BMA Spotlight on Innovation: ChenMed & Patient- Centered Care for Medicare Advantage Patients
The Patient-Centered ChenMed Model
ChenMed is a physician-led, integrated care medical center that delivers high-quality health
care for seniors who are Medicare Advantage beneficiaries. The ChenMed model provides
patient-centered care by elevating primary care to increase access to services, enhance care
coordination, and address social determinants of health. The model leverages technology to
deliver care more efficiently, improve access to medication, and access to care in the home.
ChenMed, which has been a provider for seniors in Miami for decades, expanded its mission
in 2010. Today, the company remains focused on transforming care for the neediest
populations. ChenMed currently operates more than 40 practices in Florida, Georgia, Illinois,
Kentucky, Louisiana, and Virginia. About 30 percent of its patients are dually eligible for
Medicare and Medicaid, with monthly incomes below $1,025.
