Jean Yang Executive Director Of MA Health Connector Quits
Jean Yang the Executive Director of the Massachusetts Health Connector quits after a very difficult year in which the state's health care exchange failed in spectacular fashion and fall far behind the federal site when in comes to fixing the problem. Her departure was expected since there is a new Republican governor, Charlie Baker, who is about to take office.
The problems in the connector's website impaired the process of transition from Massachusetts’(1st in the US) universal healthcare insurance law to the requirements of the Affordable Care Act, that left hundreds of thousands of people in the temporary Medicaid coverage.
Maydad Cohen, will took office as interim executive director until the Baker administration appoints a successor.
