Delivering on the Promise of Value-Based Care


The story of Lumeris began when a physician group formed Essence Healthcare, a fully insured Medicare Advantage plan in the St. Louis area. Since welcoming our first members in 2004, Essence Healthcare has developed a robust, patient-first clinical model that has driven strong financial results and has been consistently rated a 5-Star plan by CMS. In 2011 we brought this proven model to the market as Lumeris, serving as a co-operating, risk-sharing partner with health systems and physician groups.
