Teresa Kline, president and CEO of Health Alliance Plan (HAP), has announced she plans to retire in the summer. Her last day will be June 30.
Kline arrived at HAP in late 2016, and shortly after her arrival, she guided the company toward more profitable group contracts and government programs. This resulted in a $30-million turnaround. She continued to lead the company through uncertainty surrounding the Affordable Care Act in 2018. Earlier this year, HAP grew market share in Medicare Advantage after a decade of declining enrollment.
“In the relatively short time that Terri has been with us, she has done an extraordinary job positioning HAP for the future,” says Wright L. Lassiter III, president and CEO of Henry Ford Health System. “Her strong dedication to building innovative partnerships with providers and payers and her deep understanding of and responsiveness to the needs of our health plan members has played a critical role in our continuing commitment to providing value-based care.”
Kline announced a partnership in 2018 with two physician organizations to offer primary care-based Medicare Advantage HMO plans for seniors, a first in Michigan for its type of contract.
Dr. Michael Genord, HAP’s current senior vice president and chief medical officer, is set to serve as interim president and CEO until Henry Ford Health System chooses Kline’s successor.
HAP provides health coverage to individuals and companies. It is a subsidiary of Henry Ford Health System.
