PPHP’s IE-SNP is a type of Medicare Advantage Plan designed for patients who live  in an assisted living facility. These patients require a skilled nursing level of care but choose to live in a community setting.

Simply put, the IE-SNP is an all-inclusive plan that replaces traditional Medicare. It covers:

  • Inpatient care (Part A)
  • Outpatient and primary care (Part B)
  • Supplemental benefits including vision, dental, hearing, etc. (Part C)
  • Prescription drugs (Part D)

A focus on preventative care.

PPHP’s IE-SNP program includes a Nurse Practitioner and a Registered Nurse who work onsite to:

  • Improve outcomes
  • Prevent unnecessary hospitalizations
  • Reduce costs

These clinicians assess, diagnose, treat, and coordinate care before health problems become more serious. The clinicians also coordinate all aspects of care with the patient, family, hospital, and physicians, depending on the patient’s needs.

Here again, the IE-SNP is value-based, designed to mitigate illnesses and prevent unnecessary hospital stays.

The care team’s roles…

Nurse Practitioner:

  • Performs comprehensive health assessments
  • Is onsite and available 24/7
  • Coordinates care with the resident’s primary or facility-based practitioner across the care continuum
  • Provides early identification of acute episodes arising from chronic conditions
  • Helps educate and train facility staff in infection control and identifying various states of chronic diseases

Nurse Care Coordinator:

  • Helps minimize the impact of the nursing shortage
  • More timely treatment for residents and better coordination of appointments and surgeries
  • Facilitates any transition in care, such as hospitalizations

In short, the IE-SNP is better for residents.

Provide a higher standard of care. Residents won’t need to be hospitalized as often. Families and physicians will be kept up to date on residents’ care.
