Meet Some Altegra Health Team Members
Cassandra Palacios, Community Link Manager
As Community Link Manager, Cassandra (Cassy) Palacios leads Altegra Health’s Miami Lakes, Florida-based call center processes designed to help health plan members enroll in community-based programs that save them money and improve their overall health. Having started as a phone agent in 2008, Cassy’s career has expanded at a rapid pace.
Early on, Cassy was tapped to serve as the call center’s first acting Team Lead, which led to her securing the official Team Lead position, followed by a promotion to Supervisor. As the company continued to grow and fuel the demand for additional managers and leaders, Cassy ascended to a newly-created Manager role and is now one of four operations managers at Altegra Health’s Florida headquarters. Altegra Health’s eight regional offices also include call centers in California, Georgia, the Philippines, and Puerto Rico.
Cassy says her career with Altegra Health is challenging and rewarding. “Although I’m less hand’s on with individual members now, I love learning about the business and back end of how we serve members and their health plans,” she says. “We’re all working toward the same goals and building a culture that makes every call beneficial.”
Angela Hacksel-Newmark, Vice President, IT Planning
In her role as one of Altegra Health’s most senior information technology executives, Angela Hacksel-Newmark oversees enterprise-wide strategic planning for the technology team. As Angela explains it, “I work with the organization’s senior leaders to plan the direction of technology, and ensure that what we want to have accomplished from a technology perspective happens.”
Angela’s responsibilities include establishing governance processes to ensure that Altegra Health’s IT objectives are achieved and ensuring that company resources are used appropriately, particularly in the areas of software development, office networks and computers, and infrastructure. “I also support the office of the CIO and act as the ‘right hand’ for budgeting, security, operational process, governance, and more,” she says.
Following her early self-described “grunt” assignments, Angela advanced to a Business Analyst position in 2009, a role requiring detailed knowledge of business processes and IT best practices, as well as the ability to effectively manage simultaneous projects. In 2012, she was promoted to Director, IT Strategic Planning, followed in 2014 by a promotion to Sr. Director, IT Strategic Planning, and in 2015 was promoted to Vice President, IT Planning to better reflect the continued expansion of her responsibilities.
Angela credits Altegra Health with championing her career growth and advancement every step of the way. “The company has been totally supportive, through SCRUM and ITIL® Certification, through two kids, and providing me with the requisite flexibility in my schedule to allow me to earn my MBA in Healthcare Administration,” she says. “Altegra Health is a growing and expanding company that encourages others to excel.”
Phil Guza, Corporate Trainer
“Back in 2000, I was working for HIP Health Plan and decided to give it a shot at SSC (Social Service Coordinators is now the Eligibility & Enrollment Division of Altegra Health).
SSC started in a small office in Miami. I was one of the first employees. I joined as a combination Medicare Savings Program (MSP) Intake and Case Manager. We did everything from making phone calls to completing applications for members to opening the mail. I’ve been an Outreach Supervisor and, most recently, I’m honored to hold the position of Corporate Trainer. As a Corporate Trainer, I have the privilege of training our new hires in the multitude of services we now offer at Altegra Health. I’m motivated by the fact that, even though I’m no longer on the phones with our members directly, my trainees collectively can do so much more than I ever could by myself. So, I’m still on the phones vicariously through them.”
Nadia Garcia, Support Services
“I’ve had the pleasure of working at SSC (now the Eligibility & Enrollment Division of Altegra Health) for 11 years. When I first began with the company, I was the only employee in what is known today as the Support Services Department.
I have watched our department grow to help thousands of people each and every month. I’m proud to tell people where I work and how we really do make a difference in the lives of those that we serve.”
