The Cost of Loneliness and Social Isolation

Sellers Dorsey is pleased to announce that Gary Jessee is moderating a panel discussion about addressing urgent mental health needs through Medicaid at the ADvancing States’ Home- and Community-Based Services (HCBS) Conference. The session will be held August 17 at 4pm–5pm ET in Washington, DC.

In this panel discussion, executives from various Medicaid plans share why it is essential for plans to address mental health needs, which also impact individuals’ physical health. Loneliness and social isolation have measurable, predictive indicators that have allowed these plans to proactively address crucial health needs before they become costly. Panelists will discuss how partnering with Pyx Health has helped plans improve member engagement, address isolation, and reduce urgent health care needs.
