As of January, Commonwealth Care Alliance (CCA) is now serving more than 20,000 members, highlighting the growing demand for the organization’s innovative approach to caring for individuals who are dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid in the One Care and Senior Care Options (SCO) programs. This membership level achievement follows close behind news that CCA’s One Care plan was the highest rated Medicare-Medicaid Plan in the nation in 2016.
“This important milestone highlights our growing impact as a safety net for more and more of the most vulnerable individuals in Massachusetts,” said Chris Palmieri, president and chief executive officer of CCA. “This is a testament to the efforts of our tremendous staff, who work every day on new ways to provide the highest quality care to our members at the right time and in the right setting, while reducing the cost to the health care system.”
CCA members have a wide range of complex health issues, including chronic medical problems, intellectual or developmental disabilities, mental illness or a history of substance abuse. CCA’s innovative, integrated approach to care has been proven to enable individuals with complex needs to live as independent and as full lives as possible, while reducing costs to the health care system.
