Excellent pick at BCBS
At the risk of appearing to curry favor with our largest insurer, I want to congratulate the Blue Cross Blue Shield board for appointing Andrew Dreyfus to be the company's new CEO. Andrew brings a wealth of experience and judgment to the job. The work he did several years ago as head of the BCBS Foundation provided the data and policy impetus for the MA health care reform act in 2006 that expanded insurance coverage to virtually the entire population. Beyond that, his record in the state government and at the MA Hospital Association demonstrates the kind of knowledge and astuteness that will serve BCBS and its subscribers well. This is a hard time to be in the insurance business, and we all wish Andrew well.
