MAOs Enhance Kidney Care Offerings Across Disease Spectrum

An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that SCAN Health Plan’s VillageHealth Medicare Advantage Special Needs Plan is not affiliated with DaVita. The VillageHealth product is actually in partnership with DaVita.

As newly eligible patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) enter the Medicare Advantage market, insurers are partnering with kidney care providers to strengthen their kidney disease management capabilities across the spectrum of disease stages. Their efforts range from slowing disease progression to exploring appropriate care options for those with ESRD outside of dialysis.
