He also has extensive experience designing and implementing consumer driven health plans (CDHPs) for groups, achieving very favorable financial results.

Doug brings high-level expertise to Burnham, having worked for one of the Big Three consulting firms, as well as two major health insurance carriers in both sales and management. His work with larger employers includes a large national resort and hotel group, one of the largest operators of private golf clubs, and California’s largest hospital district.
