Elderplan Assist (HMO IE-SNP)
Elderplan Assist makes it possible for you to continue living in your facility while also getting nursing home level care. A skilled Nurse Practitioner (NP) or Physician Assistant (PA), along with a dedicated Registered Nurse (RN) will work together to deliver the quality care you need to remain safely at home. They will coordinate with physicians to create a customized treatment plan, conduct preventive wellness-focused care, manage chronic conditions, order lab tests and write prescriptions. They will communicate any updates with you, your doctors and your family members, providing comfort and peace of mind. This added level of care can not only make it possible for you to remain in your home, but it also can help avoid unnecessary and stressful emergency room visits and hospitalizations.
