Las personas elegibles pueden ahora inscribirse en el plan Medicare Advantage de 4 estrellas del norte de Nevada con acceso privilegiado a la red de atención médica más preferida de la región*.

Nevada tiene la suerte de ser la sede de uno de los más de 100 planes de seguro de salud de propiedad de proveedores en todos los Estados Unidos. Together, they cover more than 26 million enrollees, or about 8% of the population (2017). Kaiser Permanente is the most well-known nationally, but there are many other regional plans, including not-for-profit, Hometown Health based in Reno, NV. 

Today's dynamic health care marketplace has created an environment in which some hospitals and health care systems are operating a health plan - either on their own or in partnership - as part of their strategy to advance health in their communities.

Beginning Thursday, Oct. 15, area Medicare recipients will have the opportunity to enroll in locally-owned Senior Care Plus, a 4-star Medicare Advantage Plan from Hometown Health. Senior Care Plus está disponible para los beneficiarios elegibles que residen en Carson City y el condado de Washoe durante el Período Anual de Elecciones 2021, que se llevará a cabo desde el jueves, 15 de octubre hasta el lunes, 7 de diciembre.

“Los expertos en políticas de salud celebran los beneficios de las compañías aseguradoras que son propiedad de los proveedores. As insurers, we have incentives to control costs and improve the health of the community we serve,” said Tony Slonim, MD, DrPH, president and CEO of Renown Health. “As an integrated provider network, we are able to work with physicians and providers, increase value by improving outcomes and better managing the total cost of care for patients.” 

Senior Care Plus members have access to the locally-owned and governed integrated care network, Renown Health. Esta red es la red de atención médica más preferida de la región y ofrece atención primaria, especializada y servicios hospitalarios y de urgencias en todo el norte de Nevada. En el ranking de mejores hospitales de U.S. News and World Report, el Renown South Meadows Medical Center ocupa el primer puesto en el estado de Nevada. Renown Regional Medical Center fue nombrado en el puesto n.º 2 de los mejores hospitales en Nevada. Los hospitales calificados como sobresalientes eran significativamente mejores que el promedio nacional.

“We are proud to offer Hometown Health and Senior Care Plus members specialized resources, tools and services created to help them thrive,” said David Hansen, CEO of Hometown Health. “Working closely alongside the team at Renown Health, we continuously look for new and innovative ways to enhance the health and well-being of our community.” 

“At Senior Care Plus, we are proud to be your partners in health,” said CJ Bawden, director of government programs at Hometown Health. “Nuestros miembros disfrutan de una atención médica de primera calidad a un precio inigualable, junto con un servicio local de primera clase por parte de nuestro equipo de especialistas en atención al cliente amable y bien informado. It truly is an honor to serve our members and their health as they set out to live their best lives.” 


Affordable Care, When and Where You Need It

According to the Medicare Plan Finder, of the 22 Medicare Advantage plans available in Washoe County, Senior Care Plus plans occupy the top two spots when ranked by plans offering the lowest drug and premium costs.

In addition to high-quality and affordable in-person care, members can take advantage of urgent care and medical services delivered in the comfort of their homes thanks to a partnership with Dispatch Health. Furthermore, members have convenient access to Renown care providers through virtual visits, along with Teladoc services available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 


Senior Care Plus Benefits

Senior Care Plus offers a wide range of plans, many of which have no monthly premiums. Las opciones de planes también ofrecen beneficios complementarios no cubiertos por Original Medicare, como la cobertura de servicios dentales, oftalmológicos y para el cuidado de la audición, así como visitas al quiropráctico por $20, cobertura de la diferencia de los medicamentos recetados sin costo y membresías gratuitas en gimnasios.

“Beginning, Wed., Oct. 14, the newest Renown Medical Group location at 1525 Los Altos Pkwy, Reno, NV, opens to provide care to primary care, lab services to patients of all ages, and will debut the first Senior Care Lounge featuring beautiful spaces to better serve members of Hometown Health’s Medicare Advantage Plan,” said Ty Windfeldt, chief operations officer for health services. “We are excited for the community to see this gorgeous space, filled with natural light, healing colors and images, as well as state-of-the-art clinical equipment. 

Furthermore, members with a Renown-based primary care provider have access to a personal assistant who can help with appointment scheduling and healthcare screening coordination, medication coordination, health insurance and billing questions, and more.
