Hinge Health selected by CVS Health to bring digital musculoskeletal care to its pharmacy benefit management clients

To address high medical spend, 4 in 5 employers with a digital musculoskeletal solution are working with Hinge Health

SAN FRANCISCO, March 11, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- After rigorous evaluation, CVS Health selected Hinge Health as part of its Point Solutions Management service to help its pharmacy benefit management (PBM) clients address a top medical cost driver, musculoskeletal (MSK) care. The decision was made after reviewing Hinge Health's unmatched track record, product technology, and validated outcomes. Published studies show Hinge Health avoided 2 out of 3 surgeries while reducing chronic pain, opioid use, anxiety, depression, and absenteeism. Plan sponsors can adopt Hinge Health through CVS Health's Point Solutions Management service.

MSK conditions affect 1 in 2 Americans a year, leading to an overuse of elective surgeries and opiates. Hinge Health's digital coach-led solution helps Americans address their chronic back and joint pain by combining wearable sensor-guided exercise therapy with behavioral change through 1-on-1 health coaching and education. To address high medical spend, 4 in 5 employers with a digital MSK solution have partnered with Hinge Health.

As the market leader, Hinge Health is already available to millions, enrolling upwards of 1,000 members a day to their coach-led digital solution for chronic back and joint pain. This CVS Health relationship follows other recently announced partnerships with Blues Plans.

"We are thrilled to work with CVS Health, a leader in health care transformation to help more Americans overcome their chronic back and joint pain. This relationship is a strong validation of Hinge Health's track record, enterprise readiness, and clinical outcomes," said Hinge Health CEO and Co-Founder Daniel Perez. "Already 4 in 5 employers with a digital MSK solution have selected Hinge Health, and we're excited to extend that lead with CVS Health."
