Early versions of managed care had been described as imposing services on people rather than working with them to design better coordinated and integrated support. What changed? In the recent iteration of managed care program design, companies have learned to ask people with disabilities and families what works best for them. In this presentation, members of the Anthem Disability Policy Engagement Team, the National Advisory Board (NAB) on Improving Health Care Services for Older Adults and People with Disabilities and self-advocates will discuss the ways Amerigroup /Anthem has learned to listen, engage and respond to self-advocates in order to support them to plan and implement services and supports that work for them and their families in the community, at work and at home. . ƒ?› Participants will learn about the structures that Anthem / Amerigroup has established to engage with their members with disabilities. ƒ?› Participants will explore several strategies for informing managed care what works that they can implement in their states. ƒ?› Participants will provide feedback to presenters on how to improve self-advocate and advocate engagement in managed care programs.
