Insurance comparison firm SelectQuote has announced the appointment of Dr. Alan Muney as part-time chief medical officer and Simeon Schindelman as senior healthcare advisor. Muney will focus on healthcare strategy solutions for SelectQuote healthcare services. Schindelman will lead and advise solution development for various healthcare channels.

Muney is a physician and executive leader with more than 35 years of experience leading healthcare payor and provider organizations.

He has also served in chief medical officer roles at Oxford Health Plans and UnitedHealthcare.

Schindelman has 35 years of experience in the healthcare industry.

“Dr. Muney’s extensive background in optimizing care delivery for Medicare Advantage and implementing innovative healthcare delivery will assist SelectQuote in continuing to grow our healthcare business,” said Bob Grant, president of SelectQuote. “His broad knowledge and experience in medical practice, policy and programs and his ability to identify opportunities for operational improvement will help our healthcare service delivery and business overall. Additionally, adding Simeon to our team will help us continue to grow healthcare services while improving and expanding our current distribution business. He has worked with several emerging healthcare businesses during his career, and his innovative and entrepreneurial spirit in the industry will be an asset to SelectQuote.”
