This is a transcription of a recorded video presentation made available to employees of GuideWell Mutual Holding Corporation on September 3, 2021.

Patrick Geraghty, President & CEO of GuideWell Mutual Holding Corporation:

Hi, everyone. Last week, we announced that GuideWell is acquiring Triple-S Management, the Blue Cross and Blue Shield plan of Puerto Rico. Thank you to those of you who joined me during last week’s Town Hall, where Triple-S’s president and CEO Bobby Garcia-Rodriquez joined me to talk about the benefits of this combination.

This is a very exciting opportunity for GuideWell. As I shared last week, Triple S and GuideWell have complementary capabilities and expertise. Together, we believe we will be well equipped to drive improved health outcomes, affordability, access and health equity.

By joining forces with Triple-S, we’ll add strength and scale that will help us be an even stronger partner to our diverse communities.

Triple-S has the most membership of any plan in Puerto Rico, serving 1 million consumers. They have a strong Medicare Advantage business and a leading position in Medicaid and commercial markets. This acquisition will further accelerate Florida Blue’s growth in Medicare Advantage and across all lines of business in Florida’s rapidly growing Puerto Rican and Hispanic populations.

We also think Triple-S is an ideal fit from a cultural perspective. Like us, Triple-S is deeply connected to their communities and committed to improving key drivers of health.

Triple-S’s cultural understanding of the Puerto Rican and Hispanic communities will be particularly valuable to us as we build on GuideWell’s outstanding reputation as a trusted partner and community champion.

For me, one of the most thrilling parts of this announcement has been learning about how many of YOU actually have ties to Triple-S. Many of you have shared that you previously worked for Triple-S and that you highly respect their organization.

Good things happen when you align yourself with those who share your values, goals and mission. I can’t wait to see what we’re able to accomplish with Triple-S joining the GuideWell family.
