DaVita Health Solutions is the Health Plan Partner of Choice for C-SNPs

Who is DaVita Health Solutions?

We are DaVita's new venture for high-risk, poly-chronic patients, including but not limited to renal patients. We are passionate about significantly improving the quality of life for these patients, who often have difficulty accessing medical care, frequent the ER and hospital, and require a higher level of care than a traditional office visit can typically offer.

Our community-based medical groups provide comprehensive care services for a health plan's most vulnerable members—within the home, post-acute facility, dialysis center, or wherever they need care most. By helping patients get access to quality care, spend less time in the hospital, and live their healthiest lives, we also help reduce their total cost of care. That's why we are partnering with health plans to help address their high-risk populations. Chronic Special Needs Plans (C-SNPs) are a great way to take action.
