President and CEO,
America's Health Insurance Plans
As head of the insurance industry’s main trade group, Eyles has been a prominent voice for continuing to evolve healthcare’s payment model, especially as the pandemic has taken hold. He’s spoken about the need to accelerate the move to value-based payment and accelerate the use of telemedicine. In a September commentary in Modern Healthcare, he called on Congress to bolster funding to states to prevent sizeable cuts to Medicaid, including Medicaid managed-care plans. “A strong and effective Medicaid program is critical … to maintaining health for our most vulnerable populations,” he wrote.
