With mounting evidence demonstrating the influence of nonclinical and social factors—such as unstable housing, food insecurity and interpersonal violence—on health outcomes and healthcare costs, social determinants of health (SDOH) have edged into the mainstream. State Medicaid agencies and other stakeholders are driving the SDOH evolution from theory to practice. Recognizing that solving the healthcare problem starts with attacking its root causes, they are increasingly developing innovative strategies to address Medicaid enrollees’ SDOH-related needs and crafting sustainable funding solutions.

Manatt Health will review the role that Medicaid agencies and Medicaid managed care plans are playing in testing SDOH-related interventions and integrating them into their healthcare delivery system—creating a platform for “whole person” care that seamlessly addresses individual physical, behavioral and social needs.

Please join us on Tuesday, December 11, 2018, at 1 PM Eastern as Manatt Health's Melinda Dutton, Cindy Mann, Jocelyn Guyer and Elizabeth Osius present their insights, perspectives and findings regarding applying SDOH in the Medicaid managed care arena, in the HealthcareWebSummit event: Addressing Social Determinants of Health: SDOH in Medicaid Managed Care.
