New website for advocates for dual eligibles

The National Senior Citizens Law Center (NSCLC) has launched a website to provide aging and disability advocates with tools and information about state delivery systems that integrate benefits and financing of both Medicare and Medicaid for the benefit of consumers who have both.

Features of the site include:
- Advocate tools for enrollment, appeals, financing, and consumer protections
- State profiles that describe the current status of demonstration projects for dual eligibles
- A Map that tells the user how many dual eligibles are in each state and what type of care model is under consideration
- Federal guidance related to the dual eligible demonstrations
- Recommended reading about the systems, programs, and policies currently serving dual eligibles

Users may sign up to receive updates about dual eligibles.

WV is currently listed as having no demonstration projects related to dual eligibles.

The project and site are funded in part by the Commonwealth Fund, the Nathan Cummings Foundation and Atlantic Philanthropies.
