Statement from Mark E. Miller, Executive Vice President of Health Care at Arnold Ventures on the introduction of the Delivering Unified Access to Lifesaving Services (DUALS) Act.

Washington, D.C. (Mar. 14, 2024) – It is encouraging to see a bipartisan group of legislators come together to support solutions to improve care for the 12 million low-income older adults and people with disabilities who are eligible for and rely on Medicare and Medicaid. As the programs stand today, the financing system doesn’t work well for taxpayers, and the delivery system doesn’t work well for providers or patients. Our current disjointed system requires dual-eligible patients to navigate confusing choices, bureaucratic delays in getting care, and often worse health outcomes. This bill represents meaningful improvements to expand access to integrated Medicare and Medicaid programs, and it stands to create simpler, more patient-centered, and cost-effective care. Arnold Ventures looks forward to working with policymakers as they continue to refine this legislation.”
