Learn why states will have unprecedented license to structure Medicaid programs to meet the unique needs of vulnerable populations in their states.
Understand the growing role of managed care organizations in serving Medicaid populations, including children, adults, and a growing number of individuals with complex conditions, developmental disabilities, and long-term care needs.
