Centene Corporation has announced the appointment of Alice Hm Chen, MD (pictured above), as an Executive Forum co-chair of the Health Care Payment Learning & Action Network (LAN), an organization of public and private healthcare leaders that seeks to accelerate the adoption of alternative payment models.

Chen has also served as Centene’s chief health officer since December 2022.

“The LAN is fortunate to have Dr. Chen, one of healthcare’s brightest and most innovative thinkers, as a co-chair on the Executive Forum,” said Dr. Mark McClellan, LAN co-chair. “She has been a leader in developing and implementing multi-payer initiatives and in helping Californians access more affordable, quality care. Her knowledge and expertise in developing these strategies will be a tremendous asset to the LAN as we continue to take actionable steps to move toward high-quality, accountable, person-centered care for all.”

Chen has been actively involved with the LAN, Centene said. She serves on the Health Equity Advisory Team and has spoken at several annual LAN summits on quality and equity measurement and multi-payer alignment in California.

“I am honored to join Dr. McClellan and this prestigious group of healthcare leaders as we continue to invest in innovations to promote value-based care, particularly in Medicaid,” Chen said. “Only by coming together as purchasers, payers and providers will we be able to ensure that everyone has access to high-quality, affordable care.”

Centene recently announced the appointments of Anika Gardenhire as chief customer experience officer and Tanya McNally as chief people officer.
