Complex Care Program | Sept 2018 |
Prairie States is pleased to announce an expanded relationship with Mayo Clinic, a coordinated approach to diagnostics and treatment for members facing serious health issues. Mayo Clinic’s Complex Care Program will be made available to Prairie States members, giving them access to physicians and facilities consistently rated among the best in the nation.
By working closely with Mayo Clinic, Prairie States will provide streamlined care for members facing rare and complex health conditions, getting them effective treatment by identifying the right problem, sooner. Prairie States and Mayo Clinic have a long-standing relationship, and share similar goals in regards to health and wellbeing for their clients and patients. The Complex Care Program solves the problem of expensive, prolonged “wandering care” that those with serious medical issues often face. Every aspect of the care is carefully coordinated and a team of experts work together to provide exactly the care each patient needs. What might take months elsewhere is often done in days at Mayo Clinic, with considerable savings to the plan.
“Prairie States believes in providing the best care for all members, and in complex cases, that requires the highest level of expertise. In order to meet these needs, we have expanded our collaboration with Mayo Clinic to include the most advanced complex care program in the nation. This relationship allows us to continue to carry out our mission to positively impact the health of every person we work with while providing the highest quality benefits administration,” says Felicia Wilhelm, Founder and CEO of Prairie States.
Through this relationship, Prairie States is able to provide access to the entire Mayo Clinic team of experts, which coupled with innovative technology and research programs, delivers the expertise to effectively care for patients at significant savings.
