MHPA Letter to Secretary Sebelius

CapitalThomas Johnston, President of the Medicaid Health Plans of America wrote a letter this week to Secretary Sebelius, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. We feel his message, of support, guidance and urgency is an important one. We applaud his efforts encouraging HHS to continue the improvement/updating of payment models, tracking systems and policies that govern how care management is handled for the “duals”. We have included a link to the letter below.
