American Health Plans’ provider-owned managed care plans can help nursing home owners improve patient care while growing revenues.

We know — because we own nursing homes, too.

Who We Are

We’ve owned and operated Medicare Advantage plans since their inception. And our sister companies have been delivering post-acute care for over three decades.

What We Do

Through shared ownership in Medicare Advantage plans, we help nursing homes control their financial future in a challenging healthcare environment.

Your Opportunity

Sponsoring a health plan in your nursing home can increase patient services, improve health outcomes and generate a reliable, shared revenue stream.

Pioneers in Managed Care

American Health Plans manages institutional special needs plans (I-SNPs) in nursing homes in several states by sharing plan ownership with the facilities. Our roots in managed care run deep. We owned and managed a Medicare Advantage plan with over 100,000 members across multiple product lines. We currently own one of the oldest provider-owned I-SNPs in the country and are rapidly developing new partnerships with nursing home owners. Today, you can find our managed care plans in 124 nursing homes, and we are rapidly developing new partnerships with nursing home owners.

A Strategy for Challenging Times

Today’s residential nursing facilities are often expected to do more with less. Owners are constantly stretching their resources to serve residents who are sicker and need more hands-on care. In addition, your facility is often at the bottom of the healthcare reimbursement chain.

Let us help you ensure the highest quality of care with an institutional special needs plan (I-SNP). This type of Medicare Advantage plan is a natural fit for nursing homes and gives you more control over your future.

Better Patient Care, A Healthier Bottom Line

American Health Plans has broad experience in both managed care and nursing home ownership, so you can depend on us to market and administer your I-SNP successfully.

As a partner in a well-managed I-SNP, you are in the driver’s seat when it comes to healthcare spending for your members. You know your residents better than anyone. Together, we can leverage that expertise to deliver patient-centered care that’s also cost-effective.

Our collaborative partnership, which includes frequent visits by care managers and mid-level providers, provides members living at your facility with:

  • Better treatment plans, medication management and care continuity
  • Hands-on care transitions
  • Extra services like vision care, dental care and additional physical therapy
  • Increased member satisfaction with your facility

By providing these services, you can reduce emergency room visits and hospital admissions or readmissions, thus bolstering your bottom line.

At American Health Plans, our aim is twofold: To take great care of our members and to help our nursing home partners protect their organization’s bottom line. With our service partner, TruHealth, we bring in mid-level providers and case managers to work side-by-side with nursing home staff to coordinate care for our members. This model of care helps manage costs, improve wellness and prevent unnecessary hospitalization.
