Executive Spotlight: Lyn Amor Macaraeg, Vice President, Legal Services

Lyn Amor Macaraeg HeadshotOur Executive Spotlight shines on Lyn  Amor Macaraeg this month.  Lyn joined agilon health in May 2019 as our Vice President, Legal Services. Let’s get to know Lyn a little better.

Please tell us about your role and responsibilities with agilon health.

I lead the legal department for agilon health and in so doing, I partner with agilon health business leaders to provide legal guidance and advice to support and facilitate agilon health’s pursuit of its business objectives, address legal matters, manage risk, facilitate transactions, and ultimately defend, protect and advocate for the interests of the company.

What are some of the most important changes you have seen in the healthcare environment impacting our business? How have we adjusted?

The healthcare industry has been evolving toward value-based care for some time, but adoption has been slow for various reasons.  agilon health’s innovative model aligns incentives across the healthcare delivery continuum and is a powerful tool to accelerate the transition to value-based care, with the goal of improving quality of care for many Medicare Advantage members, and effectively managing health care costs.

Looking back, what has been your proudest moment here at agilon health?

When I joined agilon health, there was no internal legal department function at all.  In just a year, we have established legal processes and procedures, and we have hired a lean and high performing legal team that takes great pride in supporting agilon health’s exponential growth, and fast paced environment.

Which of our #ONEteam Core Values resonates with you the most and why?

Accountability / Integrity – The Legal Department strongly believes in doing the right thing even when it is hard to do so, all in the spirit of protecting the interests of the company.
