While reviewing the NYS Medicaid Managed Care Kick Off Videos (Part 1 and Part 2), there was an interesting tool referenced on slide 78. The Managed Care Technical Assistance Center (MCTAC) has created an online readiness tool for managed care. Although, the date to participate in their data collection and dissemination has passed, it is a very useful tool for assessing your organization’s readiness, and identifying areas of strength and improvement. It is a five-page tool you will want to use with your leadership team and staff. Here’s an example, does your organization have an individual responsible for managing the Quality Assurance/ Quality Study expectations of MCOs? I hope you find it valuable in preparing for the future.
