The BMA 2019 Medicare Advantage Summit has announced Megan Callahan, VP of Healthcare at Lyft, as a keynote speaker. Megan is scheduled to speak to attendees at the general session on the first day of the conference, July 22, at 10:30 a.m. 


Callahan was hired by Lyft, a leading transportation network company, to grow its expansive health care business. Lyft is an industry leader in helping patients get rides to non-emergency medical appointments, partnering with 9 of the  10 largest health systems in the US, the top 10 non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) brokers and the top 5 payers to provide rides across the continuum of care. 

Callahan’s keynote remarks will highlight the role of transportation, and rideshare in particular, in improving lives and reimagining the Medicare Advantage member experience. Megan will be joined by Dr. Trent Haywood, President and Chief Medical Officer of the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, to discuss how improving access to transportation can reduce the cost of care, enhance health outcomes and improve the member experience.

“BMA is delighted to have Megan Callahan join us as a keynote speaker. By requesting a ride for patients with a touch of a button, Medicare Advantage plans can not only improve access to clinical care but also address the broader social determinants of health that enable patients with chronic conditions to live healthier lives.” said Allyson Y. Schwartz, BMA President and CEO.
