Scoop: Venture firms' latest $300M Medicare Advantage bet
Virginia-based AllyAlign Health, a Medicare Advantage insurance company focused on senior housing, just raised a nearly $300 million funding round led by New Enterprise Associates.
NEA officials said they were interested in targeting the quality of care coordination in senior living facilities using value-based care and tech-enabled tools seen in other care models.
- "This is addressing a massive gap in care that the pandemic has exposed," Mohamad Makhzoumi, head of NEA's Global Healthcare Investing practice told Axios.
AllyAlign is still a relatively small company operating in 22 states with 24 Medicare Advantage Organizations and about 12,000 members.
- The growth round included participation from Oak HC/FT, Town Hall Ventures, and existing investors Heritage Group and Ziegler.
- Mark Price — formerly president of the Nevada region for Intermountain Healthcare, with previous senior leadership roles at DaVita, ChenMed, and Bain and Co. — was named CEO.
