/2006
"Cash and Counseling" is a way of allowing individuals receiving personal assistance services through Medicaid to have more control over the services they get and who provides them. This issue brief describes how the program works and cites results of a three-state demonstration project. (Adobe Acrobat PDF)
9Briefing  Caring for People Covered by Both Medicare and Medicaid: A Primer on Dually Eligible Beneficiaries, 6/3/2011
This was an introductory session designed to inform the staff of new members of Congress both in Washington and in district or state offices about the people who receive benefits from both the Medicaid and Medicare programs (often called “dual eligibles”). The briefing was designed to be helpful to staff members unfamiliar with this important issue. A distinguished panel addressed such basic questions as: Who is dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid? What are the characteristics and needs of this population? How do Medicaid and Medicare coordinate payment and care for this population? What federal and state barriers complicate these efforts? What is being done to address these challenges? This briefing, cosponsored by the Kaiser Family Foundation's Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured (KCMU), answered these and other questions.  
9Briefing  Treatment of Severe Chronic Illness: What Explains Cost and Quality Variations? Should We Be Concerned?, 9/8/2006
Some Medicare beneficiaries receive significantly more hospital-based services during the last two years of life than do other beneficiaries. The number of physician visits for Medicare beneficiaries can also vary greatly. What accounts for this variation? Do patients receiving more services tend to get better care, or not? Should policymakers take steps to more closely examine the relationship between spending and the volume of services provided at different facilities?

9Other PublicationA Call for Action: The Pepper Commission Final Report, 10/31/2007
Seventeen years ago, a bipartisan congressional commission agreed unanimously that “all Americans should have access to affordable health and long-term care coverage in an efficient and effective system.” The Pepper Commission, chaired by Sen. Claude Pepper and then by Sen. Jay Rockefeller, is all but forgotten. But the insights and recommendations contained in the commission’s final report make for fascinating reading today and offer guidance as the nation ramps up for another try at major health reform.

8Briefing  Changing the Culture and Improving Quality: Innovations in Long-Term Care, 10/19/2007
Culture change in the long-term care world involves many players – residents, administrators, workers, lawmakers, policy analysts – sharing a common vision. One such vision attracting attention has been developed by a group of citizens, providers and advocates known as Pioneers who are exploring alternatives to traditional nursing facilities. Their goal: facilities that are resident-centered, less institutional and more home-like. This involves trying to piece together financing from Medicaid, Medicare and private funding sources. Will we be ready to meet the demands of aging boomers for more consumer-directed care? Are legislative changes needed to promote it? This briefing, sponsored by the Alliance for Health Reform and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, addressed these and related questions.  
8Briefing  QUALITY CARE AND COMFORT AT THE END OF LIFE: Changes Needed?, 6/8/2007
The American health system is focused on curing, and spends billions of dollars on treatment at the end of life. But now more than 40 million adult Americans suffer with life-altering, chronic health conditions. They and their families are often more concerned with pain management, comfort care, and coordinating care as they transition from setting to setting. As people live longer with grave chronic illness are they getting quality care? Where in the delivery of care spectrum should palliative care come into play? Sponsored by the Alliance and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. 
8Briefing  CARING FOR THE ELDERLY: Is There Any Answer to Rising Health Costs?, 9/26/2005
The costs of caring for the elderly have been growing steadily higher. Spending on Medicare benefits accounted for 17 percent of the nation’s total health care spending in 2004. With baby boomers retiring, and Medicare benefits changing, this percentage is expected to grow in the future. How concerned should we really be with rising health care costs, especially costs connected with the care of older people? Will new technologies create efficiencies that will dramatically reduce costs, or will technologies raise demand for care and thus drive cost increases? 
8Briefing  Cash and Counseling: Part of the Long-Term Care Answer?, 7/29/2005
“Cash and Counseling” is a way of allowing individuals receiving personal assistance services through Medicaid to have more control over the services they get and who provides them. The program provides an individualized allowance that beneficiaries can use to hire a personal care assistant of their choice – often a family caregiver – or purchase items that help them live independently. The Alliance for Health Reform, along with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, held a briefing to discuss Cash and Counseling and results from the program's demonstration.

Uwe Reinhardt Questions Bundled Payment Savings Prospects


Video (2:58)

A new Alliance for Health Reform video features Princeton’s Uwe Reinhardt questioning whether bundling payments for medical services might actually lead to higher – not lower – costs.

"The ACO's, the accountable care organizations, could create local monopolies that could dictate to you what that bundled price would be, and some of us fear that bundled prices might be even more than what the fee-for-service for that bundle would be today. … You really should align all the payers and say, 'Let us jointly negotiate with the ACOs what those bundles should be so that they cannot divide and rule and sort of make us on the buy side weak.'"

Jonathan Blum on CMS Efforts to Keep Medicare Spending Growth Down


Video (2:54)

Jonathan Blum, acting principal deputy administrator and director of the Center for Medicare at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), addresses the slower growth of Medicare spending over the last few years, and what his agency is doing to try and continue the trend. “There are promising signs that this strategy to change the payment system, to change the payment models, to focus on waste and abuse, is paying off," he said. "We are taking a whole new approach to addressing fraud in the program. Much more data resources, much more on the ground reaction. We have seen dramatic spending declines in areas of spending, such as home health and durable medical supplies that historically fueled lots of the fraud.”  FULL TRANSCRIPT

Douglas Holtz-Eakin: Health Care Spending Lull Only Temporary


Video (3:11)

A new Alliance for Health Reform video features Douglas Holtz-Eakin of the American Action Forum, and a former director of the Congressional Budget Office, arguing that recent slower spending growth in health care won’t continue.

"We also saw a slowdown in the mid-90s, and we all declared victory and it came right back. I think next year we’ll see a noticeable uptick. There will be lots of new people entering the insurance markets because of the exchanges and the subsidies that come along with them, and those subsidies are very generous. … These are an invitation for people to get coverage and to buy more health care. I think that’ll place a lot of pressure on spending."
