Dr. McCoy is a physician, entrepreneur, and communicator who is passionate about improving the way healthcare is delivered. In his time as president of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas, he was instrumental in the creation of the C1 Innovation Lab in Dallas, with the goal of uniting clinicians, members, advocates, and innovators to work together to generate solutions. Dr. McCoy’s previous roles at BCBSTX included divisional senior vice president of the Texas market strategy, and Texas plan chief medical officer. During his term as president (2016-2020), BCBSTX experienced the largest growth in membership, underwriting margin and revenue in the company’s 90-year history.
“I’m excited about the opportunity to contribute to the already great work of Catapult Health,” said Dr. McCoy. “I’ve watched them from their early days and have always been impressed with how well they’ve focused on the patient, while being nimble and responsive to major changes in the healthcare environment.”
“I’ve known and worked with Dr. McCoy for the better part of a decade, and now is the perfect time for him to join our team,” said Michel. “Over the past year, we created and launched the nation’s first VirtualCheckup®, leveraging our world-class clinical expertise, sophisticated technology, and ability to scale up quickly. Dr. McCoy’s skills and experiences are very well matched with our go-forward strategy.”
