Managed Care Plans
Key objectives for Medicaid Managed Care Plans are to manage costs, utilization, and quality across their member population. Plans that partner with Providers who provide thorough incontinence assessments to determine appropriate product needs help get members in the correct product type, size, and absorbency, and quantity for their needs – while helping the plan control costs, utilization, quality.
According to a recent study on incontinence in a homecare setting, Prevail® products help manage costs and utilization, and improve member satisfaction and quality of life.
Costs: When patients use higher quality products, they experience better overall health outcomes.
New Prevail users experienced a 57% reduction in rashes and skin irritations, a 14% reduction in pressure injuries, and an 18% reduction in irritation caused by lingering wetness in the incontinence product.* Reductions in these health issues can lead to reduced ancillary medical costs to Managed Care Plans.
Utilization: When patients use higher quality products, they require less quantity and supplementary products.
New Prevail users reported a 24% reduction in daily product changes compared to their previous product. Additionally, new Prevail users saw a 33% reduction in the need to use underpads as a secondary absorbent adult incontinence product.* Reductions in these items can can lead to reduced overall costs in terms of number of products used – direct savings to the members' Managed Care Plan.
Quality: High quality products help improve member and caregiver satisfaction, and improve quality of life.
According to a recent study, patients and caregivers strongly prefer Prevail®, and had overwhelming intent to continue to use Prevail® after the study.*
For Health Plans to avoid ancillary medical costs, it is essential for HME Providers to properly assess the product needs of patients with incontinence, and to provide high quality, high performing products.
