Commonwealth Coordinated Care is a new initiative to coordinate care for
individuals who are currently served by both Medicare and Medicaid and meet
certain eligibility requirements. The program is designed to be Virginia’s
single program to coordinate delivery of primary, preventive, acute, behavioral,
and long-term services and supports. In this way, the individual receives high
quality, person centered care that is focused on their needs and preferences.
The goals of this initiative include: improved quality and health outcomes,
streamlined Medicare and Medicaid requirements, increased accountability, reduced
burden for enrollees and providers, providing care in each individual’s setting
of choice, and reduced avoidable services. Supplementary benefits will include
care coordination, interdisciplinary care teams, and person-centered care plans.
