AHIP has named Julie Simon Miller interim CEO as it continues searching for a new leader, the health insurance trade association announced Thursday.
Starting Oct. 2, Miller will temporarily succeed President and CEO Matt Eyles, who is departing the industry group at the end of this month and has not disclosed his next move.
Miller has worked at AHIP for 18 years and been general counsel since 2015. She led legal advocacy on issues such as the Affordable Care Act of 2010, pharmacy benefit manager regulation and generic prescription drug access, according to AHIP.
"Julie is a seasoned executive leader with broad industry perspective combined with deep legal and policy experience," AHIP Chair and Highmark Health President and CEO David Holmberg said in a news release. "These insights will enable AHIP to continue to serve its members and advance its mission. The entire board of directors has great confidence in Julie's ability to lead AHIP during this interim period."
AHIP declined to provide Miller for an interview.
