Caregiver Support: The unserved, critical need for health plans

Nearly 30% of adults in the US are caregivers for loved ones. Designing a Caregiver Support Benefit to address their needs can be a crucial strategy for health plans in attracting members and driving better outcomes.

A Hidden Force for Driving Outcomes

This creates great opportunity for health plans to provide needed assistance, earn trust and influence outcomes. For health plans and provider entities planning benefits and care models, particularly those considering CMS-approved supplemental benefits, this webinar provides:

  • Key insights into available and meaningful support
  • Best practices in caregiver identification and activation
  • Practical guidance for designing a differentiated benefit for Medicare, Commercial and Medicaid
  • First steps to ensure implementation excellence

Left unsupported family caregivers are largely stressed, burned out and uncertain whether the decisions they make are the best for them or their loved one. This strain creates medical risk in Medicare populations and lost productivity in commercial ones and it is putting pressure on health plan administrators and product leaders to develop programs that address the need. Carallel provides concrete opportunities to address their needs and, in turn, drive better outcomes.
