Flexible Depression Management Program Employs Telephone Contact in Treatment

COLUMBIA, S.C., April 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Companion Benefit Alternatives, Inc. (CBA) was awarded Silver Honors for Health Plans and Health Networks by leading health care accreditation organization, URAC. The honor was announced at the 2009 Best Practices in Health Care Consumer Empowerment and Protection Awards Gala on April 1-2 in Orlando, Florida. The awards are designed to recognize innovative leadership and successful programs in consumer-focused health care management.

CBA was honored for its Essential Solutions for Depression Management Program, a flexible, disease management model that uses telephone outreach to support best practice management for depression. The program includes regular telephone contact between licensed clinical staff and the member, instead of relying solely on printed educational and support materials. With the member's permission, CBA disease managers will share their findings with the prescribing physician so the information can be integrated into the treatment plan.

"Depression is generally under-diagnosed and, even when recognized, is often not treated in accordance with clinical practice guidelines, costing employers $44 billion each year in lost productivity," said Dr. John Emerick, Medical Director for CBA. "Our program assists primary care physicians in improving diagnostic accuracy and patient adherence to treatment plans. Using this model has demonstrated decreased medical costs of 29% for those enrolled in the program."

Seventy submissions were evaluated by a 27-member panel o
