COO, CareMore Health
Schulte has been COO of CareMore Health since 2017. She leads physician-engagement strategies and delivery operations that support the national expansion of the integrated system's brand and oversees business operations across CareMore markets. Last year, Schulte led an initiative to expand the system's service area in Southern California and Virginia. Her successful negotiations with a major provider in California, for instance, expanded options for patients to receive services at large medical group practices. In the past year, CareMore, a subsidiary of Anthem, has grown from operating in six states to eight and now covers more than 150,000 Medicare, Medicaid and dually eligible beneficiaries.
