LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Humana Inc. announced that it is promoting health care industry veteran Sue Schick to president of the company’s Group, Military and Specialty businesses, effective Sept. 1, 2021. Schick came to Humana at the beginning of 2020 to join the segment’s leadership team, with oversight of employer group sales and market operations.
Schick succeeds Chris Hunter, who has decided to leave the company at the end of the year to pursue other opportunities. Hunter, who joined Humana in 2014 as chief strategy officer, played an instrumental role in advancing the company’s strategy, particularly as the it emerged as a stand-alone entity after the termination of the Aetna transaction. In 2018, he took over leadership responsibility for the company’s Group, Specialty, and Military lines of business.
As Schick moves into the segment president role, she is excited about the opportunities across the segment – from the commercial space to Humana’s longtime work with the federal TRICARE military health program.
Before she joined Humana, Schick spent 16 years in a range of senior-level leadership roles at United Healthcare in its Medicaid and Commercial businesses. In all, Schick has more than 30 years of experience in the industry, across sales, employee benefits, regional management, strategy, and growth.
Schick, who received her Master’s in Healthcare Delivery Science from Dartmouth College, is also a committed volunteer, serving as the board chair of Randolph-Macon College, on the national March of Dimes board, and previously as chair of the Pennsylvania Commission for Women. In 2017, she was named a “Woman to Watch” by Modern Healthcare.
Humana’s Group, Military, and Specialty business currently has 1.2 million employer group members, 12 million Commercial and Medicare Specialty members, and also partners with the Department of Defense and the Defense Health Agency to administer the TRICARE health program for six million U.S. Military active duty, retirees and family member beneficiaries in the East Region.
