WellCare Kept PDP Enrollees Via ‘Conversational’ Outreach Pilot

A pilot with Drips’ trademarked “conversational texting” platform has helped WellCare significantly lower the percentage of Prescription Drug Plan policies that were being terminated due to nonpayment, according to a case study presented at the 13th Annual Medicare Market Innovations Forum, held May 11 and 12 in Phoenix.

Since WellCare was acquired by Centene Corp. in January 2020, the PDP team has been focused on “optimizing operational execution” and ensuring a positive member experience, said WellCare Senior Director of Prescription Drug Plans Talia Duany, who presented the case study with Drips. “When you’ve got 4.1 million members in an industry that’s shrinking — this year we saw the biggest [decline] in available PDP options, everyone’s moving into [Medicare Advantage] — having a robust member retention strategy” is critical.
