Health Plan Network Contracts Manager

An exciting opportunity has recently opened for a Network Contracts Manager to join the Insurance Specialist team at this highly-regarded Northern California Health Plan. You’ll work with a knowledgeable and dedicated team of finance experts who are advancing decision making models that affect and improve the lives of a million Californians.

As an active member in many California-based health insurance programs, this non-profit health insurance foundation is committed to improving the lives of men, women, and children throughout Northern California. The Health Plan Contracts Manager will support this mission by keeping a finger on the pulse of Health Insurance Policy and market conditions in California and the Western US to ensure and safeguard access to services for over a million members in CA.

Reporting to the Senior Director of Provider Services and Network Operations, the Manager of Network Contracts will play an important part in the daily operations and strategic direction of this Health Plan. Working in collaboration with financial and administrative agents of the organization, the Manager will directly support decision making and work flow through all levels of the company.

Although the Contract Manager’s primary responsibility will involve owning the provider contracting process (recruiting, negotiating, and actively managing) across a wide range of programs, this person will find a deep and fulfilling role in Health Plan Administration. By directly supporting the Director’s negotiating power with outside vendors, internal stakeholders, and regulatory agencies, the Manager will fulfill an important duty for the organization.

Living and working close to the San Francisco Bay Area, you’ll discover something wonderful for every mood. When you’re feeling fancy, you can go to San Francisco for an art exhibit and a live concert, or a short drive north lands you California Wine Country, where you’ll be confronted with amazing cuisine and the finest vin in America. When the Network Contract Manager is feeling energetic, you’ll find hundreds of short and long hikes, bike rides, and boat trips. With some of the nation’s best schools, most diverse cultures, and highest qualities of life, the area around San Francisco is a great place to put down roots.

The Health Plan Contracts Manager will play an integral role in supporting and advancing the business lines of this trusted health plan. This person will work with stakeholders across the organization, and directly affect tactical and strategic decision-making. Supporting you in this role will be a great team, a tenured and dedicated leadership, a generous benefits package, and a competitive compensation program.
