NEW YORK and DALLAS, 06 April 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Quit Genius, the world’s first digital clinic for multi-substance addiction treatment, and Evry Healtha modern business-to-business health insurance company, today announced its partnership to provide Quit Genius solutions to Evry Health members in dallas from April 2022. The partnership between the two companies allows Evry Health focus on providing its members with evidence-based addiction treatment for tobacco, alcohol and opioid addiction.
Quit Genius offers the industry’s most comprehensive virtual clinical care model for addiction. The program combines virtual behavioral therapy with approved medications and connected devices to help people overcome their addiction from the comfort and privacy of their own home. To date, Quit Genius has helped over 750,000 people improve their lives and beat their addictions. The average success rate of people participating in the Quit Genius tobacco program is 52%, much higher than traditional methods. Members enrolled in the Quit Genius alcohol program have a 62% reduction in the frequency of alcohol consumption within the first 30 days of care.
Quit Genius is the only solution of its kind with eight peer-reviewed studies and one randomized controlled trial demonstrating best-in-class results. The company works directly with employers as well as health plans to deliver its solutions.
Thanks to this new partnership, the Quit Genius solutions will be integrated within the framework of Evry Health bespoke wellness plans that cost employers or their employees nothing. Evry Health proactively coordinates wellness solutions that respond immediately to members’ needs and strive to provide better and more comprehensive care to the individual. For example, if a member is admitted to a rehab clinic, or has a drug-related hospitalization claim, Evry Health proactively recommends the member in the Quit Genius digital addiction treatment program. Members can also self-enroll in one or more of the Quit Genius programs (tobacco, alcohol, or opioids), or work with their Evry Healthcare Guide to be recommended to the program based on prescreening criteria.
“This is a whole new way to deliver addiction treatment to employees and we are thrilled to partner with Quit Genius to change how the system works while using technology to better serve our members,” said declared Chris Gay, Evry Health CEO. “Focusing on results is how all health care should be delivered. We are confident that our members will receive the best care possible and have a better quality of life throughout the Quit Genius program.”
“We are inspired by Evry Health’s efforts to change the health insurance landscape with the same kind of whole patient approach that Quit Genius has used to deliver addiction treatment,” said Yusuf Sherwani, MD, co-founder and CEO of Quit Genius. “Together, we can deliver patient-centered care at scale, ensuring individuals have a better quality of life, are more productive members of society, and feel better about themselves.”
These specialized and optional wellness solutions offer a wide range of resources, tools and rewards that are different from other health insurance plans. In addition to addiction treatment and the Quit Genius program, Evry Health provides additional support, such as mental health services, nutrition counseling, activity-based encouragement or training, and cardiovascular care management.
Evry Health also incentivizes and rewards members for following their personalized care plans. For example, a member who maintains their commitment with the Quit Genius program will receive a financial reward credited to the Evry Rewards credit card for this. Encouraging members to address their addictions can result in significant cost savings for both employee and employer. Employees don’t waste as much time at work or with family, and don’t incur unnecessary medical costs associated with treatment, recovery, relapses and potential injuries. These improved results also benefit employers who are often impacted by lost days due to absenteeism and reduced productivity.
