CU Trust is taking its commitment a step further

 

The University of Colorado (CU), CU Medicine and UCHealth formed the University of Colorado Health and Welfare Trust (CU Trust) in 2010 to help mitigate the rising costs of health care, tailor health plans to specific needs based on evidence-based approaches to health care, and emphasize a commitment to wellness.

 

CU Trust is taking its commitment a step further by entering into a Management Services Organization (MSO) agreement with UCHealth Integrated Network. Effective July 1, 2018, UCHealth Integrated Network will provide population health services to the three employer groups in the CU Trust. The agreement focuses on enhanced services that will improve quality, reduce cost and enrich the patient experience for employees and their dependents.

 

 

Below are the applicable product lines selected by each of the employer groups. These product lines are administered by the CU Trust’s third party administrator–Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield.

 

 

“We believe UCHealth Integrated Network is uniquely positioned to deliver enhanced population health services that would support these employer groups in achieving their mission,” says Kelly Henry, senior director, payer strategies and value-based contracting at UCHealth Integrated Network. “Many of our providers will contribute to this endeavor, and we look forward to everyone’s collective participation and impact.”

 

Planning is underway for the CU Trust program rollout in July 1, 2018. If you have any questions, please call Kelly Henry at 720.553.1643 or send an email to kelly.henry@uchealth.org.
