About the Task Force

Despite the fact that two-thirds of Medicare beneficiaries have two or more chronic conditions, care for many of these individuals is fragmented. Beneficiaries often may shuffle between numerous providers serving in multiple care settings, including doctors’ offices, the ER and in-patient hospital facilities. Without sufficient coordination across these various points of care, the health issues these beneficiaries are already facing may be compounded.

To address this important problem and critical need, the Coalition for Medicare Choices (CMC), an AHIP-founded effort, is collaborating with leading aging, caregiver, patient, provider and minority health organizations on a unique venture called the Medicare Advantage Care Coordination (MACC) Task Force. Through its Care Coordination Saves Lives campaign, the MACC Task Force aims to identify and raise awareness of best-in-class care coordination practices and policies that have the potential to improve the health and well-being of Medicare beneficiaries.
