Care at Home Expanded for Medicare Advantage Patients

Date:
June 26, 2020

To: Primary Care Providers

Contracts affected: Medicare Advantage

Beginning on July 7, more Medicare Advantage patients will be eligible to enroll in a new extension of the Care at Home program -- Care at HomeSM On Call -- which offers some urgent care in-home services. Care at Home On Call will be offered to newly enrolled Medicare Advantage members, and will include:

  • An initial in-home assessment
  • 24/7 provider availability by phone

Both services will be provided by Landmark Health at no cost. Landmark currently provides in-home care to patients with multiple chronic and serious conditions through the Care at Home program. Interactions with patients will be reported to attributed primary care providers.

If you have questions about the program, please contact your practice account manager, or call Landmark at 1-833-874-1541.
