Jonathan Mayhew -- Chief Executive Officer

Good afternoon, everyone. Thanks for joining us. During the second quarter, we made important progress on our growth initiatives to expand our addressable market and our value proposition. Our journey to become a truly consumer-centric organization is now underway, and I and the management team have been on a listening tour with Ontrak customers, prospects, providers, and members, and I'll share some of my learnings with you momentarily.

Our second-quarter total revenue was $26.5 million, an increase of 54% compared to the same period in 2020 due to the strong growth in our government lines of business. We are just getting started on our journey to engage not only care-avoidant but also care-seeking individuals and to broaden our reach within Medicare, Medicaid, commercial, and at-risk provider groups. Regarding our outlook for the remainder of the year, we are reiterating our revenue guidance of $80 million to $85 million. While we saw some high-cost members dropping below their medical expense threshold during the quarter due to the lingering lower utilization, which resulted in a slight decline in our effective outreach pool, we expect a commensurate rebound in the second half of 2021.

I would now like to provide an update and what we've learned from the customer prospect and provider listening tour and give you a sense of their feedback on our growth initiatives. At the core of our strategy is the continued development of a whole person health, coach supported, and AI-enabled identification and engagement system. First, our customers find it difficult to engage high-cost, high-acuity individuals who do not generally see care. Most of us find the U.S.

healthcare system difficult to navigate. Imagine how much more challenging it is for the individuals with behavioral health conditions and chronic disease, those who suffer from anxiety, depression, and substance use disorder, are likely to have six or more chronic conditions that cause severe mental and physical pain. They face a host of socioeconomic, medical, and health system barriers that cause the severity of their disease, their receptivity to care, and their medical cost profile to change over time. Ontrak finds those who have fallen through the cracks.

Our proven experience in managing claims data using our AI and predictive analytics to impute behavioral health conditions allows us to identify those who would most benefit from care. This is uniquely valuable to our customers and prospects because these complex cases drive 44% of medical cost according to a recent Milliman study. These individuals tend not to proactively engage with healthcare programs, whether digitally, telephonically, or in person. We will deepen an Ontrak core competency, namely the timely identification and engagement of these most vulnerable members so that we can support readiness for change in more individuals.

We will continue to invest in machine learning models that identify those who are most suitable for behavioral health interventions and assess the underlying needs so that we can align those needs with the right amount and the right type of care. We're also continuously retraining our model to identify and predict members likely to have a change in the severity of their disease and cost profile over time. Second, our customers and prospects need partners who can screen and monitor those who may not have a diagnosed behavioral health condition. Ontrak provides deep human engagement in AI-enabled eligibility assessments based on 14 years of experience in caring for the most complex behavioral health populations.

From a care pathway standpoint, we have continued to refine program eligibility in our process for screening and assessments. We've increased the alignment between behavioral health and social needs by administering screening such as PHQ-9s and social determinants of health assessments that help us understand risk factors and how we can heighten upfront engagement and clinical support. The more deeply we understand each person's medical and behavioral needs, the better we can match them in a timely way to the right care pathway. Customers and providers value our measurement-based care, check-ins, monitoring, and follow-up assessments because these are integration opportunities with primary care physicians, providers, medical programs, community support programs, and value-based measures.

Third, customers and providers want individuals with behavioral health conditions to complete treatment. Those suffering from behavioral health conditions often face insurmountable barriers in between their clinical visits, which makes treatments complex. Together, the member and their Ontrak care coach embark on a customized care pathway, specifically curated for the members' needs and supported by dozens of meaningful connections with their Ontrak care couch during the course of treatment. We advocate for members and connect them to what matters most in their lives, whether that's a therapist who specializes in PTSD, help with transportation, or finding a local church who can bring food to the members' home.

This ensures that the members are more likely to have the capacity and the receptivity to meet with their providers who lead their treatment. As I mentioned a moment ago, the healthcare system is intensely difficult for those with behavioral health disorders and chronic diseases. Fourth, the debate about the effectiveness of a digital versus human experience is a false dichotomy. The power of both should be embraced because there are times when high-tech tools can motivate an individual to manage their health, weight loss, for example.

