Location: Denver
Posted on: January 15, 2021

Job Description:

Hospice/Palliative Medicine opening in Denver, Colorado. Primary Care Physician needed in Lakewood, CO
Headquartered in Denver, Colo., InnovAge offers PACE in Colorado, California, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. Our approximately 2,000 employees serve nearly 6,000 seniors. In Colorado, we also offer home care services for seniors, and own two affordable senior housing communities in the Denver metro area. The mission of InnovAge is to allow seniors to live life on their terms - by aging in place, in their own homes and communities, for as long as safely possible. The primary way we do this is through PACE. InnovAge is committed to expanding PACE to serve more seniors in more communities.
We are starting the process of looking for a primary care provider for our Thornton, CO PACE center.

PACE, a program of all-inclusive care of the elderly, is a fully capitated, fully at risk, value based program funded by state Medicaid funds (straight per member per month based on state legislature) and federal Medicare funding (based on RAF scoring from hierarchical chronic condition ICD-10 scores. To qualify, a participant has to be 55 years of age or older, and meet the local/state frailty requirements for nursing home admission. Because we are value based, we can surround the participant with services not usually found or easily available in the fee for service world, and thus help frail elders age safely in the community. PACE provides adult day center socialization and meals, therapies (OT, PT, Recreation, Speech), social work, transportation, mental health, pharmacy, primary care and palliative care, to name just a few of the services. The PACE model is predicated on the interdisciplinary team, which makes medical as well as functional decision with the participant. The position is ambulatory, full time Monday thru Friday with home based call that is shared. There would be 5-10 face to face visits per day, some medically based, some regulatory based (we have to see participants every 6 months for an assessment and care plan). There are family meetings, care planning meetings, review of potential enrollees, some nursing home work (while all of our participants qualify for nursing home care, only about 11% at any one time reside in a skilled nursing facility) involved.
Qualifications include:
Doctor of Medicine or Osteopathy Current/active state medical license in state of job posting DEA certificate Board Eligible or Board Certification; if Board Eligible, certification required within 2 years of date of hire Minimum of 1 year working with the frail or elderly Post graduate training in a Primary Care specialty, such as Internal or Family Medicine and completion of post-residency in training in geriatric medicine preferred, but not required. Highlights to our job opportunities include:

  • Shared call schedule
    • Flexible work schedule
      • Competitive salary
        • Medical, dental, vision, & disability benefits. Retirement plans available
          • Paid vacation and sick days
            • $2500/year towards CME
              • Happy, strong, hard-working collaborative team
                • Relocation assistance possible
                  Benefits
                  InnovAge is proud to offer a comprehensive benefits package to eligible regular full-time and regular part-time employees who work at least 24 hours per week.
