President and CEO,
Wang heads the largest not-for-profit health plan in New York state and largest Medicaid plan in its service area, which added 193,000 members in 2020, ahead of projected goals. Healthfirst was on track for its 2020 operating margin to exceed 5%. Wang has a significant say on health policy, too, serving on the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission, as well as a New York state Medicaid budget task force, where she advocated for targeted cuts to the program, rather than sweeping payment reductions. More than 35% of Healthfirst’s executive team is female.
