Cigna-HealthSpring Adds JenCare Senior Medical Center to Atlanta Network
Date:1/8/2019

Cigna-HealthSpring’s Medicare Advantage (MA) customers in or near Atlanta’s Brookhaven, East Point, Morrow, South DeKalb and West End communities have a new option for their medical care with the addition of JenCare Senior Medical Centers to their network, effective immediately.

JenCare operates five centers in Atlanta that provide access to primary care physicians and specialist doctors, including walk-in appointments, expanded hours, frequent and unrushed office visits, on-site medications, labs, X-ray, ultrasound, acupuncture and even door-to-door transportation to those who need it. These convenient JenCare centers are now available to customers in Cigna-HealthSpring’s Preferred (HMO), Premier (HMO-POS) and TotalCare (HMO SNP) plans.

JenCare adheres to the ChenMed approach to high-touch care for Medicare-eligible seniors, that, according to the September American Journal of Managed Care, reduces hospital admissions by 50 percent; decreases health care costs by 28 percent; and improves patient use of preventive medications by up to 41 percent (see AJMC release and abstract). The peer-reviewed journal report shows that JenCare helps MA customers, including those with major and multiple chronic conditions, enjoy more healthy days than MA customers served by standard medical practices.

“As a customer-centric organization, we continue to seek relationships with physician and hospital systems that improve customer access to high-quality care,” said Dr. David Coxe, senior medical director with Cigna-HealthSpring in Georgia. “JenCare’s approach to personalized care helps seniors receive the results-driven care they need, when they need it.”

JenCare Atlanta primary care physicians (PCPs) share their cell phone numbers with their patients. They encourage calls and texts anytime, and they welcome walk-in appointments.

“Thanks to the support of senior-focused carriers like Cigna-HealthSpring, our doctors are empowered to stay focused on delivering service, detecting and managing high-risk diseases, and on reducing hospital sick days,” said Jonathan Flacker, M.D., chief medical officer, JenCare Georgia.
