Happy Retirement, Health Insurance Commissioner Ganim, and Welcome, Commissioner Tigue!

  • 07 Feb 2021

The Care Transformation Collaborative of Rhode Island wishes former Rhode Island Health Insurance Commissioner Marie Ganim the best in her retirement this month and welcomes her successor, Commissioner Patrick Tigue.

Marie Ganim dedicated decades to state service and her work has been instrumental to health care policy. As a committed co-convener and leader on the Board of Directors for CTC-RI, she helped guide this organization through important strategic planning and governance steps to elevate its work and impact in Rhode Island.

Commissioner Tigue joins OHIC with a track record of expanding access to care and driving value in the health care system through delivery system reform and payment reform. Prior to joining OHIC, Commissioner Tigue served as the assistant secretary for health and Medicaid director for RI’s Executive Office of Health and Human Services where he led the state’s Medicaid program. During such a critical time for policies and developments that improve the quality and efficiency of health care service delivery and outcomes, CTC-RI looks forward to working collaboratively with Commissioner Tigue in the months ahead.
