Alan Levine is taking on a new voluntary role in state government as head of the Health and Human Services Transition Team for Rick Scott, the Republican governor-elect of Florida. Earlier this year, Levine, 43, became a senior VP with for-profit Health Management Associates, Naples, Fla., a job he will retain during his time as head of Scott's 40-member HHS transition team. Previously, Levine worked as a health policy adviser and deputy chief of staff to then-Gov. Jeb Bush in 2003, and went on to become secretary of Florida's Agency for Health Care Administration when the state was granted a federal waiver to start its ongoing Medicaid privatization program. Levine, who in 2005 was named to Modern Healthcare's “Up and Comers” list for executives under the age of 40, left Florida in January 2008 to work as secretary of the Louisiana Department of Health & Hospitals and senior health policy adviser to Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal. He left that job to work at HMA in August.
