      • State directed payments (SDPs) are a topic of increasing interest among federal regulatory officials and state Medicaid leaders. This panel discussion will offer insight into the role SDPs can play in advancing delivery system reform efforts as well as strategic initiatives aimed at enhancing access to care and improving the quality of care offered to Medicaid members. The panel will also explore recent draft regulations issued by federal authorities, seeking to further define the parameters guiding the establishment and maintenance of SDPs.
