New Community Catalyst Paper Examines Health Equity Provisions in the Duals Demonstrations

A new paper by Community Catalyst examines provisions in the documents guiding the dual eligible demonstration projects as they relate to addressing racial and ethnic health disparities and lays out a set of recommendations to move toward achieving health equity for dual eligibles. Findings from a Community Catalyst survey of the dual demonstration project documents published to date reveal that while the addressing of health disparities is often present as a broadly stated goal, details of how this goal will be operationalized are largely missing. The paper makes recommendations in the following areas: cultural competency in care delivery, language access, quality and monitoring, and consumer engagement.
