2021 Power 25 Health Care: Lou Gianquinto

Lou Gianquinto leads the state’s largest health plan.

He was named president of Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Connecticut in Nov. 2020, replacing Jill Hummel, a well-respected insurance executive who spent seven years in the same role.

Leading Anthem’s Connecticut business is a bit of a homecoming for Gianquinto. He’s got strong ties to the state having graduated from Southern Connecticut State University and earned an MBA from the University of New Haven.

He also held several jobs in the Connecticut insurance industry at companies including UnitedHealthcare and Oxford Health Plans, where he led initiatives to improve quality, manage costs and increase affordability.

Most recently he served as president of Missouri Care, Anthem’s Medicaid business in Missouri.

As he works to protect Anthem’s wide market share lead in the state, he said one of his top priorities is to advance more value-based contracts with providers that pay doctors and hospitals more based on performance rather than a fee-for-service model.

In September Anthem announced a new agreement with Hartford HealthCare that makes a shift toward value-driven healthcare programs by increasing the focus on primary and preventative care.
