In 2013, 27% of individuals who received coverage through both Medicare and Medicaid lived in a rural area. Dually eligible beneficiaries living in rural areas often face distance and transportation barriers, a shortage of primary care providers, and limited access to specialty care. Health plans serving rural areas may require creative strategies to overcome barriers to member engagement.
This webinar will focus on how plans conduct initial outreach, build connections, and establish trust with rural dually eligible enrollees, as well as engagement strategies to assist them in managing their health. Speakers will share practical tips along with observed outcomes.
