The Dean ASO Network includes our integrated SSM Health System which is known for its high quality of care and access to hundreds of specialists. We partner with you to evaluate access, discounts and provider practices when considering network to match your needs with the right network. Dean Health Plan is flexible, so if your business has sites outside of our service area we also offer most PPO networks.
Dean integrates physician leadership at the health plan, our hospitals and clinics to develop cost containment plans. We provide Utilization Management, Case Management, trend analysis and employer based wellness offerings to help each client establish a cost-effective plan. Our top priority is to help members develop a self-care regimen when faced with a chronic disease such as heart failure or diabetes.
The Utilization Management (UM) team uses pre-admission certification, prior authorization and concurrent reviews to assess the appropriateness of medical services. The review of services includes skilled nursing and rehabilitation care, home health care services, hospice care, behavioral health outpatient care and more.
