Health Equity Connections & Accountable Care

I believe the HECAC plan has merit, and feel that any plan that will reduce emergency visit medical costs is worth further exploration.

The healthcare system needs an innovative approach if it is to survive.I fully endorse and support the highly qualified and enthusiastic individuals spearheading this project, which includes Gary J Stein of Health Equity Connections and Accountable Care, and Anne Maynard of University of South Florida’s Area Health Education Center.I truly believe that they can make a difference.

​The to reduce Medicaid costs by improving the quality and delivery of healthcare within a virtual medical home. 

​I encourage your consideration of this worthy cause.tle

HECAC can save Medicaid and other payee systems millions of dollars annually and reduce the impact of uncompensated care on providers and patients.
