Integrating Medicare and Medicaid

Twenty-six states have applied to the federal government to combine Medicaid and Medicare.  Under these applications, up to two million dual-eligibles (persons eligible for both Medicaid and Medicare) would be transferred into an integrated Medicaid/ Medicare health care system.  In most cases, they would receive care through a managed care organization.

The changes will be dramatic.  The potential benefits are substantial, but so are the potential risks for consumers.  At the state and federal levels, consumer advocacy will be vital in assuring that the new systems fulfill their potential and properly protect consumers’ rights to quality health care.
