DocGo, a leading provider of last-mile mobile health services and integrated medical transportation solutions, announced today it has executed a multi-year contract to provide mobile health services to Empire BlueCross BlueShield members, covering commercial, Medicare and Medicaid populations in New York. Empire, an affiliated health plan of Anthem, Inc., is the largest health insurer in New York and has been servicing residents for more than 85 years. With this new contract, DocGo has the potential to reach an additional 4.5 million people with its range of in-home mobile health services, including preventative care, urgent episodic care and chronic care management services.

With a mission to bring care to patients when and where they need it most, especially in their homes, DocGo aligns with Empire’s primary mission: to materially and measurably improve the health of all New Yorkers.
“Broadening the reach of our mobile health services and virtual-first offerings to include millions of new people in New York is a clear demonstration of our continued growth and momentum,” said Anthony Capone, President of DocGo. “We look forward to helping make quality healthcare more convenient and accessible for even more patients.”
“As part of our mission to improve the health of New Yorkers, we continue to prioritize solutions that meet the need for convenient, safe, quality, and affordable care,” said Jordan Vidor, RVP, Provider Solutions and Network Strategy, Empire BlueCross BlueShield. “Our new relationship with DocGo will help us make it easier for New Yorkers to find and access care from home if and when they need it. This is another example of how we’re adding consumer-centric offerings that give our members options for accessing care in ways that work for them.”
