UHealthSolutions (formerly Public Sector Partners) was launched in 2001 as a nonprofit business affiliate of UMass Medical School. We continue to serve as the nonprofit operational arm of Commonwealth Medicine, the Medical School’s health care consulting division.
UHealthSolutions also provides a full array of flexible health care management and consulting services to large and small organizations in multiple sectors:
- Public health
- Human service
- Managed care
Supporting growing health care programs
One of our first successes was managing the Prescription Advantage program in Massachusetts. This state pharmaceutical assistance program provides prescription drug coverage for people 65 and over, as well as for those under 65 with disabilities who meet income and employment guidelines.
Since we began administering Prescription Advantage on behalf of the Massachusetts Executive Office of Elder Affairs in 2001, the program has evolved to keep pace with the changing health care environment. As the scope of our work has expanded and the needs of the member population have changed, we have developed new solutions and improved our management of this complex program — and applied that knowledge to other client programs.
Expanding on success
We now provide clinical, administrative, and analytic solutions for a wide range of clients in a variety of operational areas:
- Enrollment and eligibility
- Coordination of benefits
- Contact center support
- Member appeals
- Third-party billing
- Claims coordination
- Medicare appeals
- Member education and outreach
Our UMass Medical School relationship
Our affiliate UMass Medical School is an academic health science center that has won national and international recognition for its discoveries and medical education programs.
Through our relationship with the Medical School, we have access to a wealth of clinical experts and information. We draw on these resources as we develop evidence-based, cost-effective solutions for our clients.
Partnering with clients
UHealthSolutions also has a longstanding tradition of working in partnership with clients. Our goal is to produce services and solutions that address the unique aspects of individual health care organizations — as well as those that can be applied throughout the health care sector.
