Aetna Brings Doctor ‘House Call’ Service to Metro Atlanta

Bottom of the article

As consumers drive transformational change in health care, Aetna is responding by making the health care experience easier through connected health systems, services and digital tools to help simplify care for members and their families.

The latest example is in Atlanta, where Aetna is offering members another simple, convenient, and local care option. Heal, the market leader in doctor house calls, has joined Aetna’s robust network of high-quality providers in the metro Atlanta area, including Gwinnett, Forsyth, Fulton, Cobb, DeKalb, and Clayton counties.

Effective immediately, Aetna Commercial members in Atlanta can schedule house calls with pediatricians, internists and family practice physicians for the same co-pay as a primary care doctor’s office visit. Between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., seven days a week, 365 days a year, a patient can be seen by a Heal doctor at their home, office, or location of choice within two hours with the touch of an app.

“We like the simplicity and convenience of this new service option for our Commercial members,” said Frank Ulibarri, Aetna’s market president in Georgia. “Our offering with Heal reflects Aetna’s commitment to creating a more accessible, simple and patient-centric health care experience.”

This is Heal’s second major market launch. The company has provided 100,000 house calls across California and the Washington, D.C. area in less than four years, reducing unnecessary Emergency Room and Urgent Care visits by up to 71 percent and generating more than $62 million in healthcare cost savings.

“We’re eager to work with Aetna in metro Atlanta to continue the success we’ve experienced in other markets,” said Nick Desai, co-founder and CEO at Heal. “Heal and Aetna share the same dedication and vision to transforming health care in our local communities, particularly for patients with the greatest need.”

Aetna Sponsors Third Annual Opioid Forum in DeKalb County

As national efforts continue to combat opioid use disorder (OUD), the Aetna Georgia Markets team is committed to supporting their local community.

These efforts were showcased in the third annual DeKalb County Opioid Summit – where the focus was on ways to help youth and families in the county overcome the challenges of OUD.

Aetna, a CVS Health company, sponsored the May 2 summit. The event highlighted the local impacts of this health issue and Aetna’s commitment to help at the local level. The event featured youth from local high schools, stakeho­­­­lders and community leaders.

This diverse group of stakeholders discussed the opioid epidemic from their perspective, bringing to light the negative aspects they see daily and the opportunities to improve the situation in DeKalb and for the state. Frank Ulibarri, Georgia and Gulf States market president, represented Aetna.

The local impacts of the crisis

In 2013, Antoinette Tuff found herself held hostage as a bookkeeper in a local school in Georgia but was able to disarm the gunman by talking him into surrendering to the police. After that experience, Tuff founded Kids on the Move for Success, which is an organization dedicated to helping children see the positive in life.

“No matter what it looks like today, it will be better tomorrow,” said Huff, who spoke at the summit. “Kids today face so much and are more likely to turn to drugs to feel better or to escape. This epidemic is not in some distant land, it’s in our front yards and we need to deal with it.”

For panelist Robin Elliot, working to solve the abuse of opioids is her life’s mission.

The death of Elliott’s son from a heroin overdose has made her become an advocate in Georgia. Elliott’s organization GA Overdose Prevention has dispensed over 1,000 Narcan kits across Georgia to help those who may experience an overdose. She’s also worked to pass a Georgia law that prohibits any legal action against someone who may have overdosed (from any substance).

Hyancinth Douglas, a juvenile probation supervisor and youth advocate, talked about how teenagers need to find positive support in their teachers, mentors and family members and reach out to them.

“Educate yourself about drugs,” said Douglas. “Try to determine what triggers you, and use your support system to help. There is no shame here.”

In a workshop hosted by CVS Health, two pharmacists outlined the real threat that opioids pose to the community and the entire country.

In a packed classroom, the pharmacists cautioned that adolescents are at an increased risk for addiction since their brains are still developing.

Ulibarri said he was proud to again be a part of this meaningful event.

“We are honored to once again collaborate on the third annual forum of this kind in DeKalb County,” said Ulibarri. “As a fellow Georgian, I’m proud of Aetna’s mission to help people on their path to better health – including the time and resources that have been dedicated to tackling the most-pressing issues facing the communities where we live and work. Working together with DeKalb County and other local stakeholders, we’re able to explore the impact of OUD on our youth and families and to discuss how to best combat it. It is ultimately on all of us to act.”

