America’s Health Insurance Plans, a health insurance trade group, said Wednesday that CEO Matt Eyles will relinquish his post on Oct. 2.
Eyles hinted that his next role will also involve health care policy.
“Down the road, I look forward to working on new pathways and collaborations to make our health care system better for everyone,” Eyles said.
AHIP said it will conduct a national search to find a new CEO.
What It Means
Health insurers will have a new top strategist this fall as they work to protect Medicare, Medicaid, Affordable Care Act programs and the group health insurance tax exclusion from budget cutters.
Eyles moved to AHIP from Avalere Health, a consulting firm, in 2015. He succeeded Marilyn Tavenner as the president and CEO of the Washington-based group in 2018.
He helped AHIP navigate the last three years of Donald Trump’s presidency, the first half of Joe Biden’s presidency and the COVID-19 pandemic.
