Complete Holdings adds board member

Veteran Ohio insurance exec to advise Lackey venture

Complete Holdings Group, the workers’ compensation revenue recovery company run by Jim Lackey, has added to its board a veteran of the health insurance sector in Ohio.

Bill Wilkins is the chief administrative officer for Coordinated Health Plans of Ohio Inc., that state’s only health care co-op and an entity that last fall secured a $129 million loan from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to launch operations. Before that, Wilkins was CEO of Ohio Health in Columbus. He also has been tax commissioner for Ohio.

“We are extremely proud that Bill is joining our board. His long history as a hospital CFO and CEO will be invaluable to assist us in better serving our hospital clients across the county,” said Lackey, CEO and chairman of Complete Holdings, which works with more than 350 hospitals around the country. “Bill’s firsthand knowledge running hospitals ranging from mid-size acute to large Level 1 Trauma Centers brings a level of corporate guidance sensitive to the daily struggles hospitals experience in this current environment of shrinking and complex reimbursement.”
