Managed Care

Managed care refers to a method of providing health care to people who have purchased health insurance from companies that use this method with the goals of reducing the cost of providing health benefits and improving the quality of care. Most managed care plans require that enrollees only seek health care from their approved providers that have met their standards for outcome and are within their contracted network.

Diversicare is a participating provider for many plans, including managed care plans. While the benefits and out of pocket cost will vary, many plans will cover at least a portion of the care provided for a skilled stay in nursing facilities.

Medicare replacement insurance or a Medicare Advantage Plan is a type of Medicare health plan offered by a private company that contracts with Medicare. Most of these plans would be considered a “managed care” type of health plan.

While Diversicare contracts with many of these plans, please call the facility directly to confirm they are a contracted provider.
