eHealth, a private online health insurance exchange in the United States, has unveiled a new operating structure that will allow the company’s core management team to focus on driving strong growth and strategic initiatives.

As part of the restructure, the company's chief financial officer and chief operations officer David Francis will relinquish his role as CFO, once his replacement has been found. He will take on the new role of chief operating officer, responsible for managing all revenue operations of eHealth.

Robert Hurley will move from president of eHealth’s Medicare business to take the role of president, carrier and business development, which includes the strategic direction of corporate development and expansion of the company's value based provider networks. The company said Hurley’s extensive relationships across the health insurance markets will help provide substantial opportunity for eHealth to promote its high value consumer health insurance engagement solutions to a broad audience.

“Our new operating structure will allow the company’s management team to focus on driving key growth and strategic initiatives, while placing key executives in roles that will allow them to have maximum impact on the business,” said Scott Flanders, eHealth’s chief executive officer.

“Following a successful transition year to refocus the company on delivering strong growth within a more disciplined cost and operating structure, we look forward to accelerating value creation for the business and for all of our stakeholders.”
