Features and benefits

Text

Optum partners with health plans to bring specialized benefits and clinical support to residents in long-term care — coordinating primary care, skilled care and specialty services for members of participating Institutional Special Needs Plans (ISNPs). 

The Optum care model places an advanced practice clinician (APC), typically a nurse practitioner or physician’s assistant, at the center of the multidisciplinary care team. 

The APC collaborates with the member, primary care physician (PCP), family and other stakeholders to develop a care plan that delivers proactive, preventive care on site.

Collaboration to drive long-term care forward


"I have nurse practitioners within my practice group, but they can't maintain a small caseload. The money isn't there. With the Optum care model, I have the Optum nurse practitioner and that takes the pressure off my staff and me.
"

– Randolph Clark, MD
