Passport: Helping Kentuckians Live Healthier Lives
Continuing Success During Change
In 2012, we continued our 15-year tradition of improving the health and quality of life of our members. This was another year of great change for Passport, and we encountered it with determination, flexibility,and a steadfast resolve to serve the Commonwealth and its Medicaid members. We successfully bid to continue our important work in our region and witnessed a landslide of member and provider support.
Living the Mission
We also continued to meet the needs of the Commonwealth while affirming our values – in fact, this year we even expanded our efforts to improve our culture. Unifying internally, we were better-prepared to make a number of important changes. We worked diligently to integrate the behavioral with physical health, improved our subcontractor oversight, invested more time and energy into new, innovative programs and systems, and executed
a new contract with our state. Meanwhile, our member and provider satisfaction rates stayed high, and our health outcomes remained above the national average. All of these important efforts were recognized and have helped Passport to be ranked as the #1 Medicaid health plan in Kentucky*.
