Community Supports & Resources

Time to read: less than a 1 minute.

Health plans that contract to provide comprehensive care to beneficiaries dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid may find it beneficial to collaborate with community partners that provide services beyond direct medical care such as housing, transportation for non-medical needs, and food. Leveraging existing providers of non-medical services can improve the plan’s ability to meet the various care needs of dually eligible members, improve overall health status, and ensure better outcomes for specific episodes of care.

Resources for Integrated Care has compiled guides providing brief descriptions, examples, and national directories of community partners by resource type, in addition to other resources.
