The Independence at Home (IAH) Demonstration was enacted under the Affordable Care Act and administered by the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation to test the efficacy of a home-based primary care delivery model to improve health outcomes and reduce expenditures for Medicare beneficiaries of multiple chronic conditions.
CLINICAL MODEL RESULTS
In the first year of the IAH Demonstration, a CMS analysis found that program participants "saved more than $25 million—an average of $3,070 per participating beneficiary—while delivering high quality patient care in the home."
Principium Health is taking the successful IAH in-home model and providing services for chronically ill Medicare Advantage members. Our highly personalized care offers a unique solution to patients and families, health plans and physicians. CMS demonstrations have repeatedly shown that our in-home model of care has the ability to significantly decrease overall medical costs primarily by decreasing unnecessary and preventable ER visits, hospital admissions, and skilled nursing and rehab admissions.
