Houston's integrated delivery networks have numerous new specialty care designations and service expansions to stay competitive in a rapidly growing, and aging, market. Payer and provider tensions are intensifying as contract standoffs force hundreds of thousands of patients out-of-network and possibly out of therapy regimens. The retail health space is gaining visibility in Houston alongside telemedicine, which may continue to see a spike in utilization even after COVID-19. Overall, the market remains ripe for partnerships, risk-based contracts, and new health insurance players, particularly those in Houston’s accelerating Medicare Advantage space.
