BOSTON, MA – July 7, 2022 – Commonwealth Care Alliance® (CCA), a national, multi-state healthcare organization with proven expertise in complex care coordination and delivery, today announced the appointment of healthcare industry veteran Wil Yu to lead CCA Health California, which offers Medicare Advantage plans in Santa Clara and San Joaquin counties.
As general manager, Yu will drive market development, including cultivating relationships with California officials and establishing key strategic partnerships to advance CCA’s mission of improving the health and well-being of individuals with significant needs. By working closely alongside Independent Physician Associations (IPAs), CCA Health California will focus on lowering barriers and providing unified, collaborative care to seniors in northern California.

Yu recently served as the chief operating officer at Chinese Community Health Plan, a 15,000-member health insurance plan, where he led strategy and development for new business, network expansion, and sales and marketing during a period of extreme market and operational volatility. Prior to that role, Yu was the vice president of healthcare and development for Clover Health, a Medicare Advantage plan, and head of Commercial for Lumiata, a health analytics company.
