- Aligned the Health Plan under one unified name under the umbrella of the Baylor Scott & White brand to improve the experience for members, brokers and providers.
Prior to leading Baylor Scott & White Health Plan, Jeff served for 18 years as President and CEO of Health Alliance Medical Plans, in Urbana, Ill., and 10 years as their Chief Financial Officer. Jeff earned his Bachelor of Accounting degree from Eastern Illinois University, Charleston, Ill., and a Master of Health Administration degree from the College of St. Francis, Joliet, Ill.
