Longevity Health Plan will broaden access to SingFit technology.
Nursing home residents now have increased access to music therapy that can raise their quality of life. Longevity Health Plan recently announced it will cover SingFit. This music platform connects older adults, especially those with cognitive impairments, with the power of music and singing.
SingFit’s PRIME product engages older adults mentally and physically with singing, movement, trivia, and reminiscing. It was designed to support people with all types of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease, Lewy Bodies Dementia, Vascular Dementia and Frontotemporal Dementia, according to the SingFit website.
SingFit shares multiple scientific studies that support music therapy as a way to improve mood and reduce pain. “We empower healthcare professionals, love economy caregivers and individuals to utilize music as medicine on a mass scale for the first time in history,” says their website.
SingFit says its PRIME product is currently serving older adults at over 500 long-term care facilities. The Longevity Health Plan is an Institutional Special Needs Plan (I-SNP), a specialized Medicare Advantage health plan serving people living in skilled nursing facilities.
In May of this year, Longevity Health Plan and Humana Inc. announced a partnership to expand ISNP offerings, with new plans available in South Carolina and Georgia this year. The plans are expected to be available in additional states in 2024 and 2025.
