RAM Technologies, Inc., the perennial leader in the development of enterprise software for Medicare Advantage health plans, is pleased to announce the availability of a new report as part of the “Sharing Knowledge to Improve Healthcare Administration” (SKIHA) program. This month, members of the SKIHA program (free registration) are granted complimentary access to the RAM report, The New Medicare Advantage.
Mounting evidence suggests that socioeconomic and environmental factors affect health outcomes as much as – if not more than – clinical care. As a result, CMS has expanded the definition of “primarily health related” benefits, and increased the use of previously allowed supplemental benefits, providing Medicare Advantage plans with the necessary tools to address social determinants of health. For MA plans that embrace this change, this is an opportunity to realize significant savings while improving the health and wellness of their members.
“In the new landscape, Medicare Advantage plans have added flexibility to expand ancillary benefits,” stated Robert A. Tulio, President of RAM Technologies, Inc. “These services can include non-emergency transportation, provider house calls, social worker telephone support, adult day care and more. These offerings have the potential to reduce costs, to the plan and the beneficiary, as well as to improve the quality of life for seniors across America.”
