Predict Health and Rex Wallace Consulting Launch New Solution to Help D-SNPs Launch and Maintain Impactful Enrollee Advisory Committees
This new solution from Predict Health and Rex Wallace Consulting helps Medicare Advantage plans better engage Dual-Special Needs Plan (D-SNP) members, meet the new Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) requirements and improve their market competitiveness.
Predict Health, an innovative leader in building and maintaining Medicare member communities, in partnership with Rex Wallace Consulting, LLC (RWC), announced a new offering to help D-SNPs sustain a high-quality Enrollee Advisory Committee process for Medicare Advantage members.
Leading health plans are implementing streamlined processes to meet new CMS requirements to include enrollees in plan governance while improving plan performance. The requirement will become effective January 1, 2023. CMS estimates plans will spend $1 million on average to launch, manage and comply.
“Payers are committed to advancing care outcomes for their Medicare Advantage members consistent with CMS’ requirements,” said Predict Health CEO Shub Debgupta. “We have joined with leading carriers to deliver a proven approach to launch Enrollee Advisory Committees and drive plan performance. Our partnerships leverage a proven ability to identify, engage and reach varied Medicare members across any state, including hard-to-reach populations.”
