“Lois and Susan are dynamic leaders who share our mission-driven passion to think big and be fearless in solving the kinds of complex problems we face in health care,” Markovich said. “Our current healthcare system is unsustainable and unacceptable. That’s why we are running hard and fast with talented leaders to make bold moves that fundamentally change the way our healthcare system works and make it worthy of our family and friends and sustainably affordable for everyone.”

“I believe California can lead the nation in creative, enduring solutions in health care, and Blue Shield of California is uniquely positioned to lead that charge,” Quam said. “I’m honored to join this talented team in making that vision a reality.”
