GETTYSBURG, Pa., Feb. 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- OPEN MINDS has released eight of its updated state profiles, which are highly detailed reference guides that allow health and human service professionals and payers to examine specific state markets. The profiles include information on Medicaid financing systems, health insurance marketplace plans, population health insurance coverage by payer, key players in the local Medicaid departments, plans for future system changes, and contract re-procurement plans. The recently released states include AlaskaArizonaConnecticutGeorgiaNew JerseyOhioTennessee, and Washington.

New to the state profiles series this year is a section dedicated to long-term services and supports (LTSS) that provides financing and service delivery options insights for beneficiaries with chronic conditions and disabilities. Additionally, this section provides insight regarding the total number of LTSS beneficiaries, enrollment by delivery system, physical and behavioral health benefits available to the LTSS populations, and pending initiatives that will impact the service or delivery of LTSS services. States that integrate LTSS within their Medicaid health plan contracts or through separate LTSS contracts ensure predictability of costs, gain flexibility in designing the HCBS benefit package, and delegate care coordination to the health plan.

Each state profile provides all the market data, analysis, and "insider" insights executive teams need to build a successful strategic plan for operating or marketing in a specific state. OPEN MINDS provides up-to-date state-specific market data, analysis, and stakeholder information. The profiles offer a comprehensive state financing system analysis and serve as an effective reference guide for health and human service professionals.

All state profiles are available at no charge to Premium and Elite members of The OPEN MINDS Circle. Otherwise, each entire state profile can be purchased for $5,000.
