ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The former executive director of Minnesota's health insurance marketplace didn't receive a severance package from the state when she abruptly resigned.
April Todd-Malmlov resigned Tuesday night. She was under pressure thanks to a host of complications with insurance sign-ups under the federal health care law and for the timing of a recent international vacation while MNsure continued to struggle.
A spokeswoman says Todd-Malmlov, who was earning $136,680, had no severance package. It wasn't immediately clear if she was able to cash out remaining vacation or sick time.
The MNsure board quickly tapped an assistant state human services commissioner to replace her. Scott Leitz and the board chairman are expected to hold a Wednesday news conference. Monday is the enrollment deadline for Minnesotans who want coverage Jan. 1 under the law.