And there are times when high-touch human contact is crucial, suicide ideation, for example. What matters is engagement. When individuals are engaged in their care, they get well. The Ontrak engagement program, which can last up to 12 months, delivers durable clinical and economic outcomes for those who are hardest to reach and engage.

We use multiple channels and personalize our approach to engage members at the right time and the right place with the right message, whether that's online, offline, or both. Our treatment effect study shows that Ontrak members are still benefiting from the program 24 months after enrollment. Customers are interested in our ability to deliver similar levels of multimodal engagement for lower acuity behavioral health populations and additional lines of business. Fifth, access to high-quality behavioral health providers is critical.

We are building out individual person-centered care that connects an ecosystem of stakeholders to the much-needed solutions. Our personalization of care extends to customizing therapists through clinical matching, for example. We might identify an individual with depression, diabetes, and hypertension. Since we focus on the members' goals, we might start by working with this member and their stated goal of weight loss while matching the member to a mental health professional who works with depression.

We also consider the members' health plan, their line of business language, and preference for face-to-face or telephonic provider visits. We review the health plans programs as well to see whether after receiving care, the member would benefit from enrolling in a health plans program that, for instance, works with members to improve management of their diabetes. That being said, by linking our members with the best mental health treatment and providing intensive coaching support, these individuals may not need to enroll in further programs because their medical condition often improves through better health literacy, treatment adherence, and attention to their mental health and social risks. Our ability to match members to the most suitable healthcare professionals has been especially well-received by health plan customers and by provider networks we wish to partner with.

In light of the severe national shortage of behavioral health providers accepting insurance or partnerships with over 14,500 behavioral health providers continues to be a clear differentiator who are Ontrak in the marketplace. And sixth, government programs, commercial partners have a keen interest in how Ontrak's value-based care can drive overall customer satisfaction scores. Ontrak has a high Net Promoter Score that has the potential to increase how members rate their health plans and providers. Importantly, we have an opportunity to explore how we can impact customer HEDIS scores, Stars ratings, CAHPS scores by engaging members in ways that create high satisfaction levels and help members successfully access a complete treatment.

Key account leaders within our customer organizations tell us that their major accounts value the Ontrak program. We're well-positioned to heighten the value that health plans create for commercial populations by building trust, engagement, and readiness with employees so that their employers experience higher enterprise loyalty and commitment levels. As we've begun testing receptivity to the growth initiatives, not only with our customers but with prospects and providers, the feedback has been very positive. We've seen an increase in initial discussions in recent weeks in our sales pipeline.

While it's still early, we're encouraged by dialogue we are having with health plans, provider groups, and employer organizations. We're investing to roll out our enhanced product and service capabilities over the third quarter and the fourth quarter this year as an engine for growth and expansion into more channels, population segments, and lines of business. With respect to our existing customers, we continue to see meaningful levels of engagement as we discuss our product development road map, develop strategies to maintain and increase return on investment and enhance our reporting of insights and analytics. During the second quarter, we announced an expansion with a large healthcare system, which was officially launched earlier this week, and we remain on track to expand this particular relationship into additional geographies over time.

With respect to a previously communicated customer termination, we would note that in the spirit of providing the best member experience, we've mutually agreed with the customer that there is benefit to supporting this commercial membership to the course of treatment and graduation from the Ontrak program. For this reason, we did not disenroll their commercial members as of June 30 as originally planned, and we look forward to scheduled discussions this month on our evolving product road map and capabilities and how these might align to this valued customer's needs. I'd also like to note that we are building out a world-class executive team and anticipate sharing important news very soon on selected candidates for three key positions, which are expected to advance and accelerate our growth initiatives in the second half of this year. Those are the chief customer officer, chief medical officer, and chief information officer.

