Medicaid and COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic has triggered an unprecedented health and economic crisis in the United States.
Medicaid was already a lifeline for over 71 million Americans, and as more people face unemployment or changing economic circumstances, more individuals will become eligible for Medicaid. Estimates suggest that Medicaid enrollment could increase by as much as 10.6 to 23 million people over the coming months.1
Future of Medicaid managed care
Medicaid is at its best in partnership with managed care organizations (MCOs). MCOs ease the burden on states, combining the innovation and speed of private industry with the accountability and oversight of government. All of this while managing costs and keeping quality high. Now and into the future, managed care is the right partnership.
