Linda Lee, MPH, joins CalOptima Health as Executive Director, Medicare Programs, a new leadership role that focuses on the health of the agency’s vulnerable population of older adults. Ms. Lee brings more than 25 years of experience in managed care and clinical operations.

“Orange County’s population of seniors is growing faster than ever, and CalOptima Health recognizes the great need to serve seniors with respect and dignity,” Ms. Lee said. “I’m pleased to have this opportunity to strengthen and expand Medicare programs that may reach more than 110,000 senior members.”

She was most recently a managing principal at Health Management Associates, a leading independent consulting firm in the health care industry, assisting clients across the country with launching new Medicare Advantage Plans, including Special Needs Plans serving dual eligible members and members with chronic conditions.

“Linda is a tremendous addition to our executive team,” said Michael Hunn, CalOptima Health Chief Executive Officer. “She is a recognized leader in health plan quality and has demonstrated expertise in strategic development of Medicare plans. With her proven success in managing quality improvement, models of care, Medicare Star Ratings, health plan accreditation and performance measurement, she will set a new benchmark for excellence across our programs for seniors.”
