Aetna and Landmark Health Working Together to Bring in-Home Health Services to Medicare Advantage Members in New York
Collaboration addresses the ongoing health needs of Aetna Medicare Advantage members with chronic conditions
Aetna, a CVS Health company, and Landmark Health and its affiliated medical groups (Landmark) announced a new relationship to bring physician-led services into the homes of Aetna Medicare Advantage members living in New York with chronic health conditions. Service areas will be focused in the New York City boroughs and Long Island and further extend to Albany, Rochester, and Buffalo.
Members who are eligible for the program will receive access to health services in their homes. Examples of the types of care they can get are acute and urgent services such as wound care, lab draws, catheter maintenance and adherence to medication therapies, as well as medication management, home safety checks, and health screenings. The personalized services also include member access to 24/7 availability from a dedicated Landmark health care provider. Ongoing nutrition, medication therapy, emotional and mental health support will help ensure members receive a comprehensive continuum of care. As part of that care, in-home providers will also share data with members’ primary care physicians.

“This new approach identifies members with multiple chronic conditions and provides stronger in-home physician support in addition to their current primary care physician relationship,” said Lauren Casalveri, Aetna vice president and chief Medicare officer in New York. “This collaboration allows members to remain safely in their homes and provides optimal treatment for their conditions.”
“Landmark saw our first patient seven years ago in upstate New York,” said Michael Le, MD, Landmark co-founder and chief medical officer. “It’s tremendous to see that, with the Aetna relationship, nearly 40,000 New Yorkers who need advanced in-home geriatric care have access to it.”

The alliance reflects one of the key goals of value-based care, which is to drive better health outcomes at lower costs. Landmark has seen widespread demand for its home-based primary care services across the Medicare population. Since inception in 2014, Landmark Health has grown to 48 cities in 15 states. And it’s accountable for over 114,000 patients with chronic conditions.
“Access to care, especially for the aging population, is a critical need which has been amplified by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Casalveri. “These expanded services connect chronically ill members with enhanced solutions specific to their health needs.”
