Medical Advantage Group, a health care consulting and management company headquartered in Michigan, has appointed Paul MacLellan as its new chief executive officer. He will assume this new role beginning June 25, 2014.
MacLellan most recently served as a director at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan (BCBSM), where he supported several key business systems for BCBSM’s commercial products.
Prior to working at BCBSM, MacLellan played a key role in the launch of two start-up organizations. At RouteOne, he held product management responsibilities for a number of solutions in the North American automotive finance industry. At RealAge.com, he led the team that launched a highly innovative health risk assessment product.
Simultaneously, The Doctors Company, the nation’s largest physician-owned medical malpractice insurer, has completed its acquisition of Medical Advantage Group.
The Doctors Company owned a large stake in Medical Advantage Group prior to the acquisition, along with Physician Holding Company and about 200 independent physicians. Under the terms of the transaction, Medical Advantage Group joins The Doctors Company as a wholly owned subsidiary and will continue to operate out of its Ann Arbor, East Lansing, and Flint offices.
MacLellan predicts that Michigan physicians will benefit from the merger. “With the resources available from the state’s leading health care consulting organization and its leading medical malpractice insurer, Michigan physicians are positioned to create a better climate in which to practice medicine,” he said. “I am pleased to be joining Medical Advantage Group at such a pivotal point in its history.”
