Elevance Health subsidiary myNEXUS, a home-based nursing management company, will expand its Indiana post-acute care program for Medicare members nationwide over the next six to 12 months, the company said July 20 during its second quarter earnings call.
Elevance purchased the Brentwood, Tenn.-based company in March 2021 for an undisclosed amount. It provides payers with automation services for home visit authorization and clinical support services to 1.7 million Medicare Advantage members across 20 states.
Elevance CEO Gail Boudreaux said in the earnings call the expansion will help optimize care post-inpatient discharge, provide a better patient and provider experience and grow Carelon, the company's recently launched healthcare services brand.
"One of the things we're trying to do is naturally extend our offerings and penetrate our business to a greater degree. And that's exactly what the supposed acute care offering is," Peter Haytaian, executive vice president at Elevance and president of Carelon, said. "We're taking the tools, technology and capabilities of myNEXUS, and we're utilizing that with a new offering to penetrate the Medicare business in a much more broad way."