In summary, I'm pleased with the progress we've made on our product and clinical road map these past few months. I continue to see a massive addressable market for those who can benefit from our integrated intervention platform, and I'm looking forward to continued invigorating discussions with health plans, employers, and providers on the outcomes that we deliver and the collaborative partnership they would like to create with us. We are intently focused on mutual growth and achieving our mission of helping save the lives of as many people as possible. I'll now turn the call over to Brandon LaVerne, our chief financial officer.


Brandon LaVerne -- Chief Financial Officer

Thank you, Jonathan. As Jonathan mentioned earlier, during the second quarter, we recorded revenue of $26.5 million, a 54% year-over-year increase, despite the loss of the Medicare members of our last customer at the beginning of the quarter. Deferred revenue decreased to $14.5 million in the second quarter, down from $24.9 million in the first quarter. At the beginning of the second quarter, we had 14,868 enrolled members and ended the quarter with 10,818 or a simple average of 12,843.

That equates to revenue of about $687 per enrolled member per month for the quarter and compared to $558 per enrolled member per month, I should say, in the second quarter of 2020 and with $626 per enrolled member per month in Q1 2021. To go a bit deeper into Q2 enrollment, we enrolled a total of 3,066 members during the quarter, compared to 6,723 in the second quarter last year or a 54% decrease, largely due to the termination notice. Dividing Q2 gross enrollment by our outreach pool, which averaged approximately 23,000 for the quarter, it annualizes to a 53% enrollment rate on an annual basis, compared to the 21% annualized rate we saw in the first quarter. Our disenrollment rate averaged approximately 11% per month during the quarter, resulted in us disenrolling a total of 5,070 enrolled members during the quarter.

At the very beginning of the second quarter, as part of the transition plan with our last customer, we disenrolled 2,100 of their Medicare members. Excluding these members disenrolling due to the termination notice, our disenrollment rate would have been approximately 7% per month. This compares favorably to the 9% average monthly disenrollment rate we saw in Q2 of last year. Further, we graduated 2,046 enrolled members during the quarter, which equates to about 14% of the enrolled members in the program at the beginning of the quarter and an increase to the 9% average monthly graduation rate we saw in the second quarter of last year.

Then an impact of all that was a net enrollment decrease of about 4,050 members in the second quarter. Our gross margin for the second quarter of 67.8%, increased sequentially from 55.6% as compared to 42.7% in the second quarter of last year. The expansion of our gross margin was driven by the 23% increase in the average per enrolled member per month rate in Q2 2021 compared to Q2 2020 combined with significantly improved enrollment rates as our business has shifted to a higher mix of the government business. Further, we have continued to optimize our internal costs, including the in-sourcing of nutritional specialists into our coaching staff that were previously outsourced to third-party providers, as well as the communication materials delivered to our members and prospects.

We ended the quarter with 244 team members included in cost of revenue, down 19% sequentially from 303 at the end of Q1 due to our reduction in response to the customer loss. The team members and cost of revenue are primarily made up of care coaches and member engagement specialists. As we look forward, we would expect gross margin to normalize a bit lower than recent trends as we ramp up new customers, continue to develop our relationships and price structures with existing customers and increased third-party behavioral health provider visits. Turning to the balance sheet and cash flow.

Our cash flow from operations in the second quarter was a negative $3.3 million, compared to a negative $6.2 million in the second quarter last year. On the balance sheet, we ended the quarter with cash and cash equivalents of $91.5 million, up from $86.9 million at year-end. Including restricted cash, total cash was $103.2 million, consistent with year-end. We remain confident that we have sufficient capital and access to future capital to manage our operations and execute on the strategic initiatives we've outlined.

Regarding our outlook for the remainder of the year, as Jonathan indicated, we're targeting revenue in the $80 million to $85 million range. While we are proud that we were able to achieve positive adjusted EBITDA through the fourth quarter -- first quarter and second quarter, we continue to expect adjusted EBITDA to be negatively impacted in the remaining quarters of the year due to the loss contract. We anticipate operating leverage improvements as we add additional customers and expansions to our platform in subsequent quarters. I'd now like to turn the call back over to Jonathan.


