Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Virginia has partnered with value-based physician platform Aledade to expand access to primary care for more than 150,000 Medicaid beneficiaries across Virginia.
Aledade supports physicians and their practices by helping to grow ACOs and value-based care models. The partnership with Anthem will impact more than 80 practices, 15 health centers and 25 rural health clinics across Virginia, and also covers Medicare Advantage and commercially insured members, according to a Nov. 30 news release.
Aledade is partnered with 15 of Virginia's 26 community health centers and supports care for more than 90 percent of Anthem's CHC members in the state. Elevance, Anthem's parent company, has partnered with Aledade previously, along with Cigna, CareFirst BCBS and Humana.
