LEON, IA (June 1, 2023) – Through a partnership with Amerigroup Iowa, IowaHealth+ has earned over $3 million in shared savings for providing quality healthcare services to Iowa’s Medicaid population during 2021. Infinity Health is a member of IowaHealth+ and earned a share of these savings to reinvest in patient care.
Infinity Health is a member of IowaHealth+, a clinically integrated network owned and managed by 11 community health centers in Iowa and the Iowa Primary Care Association. The organization is dedicated to advancing the concepts of value-based care, while furthering and reinvesting in the unique mission of community health centers.
Since 2016, IowaHealth+ and Amerigroup Iowa have partnered together to serve Medicaid members in Iowa to improve access to high quality healthcare services and reduce the overall cost of care. IowaHealth+ and Amerigroup have focused on building a system of care to ensure the health of patients and communities today is sustainable into the future. Through this value-based care partnership, patients of community health centers receive high quality, coordinated care at a lower overall cost to the State of Iowa.
“Working together as a network across the state of Iowa, we are building our capacity as a primary care-led system of care focused on taking care of all in our communities – ensuring access to services, improving patient outcomes, and lowering per capita healthcare costs,” said Aaron Todd, CEO of IowaHealth+. “Amerigroup Iowa has been a strong partner as we tackle challenges – including a global pandemic – and deliver results in pursuit of our vision of health equity for all.”
“Through this collaboration, Amerigroup Iowa continues to support our community health centers through their commitment to providing quality, affordable healthcare solutions to improve and enhance community health,” said Jeffrey Jones, President, Amerigroup Iowa. “We share a common mission in developing innovative approaches to ensure high quality care is delivered in a cost-effective manner.
