The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (Innovation Center) released a Request for Information (RFI) seeking potential models for increasing engagement of Medicare beneficiaries, Medicaid beneficiaries, dual-eligible patients, and/or Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) beneficiaries. The Innovation Center has expressed particular interest in models that use evidence-based social and behavioral insights to get patients more actively involved in improving their health outcomes. Specifically, interventions that use methods from behavioral economics, social psychology, and incentive design to attract beneficiaries, encourage enrollment, and provide motivation for continued engagement are encouraged. The Innovation Center welcomes suggestions from all parties, including beneficiaries and their advocates, insurers, managed care plans, and employers.
The deadline to submit comments is Sept. 15. Submissions must be completed via the RFI web page. For more information, visit the Beneficiary Engagement Model Opportunities web page. Please contact Xiaoyi Huang, JD, director of policy, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202.585.0127, with questions.
