Addressing barriers to care or disparities in health populations
Our core care team’s high-touch management helps members make appointments, arrange transportation to appointments, and adhere to treatment regimens. Our peer support programs can help support the member’s health and wellness between appointments. The net result is improvement to the member’s overall health – mental and physical.
