2022 Outlook: MA Insurer Execs Plan Investments Supporting Equity, SDOH
For our annual series of forward-looking articles, AIS Health recently featured the perspectives of multiple industry experts on what Medicare Advantage stakeholders will be focusing on in 2022. For a follow-up installment, we asked several health plan leaders to share how their respective organizations will be innovating this year to meet aging members’ needs, advance health equity and address social determinants of health (SDOH) amid the backdrop of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
“The pandemic emphasized how our most daunting challenge — reaching our members in a new remote, digital-first landscape — remains our most compelling opportunity. Delivering home-based care to our nearly 10 million Medicare members and equipping them with the resources they need to age in place are central to our 2022 agenda,” says Jamie Sharp, M.D., vice president and chief medical officer of Aetna Medicare, a CVS Health company.
