Amerigroup and Renaissance Physicians Organization Collaborate to Deliver High-Quality Health Care
Jul 27 17
Amerigroup and Renaissance Physicians Organization (RPO) have teamed up to provide proactive, patient-centered health care to individuals covered under Amerigroup Medicare Advantage plans available in the Greater Houston area. This collaboration, which will be effective August 1, will also increase access to primary care groups and specialists for some of the state’s most vulnerable populations. Renaissance Physicians Organization enters into an agreement known as risk-based payments. In this model, clinicians will be rewarded based on keeping their patients healthy and not on the number of procedures or tests performed. The intent of this approach is to encourage clinicians to work with their patients, focus more on preventive care, and make care coordination a priority. They will also aim to identify any possible health problems before they become harmful and result in avoidable procedures and associated costs, such as being admitted to the hospital. This collaboration includes Amerivantage Select and Amerivantage Dual Coordination, which are health plans available to individuals in the region who are eligible for Medicare, or Medicare and Medicaid. The plans provide extra benefits not available with traditional Medicare. Amerivantage Select (HMO) offers $0 premiums and low out-of-pocket costs, including $0 copay for primary care visits and preventive care, such as annual physical, dental vision and hearing exams. Amerivantage Dual Coordination (HMO SNP) features a $0 premium for individuals with Medicare and qualifying Medicaid; $0 copay for routine foot care; free transportation for medical and pharmacy visits; and up to $2,500 per year toward the purchase of dental services, such as dentures, crowns and oral surgery. Both plans offer, at no additional cost to members, extra dental, vision and hearing benefits; transportation coverage for medical visits; monthly access to the SilverSneakers® fitness program. Members also receive money toward the purchase of eyewear, hearing aids and health care items, such as cold and allergy products, dental products, and vitamins. People covered by these plans are able to see RPO’s doctors, nurses, and other health care professionals as in-network providers and have access to a variety of RPO services. RPO’s approach to health care centers around the idea of closely coordinating a patient’s care between primary care provider, specialists, case managers, other clinicians, and hospitals. The group also believes strong doctor-patient relationships are essential to good health. Amerigroup and RPO believe this collaboration will make health care easier for individuals who are eligible for both Medicaid and Medicare also known as dual eligible. Specifically, individuals who already use RPO’s network of clinics under their Medicare, or Medicare and Medicaid plan, will now have the choice to continue seeing the same RPO doctors and nurses when they also enroll in Medicare Advantage plans such as Amerivantage Dual Coordination, a plan designed for individuals who are dual eligible.
