Datapoint: Elevance Will Provide Medicaid Members With Smartphones

Elevance Health is partnering with mobile carriers Verizon, Samsung, AT&T and T-Mobile to provide select Medicaid members with smartphones. The devices will include unlimited data, talk and texting services, and come preloaded with digital health care tools. “The lack of sufficient internet connectivity and technology access remains a significant barrier for many – increasing health inequities,” Kurt Small, President of Elevance Health’s Medicaid business, said in a statement. “This program aims to directly address this challenge and helps improve the health of the people we serve.” Elevance said the program will launch in multiple states later this year, though it did not disclose which states. Elevance is currently the second-largest managed Medicaid insurer in the U.S., behind Centene Corp., with 8,853,470 members.
