What role do commercial payers have in the shift toward value-based care?

I think all insurers have a big role in value-based care and commercial is no different than that. If you think about commercial insurance, often times they’re working with large employers, and those employers need healthy populations and they need to have affordable healthcare for their employees because the employees bear the burden of that. So, I think commercial insurers will need to help us push towards more affordable healthcare and delivering on more wellness and health for their populations.

I think you see that also in the Medicare population. Nationally, you’re seeing more and more experimentation with that, and then in the Medicaid population, depending on your state, you’re seeing a lot of experimentation with that, as well. In New Mexico, we’re a Medicaid expansion state, and we’ve been Managed Medicaid for well over 20 years. So, we really work closely with the state to design benefits that really improve the health of the population.
