We look forward to a continued collaboration in our shared commitment to enhancing lives and fostering well-being."

    Additionally, given the devastation caused by Hurricane Idalia in northern Florida this year, CCP also donated $10,000 in essential supplies (baby wipes, blankets, deodorant, toothpaste, sanitary pads, shampoo, body wash, skin cream, etc.) to those impacted by the storm.

    Community Care Plan and Papa Collaborate to Provide Social Support for At-Risk Medicaid Members

    Community Care Plan Aims to Close Gare Gaps and Improve Social Determinants
    of Health for Vulnerable Medicaid Members
    Community Care Plan Aims to Close Gare Gaps and Improve Social Determinants of Health for Vulnerable Medicaid Members

    Today, Community Care Plan announced its collaboration with Papa, a curated platform of companionship and support for older adults, families, and other vulnerable populations. Community Care Plan now provides its qualified Medicaid members with Papa’s services, including companionship and help with light house tasks, kids playtime or completing homework, technology education, transportation, and other general assistance needs.

    In support of its mission to promote healthier communities, Community Care Plan continues its focus to improve the social determinants of health (SDoH) for its community and members. This includes removing barriers that affect one's health and improving human connection. A 2018 study from the American Cancer Society, "found that lack of social connection may be associated with obesity, heart disease, and smoking" . By working with Papa, Community Care Plan provides its qualified Medicaid members with the social support services that they may be lacking. 
    Using the power of connectedness to improve health and close gaps in care, Papa’s on-demand workforce of compassionate Papa Pals will address the specific needs of Community Care Plan’s Medicaid members. Community Care Plan will provide Papa Pals to Medicaid members ages 12 to 17 who have not had a well visit in the last calendar year, members who are pregnant or have delivered in the last year, and members who are age 55 or older. 

    “To improve the health of our members, we want to help improve human connection and remove barriers that affect their everyday lives," said Miguel Venereo, MD, Chief Medical Officer at Community Care Plan. “Whether it’s to talk to someone, go along to doctor’s appointments, watch a mom’s kids at the doctor’s office so she can focus on her appointment, or give that mom a break and help make sure that the kids get their homework done, Papa Pals are there to provide our members with support."

    Papa Pals are trained companions who provide human help for critical day-to-day tasks. By serving as eyes and ears in the home, these trusted companions are able to understand the needs of members and to connect members to plan benefits or vital community resources.

    “Medicaid beneficiaries are too often overlooked in the healthcare system. It’s time we deliver the quality, compassionate, human care that these members deserve, which is especially critical for those who live with chronic conditions," said Andrew Parker, Papa founder and CEO. “Through our partnership with Community Care Plan, our Papa Pals can assess firsthand SDoH needs and help address the far too common barriers to health and vitality. Community Care Plan provides true whole person health, and we’re proud to join them in a collective mission to improve health outcomes for this population."

    Qualified Community Care Plan Medicaid members can get up to 60 hours of Papa Pal service over the year at no cost and can learn more at www.ccpcares.org/papa.  

    About Papa
    Papa is a new kind of care, built on human connection. Across the country, health plans and employers look to Papa to provide vital social support by pairing older adults and families with Papa Pals, trained and vetted companions, who provide a helping hand and an open ear, resulting in less loneliness and better health. Founded in 2017 and headquartered in Miami, Papa is backed by Canaan, Tiger Global Management, Comcast Ventures, SoftBank Vision Fund 2, TCG, Initialized Capital, and Seven Seven Six, among other revered institutional and individual investors. We envision a world where no one has to go it alone. Learn more at papa.com.

    Community Care Plan Works with Virta Health to Reduce the Growing Type 2 Diabetes Epidemic

    Community Care Plan announced a collaboration with diabetes reversal leader Virta Health. Virta’s virtual type 2 diabetes reversal treatment is now available to thousands of CCP’s eligible employees and adult Medicaid members.
    Community Care Plan announced a collaboration with diabetes reversal leader Virta Health. Virta’s virtual type 2 diabetes reversal treatment is now available to thousands of CCP’s eligible employees and adult Medicaid members.

    Florida has the 17th highest rate of type 2 diabetes in the country. Per the American Diabetes Association, nearly 12% of the adult population—almost 2 million Floridians—suffer from diabetes. Another nearly 6 million have prediabetes. Yet the burden is not shared equally; diabetes disproportionately affects lower-income adults including those covered by Medicaid plans like CCP.

    “Working with Virta is a major step toward reversing South Florida’s diabetes epidemic,” said Miguel Venereo, MD, Chief Medical Officer at Community Care Plan. “Though many digital health solutions aren't well-suited to Medicaid populations, Virta's personalized, high-touch treatment makes it easy for patients from any background to improve their metabolic health.”

    In Virta’s peer-reviewed clinical outcomes, the majority of completing patients achieved blood sugar below the diabetes threshold at one year, while removing or reducing the need for diabetes medications such as insulin. Patients also saw 12 percent weight loss and improved over 20 markers of cardiovascular health.
    Foundational to these results is a continuous remote care model. Via the Virta app, patients receive access to clinicians and health coaches who provide expert, individualized guidance on nutrition and behavioral change, monitor biomarkers, and de-prescribe medications as needed. This innovation is key for adherence and retention, even with lower-income and other hard-to-reach groups

    “While often ignored in the digital health ecosystem, Medicaid members are the exact patients we need to reach for any hope of reversing the global diabetes epidemic,” said Sami Inkinen, CEO and co-founder of Virta Health. “Community Care Plan is a leader in this space, and we look forward to working together to compound our efforts to reduce the burden of chronic disease in this population.”

