AtlantiCare Enhanced Care Center (DSRIP)

A new approach to managing complex medical conditions for patients with Diabetes and Hypertension who have Medicaid, Charity Care or Medicare/Medicaid.

The Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) Program is one component of the New Jersey's Comprehensive Medicaid Waiver as approved by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). DSRIP is a demonstration program designed to result in better care for individuals (including access to care, quality of care, health outcomes), better health for the population, and lower costs by transitioning hospital funding to a model where payment is contingent on achieving health improvement goals.

If you have a complicated medical condition, such as diabetes, congestive heart failure, cardiovascular disease, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, you know how difficult it is to manage and coordinate all of the providers.

The highly specialized staff at the AtlantiCare Enhanced Care Center is ready to help improve your health, simplify your life, and reduce your out-of-pocket medical expenses.

What's Different about Receiving Care at the Enhanced Care Center?

  • At the ECC you will be at the center of a team working together to coordinate and manage your care.
  • Your personal health coach will be by your side every step of the way, and will also keep the care team informed of your care plan and progress.
  • The ECC features a convenient on-site pharmacy where you can fill your prescriptions right after your appointment.
  • And as a member of the ECC, your physician co-pays will be waived and most of your medications will be completely free.

Call today to see if you qualify to participate in the AtlantiCare Enhanced Care Center.

Located in Atlantic City at the AtlantiCare Health Plex, hours of operation- Monday through Friday 9am to 6pm.

What is Mission Healthcare?

  • Staffed with highly qualified, caring professionals
  • Quality care provided regardless of insurance coverage or ability to pay
  • AtlantiCare Mission Health Care is an FTCA Deemed facility.

mhc-prescriptionSeven percent of the residents in Atlantic County are homeless (no permanent address), and more than 60 percent of these people have no form of healthcare.

Homeless individuals on average have not seen a medical professional in 7-10 years, and more than 40 percent have 6-8 conditions needing medical attention. Based on these startling statistics, and in accordance with our vision to build healthy communities, AtlantiCare opened Mission HealthCare in 2003 to provide primary healthcare to the homeless population in Atlantic County.

We treat all patients, regardless of their insurance coverage or ability to pay. Now, in addition to primary care, the Mission HealthCare program offers

  • substance abuse management and detox;
  • mental health services;
  • care for diabetes, asthma and cardiovascular disease;
  • case management;
  • transportation to medical services;
  • referrals for specialty care; and
  • prescription assistance.

AtlantiCare’s Mission HealthCare program is primarily located in Atlantic City’s Rescue Mission, the largest homeless shelter in the southern New Jersey region. Our patients include residents of the Mission and also many other uninsured individuals who do not have permanent homes.

Not only does Mission HealthCare provide much needed medical care to an underserved population, it also helps ease the burden on local emergency departments, which is where many of these patients end up when their conditions are not managed. Mission HealthCare is pleased to reach out to the homeless community in many ways, including visits to Sister Jean’s Kitchen and local jails. We also host an annual barbecue and vigil for the homeless.

FQHCs qualify for enhanced reimbursement from Medicare and Medicaid, as well as other benefi ts.

Annette's Story

In March of this year, Annette Thomas almost died. Her health was slowly deteriorating, but she didn’t realize it.

Annette didn’t have a regular primary care provider, so at the request of her daughter, she made an appointment with an AtlantiCare Primary Care Plus provider. And she’s glad she did. Her Advanced Practice Nurse (APN), Terri Rodino, discovered that Annette’s blood pressure was dangerously high. Terri immediately sent her to the emergency department at AtlantiCare, where they determined Annette had blockages in the left and right sides of her heart. Quite the dramatic turn of events—Annette would ultimately require two stents.

Months later, she feels like a new person. She’s healthy once again, and spends her days without any of the symptoms that plagued her before her emergency. No more shortness of breath, headaches or fatigue. She can keep up with her grandkids and their busy schedules—all thanks to the coordinated services of AtlantiCare. Annette continues to see Terri for routine care, as well as her cardiologist for follow-up care. She’s even started referring her friends to AtlantiCare.

Annette feels indebted to Terri for the support she provided. “It’s like a miracle happened,” she recalls warmly. “Terri saved my life.”
