The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a seismic shift to the economy and access to health care. As unemployment rates reach record highs, a staggering number of Americans are transitioning from employer-provided insurance to Medicare Advantage, Managed Medicaid plans, or the health care marketplace. Challenges with members knowing where and how to access routine and preventive care have only increased with the pandemic. Together, the result can be increased risk and cost to payers.
Quest Diagnostics supports risk identification efforts by helping health insurance providers gain a more comprehensive understanding of new member disease history prior to receiving the first claim. You will learn how access to new member lab history prior to their coverage can help health insurance providers act earlier, when outreach and intervention often have the most impact. In addition, you will learn about our Risk and Gap in Care capabilities that provide essential services in order to close HEDIS and Stars gaps, from telehealth to in-home, lab-based, self-administered testing to help members stay engaged and follow their normal routine of participating in these programs.
