What You Should Know:
– Papa, the popular “family on-demand” service for older adults, today announced the launch of Papa Health, a new virtual health platform aimed at improving health outcomes for the vulnerable aging population during the pandemic.
– The comprehensive health management platform will include virtual primary care, urgent care, and chronic care management – adding to its existing services that provide older adults with companionship and assistance with everyday tasks.
– The new service connects members with their Papa Doc virtually, while their Papa Pal is alongside the member and can help them navigate the appointment and provide transportation and care facilitation. Papa Pals are youthful, energetic, and caring companions who provide support and assistance to plan members.
– Papa services are available through health plan providers, including Aetna, AvMed, Florida Blue Medicare, Humana, Priority Health, and Regence Blue Shield, among many others.
