Anna Sever has been named president of Magellan Federal, Magellan Health’s government services arm.
In her new role, Sever will guide Magellan Federal in upgrading operational controls and modifying processes, structure and technology to better position the company to pursue larger federal opportunities, Magellan Health announced from Frisco, Texas on Tuesday.
“Anna has set a clear strategy to target new markets for growth and expansion for Magellan Federal in the years to come, and I’m excited to see the new ways she will lead,” commented Magellan Health CEO Derrick Duke.
Sever holds over two decades of experience in working with county, state and federal governments in the areas of new business development, capture management and program development with a focus on Medicaid and Medicare, behavioral health, child welfare and developmental disabilities.
Her time with Magellan Federal began in 2021, when she joined the company as senior vice president of its strategy and growth unit.
Before joining Magellan, Sever oversaw Maximus’ health business development unit and contributed to the organization’s work on Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and Veterans Affairs initiatives.
Earlier in her career, Sever served as a gubernatorial appointee in an Umbrella Health and Welfare agency, during which she led the operations of the Department of Health and Welfare.
“I am honored to have been selected to serve as the leader of Magellan Federal and manage the team of over 2,500 dedicated individuals offering complex wellness services to our nation’s fighting forces, federal civilian employees and their families,” Sever said.
“I look forward to the work we will accomplish while focusing on our goal to empower government personnel, military service members, and civilians to live a healthier, more productive life,” she emphasized.
Complementing her work in the federal healthcare industry, Sever currently serves as vice president of Norwin Band Aids’ Board of Directors and is a member of the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
