At the hearing, Members will examine the quality and performance of Medicare Advantage programs that serve our most vulnerable Medicare beneficiaries, specifically Special Needs Plans and the Program for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly. Members will hear from stakeholders on the barriers to expanding and strengthening these two programs, and discuss more broadly how value-based insurance design can increase plan flexibility and help deliver integrated and coordinated care that helps Medicare beneficiaries.
Upon announcing the hearing, House Ways and Means Health Subcommittee Chairman Pat Tiberi (R-OH) said:
“These programs offer an important option for at-risk seniors and individuals living with disabilities. With billions invested each year, it’s important to ensure these programs are not only in the best interest of the Medicare population, but also the best interest of taxpayers and future beneficiaries. I look forward to hearing from our witnesses about the challenges associated with serving high-cost, high-need Medicare beneficiaries and the benefits that integrated care and value-based models can provide.”
