Passport Health Plan Continued to Help Kentuckians Live Healthier Lives in 2016

Passport logoIt was a busy and very productive year for Passport Health Plan, as the nonprofit, community-based managed care organization (MCO) has seen extensive growth in membership and continued to help all Kentuckians live healthier lives.

Some highlights during the year include:

  • Passport and Evolent Health announced the formation of a strategic alliance that created The Medicaid Center of Excellence (MCOE), which combines Passport’s expertise in Medicaid managed care with Evolent’s industry-leading technology and operations to offer centralized services for provider-led Medicaid health plans nationwide.
  • Passport was once again named the top Medicaid plan in Kentucky, rated a 4 out of 5 by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) for the second straight year, according to “NCQA’s Medicaid Health Insurance Plan Ratings 2016-2017.”
  • Passport received the highest number of five-star “excellent” ratings as tallied by the Kentucky Department for Medicaid Services (DMS) in their “2017 Guide to Choosing a Medicaid Health Plan,” which compared the five Managed Care Organizations (MCOs) that serve Kentucky Medicaid members.
  • Passport became a statewide sponsor of the American Diabetes Association (ADA) to raise awareness about healthy nutrition, exercise and other steps Kentuckians can take to avoid the onset of diabetes, which affects close to 600,000 Kentuckians affected by diabetes and over 1.1 million at risk for diabetes.
