In 2018, Eyles took over for Marilyn Tavenner, who became CEO of AHIP right after serving as the top administrator of Medicare and Medicaid under President Obama. Several insurers, including UnitedHealth Group and Humana, left the group during Tavenner’s tenure, although Humana later rejoined under Eyles.
