Remedy’s Bid for Bundled Payments

By October 22, 2015Podcast

A serial entrepreneur, Steve Wiggins made his bones in health care two decades ago running Oxford Health Plans, a company he describes as being a mix between Castlight and Oscar. Today, Wiggins is chairman of Remedy Partners, a company that’s offering itself to providers as go-between in managing bundled payments from CMS. “We’re the cheapest way into the pro-gram,” Wiggins tells Breaking Health Host Steve Krupa in this week’s podcast. “It would cost a provider anywhere between 4-5% on these bundles to manage them themselves.” Remedy Partners, which manages $5 billion in payments, is able to do the same job for less. Hear Wiggins’ unique take on how companies like Remedy can help fix health care.
