Medicaid Telehealth Partnership Provides Equipment Grants

Telehealth has become increasingly popular in the past year, but not all healthcare providers have the resources to manage telehealth platforms. That’s why Superior HealthPlan, Centene and the National Association of Community Health Centers formed the Medicaid Telehealth Partnership. As part of the initiative, Superior has awarded a total of $200,000 in grants to four Texas providers for purchasing new equipment, electronics and supplies to improve telehealth solutions.

These grants will help four health centers make an impact, especially in traditionally underserved communities:

  • Health Services of North Texas, Denton
  • St. Hope Foundation, Houston
  • Busy Bee Wellness Center, Houston
  • Lone Star Circle of Care, Georgetown

Funded projects have kept patients involved during the pandemic. And, the funding will allow providers to better serve patients in a variety of other ways. For example, one provider is using the grant to provide patients with care kits, while other providers are using the funding to cover the cost of remote monitoring, diabetes and blood pressure care to purchase vision equipment and to help upgrade internal systems.

“The past year has drawn attention to the importance of telehealth as communities struggled to conveniently access healthcare services due to COVID-19,” said Mark Sanders, president and CEO of Superior HealthPlan. “By providing these telehealth grants, we’re not only helping providers respond to the ongoing pandemic, we’re making a commitment to invest in the health of the communities we serve.”
