Deciphering how MCOs work

As Wisconsinites grow older, they may need assistance managing their health. There are several long-term care programs that allow elderly individuals and adults with physical, developmental, or intellectual disabilities to remain at home and receive support for their health care needs. However, navigating the intricacies of managed care organizations (MCOs) can be time-consuming and confusing—which can be especially problematic for individuals with diminished capacity.

Legal Issues of the Aging 2019 will delve into how MCOs and other long-term care programs operate, so you can help your clients find the right program to meet their long-term care needs and goals.
