TopicHow YOU can Coordinate the Benefits of Medicare and Medicaid – “Dual Eligible” Beneficiaries

Description: Millions of Americans are enrolled in both the Medicare and Medicaid programs – they are called ‘dual eligibles’.  This presentation will examine the characteristics of dual eligibility – the benefits that each program (Medicare and Medicaid) provides, how each program coordinates with the other, and the special problems that dual eligibility generates.  We will also look at the impact of the Community Health Choices (CHC) initiative on access and utilization of the health care by dual eligibles in Pennsylvania.  

Following the talk on dual eligibility, we will take a look at a pharmacy perspective on pharmaceutical companies. We will cover what makes the drug marketing world in our country unique, and how there are pros and cons to certain types of medications, namely combination medications.
