EPISODE 193: Pieninck says putting the care first is crucial for COVID patients locally

    During our quest to learn more about medicine, hospitals, insurance and how COVID-19 is affecting every aspect of our society, we reached to CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield President and C.E.O. Brian Pieninck to lead us through some education about navigating a system that can be daunting for many afflicted by all of the fallout of the pandemic.

    We learned a ton from Pieninck about how the medical system is trying to rapidly deal with all of the unprecedented challenges of this crisis for our society. Chances are you have something in your wallet with their logo on it and hope to never have to use it. But if you ever do, this chat will help your journey.

    Clearly, a lot has changed and it’s happening very quickly – and crisis management has become the key role for all us during the pandemic.

    We are all in this together and this is a time to educate, unite and keep each other safe. But we also have some extra time to read and learn and educate ourselves in many ways.

    We will continue to produce high-quality, intelligent conversations with thought leaders throughout this pandemic at Baltimore Positive. And we expect to do it at a rapid pace so stick with us and subscribe!

    Like all others, we have halted a “live schedule” and will continue to launch our chats as we have them during this crisis. Expect more than less.

    Because of the election moving to June 2nd, we will be having more of the mayoral candidates back to Baltimore Positive to discuss all of the current issues and the additional five weeks of virtual campaigning for the hopefuls.

    Please subscribe to Baltimore Positive and stay with us.
