Triple-S Management Corp. announced Monday the departure of Susan Rawlings-Molina, president and CEO of Socios Mayores en Salud Holdings Inc., the company’s Medicare subsidiary, effective immediately.
Carlos A. Carrero, the subsidiary’s current senior executive vice president and COO has been appointed as her successor. Rawlings is relocating back to the mainland United States to pursue personal interests, the company announced.
“We thank Susan for her dedicated service and contributions to Triple-S. She has been instrumental in unifying the MA business, streamlining our operations and increasing accountability, creating greater efficiency and positioning us for further improvement in our Star ratings,” said Triple-S Management Co. President Ramón Ruiz-Comas.
Carrero joined Socios Mayores en Salud in March 2011 as SVP and chief sales & marketing officer, and since January 2012 assumed the responsibilities of his current position, drawing upon his 30 years of experience in the health insurance field. In this role, he reported directly to Rawlings-Molina and oversaw all operational matters related to the company’s approximately 114,000 Medicare Advantage members.
Prior to joining the Triple-S subsidiary, he was executive director at Puerto Rico health insurance company First Medical from 2009-2010. Carrero also served from 1987 to 1997 as director of the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida’s Audit and Reimbursement department, with responsibility for more than $3.8 billion in Medicare payments.
“While Ms. Rawlings-Molina will be missed, Triple-S is fortunate to have an individual of Mr. Carrero’s caliber to replace her. He is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of Medicare, giving him the tools necessary to drive continued growth in our core business,” Ruiz-Comas added.
