As a national Medicaid Managed Care Organization, UnitedHealthcare Community & State follows and assesses the emerging trends and system pressures that our state partners face. This awareness helps us evolve our Medicaid programs to better serve and meet the comprehensive needs of our members. And by better understanding the pressures that states face, we can help create cost-efficient approaches to help improve health outcomes for individuals nationwide.
In this Perspectives video, we asked the following questions:
- What pressures are states facing in their Medicaid programs?
- What are the biggest challenges facing state Medicaid leaders?
- What is the role of Managed Care Organizations in the future of Medicaid?
