Econometrica to Help State Programs With Medicare–Medicaid Enrollees
Econometrica will help CMS provide support services to State programs to improve the experience of Medicare–Medicaid enrollees
Bethesda, MD, September 2017
Econometrica, Inc., was recently awarded a contract by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to provide support for State programs to integrate care and ensure program integrity for Medicare–Medicaid enrollees.
In partnership with Acumen, LLC, Econometrica will help State programs integrate care for Medicare–Medicaid enrollees by (1) helping States access data and (2) aiding Medicare-Medicaid Plan access to Medicare historical claims data (Parts A, B, and D). In addition, Econometrica will assist CMS to process data requests, conduct reviews, maintain the tracking system, and find opportunities to improve efficiencies in the process.
“Econometrica has a long history of dedicating itself to improving healthcare processes. We are proud to build on our experience working with the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and look forward to continuing to support CMS and State programs with valuable services,” President and CEO Cyrus Baghelai said.
Currently, millions of individuals enrolled in the Medicare and Medicaid programs receive fragmented care. The ACA established the Medicare–Medicaid Coordination Office within CMS to advance quality, reduce costs, and improve the experience of Medicare–Medicaid enrollees.
Econometrica will assist State Medicaid agencies with technical advice, including providing information on linking databases, creating analytic databases, conducting training calls and webinars, and providing consultation and data support. To improve efficiency, Econometrica will guide States on ways to address the limitations in CMS data and help States optimize their use of available data.
