agilon health board member and CEO of Central Ohio Primary Care Physicians (COPC), Willam Wulf, MD is one of the esteemed speakers featured in an upcoming CAPG webinar on MACRA (Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act). COPC, the largest independent and physician-owned primary care practice in the country and partner with agilon health in a new healthcare delivery model in Columbus, Ohio called COPC Senior Care Advantage, is navigating the complexity of MACRA by not only participating in CPC Plus, which is recognized by CMS as an Advanced Alternative Payment Model which qualifies COPC for the preferential APM track within MACRA, but they are also focusing on growing the number of their patients in Medicare Advantage plans, thereby reducing their exposure to changes in traditional Medicare reimbursement. COPC Senior Care Advantage provides COPC patients a compelling alternative to traditional Medicare coverage and is made possible by the innovative payer agreements agilon health and COPC executed with the leading insurance plans in the market.
COPC Senior Care Advantage is a new program for patients covered by the Medicare Advantage plans from Aetna, Anthem, Humana and MediGold in Central Ohio, which expands the cooperation and coordination between COPC and these insurance companies*. COPC Senior Care Advantage is not a new Medicare Advantage plan. Rather it is a new program that allows patients the flexibility to choose a health plan from four participating insurance companies and still have access to the same innovative care program COPC and agilon health have designed to enhance access to wellness and health education services, as well as care coordination resources. It provides patients the best of both worlds – flexibility in choosing their benefits from any one of the health plan partners and at the same time consistent access to this new program at COPC. COPC Senior Care Advantage will begin on January 1, 2018.
