PursueCare Launches Telehealth Addiction Treatment Programs For Rural Populations In Kentucky & West Virginia
On December 11, 2019, PursueCare announced the launch of new telehealth addiction treatment programs for rural populations in Kentucky and in West Virginia. The programs provide telehealth counseling via a smartphone app and medication-assisted treatment. The purpose is to transition consumers with opioid use disorder (OUD) from emergency departments and rural health clinics into treatment at home. During 2020, the company plans to expand to Connecticut, Maine, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Vermont, and Virginia, with services in Connecticut and Vermont launching in early March.
PursueCare is in-network with Medicare, Medicaid, all managed care organizations (MCOs), and most commercial insurances in Kentucky and West Virginia. It also works with employee assistance programs, and participates with veterans’ plans under TRICARE. PursueCare is forming partnerships with organizations that received Kentucky Opioid Response and Education grants (KORE), which will implement and leverage PursueCare services as a resource. The company is also opening a physical clinic in Somerset, Kentucky for consumers who may need more intensive in-person assessments.
The company holds LegitScript certification for addiction treatment. LegitScript certifies companies that provide addiction treatment via any platform, including facility-based, outpatient office-based, and online via telehealth. LegitScript certification is used by Google and Facebook to verify the compliance, legality, and legitimacy of addiction treatment provider organizations marketing their products and services to consumers. PursueCare’s mail-order and specialty recovery pharmacy, CompreCare, also earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval Accreditation.
