Medicaid managed care program STAR+PLUS provides health care for adults with disabilities and those who are 65 years of age or older. The program offers Medicaid health care, long-term care services, and support for the members of the population. Through this program, healthcare professionals and staff work together to address members’ specific needs. STAR+PLUS members receive comprehensive care that addresses acute, functional, and social needs. Their needs are met by integrating different health care services and implementing person-centered planning.
ESPN has also announced that Star+ will bring the ESPN brand to Latin America. It will include both Disney and ESPN content, as well as content from ESPN Plus. Star+ is scheduled to launch in Latin America in June 2021. ESPN currently has 86 million subscribers and Disney has 137 million. Star+ will compete with Netflix, HBO, and Amazon Prime. If it works well, it will be a powerful new competitor for Netflix, HBO Max, and Hulu.
In addition to the movies and TV shows that are available on other streaming services, Star+ also provides original programming from Latin America. Original productions like Love, Victor, and Big Sky are available exclusively on Star+. In addition, the service offers acclaimed stars and personalities behind the scenes. The network also offers full seasons of popular television shows such as This Is Us, The Walking Dead, Pam & Tommy, and The Last Man. It is unclear what the future holds for the platform, but the first year’s lineup is promising.
