Medical frequent flyers or super utilizers are those that use a disproportionate amount of healthcare resources relative to the average user. These super utilizers (making up 1% of the population) can use upwards of 25-30% of all the healthcare resources in a given year. In the state Medicaid programs, approximately 5% of the beneficiaries drive more 50% of the total spending. The vast majority have 3 or more chronic conditions. Most of the individuals possess a complex array of social challenges including – homelessness, substance abuse, poor nutrition, no/poor family network, joblessness, etc. See how innovative programs are changing these people’s lives, saving significant money for the health care system, and building sustainable businesses.
