Minnesota: Marketplace CEO Resigns

Scott Leitz, who has served as the CEO of MNsure since December 2013,resigned this week and will be replaced for the interim by Allison O’Toole, MNsure’s deputy director for external affairs. Before joining MNsure, Leitz worked in the State Department of Human Services, where he oversaw Medicaid, and held several positions in the Minnesota Department of Health. His departure comes amidst discussions in the Legislature about the future of the agency that range from dismantling it, moving the State-based Marketplace into the federal marketplace, to converting MNsure into a full state agency under the authority of Governor Mark Dayton (D).
