Medicaid MCOs Use Resource Centers to Aid Member Health

From engaging members in cooking and self-defense classes to coaching them on specific health conditions, Medicaid managed care organizations are building out brick-and-mortar centers to better serve their enrollees. Three such MCOs shared their experiences at the 11th Annual Medicaid Innovations Forum, hosted by Strategic Solutions Network in Orlando from Feb. 5 to 7.

In an unusual case of competitors joining forces, Blue Shield of California Promise Health Plan and L.A. Care Health Plan said they are building out 14 co-branded “Community Resource Centers” that will serve a projected 1 million individuals in the Los Angeles area annually.
