Saint Thomas Health's accountable care organization MissionPoint Health Partners is expanding into employer contracts, according to Modern Healthcare.
The Nashville-based ACO already managed a number of Medicare Share Savings Programs and partnerships with insurers, such as BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee.
"Now MissionPoint is marketing its network and care- and cost-management services to large employers in Evansville, Ind., Birmingham and Mobile in Alabama, and the FLorida cities of Pensacola and Jacksonville," Modern Healthcare reports.
St. Louis-based Ascension is also targeting employers through its acquisition of Michigan health plan U.S. Health and Life Insurance Co. in February.
