Overcome with significant barriers, Medicaid members who lack access typically show up in the ER or do nothing at all.  Often these members have routine healthcare needs or may suffer from chronic conditions.  Mobility and lack of community behavioral health providers contribute to exacerbation of issues.  All these factors drive up the cost of care and effect quality ratings.

For over a decade American Well has been making it easy for our health plan partners to significantly extend access and more holistically care for members by augmenting existing local networks.

With a robust telehealth offering, we can make it easy for your Medicaid members to get access to the healthcare they need. 

By providing access via live video visits, health plans are successfully diverting their Medicaid members away from the ER.  Members can access telehealth 24/7/365 without an appointment – from home, work or out in the community.  Join this webinar to learn how telehealth can help your health plan:

  • Drive down costs by offering an easy, convenient option to access care
  • Divert members away from costly ERs for routine care
  • Extend local network availability by offering night time and weekend coverage
  • Provide behavioral health services with access to therapists, psychologists, and physiatrists  
  • Address the unique access challenges of Medicaid members, particular in rural areas
  • Manage chronic conditions via more frequent touches
  • Create a more integrated and coordinated member experience
