Limited Capacity seats available

Sounds like common sense Ÿ?? if people have access to healthy food, an accessible, affordable home, rewarding work and close relationships, they will have a better quality of life, and be better able to manage their health care. But the service system has parsed people and their services up by what gets paid for, who can provide it, and how available it is. Managed care is recognizing that these Ÿ??social determinants of healthŸ? have an important impact on the health outcomes of their members and on the resources states want them to manage. Presenters will share some research on the relationship between these common sense supports and health outcomes, and describe how Anthem / Amerigroup is incorporating an awareness of the importance of social supports in the company and building these supports into their managed care programs. Ÿ?? Participants will become familiar with current research in the importance of social determinants of health Ÿ?? Participants will identify barriers to obtaining these supports in their various states and what can be done to address the barriers Ÿ?? Participants will provide feedback to presenters on how to improve access to social supports in managed care programs
