Key Medicaid Design Elements

At UnitedHealthcare Community & State, we understand that the future of a value-based approach to Medicaid reform calls for the combined efforts of state policymakers, providers, Managed Care Organizations, and more. While the benefits to this approach are clear, there are many key design elements to consider—from understanding populations at a community level to considering system-level budgeting regulations.

In this Perspectives video, we asked the following questions:

  • Which critical elements help ensure the sustainability of the Medicaid program?
  • What is important to consider in moving to value-based payment reform?
  • What role does community-based integration play in the Medicaid system?
