Medicaid-covered individuals often get limited care; AbsoluteCARE has taken the opposite approach. They place intense resources into primary care — one PCP and team to each 300 patients, whose prior year total costs usually exceeded $60,000. There are social workers, nutritionists and mental health practitioners on site along with an in-house pharmacy, laboratory and basic radiology, and a van to pick up and return patients for visits. The result is greatly improved health yet reduced total costs of care: In 2015, six months after enrollment, patients had a 42 percent decrease in hospital admissions and 39 percent drop in E.R. visits. Patients feel like they are getting real medical care, which they are.
