Dr. Roy Beveridge and Shara Cohen: Caregivers Are Key Opportunities for Your Medicare Advantage Strategy
Health plans today know that family caregivers are important to the health care system. Many of you have even been a family caregiver and know just how difficult the role can be. But, few health plans are providing support to make caregiving easier.

- The ROI for Caregiver Support and Engagement
- How to Identify and Engage the family caregivers in your membership

- 2022 opportunities to innovate (or begin!) your Caregiver Support Strategy
