Boscarino brings 20-plus years of health plan provider network and payer strategy experience at Aetna, Anthem, Yale New Haven Health, and Maxim Healthcare

MENLO PARK, Calif., March 14, 2022  First Mile Care (, a preventative chronic care company whose mission is to halve the number of Americans with type 2 diabetes by 2028, has expanded its executive team to include Salvatore Boscarino in the new role of Chief Commercial Officer (CCO). 

“We are delighted to welcome an executive of Sal’s caliber to First Mile Care as Chief Commercial Officer,” said founder and CEO Karl Ronn. “He is a seasoned healthcare executive with a proven track record of working successfully with national payers, integrated health systems, and third-party administrators. He’s passionate about developing and executing innovative commercialization strategies that will serve First Mile Care well as we expand rapidly into additional US markets.”

Boscarino’s deep healthcare expertise includes previous leadership positions at Anthem, Aetna, Yale New Haven Health, Community Health Network of Connecticut, and Maxim Healthcare Services. Most recently, he served as vice president of national contracting for Beacon Health Options. Boscarino has decades of experience managing contractual relationships between providers and national payers and has worked through the transition of health plan/provider arrangements from fee-for-service to fee-for-value.

“As the record number of Americans with prediabetes continues to increase, First Mile Care must accelerate the reach of its type 2 diabetes prevention program (DPP),” said Boscarino. “From billing and health policies to credentialing, contracting, and regulatory compliance, healthcare is a complicated industry.  I’m honored to join First Mile Care’s leadership team to continue building on the sustainable offering that provides patients with the interventions they need, all while addressing quality outcomes, physician integration, cost containment, and social determinants of health.” 

Prediabetes, which affects 96 million adult Americans —more than one in three adults— is reversible if caught before it turns into type 2 diabetes. By creating a national network of DPP certified coaches who help people with prediabetes develop small, sustainable habit changes, First Mile Care is taking the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) Diabetes Prevention Program to the next level and democratizing program access to underserved populations. DPP is clinically proven to reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 58% (71% for those over age 60).
