Payet named CEO of state health plan

Posted

Keith Payet has been named CEO of the UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of Tennessee.

As the leader for the 493,700-member Medicaid plan, which includes the Dual Special Needs Plan, Payet will be responsible for the strategic vision, as well as the operational and financial performance of the Tennessee health plan.

Payet joined UnitedHealthcare in July 2015 to manage the Long Term Services and Supports (LTSS) program, where he led a team of more than 300 employees.

The LTSS business has flourished under his leadership, as he has been the key liaison for the Tennessee CHOICES program by TennCare, UnitedHealthcare’s state partner.

 Payet was also instrumental in leading the implementation of the Employment and Community First CHOICES program for people with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities for the Tennessee Health Plan.

Employment and Community First CHOICES is the first Home and Community Based Services program in the country that is specifically geared toward promoting and supporting integrated, competitive employment and independent living as the first and preferred option for all individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities.

Payet joined UnitedHealthcare from Integra Managed Care (New York), where he was the COO of the health plan. He was recently recognized by the Nashville Business Journal as Employee of the Year, Company Culture.
