June 28, 2017: Are We Saying the Same Thing? The Language of Long Term Services and Supports and Managed Care
The words people and organizations use demonstrates their perspective on an issue and provides a frame of reference for discussions. However, different fields, populations and organizations have varying degrees of understanding and use of the terminologies used by those they may want to do business with. Community Based Organizations (CBO) looking to work with new integrated care/service systems such as Managed Long-Term Services and Supports (MLTSS) need to understand the common terminology used in those systems. Join us on June 28, 2017 from 12:30 – 1:30 p.m. ET to learn more about how the use of a common language can help further your efforts to develop collaborative relationships with health plans and other integrated care or service systems while continuing to further your mission.
- Recognize the business terminology used in managed care
- Understand how the terminology used in integrated care/service systems relate to long term services and supports
- Gain an understanding of common business terminology
