HSAs, Cost Sharing, Payment Enforcement, and Healthy Behavior Programs in Medicaid - June 8th, 2017

Building on the Health Affairs Blog post released today, this webinar will focus on current health reform proposals and anticipated regulatory guidance under the Trump administration aim to broaden state flexibility in the design and operation of Medicaid programs. Several of the proposed changes, including implementing Health Savings Accounts (HSAs), charging monthly contributions and copays for services, disenrolling those who fall behind on payments, and rewarding enrollees who engage in certain healthy behaviors, build upon efforts currently underway in states that expanded their Medicaid programs with Section 1115 waivers. 

The objective of this webinar is to discuss the available evidence on how HSAs, cost sharing, payment enforcement, and healthy behavior programs in 1115 waivers have worked in several states, including Arkansas, Indiana, and Michigan. This webinar will include a summary of these changes, available evidence from state waiver evaluations, and best practices for state and federal policymakers considering implementing similar programs.
