ATLANTA, Jan. 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — OncoHealth, the leading digital health company for navigating the physical, mental and financial complexities of cancer care, has announced a multi-year partnership with Triple-S Salud, an independent licensee of the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association and Puerto Rico's largest insurer. OncoHealth and Triple-S have been partners for over two years and today, the companies announced that they have expanded their partnership to include cancer treatment reviews for all lines of business, including 450,000 Puerto Rico Government Health Plan Vital Medicaid members. This expands the health plan's relationship with OncoHealth, which is already managing 100% of the Triple-S Medicare Advantage population and its Federal Employee Benefits (FEHB) program. The addition of the Medicaid membership brings the entire population being served by OncoHealth to more than 634,000.
In addition to the partnership on treatment reviews, Triple-S is now leveraging OncoHealth's cloud-based analytics software to better understand trends in cancer drug spending, areas for improvement in coverage policies, and for deeper insights into the Triple-S provider network.
"Working with OncoHealth is a collaboration that ensures our members are receiving guidance on the best cancer care options available while enabling our providers to have access to OncoHealth's leading cancer experts to ensure the best care for their patients," said Tammie Phillips, Senior Vice President, Clinical Operations and Strategy for Triple-S. "The oncologist-to-oncologist interactions performed by OncoHealth have driven increased adherence to evidence-based and standard of care treatments. The relationship also provides a consistency of cancer care across all of our FEHB, Medicare Advantage, and Medicaid members."
