My husband collaborated with other key figures in the state to get Utah’s Health reform bill written and it passed into law March 11, 2009. Yesterday, we got word that Dave’s Gubernatorial appointment was confirmed by the State Senate, so it is offical. I can now say, (brag), that my husband will be serving as the employer/employee representative on the Risk Adjustment Board to develop the business rules, policies and procedures for the new reform plan. They will also be pioneering a shared risk adjustment mechanism for the Utah Health Exchange.
This is not the first time I have been in awe at the knack Dave has for being brilliant. He is a great man and I know he will bring value and success to this new and daunting task. I am proud of him.
