Presbyterian Reduces Costs for High-Risk Patients

06/10/2017 | Modern Healthcare

Presbyterian is preventing frequent trips to the ER and the large medical bills that follow through its Complete Care program. “We’ve been able to operate successfully in this Medicaid and Medicare payment environment because we’ve been so efficient in managing the cost of care,” Presbyterian Health Plan President Brandon Fryar said to Modern Healthcare, in an interview arranged by ACHP. In the first year of the program, Medicare Advantage members had 50 percent fewer hospitalizations and readmissions.
