2023 Power 25 Health Care: Lou Gianquinto

Lou Gianquinto is among the insurance executives who believe in the value of virtual care — especially coming out of the pandemic, which taught people that some medical visits can be done remotely.

In August, Gianquinto announced that his company — Anthem, the state’s largest health plan that covers more than 1 million people in Connecticut — would begin offering Anthem Link Virtual First services to eligible members in certain commercial health plans.

It gives individuals access to virtual care options, including a symptom checker driven by artificial intelligence, routine wellness care, chronic condition management and behavioral health care.

The service, accessed via health app Sydney Health, will be available to eligible members enrolled in Anthem’s large group, fully insured and self-funded plans starting Jan. 1, 2024.

Gianquinto was named president of Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Connecticut in November 2020.

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

He also held several jobs in the Connecticut insurance industry at UnitedHealthcare and Oxford Health Plans.
