Molina Healthcare of Texas Expands In-Home Program Through Community Partnership
HOUSTON, March 22, 2022 – Molina Healthcare of Texas (“Molina”) and MedArrive have partnered to offer an innovative program that provides in-home health care services to at-risk Molina members in the greater Houston area. The program is designed to improve the health and quality of life for Molina’s vulnerable and hard-to-reach members, including seniors, while also helping them navigate the complex health care system.
“Managing and navigating the intricacies of health care can be daunting, especially for underserved or elderly populations,” said Chris Coffey, plan president of Molina Healthcare of Texas. “Our partnership with MedArrive will better connect vulnerable members with the resources they need to improve their health outcomes while reducing visits to emergency rooms.”
The new mobile-integrated health care program connects pre-identified Molina Texas Medicaid members with MedArrive’s field provider network of highly trained, skilled paramedics, EMTs, and other health care professionals.
Field providers will deliver a mix of in-home health care services, diagnostics, health assessments, and other important preventive health measures. When higher-acuity care is needed, members will be connected with physician-led telemedicine services. Field providers and case management teams will also identify care gaps and help members address social needs including transportation, nutrition, behavioral health needs, and mobility challenges.
“We’re incredibly proud of the success our collaboration with Molina has produced during this pilot program, and we look forward to scaling it throughout Houston and beyond,” said Dan Trigub, co-founder and CEO of MedArrive.
“As a fire captain, I would only see patients on calls in their immediate crisis,” said Keith Bailey, a MedArrive field provider and former captain from the Houston Fire Department. “Now I am able to develop a relationship with Molina members and really work to help improve their health outcomes."
