Payer engagement for sustainable funding
Submitted by kchan on 28 May 2020 - 3:20pm
Have either programs had discussions with insurance payers (Medicaid or commercial) about funding services, either in part or whole? If so, what has that looked like, and have you been successful? Thank you!

We tried getting asthma van
We tried getting asthma van visits covered by insurance without a copay like a mammogram but were unsuccessful because that was considered self inducing patients to choose your program. We tried getting a donation to cover copays but that was also considered self inducing patients so we don't charge anyone and rely on grants and donations.

Prior to the pandemic we had
Prior to the pandemic we had an initial conversation with a commercial payer. However, have not circled back around since then.
