Insurance Maverick

Julia Hutchins is a leader with a rebellious spirit.  She is currently the chief executive officer of Colorado HealthOP, a new health insurance CO-OP that is turning health care upside down through collaboration and consumer engagement.  Colorado HealthOP is a consumer-governed company committed to making health insurance more affordable for and accessible to people who need it.

Julia has dedicated her career to making health care work better for people.  Prior to being appointed CEO of the CO-OP, she held leadership positions at private Medicaid and Medicare health plans and dabbled in binational health insurance, which covers care for families living and working on both sides of the US-Mexico border.   She has also worked for various government and non-profit advocacy organizations to support important public policy.
