TracFone Wireless And Voxiva Partner With Molina Healthcare To Provide Free Cell Phones And Mobile Health Services

Monthly phone service and mobile health programs at no cost to Medicaid beneficiaries

SALT LAKE CITY, Nov. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- TracFone Wireless and Voxiva, Inc. have announced a partnership with Molina Healthcare of Utah, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Molina Healthcare, Inc. (NYSE: MOH), to engage and support Medicaid members in taking an active role in their health using their mobile phones.  Through SafeLink Health Solutions, a TracFone Wireless brand, Molina will be able to enhance communications with their members through the use of free cell phones and help them stay healthy through text message-based health services.

Qualifying Molina members receive a phone with 250 monthly minutes, unlimited text messaging and toll-free calls to Molina's Member Services. Participants may also subscribe to Voxiva's suite of mobile health programs (text4baby, text4kids and txt4health), which provide families with timely information and alerts that encourage them to follow recommended guidelines such as physical exams, preventative screenings, flu shots and vaccinations.

Voxiva's mobile health services assist health plans in improving key quality measures and increasing member retention. Independent evaluations have demonstrated improved outcomes on key Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set/Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic, and Treatment measures such as appointment attendance and immunizations.

"With the help of SafeLink Health Solutions, we are able to provide a unique tool that greatly enhances the quality of services to our Utah members," said Chad Westover, President of Molina Healthcare of Utah. "Through these educational resources and support, such as the free cell phones, our members now have the added benefit of knowing that important health information is merely a text or call away," continued Westover. 

"Voxiva has been a pioneer in delivering mobile health services that improve health of expectant and new moms, children, adults and individuals living with diabetes," said Paul Meyer, Chairman & President – Voxiva. "We are pleased to partner with Molina and TracFone so that these proven services can continue to reach people at no cost to them and at no cost to their health care provider," concluded Meyer.

"Safelink Health Solutions provides Molina Healthcare members with the tools to better manage their health and lead more productive lives," said F.J. Pollak, President and CEO of TracFone. "Our free mobile phones and health alerts can lead Molina members on a course to prevent illness and reduce hospital re-admissions.
