Integrated Care for Persons Dually Eligible for Medicare and MedicaidThe Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) is developing a demonstration to strengthen services and supports for individuals who are dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid. In the demonstration, services and supports for persons who are dually eligible will be delivered by newly created Integrated Care Organizations (ICOs) and currently existing Prepaid Inpatient Health Plans (PIHPs). ICOs will be responsible for the provision of all physical health, long term care, and pharmacy services, while PIHPs will be expected to cover behavioral health and habilitative services for people with developmental disabilities, mental illness, or substance use issues. The ICOs and PIHPs will be connected through the Care Bridge, a care model that requires the coordination of services and supports between the two entities and involved providers.
