Medicare

Maximizing your MTM Programs to Drive Improved Health Outcomes

Tuesday, October 25 – 8 a.m. – 8:45 a.m.

The ever-changing Medicare landscape is requiring plans to adapt their Medication Therapy Management (MTM) programs by employing new strategies, innovative initiatives, and different uses of technology to be able to provide the best in class, holistic care your members need. Session attendees will learn how to strategically up their MTM game through care coordination amongst providers, members, nurse care coordinators and pharmacies to maximize health outcomes. We will also demonstrate how plan sponsors could be using MTM programs to tackle challenging performance measures and major healthcare issues like the opioid epidemic.

 

Medicaid

Managing Opioid Utilization in Your Medicaid Benefit

Thursday, October 27; 8 a.m. – 8:45 a.m.

Opioid utilization is a topic that is center stage in the national spotlight, but has long been a focus of Medicaid plans. In this session, attendees will hear some of the latest observations about opioid utilization in the Medicaid population and learn best practices to help manage this increasingly concerning class of drugs. We will also share tools health plans can use to analyze their trend and make changes before problems start.
