Health Choice Preferred
Health Choice has a 25-year history of continuously managing capitated covered lives, including a large cohort of managed Medicaid lives. We have extensive experience in containing medical costs, including the use of systems and processes intended to enable healthcare providers to improve efficiency and lower costs while increasing quality of care.
In recent years, we have applied our experience to new populations, including attributed lives in Medicare, Exchange and commercial health plans, through our Health Choice Preferred accountable care networks.
Health Choice has led the development of our Health Choice Preferred provider networks in Arizona and Utah, which enhance our hospitals’ and participating physicians’ abilities to coordinate care and enter into value-based arrangements with commercial payers that reward effective population health management. These networks and the related Health Choice Preferred physician associations include over 1000 physicians and represent part of our overall physician alignment strategy, which we also pursue through direct employment, professional services arrangements and other avenues.
By deploying the full breadth of our integrated healthcare services platform, we seek to create a collaborative, coordinated care delivery model between our healthcare delivery assets, aligned physicians and Health Choice managed care risk platform to position us to achieve incremental growth for both our network providers and the payers who contract with them.
