Wellness and prevention information is promoted through mailings and in our award-winning member magazine, mailed to members’ homes on a quarterly basis.

Focusing

Focus on High Risk Members
When members are facing a chronic illness or a life-threatening condition, our medical management philosophy is to ease their concerns through coordinated, high-tech, high-touch, personalized service.

AvMed’s disease management programs address the special needs of members with chronic conditions ranging from diabetes to congestive heart failure. Our focus is to help them avoid complications that require expensive and debilitating treatment.

The programs, based on national guidelines for clinical outcomes, empower members to get involved in their care. These programs are administered by registered nurses, technicians and ancillary staff, and supported by AvMed medical directors.

AuthorizationOnline Consumer Tools

We make tough decisions easy for your employees by supplying them with the resources they need to become educated, cost-conscious health care consumers. They can learn about treatment options for a recent diagnosis, determine which hospital has the best results treating similar cases, and even find out what to expect after surgery. View an overview of the tools available to them. Employers must be registered members in order to use some of these tools.

Florida Compare Care
Based on data collected by the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA), this tool evaluates Florida’s short-term acute care hospitals and ambulatory (outpatient) surgery centers. On this site, you may search these facilities for information such as re-admission rates, mortality rates and complication/infection rates. Searches may be done by county, city or zip code.

Find a High-Quality Hospital
Search hospitals by name, location, procedure/condition or overall quality. Ratings and cost estimates are easy to understand, with side-by-side comparisons and detailed profiles. This tool can help you manage your healthcare costs and avoid complications associated with poor care.

Find a High-Quality Physician
Search physicians by name, location and specialty. Physician profiles include such useful details as their education, board certification, sanctions and malpractice issues. You also can learn about estimated treatment costs and view affiliated hospitals and patient satisfaction survey results. With this information, you’ll be able to compare doctors and find the one who’s right for you.

ER v. Urgent Care Centers
Knowing the difference between when to go to the Emergency Room (ER), or when an Urgent Care Center will do, can save you time and money. More than half of all ER visits are for minor, non-urgent problems. That means paying three to four times more than you would if you were to go to an Urgent Care Center. View a list of freestanding Urgent Care Centers in your area.
