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 the exacerbation of issues. All these factors drive up the cost of care and affect quality ratings.
For over a decade Amwell 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.
