Thanks to our terrific team at PointCare we’ve maintained a constant update of all Public, Private, State and Federal level programs nationally for 21 consistent quarters. We’ve decided to share our findings in acknowledgement of our team’s effort and to educate the masses on national changes to the health coverage landscape in recognition of this nearly impossible task.
PointCare is working overtime to keep your local programs up-to-date.
Why is this important?
Did you know public coverage is a moving target? No? Well it most certainly is. In fact, this is why it’s so complicated to keep patients enrolled in Medicaid coverage.
What do we keep up to date?
Everything. Eligibility rules change, websites change, contact numbers are always changing, links to resources...the list goes on and on. These changes make it very difficult to know with certainty how the program actually works and what is needed to enroll.
Without further ado, here’s a snapshot of changes made by your team at PointCare.
