Scott Leitz


Despite the revelation that Leitz was on probation following a drunken driving conviction, his probationary period as the leader of the MNsure health insurance exchange ended in May when the agency’s board promoted him to permanent CEO. Credited with steering MNsure’s glitch-plagued website toward stability after the resignation of his predecessor, he announced in October that more than 364,000 Minnesotans had obtained coverage through the exchange, reducing the state’s uninsured rate from 8.2 to 4.9 percent.
