Health2047 spins out tech-enabled Medicare Advantage plan for underserved

Health2047 is launching Zing Health, a tech-enabled Medicare Advantage plan for those who are underserved by existing insurance plans.

Zing Health’s goal is to address the social determinants of health by delivering a wide array of services with little-to-no cost for members, an over-the-counter formulary and by offering patients access to care at novel sites such as federally qualified health centers.

Its Medicare Advantage plan can be personalized by each patient, Health 2047 said. Each Zing member will have access to a local field care team which can connect the individual to necessary services.

The field team will also embed itself at partner hospitals to coordinate timely procedures and appropriate discharge practices.

Zing will use data from health assessments and socioeconomic situations to lower health risks for members and provide physicians with resources to improve population health management.

It will focus its initial efforts in the Midwest.
