Adam Miller is leaving his position as senior vice president of national Medicare and government affairs at WellCare Health Plans because his job is being eliminated, the company reported.
Miller leaving WellCare amid business realignment
The move comes “as part of WellCare’s ongoing evaluation and realignment of its core business functions to improve its cost structure,” the Tampa, Fla.-based managed-care company said in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing. Miller’s departure date will likely be Jan. 18, 2010.
Since joining WellCare in January 2006, Miller, 43, has managed Medicare prescription-drug plans and Medicare Advantage private fee-for-service plans. Prior to coming to WellCare, Miller ran UnitedHealth Group’s Arizona Medicaid program.
WellCare announced in May it would no longer offer Medicare Advantage private fee-for-service plans as of 2010. Under federal regulations enacted last year, these plans must establish provider networks where they operate and report quality measures starting in 2011.
