COVID-19 – Our Plans for Safety and Business Continuity

Our hearts go out to the individuals, businesses and communities that have been affected by COVID-19. In response to the increasing number of cases and uncertainty felt at home and around the world, we want to make you aware of the precautions Payer Compass is taking to protect the health and safety of our employees, their families, our clients and our communities while maintaining a consistent level of client service. As we continue to monitor the activity and impact of COVID-19, we encourage you to refer to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for your own awareness and protection.

Client services and remote work

Payer Compass is making every effort to ensure that this situation will not affect the timeliness or quality of the work we are doing for you.

We are proud to have robust technology in place that enables our employees to efficiently and effectively provide client service remotely if they are unable to report to our offices. Remote working guidelines have been established for each of our lines of business to help ensure we meet deadlines and deliver our work to you.

We will tailor our approach to meet your specific needs, and we will adjust and communicate with you as circumstances change. If you have any questions or concerns about your engagement, please reach out to your Client Service contact.

Health and safety

The health and safety of our employees, their families, our clients and our communities is of critical importance to Payer Compass.

We have advised employees who are ill or who have family in their homes who are exhibiting any symptoms of respiratory illness or fever not to report to our offices. If they feel well enough, they may work remotely. We recognize that if employees are not well, they may also need to take time off to manage their health needs.

We are also following strict quarantine rules in alignment with the most up-to-date CDC guidance for employees who have been (and those who have family members who live in their homes who have been) in contact with someone who has been exposed to or diagnosed with COVID-19 and those who have traveled outside the country.

Additional efforts and concern are also being directed towards employees who are at a higher risk of contracting or suffering complications from COVID-19 and those who are affected by school and childcare center closures.

Finally, we have instituted additional cleaning protocols for our offices to help keep them healthy and safe for our people and our clients.

Travel and meetings

Payer Compass has suspended all non-essential domestic travel through April 15, 2020.

We have asked leaders to evaluate all events and meetings through April 15 and make prudent decisions on whether to hold them or cancel in alignment with our travel guidance and circumstances in our local offices and communities. Additional guidance for travel and meetings will be determined and provided as events warrant.

Spectrum Equity Leads Majority Recapitalization of Payer Compass

Plano, Jan. 4, 2019 – Payer Compass, a leading provider of healthcare reimbursement technology and price transparency solutions, announced today that it has received a significant investment from Spectrum Equity, a growth equity firm focused on the information economy, and Health Enterprise Partners (HEP), a healthcare-focused investment firm. This investment positions Payer Compass to continue its rapid growth while further extending its comprehensive product offering serving health plans, self-insured employer groups, third-party administrators and brokers.

Payer Compass’ core software platform VISIUM™ is a purpose-built healthcare pricing engine and contract management system focused on addressing the complexities of Medicare, Medicaid and Commercial claims pricing. With the rise of healthcare costs and shift to self-funded plans, Payer Compass enables employer groups and health plans to realize significant cost savings by utilizing a Medicare-based reimbursement method as it is more closely tied to the true cost of providing care.

“We are extremely proud of the success Payer Compass has achieved to date as we have grown the company to serve over 125 payer customers, representing nearly 1,000 employer groups and over two million covered lives. We are excited to partner with Spectrum and HEP as their experience scaling leading healthcare technology companies will allow us to take advantage of the large market opportunity in front of us in broader healthcare cost containment and price transparency,” said Payer Compass CEO Greg Everett. “We are seeing rapid adoption of our solutions across key markets given the growth of government-sponsored healthcare and reference-based pricing and will continue to see expanding use cases for our unique pricing technology going forward.”

“We are thrilled to partner with Payer Compass as the company continues to scale rapidly and impact more of the cost containment landscape,” said Jeff Haywood, Managing Director at Spectrum Equity. “The company’s proprietary pricing technology and data are highly unique resulting in more accurate pricing, increased auditability and greater provider acceptance.” Steve LeSieur, Managing Director at Spectrum, added, “Payer Compass sits squarely at the intersection of several key investment themes for Spectrum within healthcare as the company’s platform addresses the rising costs of healthcare faced by self-insured employer groups and health plans as well as the fundamental need for greater healthcare price transparency. We look forward to working with Payer Compass management to expand the company’s go-to-market and product efforts to fully capitalize on this growing opportunity.”

As part of this transaction, Jeff Haywood, Steve LeSieur and Michael Radonich from Spectrum Equity, as well as David Tamburri from HEP, will join Payer Compass’ Board of Directors.
