AtlantiCare Enhanced Care Center (DSRIP)

A new approach to managing complex medical conditions for patients with Diabetes and Hypertension who have Medicaid, Charity Care or Medicare/Medicaid.

The Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) Program is one component of the New Jersey's Comprehensive Medicaid Waiver as approved by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). DSRIP is a demonstration program designed to result in better care for individuals (including access to care, quality of care, health outcomes), better health for the population, and lower costs by transitioning hospital funding to a model where payment is contingent on achieving health improvement goals.

If you have a complicated medical condition, such as diabetes, congestive heart failure, cardiovascular disease, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, you know how difficult it is to manage and coordinate all of the providers.

The highly specialized staff at the AtlantiCare Enhanced Care Center is ready to help improve your health, simplify your life, and reduce your out-of-pocket medical expenses.

What's Different about Receiving Care at the Enhanced Care Center?

  • At the ECC you will be at the center of a team working together to coordinate and manage your care.
  • Your personal health coach will be by your side every step of the way, and will also keep the care team informed of your care plan and progress.
  • The ECC features a convenient on-site pharmacy where you can fill your prescriptions right after your appointment.
  • And as a member of the ECC, your physician co-pays will be waived and most of your medications will be completely free.

Call today to see if you qualify to participate in the AtlantiCare Enhanced Care Center.

Lung CT Screening

lung-screening-header

NEW LUNG CANCER SCREENING GUIDELINES

If all of these apply to you, contact us to schedule a low-dose CT screening:

check-box You're between ages 55 and 77
check-box You don't have signs or symptoms of lung cancer
check-box You've smoked at least a pack of cigarettes a day for 30 years or at least two packs a day for 15 years
check-box You currently smoke or you quit within the past 15 years.

 


AtlantiCare offers the full spectrum of care from a multidisciplinary team of leading specialists:

  • Radiologists
  • Pathologists
  • Pulmonologists
  • Thoracic surgeons
  • Oncologists

It’s been proven that an early lung cancer diagnosis can give patients a better chance for successful treatment. And the most effective way to get there is through a screening.

It’s important for you to know that Medicare and a majority of all private insurers now cover low-dose CT scans for people considered high risk for lung cancer. This is vital because our low-dose CT scan enables physicians to pinpoint lung cancer early.

The importance of a Lung CT Screening

As you may know, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in the US. So it’s important to know the results of a National Lung Screening Trial found the low-dose screening (as opposed to chest x-rays) reduced lung cancer deaths among older heavy smokers by 20%. Additionally, screening at an early stage is critical because 90% of people with lung cancer die, in part because it’s found at an advanced stage.

If our specialists do find lung cancer, AtlantiCare is there for you every step of the way. We coordinate everything from evaluation and diagnosis to treatment, imaging studies, clinical trials, support and more.

To have a screening done, you’ll need a prescription from your physician, so please call your provider to request one.

What is Mission Healthcare?

  • Staffed with highly qualified, caring professionals
  • Quality care provided regardless of insurance coverage or ability to pay
  • AtlantiCare Mission Health Care is an FTCA Deemed facility.

mhc-prescriptionSeven percent of the residents in Atlantic County are homeless (no permanent address), and more than 60 percent of these people have no form of healthcare.

Homeless individuals on average have not seen a medical professional in 7-10 years, and more than 40 percent have 6-8 conditions needing medical attention. Based on these startling statistics, and in accordance with our vision to build healthy communities, AtlantiCare opened Mission HealthCare in 2003 to provide primary healthcare to the homeless population in Atlantic County.

We treat all patients, regardless of their insurance coverage or ability to pay. Now, in addition to primary care, the Mission HealthCare program offers

  • substance abuse management and detox;
  • mental health services;
  • care for diabetes, asthma and cardiovascular disease;
  • case management;
  • transportation to medical services;
  • referrals for specialty care; and
  • prescription assistance.

AtlantiCare’s Mission HealthCare program is primarily located in Atlantic City’s Rescue Mission, the largest homeless shelter in the southern New Jersey region. Our patients include residents of the Mission and also many other uninsured individuals who do not have permanent homes.

Not only does Mission HealthCare provide much needed medical care to an underserved population, it also helps ease the burden on local emergency departments, which is where many of these patients end up when their conditions are not managed. Mission HealthCare is pleased to reach out to the homeless community in many ways, including visits to Sister Jean’s Kitchen and local jails. We also host an annual barbecue and vigil for the homeless.

Consumer Advisory Board

Mission HealthCare is pleased to have an advisory board made up of current and past patients, community members, and representatives from local social service agencies. This group meets monthly to advise the Mission HealthCare staff about issues related to the homeless population, provide recommendations for program improvement, and to refer potential patients.

AtlantiCare Mission HealthCare is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC). FQHCs include all organizations receiving grants under section 330 of the Public Health Service Act. FQHCs qualify for enhanced reimbursement from Medicare and Medicaid, as well as other benefi ts. FQHCs must serve an underserved area or population, offer a sliding fee scale, provide comprehensive services, have an ongoing quality assurance program, and have a governing board of directors.
