A Proven Leader in Coordinated Care
Evercare measures success by the quality of care delivered to its 100,000 enrollees. The largest business of its kind, Evercare has been internationally recognized for its innovation and success in improving enrollees health and managing care costs.
Evercare served as a key precedent for the Special Needs Plans (SNP) created under the Medicare Modernization Act of 2003. A leader in the field, Evercare has more SNPs than any other health plan provider. Evercare has contracted with more than 1,000 nursing facilities and is a major employer of nurse practitioners and nurse care managers.
As the baby boomer generation ages, Evercare is poised for still greater achievement, both by helping improve care for more people in states we currently serve and by expanding to new states, said Dr. Mach. There also are near-term avenues of growth as the integration of UnitedHealth Group and PacifiCare Health Systems continues and our parent company grows and evolves to serve a changing marketplace even better.
