Care Value Optimizer

Delivering navigated access to high quality, lower cost care

Self-insured plans finally have a solution that triages network selection, care and treatment based on both the financial and health needs of the member: NaVcare Enhanced with Care Value Optimizer, a data-enabled tool used by Vālenz® Health nurse navigators to swiftly identify the best available care options based on members’ income, location and healthcare needs. We tailor care to each member, matching members to high-quality providers and provider networks – from low-cost and no-cost charity care options to Centers of Excellence (COE), imaging, and surgical care bundles. Our care guidance balances quality, utilization and cost with an emphasis on keeping members in-network at the highest possible level of quality care for the lowest cost.

How Enhanced Care Navigation Works

  • When members have a care need, they call (800) 441-7705 to engage with a NaVcare team member.
  • If the member is a match for a low-cost/no-cost opportunity, the navigator facilitates the necessary paperwork, scheduling, and selection of a provider prior to care.
  • If the member is not a match, the navigator evaluates our Centers of Excellence which cover thousands of procedures – including imaging and surgical care – from high-quality providers across all 50 states.
  • If neither of the above is a good match, nurses navigate the member to in-network options. Only as a last resort will the navigator select an out-of-network solution.
  • All levels are wrapped with our Care Management services to ensure best value and continuity of care.
