Digital Therapeutic Helps Kentucky WellCare Members With PTSD

Amid an ongoing mental health crisis that has seen a near 40% increase in patients grappling with mental health conditions since 2020, Centene Corp.’s WellCare of Kentucky launched a pilot program to address two conditions — panic attacks and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) — that are often overlooked.

Working with digital therapeutics company Freespira Inc., the pilot program takes an innovative approach to managing conditions at home with supportive technology and personalized coaching. AIS Health, a division of MMIT, connected with leaders of the two organizations, Timothy Houchin, M.D., a board-certified adult, child and forensic psychiatrist and senior medical director for WellCare Kentucky, and Joseph Perekupka, CEO of Freespira, to discuss the collaboration and learn about the early outcomes.
