DORAL, Fla., Nov. 18, 2021 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Solis Health Plans, a 4-star, NCQA Accredited Florida Medicare Advantage plan, today announced a partnership with Papa, a curated platform of companionship and support for older adults, families, and other vulnerable populations. All Solis members will receive access to the Papa Pals platform to sign up for “family on demand” benefits beginning in 2022.
Papa provides companionship and assistance through its work with Medicare Advantage plans, as well as increasingly with Medicaid and employer health plans. By using technology to match older adults and other members with vetted and trained companions, called “Papa Pals,” Papa meets needs that promote one’s health, but are non-medical in nature — ranging from technology assistance, meal preparation, light housework, transportation, and, of course, social interaction.
“Many older adults don’t have regular access to family help, or, they can benefit from using a program like Papa to supplement their existing network,” said Solis CEO Daniel Hernandez. “The stories of how Papa and Papa Pals have helped the senior community address social determinants of health, including the devastating impacts of loneliness, are remarkable, and this is an important and heart-warming service we are thrilled to soon offer to Solis members.”
