Papa announces pilot program with Mutual of Omaha
Papa, the platform of companionship and support to older adults and families, announced a pilot program with Mutual of Omaha and its affiliates that will serve eligible Medicare supplement policyholders in Illinois and Missouri.
Papa services will be available to eligible Mutual of Omaha policyholders to help address the impact that social isolation and access to essential care and services have on health outcomes for aging adults.
“At Papa we are on a mission to combat loneliness and isolation, and to optimize other social determinants of health. Through our collaboration with Mutual of Omaha, we are expanding our reach to bring needed support to eligible Medicare supplement policyholders in Illinois and Missouri. Our goal, with Mutual of Omaha, is to improve health outcomes while providing an amazing member experience.” – Andrew Parker, Founder and CEO of Papa.
“We recognize that older individuals are more vulnerable to loneliness and social isolation and, as a result, more at risk for a range of health and social issues. This was an issue we faced pre-pandemic that has become even more prevalent today. We’re excited to collaborate with Papa on the Papa Pals program as we look for ways to create positive connections.” – Dr. Manoj Pawar, VP and Chief Medical Officer at Mutual of Omaha.
