Kevin Slusarz joins Uphold Health as Chief Operating Officer

For the better part of 2019, we have searched for the right person to join our founding team as a true partner in taking Uphold to the next level and I am pleased to say, the search is complete.

We are excited to announce that Kevin M. Slusarz has joined the Uphold Health team as Chief Operating Officer (COO).

As COO, Kevin will focus on high-level business strategy as well as provide leadership on business operations and finance. In addition, he will focus on bringing further structure, organization and scale to Uphold as we move into our next stage of growth.

Kevin brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to Uphold with expertise in the health insurance industry across various functions including operations, finance, strategy, product, sales and marketing, distribution, regulatory and compliance, account management and line of business (P&L) support.

Most recently, he was responsible for aspects of product strategy for Health Care Service Corporation (HCSC), where he focused on developing and stress-testing an innovative product offering, supported by a value-based payment model and a digital platform that focused on mitigating & eliminating customer and client friction points.  Kevin is also an expert on the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

Prior to his role at HCSC, Kevin worked in the long-term care business in various capacities. He holds his MBA in Finance from DePaul University and has a BA in English from the University of Utah.

This is truly just the beginning for Uphold as we reinvent the end of life experience for the modern family.