Aetna is committed to combatting OUD with a multifaceted strategy focused on preventing prescription opioid misuse and addiction, intervening in at-risk behavior, and supporting members with access to treatment for addiction. For more information on our efforts, click here. Similarly, CVS Health has made an enterprise-wide commitment to help address prescription opioid use disorder by designing programs to increase access to safe medication disposal, encourage appropriate utilization, educate patients and communities, expand access to life-saving overdose reversal agents, and support local recovery programs.

From California to Connecticut, Investing in Health at the Local Level

Bottom of the article

In Davidson, North Carolina, chronically ill community members will have increased access to essential services. In West Chester, Pennsylvania, more of the local uninsured population will be able to participate in a non-opioid pain management program.

Those city’s free health clinics, along with nearly 130 others from California to Connecticut, will be better able to meet their community’s health needs thanks to nearly $3 million in grants from CVS Health and its Foundation to the National Association of Free & Charitable Clinics (NAFC) and their members.

The grants furthers Aetna and CVS Health’s commitment to building healthier communities by investing in health at the local level, as these clinics will help better manage chronic disease, provide more wraparound services to address the social determinants of health, support treatment and prevention of substance abuse, including opioids and tobacco, and more.

Ranging from $10,000 – 20,000 each, the grants will be distributed to Free & Charitable Clinics in California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and Washington.

“Taking on these root causes of poor health will help us create lasting change towards health equity in America,” – Nicole Lamoureux, President & CEO of the NAFC.

The new funds bring the company and the CVS Health Foundation’s total contribution to NAFC to nearly $8 million since 2015.

Supporting Aetna and CVS Health’s combined goals of improving outcomes and lowering costs, more than 17,000 patients across the country had access to needed health care in 2018 as a result of last year’s NAFC grants funding. Two grantees alone saved their local hospitals $9.7 million by providing primary care to patients who would otherwise rely on the emergency room.

For more information on how the Free and Charitable Clinics will be utilizing their grants to improve community health, visit www.cvshealth.com/NAFC.

CVS Health announces significant expansion of HealthHUB to deliver a differentiated, consumer health experience

Bottom of the article

When CVS Health completed its acquisition of Aetna in November 2018, it set a bold course to transform the consumer health care experience in America. Today, the combined company is taking an accelerated step in its work by announcing a significant expansion of HealthHUB locations at CVS Pharmacy stores across the country.

Building on the success and customer response to its HealthHUB pilot in Houston, the company will open additional locations in Houston, Atlanta, Philadelphia, southern New Jersey and Tampa this year, and plans to have 1,500 HealthHUB locations operating by the end of 2021.

“Improving health outcomes starts with transforming the consumer health experience, connecting with people in their communities. Through physical and virtual interactions, we provide convenient, personalized and integrated access to health care support and services,” said Alan Lotvin, M.D., Chief Transformation Officer for CVS Health. “Our HealthHUBs in Houston are generating tremendously positive customer response. The opportunity to engage with a team of in-store and remote colleagues, including pharmacists, nurse practitioners, care managers and support staff resonates with consumers. We’re thrilled to be creating this seamless, long overdue experience that consumers want.”

For the past six months, the company has been piloting three HealthHUB locations in Houston that offer a broader range of health care services, new product categories, digital and on-demand health tools, trusted advice and personalized care. With the new format more than 20% of the store is now dedicated to health services, including new durable medical equipment (DME) and supplies and new product and service combinations for sleep apnea and diabetes care.

With personalized Pharmacy support programs and expanded MinuteClinic services, HealthHUB teams are improving care for patients managing chronic conditions, with a focus on recommending next best clinical actions and driving medical costs savings. The HealthHUB store format also includes a variety of pathways to nutritional health with one-on-one and group counseling delivered by an in-store dietitian, as well as access to weight loss programs.

Acting as the connection point inside the HealthHUB is the care concierge, a newly established role responsible for customer engagement, including educating customers about our new service offerings, helping them navigate the in-store services and events, and connecting them to our in-store providers.

“Our HealthHUBs are generating tremendously positive customer response. We’re thrilled to be creating this seamless, long overdue experience that consumers want.”

– Alan Lotvin, M.D., Chief Transformation Officer

The design of the HealthHUB also includes community spaces and digitally enabled offerings. Wellness rooms are available for CVS professionals and community partners to host group events, including health classes, nutritional seminars and benefits education. In addition, there are learning tables that include iPads for customers to explore health and wellness apps, as well as shop our expanded product selection on cvs.com. 

