Announcing LeadingAge Washington’s Strategic Initiative * The LeadingCare Network * RSVP Today!

LeadingAge Washington members developed a managed care network to achieve quality performance standards and better leverage the collective strength of our membership with managed care plans and commercial insurers.  LeadingCare Network has been a member-driven, strategic initiative to help members understand the complexities of contracting with commercial and Medicare Advantage Plans, achieve administrative efficiencies, and better position members for the future. 

We are hosting regional informational meetings on March 5-7, 2019 at the following locations and times:

  • Tuesday, March 5: Harbor View Manor, 919 Fawcett Ave, Tacoma, 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. * Directions

Every LeadingAge Washington community, particularly those providing Medicare skilled care, is strongly encouraged to have representation at one of these regional meetings!  At these informational meetings, we will answer your questions. These meetings are open to organizational leaders, management team members, and board members. 

Please RSVP regarding which regional meeting you plan to attend and who will be attending from your organization, using this  Registration Link  by March 1st. Meeting details will be sent to registered attendees prior to the meeting.      

We invite you and your organization to join the LeadingCare Network.  Based upon the success achieved in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Iowa, we have engaged the Managed Care Division of Strategic Health Care to develop network strategies and negotiate contracts with the payors on your behalf. We have a new fair and attractive membership fee structure that provides access to quality performance trends and reports, contracting and claims resolution, among other benefits.

We have a target of June 1, 2019 for enrollment into the Network.  As a LeadingAge Washington member you can join the Network at any time. 

We hope you will participate at one of the regional meetings.  If you have any questions in the meantime, or know of others who may have interest in the network, please do not hesitate to contact Deb at
