Experiences Implementing Social Risk Factor Screening Measures in Medicaid
On Tuesday, June 14, State Health and Value Strategies hosted a webinar that featured state officials and Medicaid managed care entities from Rhode Island and Massachusetts who shared their experiences implementing social risk factor screening measurement.
The webinar aimed to bring together those in states who have implemented social risk factor screening measures for incentive use in managed care contracts. States use these social risk factor screening measures to hold plans and provider entities accountable for identifying Medicaid members affected by risk factors, such as homelessness and food insecurity. Consequently, members can be connected to appropriate services and resources to reduce their risk, improve their health and ultimately, reduce healthcare spending. During the webinar, Bailit Health provided a brief overview of state Medicaid agencies that have implemented social risk factor screening.
