Priority Health: New 2024 Disease Burden Management Program Coming Soon; AHA and Persistency Programs Retire

October 9, 2023

We know how much hard work you put into population health and chronic condition management in your practices. We want to make capturing important information about your patients easier and more efficient so you can focus your time on what matters most – your patients, our members.

We’ve heard your feedback and will be retiring our Advanced Health Assessment (AHA) and persistency programs, which required the use of the S-code in claims, effective December 31, 2023. We’ll continue to accept claims with 2023 dates of service through February 29, 2024 to ensure complete final payouts for both programs.

To continue our partnership focused on improving patient outcomes through complete and accurate documentation of chronic conditions, we’re launching the 2024 Disease Burden Management program.

Why are we launching a new program?

We’re reimagining our programs to help streamline your administrative workflow with new coding requirements more aligned to industry standards and to help close care gaps. The new Disease Burden Management program will have elements of both AHA and persistency and is designed to more effectively assess a member’s full burden of illness through an emphasis on capturing and managing all chronic conditions.

Full program details will be available in the coming months.

We’re committed to providing you with tools for success as we transition programs and continue to work toward our shared goal of better patient outcomes. Thank you for your commitment to your patients, our members.
