Detroit – Teresa (Terri) L. Kline, a seasoned health care insurance executive, has been selected as the new President and Chief Executive Officer of HAP and Executive Vice President of Henry Ford Health System. She will join the health system on Nov. 21.

"With Terri's blend of payer and provider experience in insurance, managed care and provider environments, and her deep knowledge of health care market dynamics and regulations, she is a great fit to lead HAP," notes Wright Lassiter, III, president of Henry Ford Health System. "Terri excels at understanding and responding to the needs of health plan members, and has a history of partnering with providers and payers to do what is in the best interest of the community."

For the past two years, Terri has led her own firm in Atlanta, Ga., providing strategic consulting, due diligence, and interim management services. Prior to that, she was the Senior Vice President and Chief Health Care Management Officer for Health Care Service Corporation, the fourth largest U.S. health insurer.
