  • Rite Aid and tech startup Homeward announced they are partnering to improve access to rural health care. Beginning this summer, Rite Aid will introduce Medicare-eligible customers to Homeward’s services (e.g., wellness visits, screenings, and risk assessments) and host Homeward mobile health care units at certain rural Michigan locations, with the goal of expanding to more markets. Homeward will use a value-based, total capitation model instead of the traditional fee-for-service model. (Press release here)
