I regret signing up for your HMO.I now must pay for drugs and services which were free with United.I feel restricted by your limitations.It seems there isn`t much I can do until next December except to warn everyone i know to caveat emptor where Prominence is concerned.
I am a new member. I went to both Walmart (on Pyramid/Sparks) and Walgreens (on Los Altos/Sparks) to use the OTC benefit to purchase some vitamins and neither of the stores knew what I was talking about, nor did they have any bottles of vitamins that showed the OTC labeling. Now what?
Congratulations Kamal on your promotion to CEO!! Vicki Cox COX Insurance Services
Great at taking your money and giving you headaches when trying to get medical services. What a joke. They care about their bottom line more than they care about your health or comfort from pain.

Baby gets farewell ceremony after 80 days in the NICU

This is such a heartwarming story from our partners at South Texas Health System! We are thrilled that baby Gloria is home and healthy.

goodmorningamerica.com Gloria Patten weighed just 2 pounds when she was born at 26 weeks.

This week we are celebrating our partners at Regional Emergency Medical Services Authority - REMSA for EMS Appreciation Week. Each and every day they help patients quickly get the care they need during an emergency.

But we are also fortunate to partner with REMSA on the Prominence Nurse Line for Medicare Advantage members. If you have symptoms and aren't sure what to do, now you have the option to speak to a registered nurse simply by calling 877.736.7218 (TTY: 711). Nurses have special training and experience to answer your call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Happy EMS Appreciation Week to all those keeping our communities healthy and safe! #EMSStrong

This week marks the 46th annual National Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Week. The theme this year is "Ready Today. Preparing for Tomorrow." At REMSA, that is exactly what we do. We recognize all the paramedics, emergency medical technicians (EMTs), medical dispatchers, nurses, educators, logistics technicians, mechanics and our administrative staff for their dedication to keeping our community safe now and in the future.

As #NursesWeek comes to a close, we'd like to recognize one more nurse from our team. Melissa Champion is a Utilization Review Nurse at Prominence Health Plan, who says her favorite part about being a nurse is helping others heal physically and spiritually.

At the age 18, Melissa spent more than a week in the hospital. "The nurses made all the difference in my recovery," said Melissa. "One nurse in particular was so compassionate and kind, I still think how this one nurse’s kindness impacted my whole world."

We send our gratitude to Melissa, and all the wonderful nurses in our Prominence family and network. #Nurses2020 #YearoftheNurse

Prominence is a company that makes it possible for me to provide the quality of care to patients that meets my standards," Soleil said. "I love Einstein quotes, and one of my favorites is, “Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new”. Medicine is ever changing and improving, and Prominence is always changing what they do for their members so we may provide the best managed care. I am proud to be a part of a team, and company, that is focused on providing solutions now, tomorrow, and into the future."

Soleil is a Nurse Care Manager at Prominence, who was destined to be in healthcare. "I come from a family with a healthcare background; my father was a medic in Vietnam then became a nurse, my brother is a doctor, and my twin sister is a fire fighter, a very related field. This inspired me to become a nurse as well." #NursesWeek #Nurses2020 #YearoftheNurse

Health Experts Encourage The Use Telemedicine | Fox News South Texas

Dr. Matthew Johnson of Family Health Center of Mission met with KFXV - Fox News South Texas and NoticiasYa 48 this week to talk about how to leverage telemedicine for follow-ups and other medical appointments that don’t necessarily require an in-person appointment.

foxnewssouthtexas.com ADVERTISEMENT Health Experts Encourage The Use Telemedicine Posted by Isamar Martinez | May 7, 2020 | Local News COVID-19 is still present in the area and health experts want to make sure the elderly community of South Texas is taking advantage of telemedicine. Dr. Mathew Johnson, a doctor at a prom...

"I became a nurse after my mother passed away. Her oncology nurse during her last days went beyond to highlight my mother as a person and, not her diagnosis. This nurse held our hands and shared tears with our family as she took her last breath. This nurse was our anchor in what felt like a never-ending storm. The compassion and love that a nurse exudes is a gift given to me during that experience. I felt an obligation and passion to give that back."

Christine Rapisora joined our team in March as a Nurse Case Manager after spending most of her career in the ICU.

"My absolute favorite part of being a nurse is connecting to members and families. I find passion in reminding my members that during the vulnerable and sensitive times of a health crisis they are not alone. Many times, it can forgotten that physical and emotional healing is spent outside of a hospital and, it is truly an honor to connect and remind members of their strength and growth."

Thank you to Christine for your compassion and dedication to helping our members during some of their worst time! #NursesWeek #Nurses2020 #YearoftheNurse

JoAnne White is a Nurse Care Coordinator for our ASO (Self-Funded) product who provides moral support to members, while assisting with provider choice, resources, and explaining benefits and coverage.

"My favorite part about being a nurse is touching the lives of my members during a difficult health issue for them or their family. I am always available to them for any questions they may have, to be a shoulder to cry on, or to explain treatments and procedure they may not fully understand. To be there just to listen to them when they need moral support and are overwhelmed with decisions or finances. Being a direct contact for them, makes them feel at ease should an issue arise, whether it be treatment or billing concerns. I am always just a call or email away."

Thank you, JoAnne for providing such wonderful care to our members! #NursesWeek #Nurses2020 #YearoftheNurse

As we kick-off Nurses Week, we want to highlight a story from our Care Management team, who helped one of our Medicare Advantage successfully eradicate a chronic bed bug infestation. Our member has several chronic health conditions that, until recently, were not managed because providers declined treatment due to bed bugs being brought into their facilities.

Our RN Care Manager Janine Hansen worked with our team of care coordinators and several community agencies to get our member moved into new housing and collected new and donated items to replace his belongings. Janine spent the day with our member on moving day to ensure that his bed bugs were left behind while also following COVID-19 safety protocols.

We’d also like to send our appreciation to Aging and Disability Services - State of Nevada - Lifespan NV, Volunteers of America Northern California & Northern Nevada, Northern Nevada HOPES, LDS Fernley, the Community of Fernley, Accellence Home Medical, and the City of Reno Government for their support and donations to help our member!

Valley Health hospitals will begin certain elective surgeries again May 4

Our partners at Valley Health System will begin elective surgeries starting today. Karla Perez, Regional Vice President of The Valley Health System, says while the hospital is ready to meet the surgical needs of our patients, she recognizes that some individuals may have concerns about coming to the hospital while some COVID-19 cases are still being reported in the state.

“To give patients greater peace of mind, the hospital implemented additional safety protocols that include: screening temperature checks and health questions being asked at entry points before anyone is allowed to enter the hospital; deep cleaning and disinfection; suspended visitation; as well as practicing appropriate social distancing,” says Perez. “Our enhanced cleaning and sanitizing protocols also include the use of UV light sterilization, as a further method of disinfection."
