Dach, 60, will report to Burwell in the newly created role. He will assist with the health insurance exchanges' second open-enrollment period, and work with HHS staff and nongovernmental agencies on strategic health policies.

Dach was Wal-Mart's executive vice president of corporate affairs and government relations for seven years, and has 25 years combined experience in business, politics and strategic communications.
