Following the publication of this year’s Emerging Trends in Public Programs report, we’re already focused on what comes next. We asked members of our leadership team what trends they're watching & we heard a broad range of possible impacts to the Medicaid programs for the coming year, including:
- Implementation of more value-based payment models geared toward behavioral health, especially for populations that may not already utilize these services.
- Heightened focus on health equity, including in rural communities.
- Improved use of data and digital platforms, including how we connect with partners to utilize data findings and create interventions.
- Evolution of services for individuals with complex care needs and improving support for family caregivers.
