Garry Maisel, CEO at Western Health Advantage, is the new chairman of the California Association of Health Plans. The Sacramento-based trade group represents 42 managed-care plans that provide coverage to more than 22 million Californians.

Maisel assumed the helm as California enters a second year of enrollment for the state health benefit exchange and Medi-Cal expansion under the Affordable Care Act. Stakes are huge: Health plans signed up more than 3 million new members in the first go round.
