Members of all Health Partners Medicare plans also have access to 24/7 support via Member Relations. Each member has access to community programming through HPP’s PartnerUp HealthCompass program that addresses Social Determinants of Health (SDoH) and identifies non-clinical barriers that impact the health of members.
“Health Partners Plans is deeply committed to meeting the needs of our members, and our new and improved Health Partners Medicare plans for 2021 reflect feedback we’ve received from the communities we serve,” said Health Partners Plans President and CEO Denise Napier. “Improved benefits include better access to transportation to doctors’ appointments and pharmacies, as well as an increased allowance to spend on over-the-counter health items. Our hope is that these generous new benefits will improve members’ daily lives and overall health outcomes.”
