InnovaCare Health to Cover Smartphone Costs for Some Members

Through its subsidiary MMM Healthcare (MMM), InnovaCare Health is offering a new benefit that covers the monthly cost of a smartphone to its more than 150,000 Medicare and Medicaid eligible beneficiaries under the MMM Bienestar Platino coverage, the company said.

This new benefit is the latest in a series of steps InnovaCare and its subsidiaries are taking to expand access to care and improve coordination of medical and social services.

Through this added benefit, members now have access to a new smartphone with Internet and unlimited calls, making it possible to more seamlessly coordinate things like healthcare services, medication orders and transportation. A third of MMM´s membership in Puerto Rico qualifies as dual-eligible, and many of these members suffer from chronic health conditions, making the ability to easily coordinate care across the healthcare continuum a critical component of InnovaCare´s proven model.

InnovaCare Health improves the lives of members and physicians through innovative solutions for value-based healthcare. In each unique market the company serves, InnovaCare works across the healthcare ecosystem — with patients, providers, payers and other partners — to increase access to high-quality, affordable care.

Based in White Plains, N.Y., InnovaCare has been on the forefront of value-based care for more than a decade, distributing risk and developing proprietary technologies to inspire patient and provider engagement. Through an integrated portfolio of health plans, medical service organizations, clinical networks and more, the company manages more than 500,000 lives, including more than 150,000 dual-eligible beneficiaries.
