Revere Health is part of the Medicare Next Generation Model Accountable Care Organization (ACO). An ACO is a group of doctors, hospitals, and other healthcare providers who agree to work together to keep you healthy. In fact, more than 25% of people with Original Medicare already go to doctors and hospitals that have joined an ACO.
Your Medicare benefits are not changing in any way. You may still go to any doctor, hospital, or other healthcare provider you choose. All members of Revere Health will work together to see that you get the right care at the right time. We will protect your medical records and privacy. We will work to reduce duplicate tests and duplicate paperwork. We will help everyone work smarter to give you better care. We will coordinate your care according to your medical needs and choices. Every provider at Revere Health is participating in this ACO.
Telehealth: Medicare lets Revere Health use telehealth for some services. Telehealth is a way to visit your doctor or certain specialists using technology, such as a computer or smart phone. If you are interested in telehealth, ask your doctor about it.
Nursing Homes: Medicare only covers care in a skilled nursing home if you stay in the hospital for at least three days before your admission. Medicare allows doctors who work with us to admit you to a nursing home any time you need skilled nursing care, even if you have not had a 3-day hospital stay. The nursing homes that work with us are listed here:
• Advanced Health Care Aspen Ridge of Utah Valley Skilled Nursing Facility
• Coral Desert Rehabilitation
If you call us, we will mail you this list.
Home Visits after Hospital Stays: Medicare lets Revere Health send nurses and other staff to your home up to nine times after you’re discharged from a hospital. They will help you follow the discharge plan your doctor writes.
An Annual Wellness Visit is a chance for you to discuss your health, your medicine, and your wellness plans with your doctor. An Annual Wellness Visit is not the same as a physical. It is a special visit that you have once a year to discuss your health goals with your doctor or their staff. Such visits have been shown to improve health care for beneficiaries, which is why you will be rewarded for receiving an Annual Wellness Visit.
If you get your Annual Wellness Visit from a doctor or healthcare provider who works with Revere Health, The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the agency that runs Medicare, will send you a $25 reward. You are still free to use any doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare. If you choose to receive an Annual Wellness Visit from a Medicare provider that does not belong to Revere Health, you will not receive the $25 reward but the visit will still be covered by Medicare. You are eligible for the $25 Coordinated Care Reward once per year.
The check will go to the address you have listed with the Social Security Administration. Please make sure that Social Security has your current mailing address by checking your profile on their website, https://www.ssa.gov/myaccount/, by visiting your local office, or by calling 1-800-772-1213.
