He is a results-oriented, decisive leader with proven success in the government arena and payer arena across the commercial health insurance market and the Medicaid market. Commissioner Tigue has a track record of expanding access to care, driving value in the health care system through delivery system reform and payment reform, and overseeing budgets and initiatives to achieve financial goals. Prior to his appointment, he served as a principal at Health Management Associates where he provided executive advisory services to public and private sector clients related to publicly funded health care.
Previously, Commissioner Tigue served as assistant secretary for health and Medicaid director at the State of Rhode Island Executive Office of Health and Human Services where he led the Medicaid Program, serving approximately 300,000 residents and managing a $2.5 billion annual budget.
