Medicaid Managed Care
For more than 74 million Americans, Medicaid is a social safety net that provides access to health care. This important program not only helps to support at-risk populations like pregnant women, the elderly, and the disabled, but also able-bodied, working adults and children who can’t afford health care on their own.
Since our founding in 1983, AmeriHealth Caritas has made it our primary mission to care for these vulnerable people. As a managed care organization (MCO), we specialize in improving Medicaid’s base services with innovation, flexibility, and a focus on community outreach.
Our integrated model of care treats the whole person, including the social determinants of housing, food, employment, and more that impact health. By coordinating the many aspects of a person’s care, we can produce better health outcomes for members — and more consistent, efficient spending for you.
Preserving Medicaid for Future Generations
Medicaid is a crucial program in our fight for health care access for the poor and most vulnerable in society. But current political rhetoric seems to view it — and those who benefit from it — solely in unflattering myths and stereotypes.
On October 17, AmeriHealth Caritas Chairman and CEO Paul Tufano attended the National Conference on Medicaid in Washington, D.C., where he delivered a keynote on how we can help demonstrate Medicaid's effectiveness, the steps we can take to improve it even more, and the duty we all share to preserve it for future generations.
