Justice, Health, & Equity
Our services bring cost-effective, quality healthcare to prisons so individuals can receive the care they are entitled to—and continuity of it upon return to their communities, so their healthcare is maintained and quality of life is improved.
Long-Term Services and Supports
Our long-term services and supports team partners with Medicaid agencies to improve the delivery of care to the country’s most vulnerable medically complex populations through our consulting, clinical operations, policy and planning, and workforce development and training.
Medicare Eligibility Enhancement Program
Our team employs a specialized analytical approach, deep understanding of federal rules, and proprietary software tools to help our Medicaid partners achieve meaningful results beyond the routine Medicare eligibility for expanded member benefits and enhanced Medicare savings.
Our team delivers knowledge and resources to assist with the creation and implementation of a state’s customized unified formulary for their Medicaid managed care, providing members with better continuity of care and states potentially millions of dollars in savings on overall drug spend.
ForHealth is committed to finding solutions that transform healthcare. You need better access, better knowledge, and better performance for your organization and those you serve. Let’s get there together.
Our healthcare system leaves too many behind. We help you put great care within reach of those who need it.

Healthcare is complex. Our products make you more efficient, so you can deliver the right care where and when it matters.
