Community enrollment totals nearly 70,000; and more than 30,000 nursing home patients are currently benefiting from Evercare.
Offerings include Special Needs Plans for those in nursing homes and for people with Medicare and Medicaid (Dual Eligibles) as well as Medicare Advantage plans for people with Medicare only living in the community; and integrated Medicare-Medicaid plans offered through states Medicaid programs.
