HARTFORD, Conn. – Recruited by the U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services, the head of Connecticut’s insurance exchange will be leaving next month to start a new job in Washington.

Kevin Counihan, CEO of Access Health CT, will be leaving Sept. 5 to become Marketplace CEO at the Centers of Medicaid and Medicare Services. In his new position, Counihan will be responsible for the federal marketplace, managing relationships with state marketplaces, and running the Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight, which regulates health insurance at the federal level.

“He brings additional operational and technological expertise to the position and will be a clear, single point of contact for streamlined decision-making,” U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Sylvia Burwell said in a press release.
