KEPRO and Consonance Capital Partners acquires APS Healthcare from Universal American

KEPRO, in partnership with private equity fund Consonance Capital Partners, has acquired APS Healthcare from Universal American.

The combination will enhance KEPRO’s ability to provide a comprehensive and high quality set of service offerings through an integrated approach to medical management – an area that will continue to experience strong growth as a result of shifting reimbursement models and changing regulatory requirements. The company’s wide breadth of services will continue to include member centric care management solutions, physical and behavioural health utilisation management, employee assistance and absence management programs, as well as other offerings such as pre-admission screening and resident reviews.

Joseph Dougher, President and Chief Executive Officer of KEPRO, says: “APS Healthcare has built a reputation as a leader in medical management and together, KEPRO and APS Healthcare are dedicated to providing additional value through differentiated programs that truly meet our customers’ specific needs. The culture and values of both companies are well aligned, and APS Healthcare will bring a wealth of expertise to the combined company. We are excited to partner with APS Healthcare to continue to provide outcomes-focused solutions to reduce unnecessary healthcare utilisation and optimise care quality for all of our customers.”

Stephen McKenna, Managing Partner of Consonance Capital Partners, says: “APS Healthcare has a long history of providing customers with high quality services that help improve outcomes while lowering costs, and I am confident that the complementary industry-leading expertise KEPRO brings will enable the combined company to continue to grow and further solidify its longstanding commitment to its customers.”
