CLEVELAND and COLUMBUS, Ohio, April 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Mutual and WellBe Senior Medical announced today that they are launching a new home-based medical care program in both Cleveland and Columbus. This coverage expands WellBe's exclusive home-based medical care to thousands of patients in the state of Ohio. To start, WellBe's care will be available in the greater Cleveland-metro and Columbus-metro areas.
"Being able to provide a way for Medical Mutual members to access in-home care is an important step to help vulnerable patients facing serious illness take control of their health," shared Jeff Kang, MD, CEO, and Founder of WellBe Senior Medical. "WellBe's team-based approach to in-home medical care brings geriatric care to the patient, rather than the patient going to where care is delivered."
WellBe Senior Medical is a physician-led medical group that provides specialized care in the comfort and convenience of a person's home to individuals with multiple chronic conditions. Access to WellBe will increase the level of care available to Medical Mutual's members who are most at-risk for serious illness. Eligible members will benefit from receiving personalized medical care while also accessing important community resources.
"Medical Mutual is eager to extend WellBe's in-home care to our eligible Medicare Advantage members in Cleveland and Columbus," said Dr. Tere Koenig, Medical Mutual Executive Vice President and Chief Medical Officer. "Collaborating with WellBe Senior Medical allows for coordinated and collaborative care in the safety of the member's home at no additional cost to them. Additionally, WellBe's in-home care strengthens Medical Mutual's pursuit to bring high-quality care direct to our members to reach improved outcomes."
WellBe's team approach covers all aspects of a person's health. Delivering care through this multidisciplinary team addresses medical and behavioral health, as well as palliative care, directly to patients, wherever they are.
