Peter Lee is the Executive Director of Covered California where he oversees the planning, development and ongoing administration and evaluation of the state’s health insurance marketplace. Covered California was established by the State of California to support the dramatic expansion of coverage enabled by the Affordable Care Act. Since 2014, Covered California has helped millions of Californians access affordable health coverage.

Before joining Covered California, Mr. Lee served in the Obama Administration, first as the Director of Delivery System Reform for the Office of Health Reform for Health and Human Services, then as the Deputy Director for the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, where he helped establish the new Center which is testing new payment and delivery system reforms that can promote that delivery of higher-quality, more affordable health care.

Before joining the Obama Administration, Mr. Lee led the Pacific Business Group on Health (PBGH), one of the premier coalitions of private and public purchasers in the nation, first as CEO and then as the Executive Director of National Health Policy. At PBGH, Mr. Lee oversaw negotiations with health plans, quality measurement and consumer engagement activities and the operations of California’s small employer purchasing pool. Prior to PBGH, Mr. Lee was the Executive Director of the Center for Health Care Rights, a consumer advocacy organization based in Los Angeles. In the 1980s, he worked on health care issues in Washington, DC, where he was the Director of Programs for the National AIDS Network.

He received his law degree from the University of Southern California and his undergraduate degree from the University of California, Berkeley. Mr. Lee has served on a range of boards and commissions, including the National Committee on Quality Assurance (NCQA); the National Quality Forum; the National Business Coalition on Health; and as co-chair of the Consumer/Purchaser Disclosure Project, as well as numerous national and statewide bodies.
