Senior Vice President, Chief Financial Officer
As senior vice president and chief financial officer Merrill Hausenfluck works with a skilled team to deliver financial confidence, credibility and accuracy to ensure the best results and customer service in the benefits sector.
He brings more than 20 years of comprehensive leadership experience in the health care industry including leading finance, clinical and operations teams, with a strong emphasis on government programs. He also has a solid track record of revitalizing financial and operational processes and ensuring compliance in government programs while optimizing return on investment.
Following a recent restructuring of the financial function, his team took on new and larger responsibilities. He’s deeply committed to transparency and building relationships and trust across the team that supports growth and challenges them to continuously raise the bar.
Before joining HAP, Merrill served as CFO of Envolve Pharmacy Solutions, part of Centene’s specialty services division. He spent 15 years at WellCare, prior to Centene’s 2020 acquisition of the company. During that time WellCare increased its revenues by more than 500%, exceeding $28 billion in 2020. Earlier in his career, he held leadership positions at Aetna and PacifiCare Health Systems.
Outside of the office, Merrill keeps up with the various activities of his three children and volunteers on the Board of the YMCA to support youth in under-resourced communities. He’s an avid runner and hiker often accompanied by his dog. A dislike of flying has helped him to develop a mindset around focusing on what you can control, which benefits him greatly through his role as CFO.
Merrill holds a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Accounting from Radford University in Virginia.
