Effective October 1, 2021, WellCare of Illinois will partner with Somatus Inc., to establish a care management program for members with end-stage renal disease and chronic kidney disease. Some of your patients may qualify for this program.
Patient benefits include:
- Care management of kidney disease and comorbidities
- Instructions to better understand the condition, treatment options and diet
- Help to transition from hospital to home
- Guidance in transplant options
Social workers can help with transportation, food or other issues that limit the member’s compliance with treatment.
We will be in touch with you about your eligible patients. If you have any questions before we contact you, please call us at 1-855-851-8354 Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Time.
