Pilot Program Targets SDOH Barriers for Members With MS

Recently, health insurers have begun focusing on social determinants of health (SDOH) and the role these factors play on health outcomes. Then the COVID-19 pandemic put even more of a spotlight on the issue, disproportionately affecting people of color and low-income communities. Recognizing the impact that SDOH can have, AllianceRx Walgreens Prime is partnering with Highmark Inc. to launch a pilot outreach program focused on the impact of SDOH on people with multiple sclerosis (MS).

According to the Healthy People 2030 initiative from HHS’s Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, SDOH “are the conditions in the environments where people are born, live, learn, work, play, worship, and age that affect a wide range of health, functioning, and quality-of-life outcomes and risks.” These include financial strain, transportation needs, food insecurity and housing instability.
