Please join us in welcoming Janet Pogar, RVP of Provider Solutions at Anthem BCBS, for our MDAHU April breakfast. Janet will discuss with us how the move to “limited or high performance” networks has impacted health care costs and access.  She will also cover out-of-network claims, while at in-network provider, hospital, surgery center or emergency room.  Small group vs. level- or self-funded, and when CO Network Adequacy laws apply.  Other topics covered will be facility fees, narrow networks, referrals, and has all of this actually influenced the cost and quality of care? 

Speaker: Janet Pogar is a true Colorado native, born and raised in Pueblo, Colorado. Janet has a passion for continuing to reduce the cost of health care and has worked on all sides of the delivery system – including hospital, physician and health plan. Janet’s career has included working with several physician organizations in Colorado Springs and Denver, including Physician’s Network (IPA) and their associated (and only physician owned, at the time) HMO in Colorado Springs overseeing the operations of both the IPA’s and HMO. Since re-joining Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield in 1999, Janet has held a statewide Director, and now Regional Vice President role and oversees all hospital, physician, ambulatory surgery centers and ancillary negotiations as well as numerous operational functions including credentialing, analytics, payment innovation and payment for value in the Colorado market.
