PHOENIX, July 1 /PRNewswire/ -- The boards of directors for SCAN Health Plan Arizona and SCAN Long Term Care announced today the appointment of Thomas Lescault as president of SCAN's Arizona operations, effective immediately. In Arizona, SCAN offers a health plan for Medicare and Medicaid-eligible individuals and also provides long-term care services to individuals enrolled in the state's long-term care system in Maricopa County.
Lescault replaces Henry Osowski who has been overseeing SCAN Arizona since its launch in 2006. Osowski will now return to focusing on his role as the parent company's senior vice president of corporate development, exploring other expansion and business opportunities around the country.
"Tom has been instrumental in SCAN's development in Arizona, so we are particularly pleased that he will transition to assume this very important role within our organization," said Osowski. "SCAN's Arizona operations have surpassed our growth expectations for the past two years, and we know that under Tom's leadership we will continue to provide Medicare and Arizona Long Term Care Systems (ALTCS) beneficiaries the kind of quality, affordable and accessible care they deserve."
Lescault brings to his position more than three decades of diverse healthcare leadership experience, particularly in the managed care arena in Arizona. For the past seven years, Lescault has served as founder and managing partner of MRG Group, a national healthcare consulting firm. He has also held leadership positions with locally based Arizona Physicians IPA, Intergroup of Arizona and Health Net. Earlier, Lescault had served in various executive capacities with the State of Arizona.
A graduate of Princeton University and a resident of Paradise Valley, Lescault has been active for many years in a wide variety of local organizations, including serving on the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation board of directors, the Area Agency on Aging Advocacy Committee, and the Valley Leadership Program and Arizona Town Hall.
SCAN Health Plan Arizona is a Medicare Advantage contractor currently offering a Medicare Special Needs Plan for beneficiaries also enrolled in the ALTCS program. SCAN Long Term Care offers services to nearly 2,000 beneficiaries who are enrolled in the ALTCS program in Maricopa County. Both are part of the not-for-profit SCAN Group that for more than 30 years has been focusing on the unique needs of people with Medicare and Medicaid.
