Managed Care - MI Health Link

Skilled nursing facilities are the largest providers of post-acute and long-term care for Medicaid and Medicare beneficiaries.  They provide care in settings which are cost effective while advancing quality.  SNFs continue to meet the traditional long-term skilled nursing needs of their residents.  Today’s nursing facilities also meet the specialized clinical care needs of older adults and persons with disabilities.  Complex clinical care offered in many nursing facilities includes wound care, dialysis, chest tube care, trach care, IV antibiotics, ventilator care, chronic disease management and more. 

As Integrated Care Organizations (ICOs) prepare to serve beneficiaries eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid, it will be important to have information on all the long-term and post-acute care providers in the region to ensure patient, resident and family choice and quality of services provided.  The directory provides information on facility locations, identifies key personnel and describes clinical specialties available at that site.  We hope that this information is helpful in identifying and building relationships with the skilled nursing facilities in the region.

Integrated Care Organizations
The MI Health Link pilot project has contracted with selected health plans in Michigan that currently are both a Medicare Advantage Plan and a Medicaid Health Plan. These health plans designated as Integrated Care Organizations (ICO) will manage acute, primary, pharmacy, dental, and long term supports and services.
