VP, MRA and Stars

Steven Gallegos Cooke brings many years of healthcare experience, specifically in government-sponsored programs like Medicare, Medicaid, and ACA, to Somatus. He has both built and led Risk Adjustment and Quality programs for large and small Medicare Advantage plans, including Anthem and BCBS of MA. Steve has expertise in Risk Adjustment and Quality measures, critical as CMS has directed a move from traditional fee-for-service to value-based care. Additionally, Steve has experience in consulting with healthcare technology start-ups, driving market development and strategy.

Steve began his career in academic research with The National Institutes of Health and Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He holds degrees in sports medicine and in biology.

Steve is a dedicated dad to his son and daughter and lives in Cambridge, MA with his partner, two teenage stepdaughters, and two rambunctious pups. He is an avid runner, working on a consecutive run-streak of over 1300 days, and looks forward to applying this energy to driving success for Somatus and the patients we serve.
