DALLAS, TEXAS, Aug. 24, 2022 – Molina Healthcare of Texas is delivering in-home health care services to at-risk members in Texas, working alongside community partners across the state.
With help from partners, including city EMS and fire departments, vulnerable and often underserved patients are guided through the complex health care system, allowing them to build confidence and take control of their health outcomes. Molina sponsors mobile health programs in San Antonio, McKinney, Plano, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, and El Paso. The programs have dramatically reduced non-emergency hospital visits and are cost-effective.
“The health care system can be intimidating, even for the most informed member,” said Chris Coffey, plan president for Molina Healthcare of Texas. “Molina’s innovative mobile integrated health program allows us to serve members in the comfort of their home to provide non-emergency assessments, vaccinations and more. This benefit is especially valuable for individuals with mobility or transportation concerns.”
Molina’s mobile health community partners include the McKinney Fire Department, MedArrive, MedStar, the Plano Fire Department, and the Southwest Texas Regional Advisory Council.
“Time and time again, we’ve seen the incredible impact our mobile health program has had on reaching vulnerable patients across our San Antonio community,” said Chris Velasquez, program manager for the San Antonio Fire Department’s Mobile Integrated Healthcare program. “Through our partnership with Molina, we’re able to reach even more patients in and around San Antonio and ensure that our community, especially historically underserved groups like elderly patients and low-income communities, have access to the care they need and feel empowered to make health decisions.”
