The Meritain Health Comprehensive Kidney Care Management program identifies pre-dialysis members and directs them into this valuable program for much-needed medical intervention. Early detection and placement into a treatment program can result in 61 percent average savings to employers.
Claims review is used to locate members with kidney disease, analyzing claims data against a broad database of more than 275 diagnoses and 90,000 cases. A comprehensive team of medical professionals works closely with the member and their physician to target the member’s specific needs. With the goal of slowing or even reversing chronic kidney disease, the team assures an appropriate treatment regimen is followed, providing outreach and education along the way. Each day a member can be kept off dialysis can translate not only to a member’s overall well-being, but also to real cost savings.
