ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The former executive director of MNsure is leaving without a severance package from the state.
April Todd-Malmlov resigned Tuesday night. She was under pressure thanks to a host of complications with insurance sign-ups under the federal health care law and for the timing of a recent international vacation while MNsure continued to struggle.
A MNsure spokeswoman says Todd-Malmlov, who was earning $136,680, had no severance package. It was not immediately clear if she was able to cash out remaining vacation or sick time.
The MNsure board quickly tapped an assistant state human services commissioner to replace her. Scott Leitz and the MNsure board chairman are expected to hold a Wednesday news conference. Next Monday is the enrollment deadline for Minnesotans who want coverage Jan. 1 under the new law.
