Pentec Health Announces Expansion of Aetna Coverage to their Coventry Medicare Plan

Pentec Health, Inc., a leader in patient-specific sterile compounding, today announced that Aetna, one of the country's leading health plans, will expand coverage for their Renal Nutrition Services and their Intrathecal (IT) pump management program under its Coventry Medicare plan, reaching 5.3 million lives across the country. This new agreement also provides access to Pentec Health services for lives in over 10 new Aetna umbrella plans that were not part of their previous agreement. The new agreement will go into effect on July 1, 2019.

For renal dialysis patients, Pentec Health provides the nutritional support through Intradialytic Parenteral Nutrition (IDPN) and Intraperitoneal nutrition (IPN) when they are unable to meet protein and energy requirements with food and supplements alone. Patients with intrathecal pump therapy require individual attention and consistent observation to monitor for side effects of their medication. Pentec Health’s DrugPlus® programs allow patients to be seen in their preferred environment to manage their pain or spasticity, enabling treatment to be more efficient and worry-free.

"We look forward to working with Aetna and their Coventry Medicare Plan to provide their members with a new option for Renal Nutritional Services and IT pump management services. Many patients with an implanted pump for pain or spasticity require additional monitoring and management and our nursing team of over 130 highly trained nurses can help with the management," said Debbie Dennis, VP of Contracting at Pentec Health.

Pentec Health’s Proplete® IDPN or IPN nutritional solutions provide patient-specific therapy designed to replenish protein losses that occur during dialysis treatments. Our renal clinical team specializes in the management of malnutrition for end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients. With their intrathecal pump management program, Pentec Health offers patients individualized treatment, quality specialized compounded medication and expert care in a familiar setting. They partner with your practice and collaborate with physicians to develop a goal-oriented, customized plan of care each patient.
