Dual Eligibles - FIDA Demo

 

Dual eligibles, or individuals who qualify for both Medicare and Medicaid, are among New York State’s costliest and most complex Medicaid beneficiaries. The Fully Integrated Duals Advantage Program (FIDA), a Federal demonstration opportunity, establishes a fully capitated managed care program that integrates a comprehensive array of Medicare, Medicaid, and supplemental services, including behavioral health care and long-term supports and services. The program has two goals: to improve the coordination of care for dual eligibles and to better control spending.
