HealthSpring partners with Bordeaux

Nashville Business Journal - August 30, 2007

SpecialCare is a Medicare Advantage Institutional Special Needs Plan designed specifically for the long-term care residents of the Nashville nursing facility and will be available to Bordeaux residents Sept. 1.

"The SpecialCare program is specifically designed for older, frailer members," says Shawn Morris, president of HealthSpring of Tennessee in a release. "By partnering with Bordeaux Long Term Care, we can combine our efforts to keep these members healthier and improve their quality of life."

Bordeaux is Middle Tennessee's largest nursing facility, licensed for 419 beds.

The SpecialCare program provides a personal HealthSpring customer service representative to answer questions for the plan member and family, as well as a nurse practitioner who works with the facility's physicians for additional preventive-care.

HealthSpring (NYSE: HS) is one of the country's largest managed care organizations, focusing primarily on the Medicare Advantage market.
