Leading National Anti-Fraud Organization Elects WellPoint’s Alanna Lavelle As Board Chair

WellPoint, Inc. (NYSE: WLP) announces Alanna Lavelle’s recent election as the National Health Care Anti-Fraud Association (NHCAA) chair of the board of directors. The NHCAA is a leading national organization focused exclusively on the fight against health care fraud with members from the private insurance industry and public-sector programs – including HHS and the FBI. Lavelle has served on its board for three years and this recent election showcases her value to the organization.

Lavelle is currently the director of Investigations for the southeast and central regions of WellPoint, Inc., managing the special investigation unit for approximately 14 million members in WellPoint’s affiliated health plans in Georgia, Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Missouri, Wisconsin and Virginia. Lavelle joined WellPoint, Inc. in 2004, after serving 25 years with the Federal Bureau of Investigation where she managed a large health care fraud task force and served as the supervisory special agent FBI liaison for the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), working closely with the CDC on Bioterrorism matters in the post 9/11 era.

“Alanna Lavelle has been a decisive leader of WellPoint’s special investigation unit, implementing predictive analytics and strengthening the team with additional members who have clinical expertise,” said Lee Arian, staff vice president of program integrity and investigations at WellPoint. “Her dedication to the fight against health care fraud and abuse coupled with her strong partnerships with others in the industry are an asset to WellPoint and the NHCAA.”

“Alanna has made enormous contributions to NHCAA and our membership,” said Louis Saccoccio, Chief Executive Officer of NHCAA. “Her wealth of experience and excellent leadership skills will be a significant asset to our Board and Membership as we continue working together with public-sector law enforcement and regulatory agencies to develop the strategies and best practices to detect and prevent health care fraud.”

As NHCAA board chair, Lavelle will lead monthly NHCAA calls and will host quarterly face-to-face meetings with members. She succeeds Jack Price, former chief security officer of BlueCrossBlueShield of Tennessee.
