Jeffrey Nkansah
Chief Executive Officer,
CalViva Health

Jeff Nkansah was appointed chief executive officer (CEO) of CalViva Health on August 1, 2021. Mr. Nkansah has been with CalViva Health for ten years. During those years, he served not only as one of the health plan’s liaison to regulators such as the Department of Health Care Services and the Department of Managed Health Care, he enforced compliance and privacy security standards in entry level and management roles, which led to CalViva Health charging him with overseeing the general operation of the Plan, as the Plan’s COO reporting directly to the CEO.

As he transitions into his new role as CEO, he plans to focus on the second half of CalViva Health’s mission–providing quality health care–by maintaining existing community partnerships and relationships, while building new community relationships with various partners and healthcare providers. He also envisions a renewed focus and attention to CalViva Health’s members and the factors affecting overall health in their community so they can continue to look for ways to promote the health and well-being of communities which may not yet have felt the reach of CalViva Health’s impact.
