Anthem BlueCross and BlueShield Partners with Inclusa to Improve Care for Wisconsin Medicaid Members

The collaboration will provide a fully integrated Complex Care
Management model for Wisconsin Medicaid members who are Supplementary
Security Income (SSI) eligible.

MADISON, Wis.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Anthem BlueCross and BlueShield (Anthem) and Inclusa are collaborating
on a pilot program that will expand coordination services for Medicaid
members throughout Wisconsin. The program is designed to improve care
coordination, social services supports and better link members to
community resources.

“We believe this pilot program will positively impact Medicaid members
by enhancing our care management and social service coordination
capabilities,” said Leon Lamoreaux, Anthem BlueCross BlueShield plan
president. “By expanding our presence in rural parts of the state and
connecting with members at locations that are convenient for them, we
are confident that this pilot program will create a new standard of care
and social service coordination for Medicaid SSI members.”

As part of the pilot program, Anthem and Inclusa collaborate to meet
Medicaid SSI members in their regular environments including: in-home,
community-based organizations, treatment centers and other convenient
locations. Inclusa will focus on members in rural parts of the state
while Anthem will focus on members in Milwaukee and the surrounding
areas.

The pilot program will maximize access to health programs and improve
quality of life outcomes for members with SSI eligibility.

“A collaboration built from Anthem’s care delivery system and Inclusa’s
community-centered support structure offers a more holistic approach to
honoring individual needs. Simply, we are combining the strengths from
both organizations to develop a unique model of support throughout
Wisconsin in the communities we call home,” said Mark Hilliker, CEO of
Inclusa.

The pilot program will run through the remainder of 2017.
