We have validated, durable medical claims savings and ROI outcomes across all lines of business, including Medicare, Medicaid, and commercial health plan members. Additionally, there is more to our program than just medical claims savings. Once activated, our members increase preventive and managed care utilization, closing gaps in care. Through evidence-based care coaching, we take inactive members and turn them into self-sustaining individuals.
There are tremendous gaps in care for individuals with behavioral health conditions. These behavioral health issues, including depression, anxiety, and substance use disorder, are major drivers of cost to the US healthcare system. They can double and even triple the total cost of care, largely driven by Emergency Department (ED) and in-hospital visits. And while high-cost groups with unaddressed behavioral health conditions and chronic disease comorbidities only make up about 6% of the population, they account for 44% of total healthcare costs.
The Treatment Effect Study demonstrates that Ontrak Health’s behavioral health interventions work over the long-term, resulting in better outcomes for members and significant cost-savings for payers, and should be integrated as a critical component of healthcare plans.
