A new health care option for Medicare recipients is coming to Florida beginning in January. According to a recent article in the Jacksonville Business Journal, Florida Blue is teaming with Alignment health care to open various clinics in and around the Jacksonville area.
The news of these comprehensive clinics is big for Medicare recipients that suffer from chronic conditions and have a Medicare Advantage Plan. The idea behind these clinics is to offer patients a coordinated and closely integrated care option different from typical health care.
The clinics will offer a one-stop-shop for patients with exam rooms and laboratories on site; many of the services patients with chronic ailments such as congestive heart failure or diabetes need will be available. BlueMedicare Preferred is calling their health care the future of all health care. With state-of-the-art technology and even wireless 'take-home' options for patients, seniors will receive an experience at the BlueMedicare Preferred clinics that are second to none.
These BlueMedicare clinics are exclusively for FloridaBlue's Medicare Advantage Plan enrollees. Patients that are enrolled in these plans or otherwise eligible for their services will enjoy all that health care has to offer including on-site social workers, mental health care professionals and case workers. The all-inclusive clinics work with Jacksonville areas health care providers and hospitals to offer their patients a comprehensive program for all their health care needs.
These state-of-the-art clinic facilities are for BlueMedicare Preferred Advantage Plan members only. Making changes to your Medicare or Medicaid plan may be tricky and may require the help and knowledge of a skilled elder law attorney. With their help, changes can be made to Medicare and Medicaid plans that will keep assets and estates protected while giving seniors the best, new health care available.
