Dr. Anselm is committed to evidence-based solutions to improving the quality of medical services and lowering their cost.
It has been my privilege to serve as Medical Director and Chief Medical Officer with several health plans in New York. In this capacity I try to find the balance between the business of health insurance and the needs of our members and doctors. I am committed to an evidence-based approach to solving problems, and to leveraging information to support implementation of solutions. As a complement to my work with health insurance plans, I hold the rank of Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai where I teach undergraduate medical students, residents and MPH students on a variety of topics.
My current position is SVP Medical Director, Healthfirst. Some of my previous positions were Chief Medical Officer at HIP Health Plan of New York, FidelisCare, Health Republic Insurance of New York, and Medical Director of the Special Investigations Unit at Coventry HealthCare. I previously served as a Senior Fellow at the R Street Institute.
My community involvement and organizational participation includes:
Board Member; Physicians for a National Health Plan, Metro NY Chapter
Work Group on Tobacco in Medicaid Managed Care
Fellow, New York Academy of Medicine
