We all know preventive health screenings and regular well-check visits are essential for catching early signs of illness and helping patients maintain good overall health. However, the social determinants of health that lower-income patients, such as Medicaid beneficiaries, face often make it difficult for them to attend regular primary care visits.
For Medicaid beneficiaries and others who struggle to get screenings or attend regular appointments, ODs are the first line of preventive care. For one, standard eye exams are very important for vision health. The CDC says more than 60 million adults in the U.S. are at high risk for vision loss. Yet of that population, only 50% have seen an OD in the past year.
Consistent eye care can have a profound impact on overall health, as many systemic diseases can be identified through changes in eye health. But an engaged Medicaid population creates a ripple of positive effects that extend beyond the individual. By engaging their Medicaid patients, ODs become better stewards of community health. The value they bring to the community is enormous: In making early treatment of disease possible, they allow health systems to allocate resources appropriately and deliver high-quality services at lower costs.
Below are three ways ODs can improve Medicaid patients’ healthcare outcomes.
