Nurse Practitioners (NPs) and Care Managers (CMs) work with primary care physicians, facilities, social support service providers and families to provide intensive primary and preventive services to people who have long-term or advanced illness, are older or have disabilities. The model combines benefit design, the creation of a provider network, and clinical management programs.
The Evercare Care Model primarily serves adults with long-term conditions or disabilities. As a Medicare Advantage Special Needs Plan, Evercare serves Medicare beneficiaries in three categories.
- People living in a long-term care facility
- People with both Medicare and Medicaid (i.e. "dual eligibles")
- People with severe or disabling chronic conditions, like heart disease or diabetes, who live in the community (at home, with a family member, or in other settings like assisted living facilities or retirement communities).
In addition, Evercare works with Medicaid recipients with severe, chronic conditions and those needing long-term care.
Evercare is part of Ovations, a division of UnitedHealth Group dedicated to the health care needs of those over 50. UnitedHealth Group is a publicly-traded, for-profit health care company.
Evercare is a comprehensive care model for those who have long-term or advanced illness, are older, or have disabilities living in a variety of settings including their homes, nursing homes and long-term care facilities, or assisted living.
