Dan Yunker has been named CEO of the Met­ro­pol­i­tan Chicago Health­care Coun­cil ef­fec­tive Sept. 30.

Yunker, 45, has been with the coali­tion for almost 10 years. Most re­cently he has served as CEO of the group’s health in­for­ma­tion ex­change and CEO of the group’s Land of Lin­coln Health, a not-for-profit, con­sumer-gov­erned health in­surer that was started with $160 mil­lion in seed money from the Pa­tient Pro­tec­tion and Af­ford­able Care Act.

Land of Lin­coln, the only co-op in­surer in Illi­nois and one of 23 across the coun­try, has strug­gled to en­roll mem­bers on the state’s in­surance ex­change. Like other coops na­tion­ally, Land of Lin­coln has had dif­fi­cul­ties com­pet­ing with wellestab­lished in­sur­ers. Yunker will re­place Kevin Scan­lan, 65, who is re­tir­ing.
