CMS has designed the Medical Loss Ratio (MLR) to encourage plans to improve their quality scores via Medicare rewards and incentives. In turn, rewards programs, which fall under the umbrella of quality improvement expenditures (QIE), require plans to invest in Medicare member engagement—and have opened the door to consumerism in health care.
What does this mean for your Medicare plan? To deliver both impactful business results in the short term, as well as position your plan for long-term strategic success, it’s vital to treat your members as consumers with choice. And, for many plans, the key to manifesting this attitude shift is simply to build intelligent consumer engagement strategies: leveraging Medicare rewards and incentives to deliver high-value activities among hard-to-reach, non-compliant members; increase quality scores; and boost retention and acquisition metrics.
At NovuHealth, we borrow engagement best practices from leading consumer loyalty programs and apply them to the challenging and complex health care ecosystem. Find more of our unique consumer engagement insights in the recorded webinar with NovuHealth EVP of Marketing and Engagement Jordan Mauer: “Intelligent Consumer Engagement to Drive Quality, Retention, Acquisition and Optimization with Medicare Members.” In it, plans will discover how to:
- Engage the right members to reduce costs and improve retention
