OVERLAND PARK, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SelectQuote, Inc. (NYSE: SLQT) continues to introduce its robust business of Medicare customers to the advantages of Population Health. As such, the platform has added a new partnership with Thriveworks, a leading mental healthcare provider, to provide behavioral health and medication management services, both virtually and in-person nationwide.
“As we continue to grow SelectQuote’s Medicare business, Population Health is becoming a popular platform for customers because it offers many different services that they have expressed needs for over the past several years in one place. It also allows SelectQuote to deepen its relationship with Medicare customers even more,” said Bob Grant, President of SelectQuote’s Senior Division. “Being able to add a company like Thriveworks enhances our Population Health platform to support seniors in meeting all of their healthcare needs from primary care to behavioral health to medication management and adherence.”
Approximately 46% of current Population Health members have identified a need for behavioral health services based on the thousands of Health Risk Assessments (HRAs) that Customer Success Agents (CSAs) have delivered since the business launch. To help members fulfill this impactful area of need, SelectQuote sought out market-leading behavioral health organizations for collaboration and alignment. This partnership gives Population Health members access to Thriveworks’ top-quality behavioral health and medication management services virtually and in over 300 locations.
“We’re on a mission to help people lead happy and successful lives. Our partnership with SelectQuote’s Population Health will expand Thriveworks’ ability to provide quality care to people how and where they want it,” said David Drap, SVP of Employer Partnerships at Thriveworks.
Population Health’s platform currently includes partners in value-based primary care, non-emergency medical appointment transportation, behavioral health and wellness, in-home care and prescription drugs through an in-house medication management pharmacy, SelectRx.

Although we believe that the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements are reasonable as of the date made, actual results may prove to be materially different from the results expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements.
Our actual results to differ materially from those indicated in these forward-looking statements due to a number of important factors, including, but not limited to, the following: the ultimate duration and impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic; our reliance on a limited number of insurance carrier partners and any potential termination of those relationships or failure to develop new relationships; existing and future laws and regulations affecting the health insurance market; changes in health insurance products offered by our insurance carrier partners and the health insurance market generally; insurance carriers offering products and services directly to consumers; changes to commissions paid by insurance carriers and underwriting practices; competition with brokers, exclusively online brokers and carriers who opt to sell policies directly to consumers; competition from government-run health insurance exchanges; developments in the U.S. health insurance system; our dependence on revenue from carriers in our senior segment and downturns in the senior health as well as life, automotive and home insurance industries; our ability to develop new offerings and penetrate new vertical markets; risks from third-party products; failure to enroll individuals during the Medicare annual enrollment period; our ability to attract, integrate and retain qualified personnel; our dependence on lead providers and ability to compete for leads; failure to obtain and/or convert sales leads to actual sales of insurance policies; access to data from consumers and insurance carriers; accuracy of information provided from and to consumers during the insurance shopping process; cost-effective advertisement through internet search engines; ability to contact consumers and market products by telephone; global economic conditions; disruption to operations as a result of future acquisitions; significant estimates and assumptions in the preparation of our financial statements; impairment of goodwill; potential litigation and claims, including IP litigation; our existing and future indebtedness; developments with respect to LIBOR; access to additional capital; failure to protect our intellectual property and our brand; fluctuations in our financial results caused by seasonality; accuracy and timeliness of commissions reports from insurance carriers; timing of insurance carriers’ approval and payment practices; factors that impact our estimate of the constrained lifetime value of commissions per policyholder; changes in accounting rules, tax legislation and other legislation; disruptions or failures of our technological infrastructure and platform; failure to maintain relationships with third-party service providers; cybersecurity breaches or other attacks involving our systems or those of our insurance carrier partners or third-party service providers; our ability to protect consumer information and other data; and failure to market and sell Medicare plans effectively or in compliance with laws.
