Inland Empire Health Plan’s (IEHP) Chief Executive Officer Jarrod McNaughton has been appointed to the California Department of Managed Health Care’s (DMHC) Financial Solvency Standards Board (FSSB) for a three-year term.


McNaughton is the only health plan CEO appointed to the board.


“I’m very grateful to be appointed to the FSSB,” McNaughton said. “I look forward to working with the other members of the board to ensure California’s health care system is financially secure so that it may continue to care for our IEHP members and all patients well into the future.” 


The FSSB oversees managed care plans’ financial solvency which affects the delivery of health care services. They are responsible for developing and recommending requirements and standards in several areas, including – but not limited to – plan operations, plan-provider contractual relationships and provider-affiliate transactions.


The board also monitors and reports on “the implementation and results of financial solvency requirements and standards and reviews proposed regulation changes,” according to the DHMC website.


The DMHC’s mission is to protect consumers’ health care rights and ensure a stable health care delivery system. More information on the organization may be found online at www.dmhc.ca.gov.


The FSSB meets quarterly in Sacramento and meetings are streamed live on the DMHC website.
