INDIANAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 30, 2017--
Anthem, Inc. has announced Tomas Orozco as president of its Medicare
east region. He will oversee Anthem’s Medicare operations in
Connecticut, Florida, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, and
Virginia. Previously, Orozco served as president of Simply Healthcare’s
Medicare business in Florida.
“Tomas is a respected leader at Anthem and brings a strong commitment to
delivering consumer-centric solutions that meet the health care and
lifestyle needs of our members,” said Marc Russo, Anthem’s national
president of Medicare. “Leveraging his collaborative leadership style
and 20 years of industry experience, Tomas led Simply’s Medicare
Advantage plans to multiple years of 4-Star ratings by the Centers for
Medicare and Medicaid Services – a significant achievement for a plan
that is less than five years old. I am confident he will bring the same
drive and results to the rest of Anthem’s Medicare business in the east
Tomas joined Simply Healthcare in 2011 as executive vice president of
the south Florida market. Four years later, Orozco was appointed
president of the Medicare line of business. He oversaw one of the
fastest growing Medicare Advantage plans in Florida, with more than 50
percent growth in plan membership over the past 14 months. Orozco also
brought more than 75 percent of Simply’s members into value-based
provider agreements, recognizing the importance of rewarding patient
health outcomes when contracting with clinicians.
“I am honored that Anthem and its leadership team has put its trust in
me to lead the Medicare east region during an exciting and dynamic time
for the health care industry,” said Orozco. “I look forward to working
with my colleagues in developing products that give consumers access to
high-quality, affordable health care and clear the way for members to
live the life they’ve earned.”
Orozco will operate out of Anthem’s Miami, FL, office as he continues
his focus on growing Anthem’s Medicare business in Florida and leads the
rest of the east region in its efforts to meet the needs of current and
future members of Anthem’s affiliated health plans. He will serve as
president of both the Florida plan and Anthem’s Medicare east region
until a new president is named for Simply Healthcare.
Prior to Simply Healthcare, Orozco held executive positions at CarePlus
Health Plans and worked at Physicians Healthcare Plans, Inc. before that.
