Specialty Programs

USMM offers multiple home-based programs designed to improve quality of care, promote coordination of resources, reduce medical expenditures, and increase patient satisfaction. 

USMM offers payers including Medicare, Medicaid and Commercial insurers a reimbursement model that emphasizes fee-for-value, rather than fee-for-service, focusing on care coordination and accountability.

Our solutions empower health care organizations with tools and actionable data for risk stratification, readmission management and risk adjustment optimization.

In-home Diabetic Retinopathy Exams help to meet HEDIS and STAR measures.  This is a photographic exam with no dilation required.  The program consists of both mail and telephonic outreach in which a exam is scheduled with a technician that captures photographic retinal images.  The images are interpreted by a locally licensed Ophthalmologist or Optometrist. These images can also detect other eye diseases.  Results are mailed to the member, to the member's PCP, and shared with the plan. 


Our highly skilled registered nurses perform the telephone based assessment and corresponding documentation, which may be required initially and then annually for health plan members. The assessment helps to identify any additional services that would benefit the member.
