WellCare Health Plans, Inc. and AbleTo, Inc., a leading provider organization of virtual behavioral health care, announced the launch of a new program to serve WellCare’s Medicare Advantage members in New York. Working with the WellCare team, AbleTo analyzes health data and identifies members who would benefit from treatment, and then delivers that care virtually or over the telephone through a nationwide network of skilled professionals. Members work with a therapist and coach for up to eight weeks of personalized care.
Nearly 44 million Americans experience mental illness in a given year, yet 60% of adults didn’t receive treatment in the U.S. in 2018. Unaddressed behavioral health conditions can significantly impact a person’s overall health and well-being. AbleTo’s evidence-based, structured treatment improves clinical outcomes and reduces medical costs.
AbleTo virtual behavioral health care services are available to all WellCare Medicare Advantage members in the state of New York. As of March 31, 2019, WellCare serves approximately 310,000 members in New York, including 157,000 Medicaid members, 89,000 Medicare Advantage plan members, and 64,000 Medicare Prescription Drug Plan members.
AbleTo, Inc. is a market leader in providing technology-enabled behavioral health care. AbleTo has been treating consumers for over six years, and improves outcomes and lowers costs by providing treatment that integrates behavioral and medical health care. AbleTo’s structured therapy programs strengthen medical recovery and self-care among members with chronic or complex clinical needs. AbleTo analytics, coupled with the multi-channel engagement platform, identify and engage members with unmet, often undiagnosed, behavioral health needs.
WellCare Health Plans, Inc. focuses primarily on providing government-sponsored managed care services to families, children, seniors, and individuals with complex medical needs primarily through Medicaid, Medicare Advantage, and Medicare Prescription Drug Plans, as well as individuals in the Health Insurance Marketplace.
