Flexible and Scalable Plan Design

Not every state’s Medicaid program looks the same. We support all types of state-sponsored programs, including full risk, risk-share models and carve outs.

  • Optimize plan performance and prevent fraud, waste & abuse with utilization analysis and management supported by highly effective and customizable control measures
  • Turn data into actionable insights on program performance, cost drivers, utilization trends and other key program KPIs with, monthly, quarterly and ad-hoc reports
  • Access data anytime through secure, HIPAA-compliant web portals for members, providers and clients

Best-in-Class Member Experience

We’ve tested, refined and proven our processes to make the most of every client’s program. Trust us to help you increase HEDIS scores and member satisfaction.

  • Omnichannel member engagement - Meet all members where they are with printed welcome kits, teledentistry, mobile apps, SMS, contact centers with a 24-hour integrated voice response system and more
