Health insurer Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Massachusetts has named Andrew Dreyfus as its new president and chief executive.
Dreyfus has been the company’s executive vice president for health care services for the past five years.
Bill Van Faasen has been serving as unpaid interim president and CEO of the insurer since the resignation of Cleve Killingsworth in March. The company says Van Faasen will remain involved in a yet-to-be-determined role.
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Massachusetts, the state’s largest private health insurer, recently reached an agreement with Gov. Deval Patrick’s administration following a dispute over premium increases for small businesses and individuals. The company was allowed to raise its rates from 0.4 percent to 12.9 percent on Sept. 1.
