“Taking a page from the travel surgery playbooks that the large, high-profile companies have followed over the past few years, mid-size or smaller employers and plan sponsors now recognize that the site of service significantly impacts the quality and cost of care. These are the keys factors in selecting where to have procedures performed – everything from MRIs and diagnostics to complex surgeries.
Learn how TPAs, brokers and employers are educating and incenting employees to make better choices – from reducing coinsurance to eliminating copayments, paying travel expenses or cash rewards. The goal is to help employees seek the right care, at the right time, and in the right place – in or out of current networks.”

Simeon is responsible for all aspects of these businesses including current performance, as well as establishing and implementing strategic priorities that will enhance future success.
Effective and transformative innovation is Simeon’s personal trademark, and he will draw upon his broad management experience, leadership expertise and deep understanding of the varied participants in the healthcare marketplace to drive the growth of BHPS.

Simeon drove rapid growth that was catalyzed by a commitment to bringing consumers “knowledge, trust, and confidence.”
Previously, he was senior vice president, Commercial Markets (2009 – 2012) at Medica Health Plans, Minnetonka, Minnesota, where he and his team created My Plan by Medica, an exceptional provider-oriented product developed in partnership with health systems.
