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 Healthcare Revolution and Its Impact on Medicare Advantage.
CMS has revealed significant changes to policies governing health care delivery. New options in benefit design for Medicare Advantage plans are expanding opportunities for health plans to bend the cost curve. This includes flexibility in designing benefits to cover factors of health that have previously been outside the purview of healthcare, including access to healthy food, transportation to medical appointments / fitness opportunities and even personal home helpers. Additionally, consumer demand for convenience is also driving innovation. Medicare Advantage health plans are looking for creative ways to leverage these changes form CMS, designing benefit plans that not only appeal to aging seniors but also help to improve outcomes while controlling costs.
“More than ever seniors want to live independently and age in place, and these changes in the Medicare Advantage program help to make that possible,” said Christopher P. Minton, Executive Vice President of RAM Technologies, Inc. “New options in benefit design are being implemented by Medicare Advantage plans, shifting the focus from institutionalized care; to keeping the senior in the comfort of his or her home. As the Medicare Advantage program continues to evolve, RAM continues to enhance our end-to-end platform (Medicare Advantage-in-a-Box) supporting health plans as they look for creative ways to serve the ever-changing needs of the Medicare Advantage marketplace.”
This report highlights ways in which Medicare Advantage carriers are developing closer relationships, not only with healthcare providers but also with community groups and businesses, all to bring about more effective, integrated, holistic care for their members.
