Slabosky retiring from IU Health Plans

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Alex Slabosky, the head of Indiana University Health Plans, is retiring and has been replaced by Treasurer Ryan Kitchell, the Indianapolis-based hospital system announced Tuesday morning.

For 20 years, Slabosky oversaw the M-Plan health maintenance organization, of which IU Health owned about 87 percent. After M-Plan wound down in 2008, Slabosky continued to oversee the Medicare Advantage plan controlled by IU Health.

More recently, Slabosky had pitched IU Health Plans as a health plan other employers could join or as a provider of services that would help employers with their worker health benefits. But those offerings had yet to gain much traction in the marketplace.

“We thank Alex for making IU Health Plans what it is today and wish him the best in his retirement,” said IU Health CEO Dan Evans in a prepared statement.

Kitchell came to IU Health in 2010 after serving as Gov. Mitch Daniels’ director of the Office of Management and Budget. He holds a degree in economics from Indiana University and an MBA from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College.

In addition to running IU Health Plans, Kitchell will continue his management of IU Health’s treasury and real estate departments.


  • and what about the bonus?
    I guess the "other compensation" received in 2009 of $2,627,823 wasnt enough to hold him. Check the Clarian Form 990.

  1. Those of you yelling to deport them all should at least understand that the law allows minors (if not from a bordering country) to argue for asylum. If you don't like the law, you can petition Congress to change it. But you can't blindly scream that they all need to be deported now, unless you want your government to just decide which laws to follow and which to ignore.

  2. 52,000 children in a country with a population of nearly 300 million is decimal dust or a nano-amount of people that can be easily absorbed. In addition, the flow of children from central American countries is decreasing. BL - the country can easily absorb these children while at the same time trying to discourage more children from coming. There is tension between economic concerns and the values of Judeo-Christian believers. But, I cannot see how the economic argument can stand up against the values of the believers, which most people in this country espouse (but perhaps don't practice). The Governor, who is an alleged religious man and a family man, seems to favor the economic argument; I do not see how his position is tenable under the circumstances. Yes, this is a complicated situation made worse by politics but....these are helpless children without parents and many want to simply "ship" them back to who knows where. Where are our Hoosier hearts? I thought the term Hoosier was synonymous with hospitable.

  3. Illegal aliens. Not undocumented workers (too young anyway). I note that this article never uses the word illegal and calls them immigrants. Being married to a naturalized citizen, these people are criminals and need to be deported as soon as humanly possible. The border needs to be closed NOW.

  4. Send them back NOW.

  5. deport now
