As the founder of Optumas, Steve is responsible for the design, development, and implementation of health care reform projects across the country. Steve’s expertise is in developing innovative health care purchasing strategies for large health care purchasers that address not only who has access to health insurance (addressing the under-insured as well as the uninsured), but also how health care is provided to all individuals and groups in a given health care marketplace. Steve’s primary responsibility for his clients is strategy development, risk management and analysis, public and expert witness testimony, and communications and messaging.
Steve lives in Paradise Valley with his wife Sara, and two children, Hailey and Patrick. As an avid cyclist, Steve enjoys getting outdoors and taking charge of his health; he strives to instill the same mentality in others, for the betterment and health of the community.
