Who is eligible?
All SAG-AFTRA Health Plan participants with any of the 19 conditions are eligible to participate.
Is there an additional cost to the participants?
No. The program is provided by SAG-AFTRA Health Plan.
Why is this program offered for SAG-AFTRA Health Plan participants?
SAG-AFTRA Health Plan knows that improving quality and service leads to better outcomes. The 19 complex conditions that Accordant manages may make up a small percentage of your population, but they cost many times more than common, chronic conditions. Participants with these conditions have a higher hospital and Emergency Room rate and their conditions progress and become more expensive over time. Accordant’s services have been shown to be associated with better health of its members and lower costs and readmissions.
How are participants identified to participate in this program?
Participants are identified via claims data analysis and individual case management referrals. Once identified, eligible participants will receive introductory mailings and calls to enroll in the program.
Is participation in the program mandatory?
Participation is voluntary and members can opt out at any time. A variety of service options are available to meet the unique needs of all its members. Members continue in the program as long as they are eligible and participating with Accordant.
What can a member expect to receive if enrolled in the program?
What are the levels of participation? Members can choose their level of participation in the program. Interactive members are assigned a primary nurse who contacts them at least quarterly to complete a risk assessment and more frequently as needed. Self-directed members receive the same benefits as interactive members except they have opted not to have a nurse contact them on a regular basis.
