Sep 09, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Network Health, a nonprofit health plan that provides access to health coverage for more than 215,000 Massachusetts residents with low and moderate incomes, announced that open enrollment for One Care: MassHealth plus Medicare program will begin September 3, for an effective start date of October 1.
According to the company, Massachusetts residents in Worcester and Suffolk counties between the ages of 21 and 64 who are eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid can enroll in Network Health's new One Care plan, Network Health Unify, to gain access to health coverage coordinated by a dedicated care team.
"We are excited to launch Network Health Unify as part of the One Care program," said Pano Yeracaris, Network Health chief medical officer. "This innovative health care program will allow us to better serve adults with disabilities with the integrated care they deserve. We look forward to working with our providers to streamline coverage for members and their caregivers in a way that is empowering and optimizes health outcomes."
The goal of Network Health Unify, and the One Care program, is to offer individuals with disabilities who qualify for both Medicare and Medicaid a seamless experience. With Network Health Unify, members have one plan, one card, and one person to coordinate their care. This care coordinator will collaborate with a dedicated team of medical, behavioral, and social care management clinicians, to meet each member's needs.
Network Health Unify members have access to Network Health's trusted partner and provider network, which includes primary care providers, specialists, hospitals, and community organizations. For managing care around the clock, members can call a free 24/7 NurseLine, or log on to their member portal, Network Health Member Connect. To get up-to-date health information or use interactive tools like "Find a Doctor, Hospital, or Pharmacy," members can access the health plan's website (also available in Spanish). Additionally, the health plan's member services specialists are available to help out by phone in more than 170 languages.
