Onlife Health Announces Partnership with Lyft

 

New Partnership Enhances The Onlife Health Medicare Advantage Solution

 

Brentwood, Tenn., June 5, 2017— Onlife Health today announced a new partnership with Lyft, a leading rideshare company, to provide Medicare Advantage members the ability to schedule non-urgent medical transportation, with the goal of ensuring Medicare Advantage members are not missing healthcare appointments.

Every year more than 3.6 million people miss a healthcare appointment because they lack transportation to get to the provider’s office.  This new partnership will provide Onlife’s health plan clients a service that directly benefits their members: the ability to schedule non-emergency medical rides in advance through Onlife’s Medicare Advantage member portal.

“We are excited to be working with Lyft,” said Mark McConnell, CEO of Onlife Health.  “Core to Onlife Health’s mission is changing individuals’ behavior in a positive way – whether it’s driving employees and members to healthier behavior, or supporting Seniors in closing gaps in care that translate directly into positive health outcomes and positive customer experiences. This partnership with Lyft solves one of the barriers to positive health by getting Seniors to the appointments that help drive health outcomes.”

“Our  partnership with Onlife Health will help eliminate barriers for people who need to get to their doctors’ appointments.  We are thrilled to be part of Onlife Health's Medicare Advantage offering to help close this transportation gap for millions of senior citizens,” said Gyre Renwick, Head of Healthcare Partnerships at Lyft.
