The collaboration with Emcara Health expands access to care for Aetna Better Health’s more than 240,000 covered members across Florida.
FRANKLIN, Tenn., October 5, 2022 – Emcara Health, PopHealthCare’s national value-based medical group that delivers advanced in-home primary care for seniors and under-resourced populations, announced today that it is collaborating with Aetna Better Health of Florida, a CVS Health company. The relationship extends Emcara Heath’s comprehensive primary care model – which includes behavioral health and social determinants of health assessments – to adult Aetna Medicaid members.
“For many of our members, including those with chronic and complex conditions, receiving coordinated and holistic health care where they are is essential for improving their health and quality of life,” said Jennifer Sweet, CEO, Aetna Better Health of Florida. “Our new value-based collaboration with Emcara Health will combine direct care delivery, attention to social care needs and 24/7 support to improve health outcomes and reduce cost of care.”
Launching in the Tampa Bay, Orlando and Miami-Dade areas, Emcara Health will deploy physician-led multidisciplinary care teams to provide integrated, person-centered primary care to members in the home or wherever they call home. These teams consist of complex care physicians, community health workers (CHW), nurse practitioners, registered nurses, physical and behavioral health care coordinators, and licensed clinical social workers, all collaborating to address barriers members navigate when it comes to their health, such as behavioral health, transportation, food access, and more.
“Aetna Better Health of Florida and Emcara Health are like-minded organizations that are passionate about expanding access to comprehensive care for the people who need it most,” says Eric Galvin, CEO of Emcara Health. “The value-based models enable us to better impact patient outcomes by facilitating care focused on the whole person, not just their specific conditions.”
