Many patients receiving care from InnovaCare Health do so through physician practice services and Medicare Advantage. Medicare Advantage is a government funded health insurance program which provides managed health care to enrolled patients through HMOs, PPO, and other types of private health care providers. The services covered through Medicare Advantage include in-patient hospital services, payments for surgeons, physicians, emergency room visits, diagnostic tests, x-rays, some durable medical supplies and equipment and other outpatient hospital services. Many Medicaid Advantage plans also cover prescription drugs.
Medicaid Advantage differs from original Medicaid in who provides the treatment and through whom payments are made. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services or CMS is responsible for making payments for the treatments patients receive under original Medicaid. With Medicaid Advantage, commercial insurance companies pay the claims and are reimbursed by the federal government without having to go through CMS. Most Medicaid beneficiaries qualify for Medicare Advantage. As of 2014, there were in excess of 15 people enrolled in Medicare Advantage. Many of them had previously been enrolled in original Medicare.
InnovaCare makes Medicaid Advantage very attractive to many beneficiaries because of the quality of care, strong patient-provider relationships, patient first orientation, and strong, top-class physicians involved with the company. This combination fostered by the visionary InnovaCare leadership results in healthier outcomes, an enhanced quality of life, as well as significantly improved emotional and mental well-being for the patients.
