Senior Care Plus

 Southern Nevada’s New Medicare Advantage Plan

Senior Care Plus, the Medicare Advantage plan from Hometown Health, is amid its first open enrollment period since launching in Clark and Nye counties earlier this year. Doug Geinzer, CEO of Las Vegas HEALS, talks with CJ Bawden of Senior Care Plus for more on the plan, its care model, and what seniors can expect from southern Nevada’s Medicare landscape.

Doug Geinzer: CJ, this is the first open enrollment period for Senior Care Plus in southern Nevada, what can Medicare eligible residents expect from the plan?

CJ Bawden: With Senior Care Plus, Hometown Health is offering seniors in southern Nevada a 4.5-star Medicare Advantage plan, which is impressive since the highest rating a plan can achieve is five. New Senior Care Plus members can expect competitive benefit options, exceptional customer service, and experienced care management. Members will enjoy a variety of PPO health insurance plans with access to a wide range of health care providers, thanks to our partnership with P3 Nevada. Our entrance into the market is more than just another insurance offering, we’re expanding the very limited selection of Medicare Advantage plans, allowing seniors to have yet another choice when making important healthcare decisions.

Geinzer: Tell us more about your partnership with P3 Health Partners.

Bawden: As our provider network, P3 Nevada and Senior Care Plus will work together and focus on the provider and patient experience, increasing positive healthcare outcomes by delivering high-value care and benefits. P3’s community of experienced providers delivers excellent patient care at their physician-led clinics where they specialize in helping southern Nevada’s seniors remain healthy and active, which is the hallmark of Senior Care Plus and Hometown Health vision.

Geinzer: How about access to care? Will members have long waiting periods before they can see a doctor?

Bawden: The short answer is no. P3 currently has five clinics, with four more opening later this fall, all located conveniently around the valley and in Pahrump. Our members can see a physician when needed and with convenience. 

Not only will they have timely medical visits, our members will be supported before, during, and after doctor visits with a comprehensive team of care managers, dietitians, behavioral health specialists, and much more. Both Senior Care Plus and P3 Nevada support a 360-degree care model.

Geinzer: You mentioned before about a lack of health insurance choices. Tell us more about challenges that you see regarding Medicare in our market?

Bawden: I don’t like to look at it as “challenges,” but more as an opportunity. Yes, the market has experienced some disruption, with companies pulling their Medicare plans and leaving residents with limited choices. Fortunately, this provides us an opportunity to offer a highly-rated Medicare Advantage plan, backed by a stellar provider network, all supported by the oldest nonprofit health insurance company in Nevada.

Geinzer: Where can seniors find more information on Senior Care Plus?
