Crone to Direct Planning for Health Exchange in Arkansas

December 14, 2010

Arkansas Insurance Commissioner Jay Bradford announced that Cynthia Crone of Little Rock has been hired to assist the Arkansas Insurance Department in planning for the development of its Health Insurance Exchange.

Crone, who holds a Master of Nursing Science degree from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) Graduate School, will serve as the Health Insurance Exchange Planning Manager at the department.

In 2004, Crone completed a three-year Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Executive Nurse Fellowship program designed to prepare nurse leaders to help lead and shape the health care system of the future. She was one of only twenty nurses from across the nation selected for this leadership program in 2001.

The federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which was signed into law in March of 2010, provides for Exchanges, where consumers can compare benefits and purchase health insurance, to be available by Jan. 1, 2014.
