LOS ANGELES, June 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
- Enhancements to Data Feed will unlock full potential of OnTrak-A across all 8 states
- OnTrak-A enrollment already launched in six states; and preparing to launch in Massachusetts and Texas
- New data shows eligible lives under OnTrak-A are 50 percent greater than previously believed
Catasys, Inc. (NASDAQ: CATS) a provider of proprietary predictive analytics and integrated treatment solutions to health insurance plans, announced today that it is now receiving all of the member data expected from a leading national health insurance plan, which will allow the Company to fully ramp enrollment for OnTrak-A in the eight contracted states. OnTrak-A has already launched in six of the eight states, which will enable rapid utilization of the new data. OnTrak-A contracts currently cover commercial and Medicare members with Substance Use Disorders (SUD) in all states and Anxiety in certain states.
The previously announced data issues on the customer's end, which prevented Catasys from properly identifying members, have been resolved. The data feed from the customer had previously been operating at what Catasys believed to be approximately 5 to 10 percent of capacity. However, with the complete data now available, Catasys believes the eligible lives included in this customer's member population is approximately 50 percent higher than anticipated. Despite the limitations of this program over the last year, Catasys was still able to generate $8.5 million in total cash receipts for 2016. Obviously, this speaks well for the coming quarters and years.
The customer and Catasys have run a battery of tests over the past couple of weeks to confirm that the issue is resolved and the data feed is now operating correctly. OnTrak-A currently covers members in Illinois, Kansas, Missouri, New Jersey, Oklahoma and Pennsylvania, and is in the process of launching in Texas and Massachusetts. With approximately 23 million medical members in total across the U.S., this health insurance plan is currently one of the largest OnTrak customers.
"We are excited to put this customer's data issues behind us and start towards fully ramping enrollment for the OnTrak-A program. As one of our largest member populations to date, we believe there is significant revenue growth opportunity now that we have the needed data from the customer. We look forward to ramping the enrollment of this population to 20% of the eligible lives," said Rick Anderson, Catasys President and COO.
"Our relationship with this national health insurance plan remains strong and while working through their data challenges we have continued to build our relationship. Just a few months ago we announced expanding the OnTrak-A program into Texas and Massachusetts for commercial and Medicare members suffering from substance use disorders. We believe that moving past the data issues will allow us to expand the program into more states and our other behavioral health disorders, including anxiety and depression," continued Mr. Anderson.
Catasys' OnTrak program is designed to improve patient health while lowering costs to the insurer for underserved populations in which behavioral health conditions are exacerbating co-existing medical conditions. OnTrak has demonstrated effectiveness with a 50 percent reduction in health care costs for members enrolled in the program as well as reductions in hospital days, ambulance usage, emergency room visits and more thorough identification, engagement and treatment. Catasys currently operates programs in Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Jersey, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
