HealthSpring | National MCO Analyzer | 2011 (Event Driven)

HealthSpring, a carrier of Medicare Advantage and Part D plans, is now the largest national carrier whose entire focus is the senior population. With major operations in eleven states, the acquisition-driven company has recently completed its largest purchase to date, that of Baltimore-based Bravo Health, and its leaders are promising to expand its company-owned or exclusively-contracted clinics, in addition to expanding its footprint contiguous to its major market centers. It is actively on the hunt for other regional provider-based MA plans, and is also making a foray into serving those dually eligible for Medicaid and Medicare.
