Dr. David Rearick
Dr. Rearick’s career began as a family physician practicing for twenty years. In the face of a changing medical landscape, he obtained an MBA from Emory in 1991 changing his focus to managing the health of populations rather than individuals.

He was also instrumental in taking the Plan through NCQA accreditation. As the Chief Medical Officer for a national healthcare cost containment company, he further broadened his knowledge of the healthcare industry to include bill review, out-of-network negotiation, TPA services, and contracting while serving in several business development and executive roles.
