East Lansing, Michigan, June 17, 2014 – Medical Advantage, a leading healthcare consulting and management company headquartered in Michigan, has announced the appointment of Paul MacLellan as their new CEO. He will assume this new role beginning June 25, 2014.
He most recently served as a director at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan (BCBSM), where he supported several key business systems for BCBSM’s commercial products, including:
- Provider incentive programs – Physician Group Incentive Program (PGIP), Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH), Provider Delivered Care Management (PDCM), Organized Systems of Care (OSC), and specialist uplifts
- HEDIS / NCQA accreditation
- New risk adjustment processes introduced with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA)

Prior to working at BCBSM, Mr. MacLellan played a key role in the launch of two startup organizations. At RouteOne LLC, he held product management responsibilities for a number of solutions in the North American automotive finance industry. At RealAge.com Inc., he led the team that launched a highly innovative health risk assessment product.
Mr. MacLellan holds a Bachelor of Mathematics from the University of Waterloo in Canada.
Simultaneously, The Doctors Company, the nation’s largest physician-owned medical malpractice insurer, has completed its acquisition of Medical Advantage.
The Doctors Company owned a large stake in Medical Advantage prior to the acquisition, along with Physician Holding Company and about 200 independent physicians. Under the terms of the transaction, Medical Advantage joins The Doctors Company as a wholly owned subsidiary and will continue to operate out of its Ann Arbor, East Lansing, and Flint offices.
