This will allow BDT to create the ‘‘cleanest’’ list possible of potential LIS-eligibles. BDT reported that use of similarly refined lists for outreach efforts to low income populations has increased the enrollment success rate, and decreased the cost of enrollment. Secondly, NCOA is seeking CMS funding to evaluate alternative, listbased outreach strategies. NCOA intends to partner with L&M Policy Research for the evaluation of intervention approaches. In addition, NCOA will rely on Bridgespan to be an advisor for cost-effectiveness studies. Evaluation of these approaches could supplement existing market research knowledge, and be useful for quality improvement of ongoing and future beneficiary outreach efforts for LIS.
