In this capacity, she was responsible for the management of the provider network, including implementation of innovative payment and healthcare delivery models with participating physicians and providers.

Before joining Anthem, she worked for UnitedHealthcare (2001 – 2007) in a variety of capacities including, most recently, as the Northeast Regional Vice President for Network Management. Ms. Hummel also served as the vice president for Hospital Network Management for UnitedHealth Networks and, prior to that, as the chief operating officer of UnitedHealthcare of the Midwest, Inc.

Ms. Hummel currently serves on the board, and as the Chair, of the Patient Centered Primary Care Collaborative, a nationally recognized organization dedicated to promoting high performing primary care as the foundation of an effective, efficient and equitable health care system.
