Introducing the DecisionPoint Webinar Series

You are here

May 26, 2015

Given the popularity of our recent webinar series, we are continuing to provide expert analysis on the topics that impact leaders of government health programs. Our next series, the DecisionPointTM Webinar Series, will feature subject matter experts on public health insurance programs, with a focus on lessons learned from experiences that states can apply to their current programs. As we begin the series, we will start with webinars on the Dual Eligibles population, a growing concern for state health programs, and Pharmacy Benefits Management programs, an evolving program necessary to help state Medicaid program participants access the medications they need. The DecisionPoint Webinar Series will continue through the end of the year and we will announce more webinars in the near future. Here are some more details on the first two installments:

Lessons Learned from the Dual Eligibles Demonstrations: Real-Life Takeaways from California and Other States” will take place Thursday, May 28, from 1:00-2:00 p.m. EDT. In this webinar, Toby Douglas, former director of California’s Department of Health Care Services and their lead on the State’s Dual Eligibles program, and Barbara Selter, a MAXIMUS long-term care expert who has worked with many states on their demonstrations, will share insights into how these demonstrations were enacted, their successes and challenges, and how their lessons learned can be applied to other state demonstrations.

In this webinar, our experts Mark Steck, Pharm.D, an independent Pharmaceutical Consultant with more than 20 years of managed care health plan experience, and J.P. Crouse, a MAXIMUS Pharmacy Benefits Management expert with extensive experience in state solutions, will share their insights. These will include how Medicaid PBM programs can meet new demands, including how to cope with the accelerating introduction of hyper-expensive and complex specialty therapies, how to rapidly adjust to rules changes, and how to effectively address the complexities of managing multiple PBM programs.
