Comprehensive Care Corporation (CompCare) has announced the addition of 42,000 covered lives as part of its ongoing contract with L.A. Care, the nation's largest public health plan.
The announcement expands on the original contract CompCare secured with L.A. Care in early 2011 to manage behavioral health benefits for the plan's Healthy Families, Healthy Kids, and Medicare Advantage membership in the Los Angeles county area.
With L.A. Care's recent addition of members under the In-home Support Services (IHSS) Workers Health Care Program, the number of lives CompCare manages for the plan will more than double.
The IHSS Program enables individuals who are disabled, including children, to receive in-home care and seniors to remain safely in their own homes. CompCare will leverage its specialized programs, medical and behavioral health coordination, and intensive case management strategies to ensure members receive a comprehensive array of behavioral health services.
Clark A. Marcus, CompCare's Chairman and CEO, commented, "We applaud L.A. Care's success over the past year and are excited to continue as a partner in providing innovative approaches to improve and integrate care management. We remain dedicated to supporting and ensuring high-quality care for L.A. Care's Healthy Families, Healthy Kids, Medicare Advantage, and IHSS members."
