AmeriHealth Caritas Minnesota

In 2020, the Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) is expected to release a request for proposal (RFP) to contract with managed care organizations (MCOs) under the Minnesota Health Care Programs (MHCP) to serve Medicaid members living in the seven metro counties: Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott, and Washington.

Our goal is to respond to the upcoming RFP and to be selected by the Minnesota DHS to deliver health care services to beneficiaries of the MHCP program.

To build toward that goal and meet health maintenance organization (HMO) licensure requirements in Minnesota, we are developing a network of hospital, physician, ancillary (including transportation), long-term services and supports, behavioral health care, and dental providers. We want to partner with dedicated providers like you.

Why join AmeriHealth Caritas?

For more than 35 years, we have led the nation in bringing care to those most in need through partnerships with providers like you. We offer:

  • Integrated health care management. We have a person-centered approach to care. Our comprehensive care management program includes an individualized plan of care that coordinates the delivery of physical and behavioral health services to help meet social and environmental support needs.
  • Disease management and healthy behaviors programs. We support your care for our members through programs that address physical health conditions such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and asthma. We encourage members to actively participate in improving and maintaining their health, and we reward them for practicing healthy behaviors. For instance, our maternity programs help expecting mothers get the care they need to deliver healthy babies.
  • Behavioral health resources and support. We recognize that physical health is just one part of wellness. That is why we integrate behavioral health services and administer them directly. We offer tools and training to help providers screen for behavioral health conditions, such as depression and substance use disorder. We design new programs to improve member health, tailored to the needs of the membership.
  • Partnership with the community. We are committed to partnering with providers to deliver the care members need. In addition to serving physical and behavioral health needs, we have helped members find food, housing, and employment. We collaborate with existing community organizations on programs and care plans to connect members with the help they need.
  • Local presence. We know that health care is personal. Our presence is local — with national support. Reinforced by our strong national infrastructure, we plan to staff our Minnesota health plan with local professionals who know the community because they already live and work there. Your Provider Network Management Account Executive will visit your office and know you by name.
  • E-solutions. We will support your practice with technology to simplify administration, from claims submission to patient health management. We are committed to working with you to care for members and improve health outcomes, and we will offer educational opportunities and frequent communication about top health care concerns.

Join us, and together we can improve the lives of MHCP enrollees.