Jonathan Mayhew -- Chief Executive Officer

Thank you, Brandon. We continue to execute on our strategic plans to expand our addressable market, further invest in our engagement system and increase our brand recognition for those who serve individuals with behavioral health and chronic conditions. This momentum puts us in a great position to achieve our full-year goals, and I look forward to updating you on our progress. Our continued execution and intense focus on the growth initiatives will drive us toward greater predictability while also expanding our impact on those in need across the nation.

With that, we'll now open it up to questions. Operator?

Questions & Answers:


[Operator instructions] Your first question comes from the line of Charles Rhyee from Cowen. Your line is open.

Charles Rhyee -- Cowen and Company -- Analyst

Congrats on the quarter. Jonathan, just had a quick question. As we think about the Aetna members, you kind of mentioned that the commercial members are staying on. How many more months do you expect them to be on the platform? And is that factored still within the revenue guidance range provided?

Jonathan Mayhew -- Chief Executive Officer

It is. And the way I would describe it is, you know, they were originally scheduled for all of the members to be off the platform and out of our program by the end of June. And through the course of conversations, what we collectively and mutually decided to do was to make sure we could support these members through their natural graduation in disenrollment dates. So, you can think of it as sort of feathering down throughout the rest of this year.

Maybe a little into the beginning of next year, but most of the membership should have naturally achieved their graduations through to the end of the year.

Charles Rhyee -- Cowen and Company -- Analyst

Is there something different between the commercial members and the Medicare members that would allow the Medicare members to all get disenrolled versus commercial being chosen to stay on? Are there certain capabilities that Aetna is providing to their Medicare members that's not necessarily available for commercial members?

Jonathan Mayhew -- Chief Executive Officer

Not that I'm aware of. I really think, you know, there are probably less restrictions, I'll say, in terms of, you know, communication with the commercial population versus some of the government communication requirements that are requisite for CMS and government communication protocol. So, they may have a little bit more flexibility with commercial than they do with Medicare. But I'm not aware of any support differences that were or were not provided to those members.

Charles Rhyee -- Cowen and Company -- Analyst

That's helpful. And then maybe one last for me. On Optima with the Sentara Healthcare, when does that expected to start? And how many lives -- covered lives will go into the pool? What's the best way to think about that one?

Jonathan Mayhew -- Chief Executive Officer

Yeah. I mean, we're live. We activated that relationship this week. I'll let Brandon comment on the impact on the outreach pools and populations relative to the forecast, but we did activate the relationship this week.

Brandon LaVerne -- Chief Financial Officer

Sure. And Charles, so we had indicated that the average pool at the end of the quarter was around 20,000. The average during the quarter was about 23. And I can tell you that today, the average pool is around 27,000.

And so that would include, you know, any natural other fluctuations, as well as the inclusion of the new program that you discussed.

Charles Rhyee -- Cowen and Company -- Analyst

Great. I appreciate it. Thanks.

Jonathan Mayhew -- Chief Executive Officer

Thank you.


Your next question comes from the line of Richard Close from Canaccord. Your line is open.

Richard Close -- Canaccord Genuity -- Analyst

Yeah. Thanks. Brandon, just housekeeping. What was the rate that you gave, the average rate or price in the second quarter? It was a $600 number?

Brandon LaVerne -- Chief Financial Officer

In the second quarter, it was $687 per enrolled member per month. 

Richard Close -- Canaccord Genuity -- Analyst

OK. All right. Excellent. OK.

With respect to the $80 million to $85 million, maybe just going off of Charles' question in terms of the Aetna commercial staying on, do we think of that as, you know, you're still generating revenue from that -- from those commercial members? You had expected them off, you know, by the end of the second quarter. So, does that sort of imply that, you know, maybe the revenue you would have guided down possibly without those Aetna members staying on? How should we think about that?

Brandon LaVerne -- Chief Financial Officer

Richard, the way I would answer that is the Aetna members coming off, we hadn't enrolled them in great numbers in the last couple of quarters. And so, the rate of decline is accelerating as we get closer to, you know, 12 months from when we last enrolled as an example. And so I can tell you, as of the end of the quarter, we had a little over 2,500 members for them, and now that number is down to about 760 as of today. And so it is coming down much faster as people are graduating and then, you know, their normal disenrollment rates.