“Most of the time, I would run into the CVS Pharmacy when I was sick or just needed a few convenience items,” said Jacqueline H., a longtime CVS Pharmacy customer and Houston resident. “I was quite surprised with all of the health and wellness products, support services and community events inside the store. HealthHUB makes you want to be healthy and stay healthy.”

For Kevin Hourican, Executive Vice President, CVS Health and President of CVS Pharmacy, the HealthHUB format marks a forward leap in what’s already a revolution in health care.

“We have a sense of urgency about the need to bring real change to health care,” said Hourican. “What’s clear to us is that it will take more than incremental steps to fix what is broken in the health care system. That’s why we’re excited about how the combination of CVS and Aetna can establish an innovative health care model that will create an entirely new consumer experience and help people on their path to better health.”

Annual Project Health events at CVS Pharmacy locations help address access, affordability and quality care in underserved communities

Project Health has delivered more than $122 million worth of free health services since 2006

WOONSOCKET, Sept. 4, 2018 -- In its continuing commitment to improve access to affordable health care for all Americans, CVS Health [NYSE: CVS] is kicking off its annual Project Health campaign at select CVS Pharmacy locations in 11 communities across the country this Thursday, September 6, with free health and wellness screenings. A total of 528 Project Health events will take place locally over the next four months in multicultural communities with a large number of uninsured or underinsured Americans.

Project Health offers an array of free comprehensive health assessment screenings, including blood pressure, Body Mass Index (BMI), glucose and total cholesterol screenings, which can help detect risk for chronic conditions like diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease.

“Project Health is part of CVS Health's commitment to improving access to quality care by identifying health concerns and risk factors for participants who may not have otherwise sought preventative care," said Troyen A. Brennan, M.D., M.P.H., Chief Medical Officer, CVS Health. “Chronic conditions, which can often be life-threatening, can be treated very effectively when identified early at screenings such as Project Health, and can help to improve a patient’s health and well-being.”

Today, one in two Americans has at least one chronic illness with 85 percent of our health care dollars spent each year caring for patients with these diseases. According to a national survey by Morning Consult on behalf of CVS Health, 60 percent of respondents view costs as a barrier to being as healthy as they would like to be. “Preventative screenings also help to reduce costs for both the patient and the overall health care delivery system,” added Brennan.

Project Health events, which will be held on Thursday – Sunday in rotating stores across Atlanta, Boston/Rhode Island, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. from September 6 through December 16, are open to everyone and do not require an appointment.

Once screened, patients have access to on-site consultations with bilingual nurse practitioners or physician assistants who will analyze results and refer patients who require additional medical care and follow up to no-cost or low-cost medical facilities nearby or to their primary care physician.

Since it was established in 2006, Project Health has delivered more than $122 million in free health care services to more than 930,000 people across the country. For a full calendar of Project Health events, visit www.cvs.com/projecthealth (in Spanish: www.cvs.com/proyectosalud).

CVS Health Expands In-Store Safe Medication Disposal Program in Georgia

During a recent press conference at a CVS Pharmacy in Macon, Georgia, Division Vice President of CVS Pharmacy Brian Bosnic, Attorney General Chris Carr and State Senator John F. Kennedy announced plans to create drug-disposal collection points at 24 CVS Pharmacy stores in Georgia, and emphasized the importance of safely disposing unused or unwanted prescription medication in an effort to combat the opioid crisis.

“CVS Health is dedicated to addressing and preventing opioid abuse in the communities we serve here in Georgia and across the country,” Brian Bosnic said. “Expanding CVS Pharmacy’s in-store safe medication disposal program is one of the many initiatives we support to fulfill that commitment and our purpose of helping people on their path to better health.”

CVS Health recently announced a comprehensive, enterprise-wide approach to help fight the opioid abuse epidemic with even more tools to fight the growing opioid abuse epidemic. We created the Medication Disposal for Safer Communities program to prevent medications from being diverted from those with a legitimate prescription. Over the past two years, CVS Health has worked to expand access to naloxone, a lifesaving drug that blocks opioid receptor sites to reverse the effects of an overdose, without individual prescriptions in 47 states.

“We have to continue to forge innovative partnerships to strengthen our response to the opioid crisis, and CVS Health’s new initiative in Georgia is a great example of that type of collaboration,” Attorney General Carr said. “They want to make it easier than ever before to safely dispose of any unused, expired prescription drugs, getting them out of the hands of those who might otherwise abuse them.”

To find the nearest medication disposal unit, visit: https://nabp.pharmacy/initiatives/awarxe/drug-disposal-locator