    Today’s announcement offers hope to reverse the economic burden of diabetes as well, which costs
    $25B annually in Florida, including $248M through Medicaid alone. Virta practices a unique value-based care model and puts 100 percent of fees at risk. Under the arrangement, CCP only pays for successful health outcomes tied to diabetes reversal metrics.

    Virta is available to eligible CCP employees and Medicaid members (18 and older) at no cost.

    About Virta Health
    Virta Health helps people reverse type 2 diabetes and other chronic conditions. Current approaches manage disease progression through increased medication use and infrequent doctor visits. Virta reverses type 2 diabetes through innovations in technology, nutrition science, and continuous remote care from physicians and behavioral experts. In clinical studies, 94 percent of patients reduce or eliminate insulin use, and weight-loss exceeds FDA benchmarks by 150 percent. Virta works with the largest health plans, employers, and government organizations and puts 100 percent of its fees at risk based on clinical and financial outcomes.

    Community Care Plan has partnered with CareSignal, a Deviceless Remote Patient Monitoring™ company, to increase Medicaid members' access to care from the safety and convenience of home. Community Care Plan will use CareSignal's platform to send accessible text-messages that will empower members to self-manage chronic conditions, communicate symptoms in real time, and connect to Community Care Plan's Concierge Care Coordination team for additional support. 

    Community Care Plan, the highly-rated health plan owned by Broward Health and Memorial Healthcare System, has partnered with CareSignal, a Deviceless Remote Patient Monitoring™ company, to increase Medicaid members’ access to care from the safety and convenience of home. Community Care Plan will use CareSignal’s platform to send accessible text-messages that will empower members to self-manage chronic conditions, communicate symptoms in real time, and connect to Community Care Plan’s Concierge Care Coordination team for additional support.

    With members at home during COVID-19, the Deviceless Remote Monitoring program will enable timely identification of members who have immediate health needs. CareSignal’s automated Deviceless Remote Patient Monitoring program will also help CCP’s Concierge Care Coordination team scale to meet the increased need for remote care during the current pandemic and beyond.  

    “Community Care Plan strives every day to positively impact the health and wellness of those we serve,'' said Dr. Miguel Venereo, Chief Medical Officer, Community Care Plan. “Working with CareSignal to enhance member outreach and engagement through innovative communications will allow early identification and rapid intervention to prevent the deterioration of chronic conditions.  We anticipate that utilizing these enhancements will lead to reduced emergency department (ED) visits and admissions; therefore, improving the health outcomes and quality of life of our high-risk members.”

    Community Care Plan members who enroll in the program will be able to use their existing phones to increase self-management for three chronic conditions and be just a text away from CCP’s Concierge Care Coordination team at any time. CareSignal will enroll members through convenient text-messages and a self-enrollment portal, as well as personal phone calls and mailers, which will be available in both English and Spanish. The program will focus on three conditions:
    • Asthma
    • Diabetes
    • Hypertension
    Members will receive condition-specific questions and educational text messages or calls to their phones asking them to report symptoms and biometrics. To ensure equitable access, members can engage with the program using any phone, including landlines, and are not required to have a smartphone or WIFI to access the program. CCP’s Concierge Care Coordination team will provide support or route members to the appropriate site of service to improve their health.

    Blake Marggraff, CEO of CareSignal, said “Community Care Plan’s actions show their commitment to their mission and proactively supporting its Medicaid members with chronic conditions during the pandemic. By combining automated remote monitoring with thoughtfully designed care coordination and support services, I am confident that CareSignal and Community Care Plan will simultaneously do good and do well. In partnering, our companies have aligned to achieve the combined goals of improving HEDIS measures, reducing avoidable hospitalizations, and connecting the right support with members who have pressing needs, right away.”

     Community Care Plan served as a pickup location during the seventh annual Big Bus Toy Express held on Friday, December 11, 2020. Community Care Plan's employees donated toys and gifts for children every year but given how difficult of a year it has been for many families, the donations were even more generous this year.
    Text Box:

    Sunrise, FL – December 15, 2020 – Community Care Plan, the health plan with a heart, announced today that the organization and its employees donated 100 bikes and hundreds of toys to the Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program.

    Community Care Plan served as a pickup location during the seventh annual Big Bus Toy Express held on Friday, December 11, 2020. Community Care Plan’s employees donated toys and gifts for children every year but given how difficult of a year it has been for many families, the donations were even more generous this year. The donations included hundreds of items, including sports equipment, board games, craft kits, artwork sets, dolls, and much, much more! The organization also donated 100 bikes that ranged from tricycles to larger bikes and covered all ages.

    “Community isn’t just a word in our name, it truly represents who we are and what we care about,” said Jessica Lerner, Community Care Plan’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “With so many families in need this year, we wanted to do something big and this event provided us with the opportunity to do that. Since so many children have had to stay inside most of the year, in addition to the employee donations, we thought that gifting bikes as an organization would help get kids outside and stay active, while socially distancing.”

    In addition to Community Care Plan’s donations, members of the public were invited to drop off their gifts outside the Community Care Plan office. Children of various ages, adults, and seniors also brought donations. With these donations, Community Care Plan and its employees helped to fill the second moving truck that was used to pick up the toys and bikes. Community Care Plan’s donations were so plentiful that they were also loaded onto the Big Bus Toy Express!

    To expedite the check-in process, parents and guardians are encouraged to register their child at VaccinateBroward.com. To receive necessary vaccines, a parent or guardian must accompany all children under the age of 18 and bring the child’s immunization records and a valid form of identification.
