About Hopscotch Primary Care

At Hopscotch Primary Care, we believe great healthcare should be accessible to all people across all communities. Today, almost 20% of Americans live in a rural community, yet only 11% of physicians practice in those same communities. We are on a mission to transform healthcare in rural America. We provide high-quality primary care tailored to meet the needs of our patients through our robust care model and comprehensive care team, delivering care in our clinics, and across settings, and wrapping resources around the patients who need them most.

Our patients and the care teams who serve them sit at the center of everything we do at Hopscotch. Hopscotch Primary Care takes a team approach to serve patient needs and provide the best care possible. Our goal is to provide the care each of us would want for ourselves or for our family members, in the right setting, and at the right time.

Today, we are serving thousands of patients in our value-based care model and the number is growing every day. If you want to bring your experience, skill and passion to make a lasting impact in healthcare, we’d like to meet you.

About the Role

The Director, Network & Value-based Care will be responsible for leading and executing Hopscotch’s network and value-based care strategy, leveraging deep working knowledge of Medicare-focused VBC models and general network operations and collaborating cross-functionally across Population Health, Finance, and Operations to optimize contract performance.

Specifically, this role will negotiate, execute, and manage Medicare-focused VBC contracts; set the network management strategy (e.g., whether to participate with specific payers); manage payer relationships; and bring solutions to optimize performance in VBC contracts across key contract levers, including but not limited to shared risk, carve outs, and relevant elements (e.g., attribution, quality cut points, etc.). This is an exciting opportunity to build a critical function at Hopscotch and collaborate cross-functionally to drive best-in-class results.

  • Negotiate and execute network and value-based care contracts; implement contracts and manage ongoing payer relationships
  • Develop management process around payer contracting and Hopscotch's cross-functional dependencies (e.g., quality, attribution, utilization management, etc.) to ensure performance and contract requirements are met
  • Review payer data and derive insights around key levers for contract performance, including but not limited to payer market data, patient attribution, and membership growth; bring solutions to internal teams and payers based on insights
  • Analyze financial and operational implications of existing and future payer contracts, quantifying and communicating risks and opportunities to leadership
  • Identify workflow improvement opportunities to optimize value-based contract performance and see through until completion
  • Own health plan relationships with the mindset of a “business owner”; proactively identify value-add opportunities for improved performance and strategic partnerships
  • Collaborate cross-functionally with teams across Hopscotch, including Operations, Population Health, and Finance to maximize Hopscotch’s performance in value-based care contracts
  • Serve as subject matter expert on relevant payer dynamics; monitor and evaluate industry news and regulatory changes for impacts to payer strategy and reimbursement
