Lark CEO to Speak on Diabetes Costs in Medicare Advantage Populations

Lark founder and CEO, Julia Hu, will speak at the 2019 BMA Medicare Advantage Summit hosted by Better Medicare Alliance. Speaking on Diabetes Prevention and Management in MA-age populations, Hu said the following in a recent interview: “A number of recent accomplishments have helped to unlock Lark’s entrance into Medicare Advantage, starting with our research showing Lark’s effectiveness among an older population. There is a real problem right now because there are several studies that show Medicare reimbursements are barely covering the cost of care, but you’ve got this population that really needs help,” Hu said.

Other speakers this year include Larry J. Merlo is President and CEO of CVS Health, and Bruce D. Broussard, President and CEO of Humana.
