Free Webinar – From Mission to Fruition: Developing Your Relationships with Payers

Source: National Association of States United for Aging and Disabilities (NASUAD) and Administration for Community Living (ACL)

Community Based Organizations (CBO)* seeking to sell or deliver services to health plans and other payers must evaluate their market, understand their value proposition and target services to needs. This activity requires CBOs to gather information that will provide insight and a new perspective on potential opportunities. Successful organizations will use that information to creatively adapt to the environment they are working within.

Join ACL and NASUAD on August 23, 2017 from 12:30 – 1:30 p.m. Eastern as Lee Schulz, President and CEO of IndependenceFirst in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Carrie Hobbs Guiden, Executive Director of The Arc Tennessee in Nashville, TN provide examples, lessons learned and tips on how to engage with the payer community. 

From Mission to Fruition: Developing your Relationships with Payers

Learning Objectives:

  • Gain tips from the experiences of disability CBOs
  • Understand how to align your services with payer goals
