MMM launches campaign to mark 20 years as a leader in Medicare Advantage

 

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — July 14, 2020 — InnovaCare Health subsidiary MMM Healthcare (MMM) has launched a celebration across Puerto Rico to commemorate the health plan’s upcoming 20-year anniversary. Since its inception in 2000, MMM has managed the care for more than 720,000 Medicare beneficiaries, with a commitment to make a lasting difference in the health and wellbeing of the people the organization serves.

Under InnovaCare’s ownership and management since 2005, MMM has achieved extraordinary, industry-leading milestones, including:

  • Becoming the first and only health plan to receive a 4.5 out of 5-star rating from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), recognizing the consistency in the quality care MMM’s members receive.
  • Establishing the only health plan-run specialty clinics for members with chronic health conditions. Through the chain of Vita Care clinics, members with complex medical conditions and comorbidities such as asthma or COPD receive the care and treatment they need to take control of their health.
  • Offering exclusive services and dedicated units within Puerto Rican hospitals dedicated to their members. Through the Unidad Dorada program, members receive specialized care and services with a focus on an exceptional patient experience.

“This is much more than an anniversary. At MMM, we are celebrating because, in partnership with our employees and providers, we have taken care of the health of more than 720,000 Puerto Rican members during the past 20 years. As the first health plan on the Island, our unwavering innovation, consistency, and creativity have transformed the delivery of care. Today, we are the only plan with a 4.5-star rating, out of a total of 5, in the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services program. Therefore, the well-being and satisfaction of our members are the real proof of our team’s success,” said Orlando González, Esq., President of MMM.

Ranked among the Top 10 Medicare Advantage companies in the United States, InnovaCare has empowered MMM to build a proven, value-based model focused on patient engagement to achieve exceptional outcomes and exceed industry quality metrics.

“This is an incredibly exciting time for InnovaCare Health and MMM. Our commitment to continuously innovating and raising the bar for how quality healthcare is delivered remains strong. Time and time again, we have realized the value of highly coordinated care on the health of our members. As we look to the next 20 years, we aim to expand our geographic footprint so that people in other parts of the country can benefit from the innovation and commitment to quality that InnovaCare and its subsidiaries demonstrate every day,” said Richard Shinto, M.D., President and CEO of InnovaCare.

The campaign, “Estos Son Otros 20” (These Are Another 20), which launched in June and will run through 2021, will highlight the lasting impact MMM has had on employees, providers and members as well as the Medicare Advantage industry. MMM previously announced the launch of the campaign in a release on their website.
