September 25, 2018

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 25, 2018--Catasys, Inc. (NASDAQ: CATS) (“Catasys” or the “Company”), a leading AI and technology-enabled healthcare company, today announced that it has expanded its OnTrak-A solution into Florida and Georgia with one of the nation’s leading health plans. This follows OnTrak-A’s expansion into Iowa and Nebraska earlier this month.

Eligible commercial and Medicare Advantage plan members in Florida and Georgia are now able to participate in OnTrak-A, an integrated 52-week program that identifies, engages and treats members with unaddressed behavioral health conditions that impact co-morbid medical conditions, such as diabetes, hypertension, coronary artery disease, COPD, and congestive heart failure, resulting in high medical costs. Catasys has a unique ability to engage these care avoidant members, improving their health while reducing healthcare costs.

Rick Anderson, President and Chief Operating Officer of Catasys, stated, “We are pleased to see this health plan partner continue to expand their deployment of the OnTrak program, validating the results our program has yielded—their members’ improved quality of life and significantly lower healthcare costs. Our goal is to engage and effectively treat as many members as possible, and we look forward to our continued partnership with this national health plan.”
