  • Choose your own adventure: Small group breakouts on specific topics you're tackling to prepare your bid - from Part B buydowns to supporting your MA members' caregivers

Townhall discussion with CMMI

Join CMMI leadership to dig into the incubation programs they are most excite about: how CMS hopes to evolve VBID, support equitable health outcomes, and further develop their multi-payor strategy to achieve the best care possible for Medicare-eligible beneficiaries. We’ll dig into a few areas during this discussion and how CMMI initiatives will impact regional and provider-sponsored health plans

  • What do you think regional and provider-affiliated MAOs might gain from participating in the VBID model?
  • What resources exist to help regional and provider-affiliated MAOs consider and participate in the VBID model?
  • How might the VBID continue to evolve in the future?
  • Beyond VBID, what other CMMI activities might interest regional and provider-affiliated MAOs?

Alliance members’ MA Supplemental Benefits Data Pilot Show and Tell: What we’ve learned and where we’re going next

While we’ve been busy in our weekly MASBC learning sessions, a small group of HPA member plan pioneers have been hard at work with Wakely, building and running a pilot project on Supplemental Benefits analytics reporting and benchmarking. Our goal? To enhance the MASBC by providing Alliance members with actionable data analytics and performance benchmarking to help inform broader business perspective on opportunities and risks. Together, this pioneer group has used WAHOO, Wakely’s Analytics Health Operations Optimization platform, to build a HPA-custom version to provide a…

  • Single source of truth and data flow
  • Dashboard analytics technology
  • Actuarial-backed analytics focused on key profit drivers and membership growth
  • Supplemental benefits performance benchmarking and summary reporting

While the study’s deep analysis is available exclusively to our pioneer pilot participants, in this session we will share our key take aways with the MASBC workgroup at large and will also share our vision for the future of this project: How we believe continued and deeper collaboration can support HPA plans in their ongoing efforts to serve their members, positively impact health outcomes, and grow in their MA markets.

Braindate café: Collaborative problem solving with your Alliance peers

Sometimes the best discussions are those that occur in-between sessions, which is why we’re creating space for meaningful engagement among workshop attendees. Pull up a chair and engage in small group deep dives on the issues most on your mind. You’ll hear how other Alliance members are approaching the issue and gain fresh perspectives and new ideas to support your product development work back at home.