And so the incremental revenue associated with that is not that great, and we are still working with the health plan to determine ultimately what that's going to look like through the rest of the year.

Richard Close -- Canaccord Genuity -- Analyst

Maybe I'll ask it a different way. Was -- were you expecting all the Aetna members to be off the books June 30 -- by June 30 or no previously? 

Brandon LaVerne -- Chief Financial Officer

Yes, we were, we were. And so Richard, to answer more directly, I think the question really is would we have guided down and we're still looking in the range we're talking about. There's enough uncertainty with how this particular population is going to act in the next six months or five from now, technically and then just with other natural variations. And so I'd say there's just additional uncertainty with it.

And so we feel that it's within the same guidance that we have given. 

Richard Close -- Canaccord Genuity -- Analyst

OK. Good. That's helpful. And then, Jonathan, maybe just going back to your initial comments and the growth strategy and rolling out, I guess, new offerings in the second half.

Specifically, if you could just like make it easy for us, I guess, in terms of what are you expecting to roll out in the second half that, you know, you're not doing now? What's different?

Jonathan Mayhew -- Chief Executive Officer

Maybe the way I would try to simplify it is some of the guiding principles that we really try to develop around our product and clinical programs are evolving and changing. Those principles around that product road map is, one, to make sure that we maintain some member obsession, particularly focused on people with high acuity and most in need, right? We feel like that's a foundational area for us. So we can do more to connect those individuals to community-based programs, health plan-related programs and make sure that we support those treatment plans with more bidirectional information between our coaches, primary care physicians, and the treating therapists. Number two is we want to make sure that we enhance our sort of measurement obsession, right? Metrics early and often around clinical and quality outcomes can be further enhanced as we build those levels of connectivity.

Number three, this concept of whole-person support, right? These people do not live in isolation with the care they're receiving from their coach. And we can do more to make sure that their social circumstances, their clinical circumstances, and their behavioral and emotional support circumstances are integrated through expanding the role of our coach. Number four, I would say, is member engagement, right? We know we drive engagement. People have to be ready to engage with us.

We need to meet the member where they are in terms of that readiness, but making sure that the coach, therapist, primary care physician engagement is in sync and is relational to the degree of severity that the people have, right? So the more severe you are, the more engagement they're on a day. Digital experiences. We bought LifeDojo. I think, as you know and others know, and we've got a host of digital capabilities that allow us to enhance what our coaches do but also what the members do.

And so we will continue to layer in digital capabilities that complement the very human interactions that people have with the coach. And then number five, it's just -- it's a question of will we get to take that and balance those across a set of expanded lines of businesses and channels. So, it's easy for us to take the coach model and pivot that into the employer market. It's relatively easy for us to take the digital platform and make sure it's available to the coaches to coach people up on the use of a digital set of tools and capabilities.

And so, we're going to continue to make sure that it's really relevant for commercial employer and the government lines of business. So hopefully, those six dimensions relative to the guiding principles of the program helped sort of clarify what we're doing. And the feature and the functionality and the pricing components, you know, we'll be able to add more clarity to that as we come through into the third quarter. Does that help? Hopefully, that clears --

Richard Close -- Canaccord Genuity -- Analyst

Yeah, that does. So when you say pricing components, that means potentially you can get greater wallet share as you add capabilities and enhancements to the current offering?

Jonathan Mayhew -- Chief Executive Officer

Yeah. It gives us a larger addressable market, right, as we take those capabilities and take them to new audiences and new channels. And then I think from a pricing standpoint, we would want you to think about it relative to our pricing is and will be commensurate with the intensity in the service level of the individual that we service. And so as we continue to bring more into the high-acuity population, that may have an effect on revenue in that direction.

And as we take digital capabilities and platform solutions that have coaching and therapy modules, then you would expect pricing to be commensurate with a lower acuity level as well.

Richard Close -- Canaccord Genuity -- Analyst

OK. Thank you.

