Marta Green Named Executive Director of the National Institute for Public Employee Health Care Policy

On January 30, 2024, the National Institute for Public Employee Health Care Policy named Marta Green as executive director. Under Green’s leadership, the Institute will work to advance and safeguard the interests of public sector employees, retirees, and their dependents by developing and disseminating research that supports their access to affordable, comprehensive, high-quality health care in the United States.

Green brings a wealth of experience in health care delivery system reform, public policy, and public affairs. She has spent over two decades in the public sector, most recently as Chief of Health Plan Research and Administration at the California Public Employees Retirement System (CalPERS), the largest purchasing organization following the federal government where she oversaw benefit design, financing, and contracting to ensure comprehensive health benefits for 1.5 million public employees and their families.

Having served as senior advisor since the Institute’s launch last summer, Green played a crucial role in the organization’s formation and guided the development of its first research initiative on drug cost containment. In her new role, Green will continue to drive the Institute’s research initiatives, white paper development, educational events, and strategic partnerships, providing stakeholders and policymakers a clear understanding of the health care benefits offered to public sector employees, retirees, and their dependents.

Prior to her leadership role at CalPERS, Green served as the Chief Deputy Director of the California Department of Managed Health Care (DMHC) where she oversaw the daily operations of California’s health plan regulator and led organizational transformation to implement hundreds of new health plan requirements under the landmark federal Affordable Care Act. In 2021, Green was selected by the California Governor’s Office to serve as the project lead for the third-party administrator for the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines.
