It’s not an app, portal, website, or call center. It’s actual high-touch, primary care delivered in neighborhoods. Inner-city neighborhoods, to be specific. Where people often receive too much of the wrong care rather than too little care. And the care they get is often uncoordinated & delivered by high-cost specialists or at the most expensive place to receive care: the hospital emergency room.

At Ampersand Health, we’ve designed a simple solution to address the need for efficient, low-cost care for Managed Medicaid, Medicare Advantage & Dual Eligible members. They are CityLife Neighborhood Clinics. It’s simple, coordinated care delivered where members live — in inner-city neighborhoods.
