Itasca, IL (June 5, 2019) – Discovery Health Partners today announced that Subrahmanyam Mantha has joined the Discovery leadership team as Vice President, Payment Optimization. In this new role, Mantha will tap into his more than 20 years of managed healthcare and payment integrity experience to help Discovery’s clients better control costs associated with incorrect billing and overpaid claims and to improve health plans’ administrative and medical loss ratios.
“Expanding our payment integrity offerings is an important part of our growth strategy, and Mantha will play a key leadership role in making that happen,” stated Discovery CEO Jason Brown. “With this new payment optimization executive role and our recent acquisition of HealthMind, Discovery is demonstrating that we are fully committed to delivering the best pre- and post-payment optimization results for our customers.”
“Discovery has a stellar reputation for being a leader in subrogation, COB and premium restoration, and I’ve seen how they’ve aggressively been expanding their payment integrity footprint,” stated Mantha. “I am thrilled to be a part of growing this strategic business line and to be a part of a company with such a promising future.”

Before assuming the leadership role for payment optimization at Discovery, Mantha spent more than 20 years in a variety of operations and leadership roles supporting managed care organizations and building payment integrity programs. Most recently, Mantha led the development and deployment of prepay analytics solutions for a large global payment integrity company, supporting several top-10 health plans. Prior to that, Mantha was Senior Vice President at SCIO Health Analytics, where he delivered analytics solutions to support Payment Integrity operations, healthcare analytics, and global delivery operations.
