Are You Ready For FIDA?
In December, the state will begin the process of enrolling about 170,000
dual-eligible recipients into specially
approved managed care FIDA plans that will coordinate services paid both by Medicare and Medicaid. Eligible
beneficiaries who do not actively enroll or opt out will be "passively enrolled" under a schedule just recently outlined
by the State Department of Health for
NYC, Long Island and Westchester.
This is a complex, monumental shift in payment and service delivery for home care. And it follows fast on the heels of
the state's effort to enroll certain
Medicaid beneficiaries into Managed
Long Term Care plans; now, under
FIDA, many of these same beneficiaries will have a new set of decisions to
make, and so do you.
Are you ready for FIDA? This daylong
conference on December 5 in Albany is designed to help you.
HCA has gathered the state's
preeminent experts on FIDA to give you
background and help you navigate all
of the strategic decisions that you will
need to make.
