Forty million Americans live with a mental illness. In addition, one in four Americans has multiple chronic conditions. These aren’t just statistics. They are real people who have moving stories. What many want most is to be known as a person, not a patient. To matter.
Our Government Relations team advocates for those we serve to help policy makers and others understand how Genoa Healthcare® and our partners help their most vulnerable constituents and their families.
What we stand for:
- We are dedicated to making sure that those with mental illness and addiction issues have adequate coverage, access to the medications they need and are treated with dignity and respect.
- We support community mental health centers as critical to the successful treatment for those living with mental illness and addiction.
- We support pharmacists being able to use their clinical knowledge to provide better health care for those living with mental illness and complex chronic health conditions, including practicing at the top of their license.
- We support value-based payment models that deliver the Triple Aim of improved health outcomes, reduced total cost of care and high consumer satisfaction.
