President and CEO, TeamHealth
Earlier this year, TeamHealth won the first of 10 cases against UnitedHealthcare. A jury awarded TeamHealth more than $60 million after a court ruled that the insurer shortchanged clinicians.
Leif Murphy leads TeamHealth, which offers outsourced physician services in multiple medical specialties. Murphy’s 20-year career features positions in healthcare, finance and operations. He was executive vice president and CFO for LifePoint Health, president, and CEO for DSI Renal, and senior vice president and treasurer of CVS/Caremark. He also held roles at Renal Care Group, National Nephrology Associates and HealthSouth.
Murphy speaks: “I’m here because it’s a big deal. I’m here because it’s important to all of our clinicians. I’m here because we need to collect the unpaid balance for United’s claims. And I think it sets a precedent for insurance across the United States.”
