Care to Care, Continues as an ACAP Preferred Vendor to ACAP Member Plans for Next-Generation Radiology Benefits Management
NEW YORK, NY, – The Association of Community Affiliated Plans (ACAP) and Care to Care LLC (Care to Care) are pleased to announce they will continue the innovative new group-purchasing program established in 2012 that would enable ACAP member plans to customize their own radiology benefits management (RBM) solutions, while leveraging their collective purchasing power.
In collaboration with ACAP, Care to Care developed a program that would enable each of the 59 ACAP plans to design their own best-practice solutions from a menu of standard components that address specific clinical management and cost savings objectives.
“ACAP was created to help mission-driven health plans share best practices and support the clinical care they provide to the nation’s medically underserved populations,” said ACAP CEO Margaret Murray. “Because our plans are spread across the nation and compete with much larger health plans, providing group-purchasing programs to leverage their collective purchasing power has consistently been part of our vision. Working with innovative partners such as Care to Care has helped to make this a reality.”
“Care to Care is pleased to continue partnering with ACAP,” said Carol A. Folkman, Vice President of Client Services and Provider Relations for Care to Care. “Our company – led by Chief Operating Officer Barbara Kelman, a seasoned Medicaid and Medicare managed care executive, and Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Michael Komarow, who has served more than one million Medicaid beneficiaries throughout his career – is proud to be able to offer ACAP and its members the level of experience that will support ACAP in achieving its mission goals.
ACAP represents 59 nonprofit Safety Net Health Plans in 25 states, which collectively serves more than ten million enrollees, representing more than 50 percent of individuals enrolled in Medicaid focuses health plans. For more information, visit: www.communityplans.net.
