On this episode of Managed Care Cast, we bring you part 1 of an 8-part video conversation with a payer and a primary health care provider about how they adapted to deliver health care in 2020 and 2021. We sat down with Tunde Sotunde, MD, MBA, the president and CEO of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina, the largest insurer in that state covering more than 3.7 million members across all 100 counties, and Alan Story, MD, of Newtown Family Physicians, an independent primary care practice in Catawba County in the western part of the state.

Our conversation, moderated by Allison Inserro, managing editor of AJMC.com, the website of The American Journal of Managed Care®, delves into value-based care, independent care practices, the health care workforce, health equity, and the role of Medicaid.
