Anthem, Inc. last week unveiled plans to acquire myNEXUS, Inc., “a comprehensive home-based nursing management company for payors,” the insurer said in a press release. The myNEXUS platform is a provider-facing service, and allows for streamlined authorization of in-home nursing care. Anthem said myNEXUS currently serves 1.7 million Medicare Advantage (MA) members across 20 states. Anthem is currently the fifth-largest MA payer in the U.S., with 1,493,268 enrollees, a 16% increase from last year.