Jonathan Mayhew -- Chief Executive Officer



Your next question comes from the line of Sean Dodge from RBC Capital Markets. Your line is open.

Sean Dodge -- RBC Capital Markets -- Analyst

Thanks. Good afternoon. Jonathan, you mentioned the expectation of a rebound in the eligibility pool beginning in the second half of this year. Is there anything you can point to specifically that underpins your confidence there? And then maybe if you could give us an idea of how many lives we could see flow back in as utilization rebound? I guess maybe how many good starting point would be -- how many lives over the last few quarters, do you think have dropped out because of the depressed utilization that could be set with kind of reconstitute?

Jonathan Mayhew -- Chief Executive Officer

I'll let Brandon talk a little bit about sort of the specific numbers relative to the pool in the forecast. But some of the macro factors, if you will, have to do with the continued mix shift with regard to commercial customers and government programs that's occurring in our pipeline and the outreach pool that ultimately find their way to the individuals that are in a gold status. I think in terms of some of the utilization, as you probably have heard throughout the industry, and we definitely see this through the claims files that we take in regularly from the customers, the commercial populations look different than the government program. So, commercial utilization seems to have restored a little bit more quickly and maybe even sort of over-indexed on what the carriers would have thought trend was going to look like coming into the second quarter.

And the government programs, Medicare and Medicaid specifically, are still looking below what they would have expected from a utilization standpoint. And we see that as we increasingly get more exposed to the government lines of business in our outreach pools. So, Brad, I don't know if you want to comment specifically on the increase in the pool size? 

Brandon LaVerne -- Chief Financial Officer

Sure. If you take it back a couple of quarters, so last year, we had reported that we had lost about 30% to 40% of the pool related to utilization in kind of the height of COVID. And we never saw a big return in the last two quarters, Q1 and Q2 this year, we've seen just little decrements related to utilization. So, recall that our program has a threshold of about $7,500 to get into the program on an annual basis.

And so, we've seen, you know, less than 10% reductions in the last couple of quarters, but we just haven't seen an increase yet. And so given the kind of the expected increase in utilization and the claims lag that comes naturally in the industry, we would expect to see an increase in utilization in the coming quarters. You know, Delta variant nonetheless at this point, but from what we're hearing from third parties at this point, utilization, the hope is that it does return and that should have a decent impact on the pool from everything we can gather.

Sean Dodge -- RBC Capital Markets -- Analyst

OK. And so I guess there have been some big moving parts in the model recently. We've got Aetna still winding out, Sentara coming in, increasing utilization just around the corner. Maybe can you start to help frame how you feel about your growth trajectory heading into 2022? I guess if we distill all this down around the run rate of the current client base, new adds, the opportunity of your pipeline, how should we start to think about the direction of revenue in the coming year?

Jonathan Mayhew -- Chief Executive Officer

I mean, I'll let Brandon go a little deeper on this one if he wants to. But, you know, we're not guiding toward '22 at this particular time. What I would say is, you know, our pipeline is growing. The quality of the pipeline is very good, and it's very balanced.

We've got major national companies in conversion. We've got multiple lines of business in conversation across Medicaid, Medicare, and some large commercial populations. And, you know, as I mentioned, we're in some very early stage conversations with provider groups that are at at-risk, value-based capitated groups with large Medicare dual-eligible populations. And we've got some employers that want to activate the enhanced digital platform with coaching and therapy support.

So early stage conversations, but, you know, from a quality of the carrier and the quality of the provider and sort of the earnestness with which they're engaging on some of the road map stuff that we mentioned. I got to imagine, right, that our ability to bring some of that forward is real. And some of it's early still, but it's real.

Sean Dodge -- RBC Capital Markets -- Analyst

OK. That's great. Thank you again.


There are no further questions at this time. I would now like to turn the conference back to Mr. Jonathan Mayhew.

Jonathan Mayhew -- Chief Executive Officer

Well, thank you very much, everyone, for your time this afternoon. We really appreciate you joining us, and we look forward to continuing to provide you with updates. So, thank you. Be safe and be well.
