Yahoo! News

WellPoint Inc named Joseph Swedish, the top executive in a large non-profit hospital system, as the health insurer’s new chief executive officer after a half-year search that began when former CEO Angela Braly abruptly stepped down in August. The No.2 U.S. health insurer faces a challenging year in healthcare reform as the Affordable Care Act brings more changes in 2014, including the introduction of electronic marketplaces where insurers will sell directly to consumers.
